Getting ready for a networking event can feel like preparing for a sports game! You polish your resume, make sure your outfit looks professional, and you review potential interview questions. But what about your makeup?
Some advisers might suggests wearing minimal makeup, while others recommend wearing your signature lipcolor, whether that’s red or a nude lipstick. Creative industries offer more flexibility when it comes to wearing bold lip colors and a casual attire.
Recently, I attended FindSpark’s Hustle Summit networking event in NYC. Hustle Summit is an event where companies from various industries such as: finance, marketing, and online publications interview and network with potential new hires and interns. Hustle Summit provides a great opportunity to network with people, who may eventually become your colleagues, friends, or mentors.
Before attending this event, I made the decision that I wasn’t going to purchase any makeup or clothes. After putting together a few outfit options, I decided to wear a black fit and flare dress from NY & Co. and black wedge heels. Since we’re experiencing a heat wave here in NY, I packed a pair of comfortable sandals to switch into once, I finished meeting with employers. As the temperature continued to rise throughout the city, I decided to forgo my plans of wearing cream foundation; instead I applied my favorite pressed powder foundation from Cover FX. Cover FX product line does not contains parabens, talc, or gluten. This richly pigmented foundation goes on smoothly, and provides a great deal of coverage. Next I coated my lashes with my favorite mascara L’oreal Lash Paradise. When it came to my lipcolor, I kept it simply with Pixi Beauty hydrating Shea Butter Lip Balm in Natural Rose.
