Knowledge, skills, and experience are the keys to landing your perfect dream job, right? Feeling confident and prepared helps you perform your best. Here are a few makeup tips and tricks that will boost your confidence inside and out!

How to Choose Makeup Products for Your Interview Look

Apart from dressing well, achieving the perfect look includes finding the products that work well with your skin tone and type. If you haven’t had a chance to experiment with makeup to find what best suits you, e.l.f. Cosmetics has a few recommendations to get you started.

When in doubt, try using the Perfect Face Palette that works well with all skin tones. This palette includes eyeshadows, lipsticks, a highlighter, and a blush to build your look. When trying to select the right lip color, start with a light colored lip tint. And remember, your makeup is incomplete without a proper brush collection. Read more about makeup must-haves.

How to Do Your Interview Makeup

To achieve a subtle yet confident look, try a brightening face primer and foundation. Then use a highlighter to add a delicate glow to your face. To keep your makeup look clean and bright, we suggest keeping your eye shadow and liner subtle and natural. However, if you find that your eyes need more definition, experiment with the Smooth Matte Eyeshadow for an elegant finish. But don’t forget to add a little color to your face with a blush or bronzer. Read more about how to rock the nude look.


Peach is a great color to use as a blush to boost your interview look. Our Peach Bundle is a collection of lipstick, eyeshadow, and blush that perfectly combines to enhance your complexion. Add a peachy nude Moisturizing Lipstick and a thin layer of Shimmering Facial Whip and you are good to go!

Need to Sweat Proof Your Makeup?

Prep your makeup to last the whole interview with a few waterproof products. We recommend using a lightweight primer, oil-free foundation,  waterproof eyeliner, and mascara.

For your lips, tinted lip oil or lip stains add just the right pop of color for perfect lasting lips. Don’t forget to finish your look with a makeup setting powder or spray that locks your makeup in place.
