Easy Makeup for Interviews | Everyday Makeup Edit #2

Well, it’s officially internship and interview season! I wanted to share what kind of makeup I usually wear to interviews, or basically the makeup that I do when I need to look a little more professional for any occasion. I like to keep it really simple and natural looking, just to enhance my natural features more than do any crazy makeup. If you are headed to interviews this year, I recommend just going with your everyday makeup for the most part.


I don’t wear foundation on a daily basis, so this is what really steps up the look for me. I’ve been sticking with the Rimmel Stay Matte Primer and L’Oreal Pro-Glow Foundation. This is a really great combo if you have oily-combination skin like I do. For concealer, I used the Benefit Boi-ing concealer. I wanted to make sure all my dark circles are covered up and I look awake. This is a duo product, so I also used the Watts Up Highlighter to highlight the skin.

Powder Products

I set my eyes with the Tarte Finishing Powder to make sure my concealer doesn’t crease. Then I set my whole face with the Rimmel Stay Matte Translucent Powder. I bronzed with a favorite of mine the Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer, added a little blush with Tarte Birthday (swatch) and a little extra highlighter with theBalm Mary Lou-Manizer (review). These are just all my go-to products, though I switched out the blush color depending on the season!

I forgot to photograph this product, but it isn’t sold anymore anyway. I used Urban Decay’s Gwen Stefani palette. This one of my favorite that I own because it’s all natural products. My go-to look is a cool-toned brown in the crease, a shimmer shade all over the lid, deepen the outer corners with a deeper brown, and then highlight with a creme shade.

My lip product has been a favorite of mine over the past few months and it’s a ColourPop blotted lip in Drip. This is a warm-toned rosy mauve color and I like it because it looks really natural, but just enough to make your lips stand out. Plus the formula is great and doesn’t look over the top!

Brows were my normal Anastasia brow powder and mascara was Benefit Roller Lash. Love both of these products!

  1. I’m such a makeup lover that it can be hard to remember to bring it down a little bit for interviews. I love a good natural “i’m wearing makeup but i’m not look” for anything professional! Great post!
    xo, G


  2. I haven’t had a change to try the l’oreal foundations, but heard so many good things about them! thanks for this list 🙂


  3. I always wear the same make-up, regardless of the event (I guess I’m just a little boring that way), but I love that you actually have a interview make-up look!


  4. This is really helpful! I definitely think you’ve got to keep it simple for interviews and other professional events – your skills should be what they focus on, not your makeup or anything else! And then it’s lower stress when you’re getting ready the morning before, too!
