My office approved FOTD for Fearless task Hunting!

My fearless task hunting face of the day
Hey, everyone! I understand I haven’t discussed it often, however at this present time, I don’t have a full-time job. As such, I apply to a great deal of jobs, as well as I try to go on as many interviews as I can, when I’m lucky sufficient to get one.

It turns out I was, in fact, lucky sufficient this week! It was yesterday, as well as I spent a great deal of time last weekend planning what I would wear, exactly how I would handle the interview, as well as my preferred part: my makeup.


I wanted to show you men the neutral look I wore as well as the products I used to accomplish it.

From top left to right: Clinique stay Matte Oil free makeup ($32), Murad Invisiblur Perfecting shield SPF 30 ($65), Milani blush in luminoso ($8.49), E.L.F. Baked Highlighter in Moonlight Peals($4), European Wax Center’s Brow Powder Duo ($22), too faced natural Eyes palette ($36), NYX Matte surface setting Spray ($8), E.L.F. Eyeshadow primer ($2), Maybelline fit Me Concealer in Light($6.99) as well as Sephora full action Mascara ($12)
The interview was for an office coordinator setting at the same school I attended for my graduate studies. I’ve worked in a few offices, as well as those are the kinds of positions I’ve been looking into lately for full-time work.

When I interview, I like to wear things that make me feel comfortable, because, well…I’m normally a anxious wreck when it concerns interviews. I still haven’t mastered them. in some cases I shake worse than when I’m at the dentist’s office, as well as that’s a great deal of shaking.

So for this look I started with freshly cleansed as well as moisturized skin.

Then I applied a great layer of Murad Invisiblur primer (I evaluated it here). It gives me a great starting point for Clinique Oil free stay Matte Makeup.

Clinique Oil free stay Matte makeup in Linen

After dabbing Clinique stay Matte makeup in linen all over my face with a beautyblender, I end up with light-to-medium protection all over.

I still had a few visible spots that needed more coverage, as well as I likewise have a tension zit that’s threatening to pop out on the lower righthand corner of my nose. You can’t see it in this picture, however each time I smile or frown, it hurts!

So I hit the rest of my trouble spots with very blendable as well as simple to use Maybelline fit Me Concealer in Light. This includes my chin, the corners of my nose, as well as in specific spots around the corners of my mouth.

Once I was finished with my preliminary base, I moved onto blush as well as highlight. Nicole gave some love to Milani Luminoso blush in her Unsung Heroes post, as well as whatever she had to say about it convinced me that I needed it too.

It gives a perfect peachy pink flush that isn’t too overpowering. I likewise added a bit of a highlight using E.L.F. Baked Highlighter in Moonlight Pearls on the high points of my cheeks, my nose, as well as around my brows.

Next, as well as I understand that this can seem a bit backward, however in some cases I do things a bit backward when it concerns my makeup. After my face was done, I moved onto my eyes.

I recently got the too faced natural Eyes Palette
The $36 too faced natural Eyes palette was my very first “high end” palette purchase, as well as I love it so far!

I wear neutral eyes many of the time, as well as the shades in this palette are all really versatile as well as simple to wear from day to night. (Karen did a full review of the palette here.)

I went with a daytime look using Heaven/Cashmere Bunny/Sexpresso.
After applying E.L.F. Eyeshadow Primer, I blended heaven (a cream matte) all over my lid as well as into my brow bone. then I picked up Cashmere Bunny (a taupe matte) as well as blended that into my crease.

I discovered that my lines were a bit severe after this step, so I grabbed a blending brush (like this one from E.L.F.) as well as sorted that out real quick.

That’s a bit better!
Finally, I took Sexpresso (a deep brown matte) as well as packed it into my lash line as my liner. I blended it out a little, sort of like exactly how Jen does in this post.

My last steps were to add a coat of Sephora full action Mascara in Black, which I got as a sample, as well as fill in my brows. Sephora full action Mascara gives full, soft lashes without being irritating.

The brow powder is one I’ve had for a while that I got from European Wax center when a good friend of mine worked there. I prefer using powders in the summer since I’m more apt to sweat off a cream.

I likewise put a balm on my lips with the intention of prepping them for a lipstick, however I was so anxious as well as late by the time I got uptown (it takes a little over an hour to get there from where I online in Brooklyn) that I went into the interview with bare lips.

Overall, I think the interview went well, as well as I feel great about it. as well as even if I don’t get the job, it was great practice, as well as great makeup method as well!


I likewise snapped a photo of my makeup at the end of the day for comparison:

End of the day for comparison
This was after my 45-minute interview, two hours of commuting, as well as likewise having to offer with a very humid day in NYC. I did get a little mascara transfer, however that’s about it. I made a note to pick up some blotting sheets, though! My glasses were sliding down my nose all day.

I hope you liked this FOTD! Do you have any type of tried as well as true interviewing tips? What are some of your preferred looks as far as makeup as well as outfits opt for when you’re task hunting? let me understand in the comments!
