“First impression is the last impression”, this stands especially true when it comes to situations like a job interview. To ensure you look your presentable best, we’ve put together a list of foolproof makeup tips that will leave a lasting impression on the interviewer.

Foundation
 

Foundation

Use a foundation shade that’s closest to your skin tone. You don’t want your makeup to look oxidised under the bright white light and the bunch of professionals interviewing you. Go for a high coverage yet easily blendable foundation such as the Lakmé Kareena Kapoor Khan Absolute Face Contour, it adapts to your natural skin tone and looks flattering under all lights.

Eyeliner
 

Eyeliner

Go for soft pencil eyeliner rather than a liquid one which might end up giving you a dramatic look. Simple but presentable is the key, the Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate Kajal – Black doubles up as a kajal and eyeliner to give you the perfect smudge-proof eye look that lasts all day.

Mascara
 

Mascara

Fake lashes and clumped old mascara are a strict no! If you don’t wear mascara regularly skip this step as it might make your lashes feel heavier and uncomfortable. However, if you’re wearing one ensure you apply only one smooth stroke that will make your eyes look bigger and awake. The Lakme Absolute Flutter Secrets Volumizing Mascara – Black will do the trick.

Lipstick
 

Lipstick

Can you wear a red lipstick to a job interview is a never ending debate. While some companies are okay to the idea others may not be (if only they knew the power of a red pout). A sheer lip gloss or nude matte lipstick that does not wash you out such as the Lakme Absolute Flutter Secrets Volumizing Mascara – Blackis a good choice. Its matte formula is transfer proof and won’t leave lipstick marks on the glass of water or coffee mug.

Perfume
 

Perfume

While you may want to leave a lingering fragrance behind, a lot of people are allergic to certain fragrances. Put on a mild antiperspirant deodorant such as the Dove Go Fresh Spray Antiperspirant Deodorant Grapefruit & Lemongrass Scent that will control odour. Skip perfume altogether.
