Job Interview Makeup Tutorial with Mary Kay

    At my University, graduation commencements just ended last week. A few of my good friends threw their caps, and now eagerly await joining the real word; you know what that means: finding a job!

    Landing a job in L.A. is rough, but a great first impression can speak volumes. The way your makeup looks absolutely plays into your interviewer’s perception of you. You want to look polished and put together, ready to take on anything they throw at you.

    With the help of Mary Kay, I’m going to show you a pretty job interview makeup look that’s professional yet fun. I played up the eyes, which I personally think is the key to interview makeup. Your eyes show that you’re engaged and interested, and you don’t want anything else distracting from them. With that being said, you want to enhance— not drown them in anything too heavy. I used a neutral green shadow to make my brown eyes really pop.

    Now, I don’t want to toot my own horn here, but I’ve landed six out of eight job interviews I’ve been on in my entire life. Of course, I can’t attribute that solely to my makeup, but it had to play a part, right? 🙂 Being made up can at least give you a little boost of confidence and make you feel more put together, ready to face anything! And again, don’t go overboard. You don’t want to distract, you want to shine!

    Congrats and good luck to all new grads and job seekers out there.



    1. I’m a recruiter in real life so I can attest that the first impression is a lasting one. I have never hired someone b/c their makeup was good, but I would if I ever interviewed someone that actually had good makeup! LOL Love the video!

    2. First impressions are everything and this is so true. A little makeup shows effort and presentation regardless of the job.

    3. Makeup for job interviews can be tricky! I think it really depends on the company you’re meeting with—some creative types will appreciate a pop of crazy eyeshadow color, for example! When in doubt subtle and neutral is probably the way to go though. 🙂
