Job Interview Make Up

Again, sorry for the lack of posts lately. I got an emergency dentist appointment on Monday and had the first session of root canal treatment. The agony only just started to subside yesterday. That is why I hate the dentists. 

Anyway earlier today I went to a job interview and I thought I would share the make up I wore with you. I tried to keep it very soft and natural. Nothing over the top and no bright lip :( I wanted to look as professional as possible. 

I blow dried my hair and left it loose. I know most people say it should be tied back for an interview. Personally though, I always wear my hair down (unless it is really hot or my hair is dirty and I cannot be bothered to wash it). I feel less confident and less like myself having it tied up.

Excuse the puffy face! The swelling has only just started to go down.

I think the interview went well so fingers crossed I am successful and get the job. Anyway I hope you are all having a lovely day! I will try to get back to regular posting now that I am almost pain free (or enough that I don't have to take Panadeine Forte). 

What make up would you wear to a job interview?


  1. pretty :) fingers crossed you get the job! x

  2. Love what you did with your eyes behind the glasses! :D

    Good luck with the interview :)

  3. Very pretty, yet not over the top for a job interview.
    Hope it went well....good luck!

  4. A really pretty look, I love the look of the Burberry blush and the LM primer as well. How does the primer hold up with your shadows? I have my fingers crossed for your job interview, I hope you get it :)

    1. The LM primer is great. It really helps shadows to last. I also wear it without shadow on top often as it is coloured and really brightens up the lids.

      Thanks :)

  5. I also wear glasses so have to up the amp a little when it comes to my eye makeup. I love your FOTD - really fresh and natural looking. Good luck!

    1. Glasses can be such a hindrance when it comes to eye makeup!

      Thanks :)
