Anyway, whenever I was preparing for my interviews, I tried to be as organised as possible to reduce any anxiety and stress as much as possible, so this included having my make-up organised and ready to use the night before.
I knew in my head what way I wanted my make-up to be, a base that would cover any blemishes and dullness without being heavy, a soft subtle eye and a neutral lip.
For my base, I knew I would need to start with a good primer, so I reached for the Max Factor Facefinity All Day Primer to help smooth and even out my skin to prepare for the rest of my base.
Next I reached for the Vichy Dermablend Corrective Stick Foundation (Opal), but used it as a concealer for any blemishes and redness that was lingering around as this is seriously high coverage, yet not heavy. For under my eyes I used the trusty Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer (Ivory) to help brighten up my eye area and make me look more awake.
For foundation, I used a small amount of the L'Oreal Infallible Matte Foundation (Porcelain) as I didn't need a lot of coverage after using the Vichy concealer, but I still wanted to even out my skin tone a little bit.
To add a little colour to my ghostly complexion, I used my favourite blush, theBalm FratBoy Blush and The Body Shop Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder (01). To add a subtle glow to my skin, I used theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer Luminizer as a highlighter on the tops of my cheekbones to give a more radiant look.
To lock everything in place and make sure shine stays away, I used the Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder (Vanille) as it's not cakey or heavy looking on the skin.
For eyeshadow, I used the shades 'Stark' and 'Frisk' from the Urban Decay Naked Basics 2 Palette. I used 'Stark' all over the lid and then used 'Frisk' in the outer corners and blended it inwards. I also used theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer Luminizer again in the inner corners of my eyes and on my brow bone to make myself look more awake than I actually felt.
Another trick I used to look more awake was to use the Rimmel ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in Nude on my upper and lower lash lines as it covers any redness around the eyes, but without having to use a black or brown eyeliner.
Some may find it strange to use liquid liner for a more soft, subtle eye make-up look, but winged liner is my staple look and comfort blanket in the make-up world and I feel more confident with it on as it really opens up my eyes, so I used the Bourjois Liner Pinceau (Ultra Black) as it glides on to my eyes with such ease.
I finished off my eye make-up by curling my eyelashes and adding a coat of the Benefit They're Real! Mascara as is really defines and separates the lashes, whilst adding some serious length without being clumpy.
I'm so over the over-drawn eyebrow look, it just doesn't suit me at all. I simply use the Soap & Glory Archery Brow Tint & Pencil (Love Is Blonde) to fill in my brows and brush them through to keep them in place.
This leads me on to discuss MAC - Patisserie, which is my ultra 'my lips but better' shade as it's described as a sheer, creamy neutral pink and gives an ever so subtle hint of gloss to my lips as it's one of the Lustre formulas.
