    makeup+tips+for+a+job+interview_3356_800214325_0_0_7072553_300Job interviews may be hard to come by so women who are granted the chance to interview will likely be aiming to make the perfect first impression. Makeup artist Zethina recently shared some makeup interview tips with, which can help women look sophisticated and qualified for the job.

    Because eye contact is important during the interview, ladies should choose makeup that will accentuate their eyes and avoid colors that can shift attention away from their peepers. When using mascara, Zethina advises to keep it simple.

    "It's best to not over apply mascara, you need just enough to enhance your lashes but not so much that you look like you need a scrub down," she said.

    Though many women may be tempted to match the colors of their eyeshadow or lipstick to their chosen outfit for the meeting, Zethina says that colors should be selected based on their ability to flatter your eye, skin and hair color.

    Avoid glitter, and don't let interviewers see you touch up your makeup - they may perceive you to be superficial, Zethina advises. Women should also do a last-minute once-over in a mirror, to make sure that makeup looks impeccable and that there isn't any lipstick on their teeth!

  • How to store your makeup for best results

    Has your makeup turned clumpy or started to irritate your skin? According to the Inquirer Lifestyle Beta, makeup products have an expatriation date and must be stored properly.

    Though most women tend to keep their makeup in the bathroom, this may be a bad idea because of the humidity your products will be exposed to. Bathroom moisture can change the composition of your makeup and turn it soft and pasty.

    The news source advises using a cosmetic box to prolong your products' life and protect their quality, and to keep the box away from direct sunlight, which can lead to makeup degeneration.

    You should also be aware of your makeup's shelf life. Though it can be difficult to part with your favorite products, once it's past its expiration date its time to say goodbye.

    The first rule of keeping your collection fresh is to get rid of any product you haven't used in six months.

    Use your nose to determine when it's time to toss lipstick and mascara. The news outlet reports that expired lipstick boasts an unpleasant pasty stench and mascara will begin to smell like acetone.

    In a dry environment, eyeshadow can last three years though it is important to keep it properly closed to prevent the accumulation of bacteria and dust. Eye and lip liner will also last three years if sharpened regularly.

  • Tricks for creating a perfect pout

    Impeccably applied lipstick can make or break a look, but painting a pout perfectly can be tricky. Luckily, InStyle magazine came up with a few tips on how to get the ideal look without a lot of effort.

    With a plethora of colors to choose from, finding the perfect pink for your lips may seem overwhelming. However, selecting a color can actually be quite simple as long as you use your gums as a guide.

    "Just smile," the news source suggests. "Your perfect shade is about the same color as your gums - no lighter."

    To ensure that your lipstick lasts all day, fill your entire lip with a neutral pencil and then apply lip color. Blot excess color using a lint-free paper, reapply the product, and then blot again to create a durable lip stain.

    Though women often want their lipstick to look the same on their lips as it does in the tube, the natural color of their pout can alter the lipstick's hue. To avoid this, the news provider recommends that ladies prime their lips with a foundation, which will give them a blank canvas.

    Armed with the perfect pout, women who want to subtly emphasize and define their eyes to fade can try an acrylic-based mascara that will lengthen their lashes and intensify eyes.

  • Get right with red lipstick

    get+right+with+red+lipstick_3356_800291795_0_0_7067024_300Red lips can make any woman look like a siren, but the wrong kind of red can just as easily turn you into an emergency 911 case.

    Different shades of reds suit different skin tones, so pay attention to what flatters you as you select your lip color.

    According to, fair-skinned ladies should opt for lighter, coral reds that won't look harsh on their faces. Those with medium complexions can choose from a range of colors, including true red and pinkish reds with cranberry tones. Women with dark skin can go for the deepest shades of plum, brick and burgundy, since bright colors may be overpowering.

    Finally, the news source suggests that you keep it light with the lip gloss, since the bold color will do enough to make your mouth stand out.

    A bright mouth should almost always be paired with minimal eye makeup as well, but forgoing the mascara can be a major error. Pair your sensuous mouth with a couple coats of blinc Mascara. Its long-lasting water-resistant formula will give you optimum hold all day, so you won't need to reapply anything else besides your lipstick.

  • Unleash your inner child with candy-pink lips

    There are better ways to achieve a candy-colored pout than sucking on more lollipops than your body can readily handle.

    For a delectably youthful look, opt for hot pink or fire-engine red lipstick like our girl Natalie Portman. The ballet queen showed up to the IFP's 20th Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards with a playful, sideways bun and the hottest shade of bright pink lipstick she could find. She paired her pout with bubblegum pink cheeks and a barely-there soft gray shadow with thick black lashes.

    Who knew that subtly matching lips and cheeks could look so appealing? Follow Portman's lead and complement your lips with an equally vibrant shade of blush, though you should still go easy on the application.

    With the rest of your face making such a statement, eyes should be kept fairly neutral. Finish with a few coats of blinc Mascara for long-lasting fun.
