Job application: perky face tips
There’s these teenie weenie things I do to make myself look more perked up when going to a job interview.
(Those same things I do when Poltergeists have been keeping me up at night)
As I am visiting my mom at the moment, and am carrying the same things I wore to the interview..
I thought i’d show you! ^_^
I don’t wake up all pasted like Carrie does in the Carrie Diaries.. no one does.
So get ready for a barely slept – face.
Mug why do you have such a big mug?
The better you can eat me with?
1) Perk my skin up with a good moisturizer
This BWC vitamin C one is great, and it smells like vitamins too… nom nom.
2) Even it all out
I used to love the Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation, but i’m not sure whether the brand is cruelty free so won’t be repurchasing.
There’s enough “brightening” foundations out there though, I really want to try the 100% pure one.
For a job, I do always use powder in my T-zone to not look oily because of the extra stress.
However I feel skin tends to look more awake without.
Today I did as well because I wanted to show you exactly what I wore to the interview!
3) Cream blusher
Tends to look a lot less dull than powder blusher, more like a glow from within, even though that probably sounds cheesy.
4) Blusher on the tip of my nose, temples, hairline and jawline!
I love doing that!!
When looking like death itself, just having blusher on the apples of my cheeks looks weird.
But spreading it on key points of the face looks a lot more perky!
Those bags and circles..
When i’m lazy there won’t be a lot of pin pointing, however when that’s not the case here’s my magic: bags & circles! ;)
I also definitely apply some on the outer corners of my eyes, those get red on a lot of people!
6) Brows & shadow
My brows will get a quick wash of brown for definition.
For a job application I think this is so important, because they’ll be looking at your eyes to read you.
Slightly filled in brows not only frame them, but also pull attention to them.
Besides that i’ll apply some primer and light up the eyes with the first two shades of that Catrice palette.
The second one all over, the first one under the brow and on the inner corner.
I never ever apply a lipstick full – on for a job, instead I like applying a little and really rubbing it into my lips.
That way you can’t really tell there’s anything on the lips texture-wise.
I just look more flushed.
Besides that I like to put my hair up when going for a job, either in two ponytails or one, or a bun.
Anything perky and UP shows perky and UP!!
Also, I like wearing light things but combined with a bright color.
Ah and to finish it off: BIG eyes, I pull big eyes!
At that point i’m ready to work! And get that job!
And well.. go back to bed for some snoozing. But we won’t do that.
Have a great day!!
