OK, in traditional Karen style, I did make-up and hair for a job interview early yesterday morning solely to comprehend on the final minute that it wasn’t going to be on video however over the telephone, LOL! Oh nicely.
A minimum of it gave me an excuse to strive a brand new eyeliner, GXVE Line It Up Gel Pencil in Sapphire Skies, a beautiful dark navy blue matte shade. We’ll get to that in a second.
Thanks for sending your interview well-wishes. I feel I did okay! If I make it by this spherical — fairly certain I did — then I’ve one other three rounds to go.
I don’t know for those who’ve looked for a job recently, however as of late it’s a looooong course of. Nicely, at the very least it’s within the inventive subject that I’m in proper now (writing).
You gotta make it by a web based resume submission, which is shockingly tough to do due to the sheer quantity of people that apply. Then, an HR particular person does a screener interview, and for those who get by that, then you definitely do two or three extra interviews with the inventive group members. Generally it’s a person interview and typically it’s a gaggle. Then, there’s a writing take a look at. Should you move the writing take a look at, then there’s often yet one more interview with a VP or somebody in a C-suite place.
It’s rather a lot!
I used to be considering as I used to be driving Connor to the dentist for a filling (child’s first cavity) that it seems like I’m courting once more, ha ha ha! On all these calls, you’ve gotta look your greatest and current the perfect model of your self, after which hope that 1) the particular person on the opposite finish likes you sufficient to maneuver you ahead and a couple of) that you just don’t by chance offend somebody alongside the best way. All of the whereas you haven’t any actual thought how the opposite individuals really really feel about you.
Anyway, I do know one thing good is coming. Simply gotta be affected person.
Now for the enjoyable stuff… EYELINER. Particularly, the blue gel pencil liner from Gwen Stefani’s make-up line, GXVE. She has a bunch of colours and this one caught my consideration due to the creaminess of the pencil and the depth of the pigment. It’s presupposed to be waterproof, too.
In these pics, I had the make-up on for a superb six hours, and the liner didn’t budge from my lash or water line! What I like essentially the most about it, although, is the colour. It has depth and depth, nevertheless it isn’t harsh. It’s excellent if you need definition however choose a softer various to true black eyeliner.
At full value, every pencil is often $20 for 0.04 ounces, however on the GXVE Magnificence web site proper now, everything’s 50% off, so, dagnabbit, it seems like I would like to purchase one other shade or two. I feel the purple and the taupe look actually stunning.
Yet one more day till Thanksgiving. We’re going to maintain it mellow this 12 months — simply me, El Hub, Connor Claire and Rosie-Pose. We’re going to have crab with numerous butter and salt as an alternative of turkey, french bread, some sides that we’ll choose up from a neighborhood gourmand deli and a pie or two. Connor and I are going to make an apple pie right now (here’s the recipe); hopefully it gained’t be hideous so I can take an honest image of it.
I hope your T-day prep goes easily and that you just’re feeling comfortable and wholesome. Some nasty colds are going round these components, so handle your self, OK?
