How to apply your makeup for an online job interview

Hey my loves,

In today’s blog post I am going to talk a little about how to apply your makeup for an online job interview. In this pandemic everything is happening a little different and that includes the job world a lot. 

A video chat call can easily make you look washed out and pale because of the quality of your webcam. I will give you some tips on how to avoid look pale and instead look glowing, awake and ready to tackle anything.

STEP-BY-STEP TO THE PERFECT MAKEUP LOOK

Step One – Skincare

Skincare is a must for a good makeup look. Stick to products your skin knows and do not try anything new in the week leading up to the interview. Make sure your skin is moisturized and peeled for a glowing finished look.

Step Two – Primer

A good primer helps your skin to protect in from the products you are going to put on your face, but it also helps with the makeup be a lot long-lasting. If you are unsure what kind of primer to use ask your local cosmetic studio to help you out. But, generally speaking if your skin is more on the dry side you should use a moisturizing primer, if your skin is more on the oily side you should use a primer that is mattifying and if your have combination skin use a prima that is water based. 

Step Three – Base

Use a product you already know whether it being a foundation, BB Cream or CC Cream. Make sure to blend down the product on your neck. I would suggest using a product that evens out the skin down but doesn’t look and feel to heavy on your skin. I personally love using the IT Cosmetics CC Creme. 

If you have skin blemishes or acne you can use concealer in your skin tone to conceal them, but I would suggest if the blemish is just raised and not red to not put any concealer on it, because it does draw attention to it rather than away.

Before you apply any other products unless they are cream based, you should set your base with a translucent powder. Focus the product on your t-zone that is where we tend to get the oiliest throughout the day.

Step Four – Blush, Contour and Highlight

To get back some color and dimension back to your face we need to add color, shade and light. To shape your face you need to contour, you can use the three method which ist basically follow the line of a three on the outer part of your face with a contour powder. To get a little warmth and a nice summer glow you can also a a bronzer to the hollows of your cheek.

Use a blush that is not like a hot pink use something that is a little bit more natural. If you do want to use highlighter stay away from glittery products, instead of a shimmery product you could also use a powder that is two to three shades lighter than your skin color.

Step Five – Eyebrows and Eyes

The eyebrows are refereed to as the frame of the face so we cannot forget about them. If you are blessed with full eyebrows use an eyebrow mascara to shape them. If you have sparse eyebrow hair or want to change the form a bit you can use eyebrow powder or an eyebrow pencil, but I would recommend setting this with a clear brow mascara.

When you use eyeshadow stick to natural colors – like brown, rose or golden tones. Make sure that your eyes are lifted and appear to be more awake. For that you need to apply a lighter shadow to the eyelid, a darker shadow in the crease and then blend it. If you want to open up the eyes even more you can always add a shimmery highlight to the inner corner of the eye.

Last but not least, apply a waterproof mascara to your lashes. I always stick to the upper lashes that way they don’t adhere to my lower lashes as much, but do what you prefer.

Step Six – Lipstick and Setting Spray

If you choose to use lipstick make sure that it is not a bold color unless that is your statement color you wear on a daily basis. I would recommend using a lipliner before unless the lipstick is a long-lasting one.

Lastly, you should use Setting Spray to set your makeup in place and to revive it a bit with some freshness. Setting spray makes sure that your makeup lasts all day and doesn’t smudge.

All in all, stick to neutral and warm colors to give your face a natural glow and healthy look. If you want to make sure your eyes pop don’t use a bold color on the lips and vice versa. But most important – YOU DO YOU, whatever feels the most like yourself is completely fine.

If you are unsure if what you created is good enough check-in with your friends or family via a video chat. That way you can check if it looks good or if you need to change it up a little.

I hope you guys enjoyed this little entry.

I wish you a wonderful day!

Quick and Effortless Summer Makeup

Hey my loves,

today I am sharing with you my go-to make up for those super hot summer days. All you need is about five to seven products.

When it is super hot outside I like to stick to a super simple and easy makeup. I make sure to even out my skin tone. I use a concealer for that.

But before concealer I use primer.

I’ve been using the Maybelline – Superstay Primer. It makes my makeup last all day and even though I will only be using concealer I like to have a base for it.

I basically spot conceal and get rid of my dark circles. Currently I have been using the Maybelline – Instant Age Rewind Concealer. I use my finger to apply the concealer onto the spots and my under-eye.

To set my under-eye concealer I use a brightening powder.

Currently I have been trying out the Maybelline – Baking + Brightening Loose Powder. I only use it under my eyes and on my t-zone. On most days I don’t have to set the rest of the concealer, I only sweat in my t-zone and have creasing under my eyes.

I either apply blush or bronzer.

On hot days I don’t like to have too many powders on my face and because I haven’t found great drugstore liquid blushes or bronzer I usually stick to one of the powder versions. I either use my Too Faced – Sweethearts Blush in Something About Berry or a mix of the three bronzer shades in my Maybelline – Bronzer Palette.

Highlight is a must.

In summer I can’t live without highlighter. I’m currently using the MAC – Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft & Gentle. I apply on the tops of my cheek bones, the tip of my nose, the inner corner of my eye, my brow bone and on my cupids bow.

Waterproof Mascara is a life saver.

I always use waterproof mascara, but I especially wear it in summer. Sweat will tear off any other mascara and I will look like a panda. I’m using the Maybelline – Perfect Mascara.

Set and set again.

Last but not least, setting my makeup is one of the biggest MUST’s. I have to set my makeup or I will end up with nothing on my face in under an hour. I use the Maybelline – Super Stay Setting Spray. It works wonders for me.

Light dab of color for the lips.

Now lastly, I apply lipstick. I usually just dab whatever color I want for the day on my lips and that’s it. Currently I have been using the Gerard Cosmetics – Lipstick in Berry Smoothie or NYX – Soft Matte Lip Cream in San Paulo.

Spring to Summer Makeup Look

Hey my loves,

in today’s entry I am going to talk about the makeup look I’ve been wearing for the transition to summer. Where I’m leaving it’s currently a heat wave so we’ve been having temperatures up in the 25 C.

Processed with VSCO with dog2 preset

As per usual I like to keep it minimal for the everyday basis, especially because I’m usually out the entire day at Uni. What’s also important is a very long-lasting makeup and a sweat proof one, because – duh – it’s summer, so it’s usually hot. Haha xD

Here’s the makeup I used to create my look:

As you can see I’m currently loving a lot of Maybelline products and I think that’s amazing. I personally think they have really upped their game with their new products and I think that for their price they are amazing, long-lasting products.

For my eyes, I used a combination of the three bronzer shades in the Master Bronze Palette in the crease and under-eye. And a little bit of the gold from the palette on my lid.

My lip color varies on my mood and when I took that picture I felt bold so I went with a bright fuchsia color. I love the mattes from NYX, though I wish they were a little bit longer lasting.

What are your go-to makeup products for summer? Tell me in the comments, I would love to know.

I wish you all a wonderful day!

If you want to know how achieved this look then check my video out.

I Tried Following a Jaclyn Hill Makeup Tutorial

Hey my loves,

in today’s video I tried to recreate Jaclyn Hill makeup tutorial. I was so focused on following her tutorial that I literally forget to speak, so I was able to cut it down quite a lot.

Facetune_15-03-2018-21-48-15.JPG

Sadly, I do not own any of the products she used in her video, but I tried my best with dupes. I literally have no idea what I used. But I think I used an old Zoeva palette, as well as my NYX Lid Lingerie Shadow Palette. Other than that I do not remember what I used and I forgot to write it down. Sorry!

Also, I’ve already had my foundation done, because I filmed my “Mixing All My Foundations Together” video previous to that one.

The tutorial I followed was:

I just love Jaclyn so much and I loved that look. She also said something in this video that really spoke to me, and that was:

And if you don’t have a really defined crease that’s okay, you can just carve it out and you can create your own crease with the shadow. That’s what the beauty of makeup is, honestly. You can create your own crease, create a different nose, a different face shape, create whatever the hell you want with makeup. You can create a different life if you really need to.

I hope you enjoyed today’s video and if you did make sure to give it a big thumbs up. And it would mean the world to me if you could subscribe to my channel.
