Imagine you’re sitting at an important job interview. You’re suitably dressed and have taken the time to do your hair and apply some makeup. You’re smiling, answering questions, and attempting to appear competent, and, obviously, hireable.

Though there is the old adage that one shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, makeup is one way in which they may be judging you.
