FOTD: Zero To Hero
I love cats – I want to bury my face in their fur.
Which makes me evolve into a wheezing ball of good for nothing.
Needless to say i’m not “positively glowing” today.
But hey at least that mimics a job interview face perfectly because nerves keep me up too! Amy mentioned she has some interviews coming up and she’d like to look her best so here’s how I get to a perky face again in winter!
Oh just a quickie first – I thought i’d show you how cool the weather was here today!
It’s so beautiful here in Holland right now, and foggy.
Silent Hill scene incoming, by noon you couldn’t see further than 50 meters.
Best weather in the world.
Anyway back to bare face!
Get that base on first!
After foundation, concealer and powder I enjoy cheering the face back up during these grey months with blush, bronzer and then some shimmery highlighter on these points:
On job interviews I tend to pull wide eyes in an attempt to look as active as possible (reporting for duty!) so I do enjoy expressive brows!
Of course you don’t need to go this crazy with it, filling in the base a little is fine, but hey.. ;D
Then on the lids I used a light gold from the Sleek Sunset palette, and under the brows a matte highlight.
Of course some gel liner and mascara as well!
Aaand then lastly some lips:
I usually line them right outside and inside of the their natural edge very lightly with a dark red or pink shade & smudge that with my finger to make them more defined. Topping that with a tinted lipbalm at most because I want to look awake but not like I spent hours in front of the mirror!
Besides looking better, I feel like that routine is mostly about feeling better – confident and perky as hell for me. It helps me slip into character.
Another staple for me is putting my hair up and wearing a bright jacket of some sort..
Anything to get the representative to remember me instead of the applicant on the other seat!
