So today I had an interview and I decided stand out from the crowd with my fresh faced make up and outfit. I wore a red skirt suit rather than my customary black/brown/grey combination and put my hair up in a long pony tail with a slight quiff - the photo has been cropped by blogger (thanks a lot blogger ;P)
I had to get up at 5am as the interview was at 8am so by the time I had taken the photos it was about 6 o'clock in the evening. All I did was top up my lip gloss and translucent pressed powder around the nose! So I think it's looking kind of good as it really covered up my sleepless night and long stressful day!
This look took about 10 minutes so I could spend longer looking at my notes and not rushing to get there on time.
List of products used
e.l.f Tone correcting concealer in Medium
Lumiere Cosmetics 3D Eye in Rested (a great matte yellow powder I used around the eyes to pep up the skin and over the eye lid to lighten and add contrast to the brown used in the crease.
Barefaced Beauty mineral foundation in Sincere
Urban Decay Primer Potion
Sleek Storm Palette (matte light brown)
Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks in Velvet Plum
e.l.f Waterproof Mascara
e.l.f Plumping Lipglaze in Ruby Kiss (my new favourite gloss)
I decided not to use any eyeliner so as to make my eyes look bigger and more wide awake. I needed all the help I could get in this department!
My interviewer was wearing a dazzling mauve sort of eye shadow. I know I should have been concentrating on her questions but she had amazing eye lashes and her mascara was just perfect, unfortunately she was wearing the wrong shade of blusher and far too much of it!
A tutorial will follow, I was just a bit shattered after my long day!
