    Whether you’re fresh outta college or 10 years into your career, job interviews can be seriously scary. But, like all things in life, they're all about preparation when it comes to your résumé, references, and yes — even your makeup.

    As much as we support an individualistic approach to beauty, what works during your off-hours may not cut it at your 9-to-5. And, since an interview serves as your first face-to-face interaction with a would-be employer, it’s important to find the balance right off the bat.
