Job interview


  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 and if you have brow gel, use it to set your brows in place.
  • 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. You don't want your interviewer put off by a scent she doesn't find appealing. Everyone is different. Skip it altogether.
  • 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 foolproof, so look for 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.
The most important of all? Smile! All of the primping and grooming doesn't mean a thing if you don't look  excited to be there.
