You’ve researched the company you’re interviewing at, brushed up on your knowledge required for the position you’re interviewing for, rehearsed the questions you have for your potential employer and even picked out your outfit. So why leave your makeup for the last minute?
While you don’t want to be hired based solely on your appearance (it is actually illegal—just saying!), you do want to appear confident, professional and well groomed.
The key is to keep your makeup subtle and looking as natural as possible. “If you have too much concealer and foundation that appears cakey or fake, you may not be revealing your true self. Go for a lasting makeup look that will take you through your anxiety, sweat and heat in this humid weather,” affirmed Agnes Koh, President and Founder of Etiquette & Image International at IMM Shopping Mall.
So what kind of makeup should you be wearing to an interview? We break it down for you.
