Simple Work/Interview Look

I have a really simple work appropriate or interview appropriate makeup look.

I used Smashbox Colour Corrector* primer to help correct my redness, for foundation I went with No7 Beautifully Matte* in Calico which is a pretty good colour match although a wee touch yellow for me now (it looks even more in the picture below for some reason!!).   It gives great coverage though, I used a damp beauty sponge to apply it.  To conceal my blemishes I used mac Pro Longwear concealer in NC15, I tend to put this on the blemishes and let it sit for a minute before using the same sponge to blend it in.  For under my eyes I started with Collection Illuminating Touch Concealer*, again leaving it to sit before using the same sponge and then applied NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer* in Chantilly.  I use the elf under eye setting powder to set both concealers and the mac Forever Marilyn Beauty Powder to set the rest of my face.

I kept my eyes super simple and used just one palette, the Urban Decay Basics Palette*.  First I used the mac Painterly Paint Pot to prime my lids.  Then I swept Foxy all over the lid up to my brows.  I lightly put some Faint in my crease with my blender brush, go in with a light hand here, blend lots.  I used Venus as my highlight under my brows only.  Using a flat liner brush I pressed Crave tight along my upper lash line, not bringing it all the way in to my tearduct – I have watery eyes and I didn’t fancy having black smudges around my eyes if it got windy or rainy!  Not a good look for an interview.     I went with Jordana Best Volume Extreme Volumizing mascara*.  I used Faint from the Basics palette for my brows and then topped it with Benefit Gimme Brow* to add a bit more depth.

I contoured with NYX blush in taupe before applying NARS blush* in Orgasm to act as both blush and highlighter.  I swept the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder* in Ethereal Light all over my face.  For lips I went with a “your lips but better”, NARS Satin Lip Pencil* in Rikugien.  I set it all in place with Urban Decay De-Slick* makeup setting spray.  The result is below!
