10 Job Interview Beauty Tips

Landing a job these days is more competitive than ever – so don't let questionable beauty choices lower your chances of acing your interview! As a general rule, it's a great idea to dial down your everyday look just a bit. Try classic, sophisticated makeup and hairstyles instead of overtly sexy, aggressively trendy or bordering-on-gauche looks. (Tacky chic nails are cute for girls' night out — not so much when trying to charm a Deutsche Bank exec.). Here, our top ten tips for looking your professional best on the interview.

    Common Scents

As a rule, this is not the time to wear your most alluring come hither fragrance. Overtly sexy scents can send the wrong message (as in "available" as opposed to "professional"). Try lightweight, summery scents like the new ones from Kiehl's Aromatic Blends ($75). Blended with ingredients from around the globe, the sheer fragrances are gorgeous without being overpowering. Choose from Orange & Lychee, Vanilla & Cedarwood, Fig Leaf & Sage, Nashi Blossom and Pink Grapefruit.
