Presenting yourself well is essential to a successful job interview. You can have a look at previous posts to see how to dress the part, but today’s focus is on the perfect makeup. Dress the Part has enlisted the help of professional makeup artist Gracie Revington, to provide a step-by-step guide to a natural, no-fuss look that’s ideal for a job interview.

Waking up fresh faced, bright eyed and bushy tailed is the stuff of dreams for most women. In reality we might need a little extra help to look the part for a job interview. “A natural look is great, for a fashion industry job interview.” Gracie explained, “You don’t want your interviewer to be distracted by excessive makeup.”

In the video below Gracie shows you how to do achieve a naturally pretty look in less than ten minutes. This makes it the perfect day-to-day work makeup, allowing you to enjoy a bit longer in bed!

[Gracie’s key products include: Benefit primer, Revlon foundation, Illamasqua translucent powder, Nars bronzer, Urban Decay Naked Eye Palette, Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner, Topshop eye crayon, Lancome Hypnose mascara, MAC skin finish, Illamasqua cream blusher, Maybelline lip liner, Topshop lipstick.]

Want to try something more fashion forward? ASOS stylist Gamze warned against incorporating too many trends in one outfit – and this applies to makeup too. Perhaps you could try adding a bold lipstick, exaggerated cat flick eyeliner or a bright eye shadow, but the key is choosing just one trend and not overdoing it.

Whatever you decide, “Practice the day before,” Gracie advises, so you’re ready to impress on the day.
