Summer eyes for an Interview & GIVEAWAYS

Hello beautycallers. Hope everyone is having a nice week.

Does anyone ever wonder what eyeshadow colors to use for going on an interview? If you have then please read on. I had an interview the other day. Don't even think about doing a dark smokey eye or using funky colored eye shadows (I have a feeling you guys know this but just in case). You want your makeup to be conservative looking. How conservative depends on a few factors, those being the industry, financial vs. creative, where the actual interview is taking place, be it at an office or at a Starbucks, or the season. From what I have seen, when women go on an interview, or go to work, they mostly wear neutral colors, brow, grays, taupes, etc. While this is always your safest bet, it doesn't mean you can't add a little color. I went for my Tarte lock & roll 12 hour eyeshadow in rose gold. This color is not a typical neutral, but it's still safe and very pretty, if I say so myself. In the spring and summer I prefer lighter eye shadow colors for during the day.

thanks for the shout out!
great colors on you. i hope that helped in the interview process. such a good idea to give makeup advice for what to wear to interviews.
i was reading an article yesterday in redbook on how they did jen aniston's eyes for "horrible bosses." i could never pull off that look. i'd end up looking like magenta from rocky horror again!

thanks girl! I want to see this movie. I'm gonna check this article out. From pics I've seen it's pretty. It's probably a dark smokey eye. When we meet, hopefully sooner than later, I can teach you how to pull that look off and look pretty, not scary lol
