This is a huge focus since you will be making consistent eye contact for a long period of time. In addition to a good night’s sleep, remember to do these three things: conceal, brighten and emphasize.

Use concealer over dark circles and brighten with an eye brightener like eye bright on the dark eye areas–don’t forget the inner corner of the eye next to the nose bridge.

For eye shadow, stay away from very dark all-over eyelids and brightly colored shadows. Keep it simple. Use one or two nude shades on the eyelid and a bit of deep brown or taupe shadow in the outer corner of the eye for definition. For emphasis, use the deep shadow to line the lash line.

Finally, top it all off with brown or black mascara.


Have you ever been in a situation when someone is talking to you but you can’t hear her because her lip color is too loud? Bold lipsticks, bubble gum pink and super shiny gloss can be distracting, which is why for an interview, you go nude. Plus, nude lipstick = less of a chance it’s showing up on your teeth.


Moisturize, conceal imperfections and use an all-over cover-up. A light pink blush adds the perfect amount of tint. A little matte bronzer can look good when used in moderation, but hold off on the 80′s blush trend until your new-job celebration.
