Here are some tips that I've ripped off from a web site.
I sincerely hope they are of some use because after reading thru, I've a rough idea of what to wear/makeup.
If you're really lost for ideas ( for makeup ), I suggest you to take a look at youtube. Search for people like "amyb" and "ricolovesmac". These 2 ladies gives you step by step guides to makeup.
- Wash and dry your hair the night before the interview. By getting that out of the way, you'll save time the day of the big event.
- If your hair is long, consider pulling it back in a ponytail. This way, you won't be tempted to absentmindedly fiddle with it.
- Even if you don't use hair spray every day, a light dusting of it will keep flyaways at bay.
- Skip the flashy hair accessories.
- Keep your hair out of your face at all costs. Long bangs falling into your eyes are sexy for a date, but they won't project a professional image. If you need to get them out of your face, using a simple barrette or bobby pin is a fine solution.
- Give yourself extra time. If you take five minutes to get ready in the morning, allow yourself 15. Trust me, weird things pop up, so it's better to build in some wiggle room.
- For your face, you probably won't need much more than concealer and loose powder. If you have blemishes or uneven skin tone, by all means, use a foundation! But if you don't need much coverage, just skip it.
The night before your interview, exfoliate chapped lips by scrubbing them with a warm, wet washcloth. Follow with a generous coating of lip balm.
- Wear lipstick, not lip gloss. Gloss is too shiny and youthful for a formal occasion like an interview.
- Use eye shadows in neutral shades such as tan, brown, and cream. A little bit of shimmer is fine, but stay away from adding a lot of shine to your eyelids.
- Mascara and a thin line of smudged pencil eyeliner are really all you need. Skip the liquid liner, even if you can apply it like a pro.
- Well-groomed brows show that you pay attention to details. Tweeze any stray hairs that threaten to give you a Bert-like monobrow, and if you have brow gel, use it to set your brows in place. (A tiny bit of hair gel, diluted with water, can do the same thing.)
- Applying a little bit of blush makes everyone look healthier. Use this rather than bronzer for a natural-looking, healthy glow.
- Don't wear any. ( which is quite true. if you really do want to use, use as little as possible. for me, i sprayed my chanel like a glitter and had it all over me. but thats only staining my clothes with the scent. I dont want it to be too over powering )
-Unless you have naturally clean, even, hangnail-free nails, get a manicure.
- It doesn't matter whether your nails are long or short, but they should be neatly filed.
- A neutral nail is fool-proof, so look for barely-there beige and pink polishes. Classic red can work, too, but use your judgment: It'll probably fit in at an ad agency, but not at a conservative law firm. I would not recommend a French manicure; some people think they're classy, but others think they're corny, so just go with a single color.
(try not to paint red unless it has always been your fav color. I have this feeling that they may think you're too CC wannabe so it gives them a really cheessy impression)
Finally, SMILE. All of the primping and grooming doesn't mean a thing if you aren't excited to be there. Good luck
Should any moderator feels that this isn't the correct place for me to post this, can you kindly shift it for me ? Thanks alot !
