Bit vague but as it's a job interview less is probably more, you want to look bright, approachable and friendly without having the interviewer being too drawn to how your appearance. (It's about you as a person first and foremost).
> I'd firstly make sure you get a foundation that suits your skin color, it couldn't be worse walking into an interview looking like you can't pick your ivorys from your tans lol. Don't go overboard, just a bit of foundation with some loose powder and maybe some concealer for any blemishes.
> I would have just a touch of blush to make you look fresh and not too pale looking, you want to look full of life and have some color in your cheeks. Just smile and apply it to the actual cheek not the cheekbones.
> Don't bother with liquid eyeliner, it's hard to apply it without overdoing it and I personally think for an interview, pencil eyeliner along top (not bottom) with neutral eyeshadows looks more professional. Choose colors that are in keeping with your skin tone and eye color, beiges, tans, creamy colors. Interviewers will undoubtably look you in the eyes so although you want to make them look bright and have them well done you don't want them to be checking out which eyeliners you're using at the same time.
> A little mascara, get a good one so it doesn't all clog up and make your lashes stick together. Don't do lower lashes, it can look messy.
> If you're going to wear anything on your lips I'd recommend a lipstick, perhaps a more skin color personally but anything will be fine so long as it's not some outrageous color, gloss can be too shiny and is a bit too young looking. You could always apply some chapstick or nivea lipbalm etc just to make your lips more soft looking if you don't want to wear lipstick. No lip liner if you're not confident with make up.
It really depends on the job you're interviewing for, unless you're going for a beautician or working in cosmetics you want to keep make up on the low. You want to look professional and smart and not like you're going for a beauty contest. Also if you're a bit of a make up virgin it's best to stick to the basics and not try anything too adventurous :) Good luck!0
