Interview FOTD and an explanation

Recently I've not really posted as much as I used to.  I explained a while back that I was finding it difficult to fit everything in - between work life, social life, family life, blog life, there wasn't a lot of time left.

Shortly after I wrote that post, things at work took a turn for the worst and the office I've come to regard as a second home is closing down.  The colleagues I've come to regard as a second family are all dispersing, and I've had to get over my emotional reaction and start looking for a new job.

The past couple of weeks have been spent travelling between interviews, in interviews, and waiting in coffee shops for interviews to begin.  It's paid off though - I now have a few offers to consider, all of which look like an interesting next step.

Anyway, hopefully the coming few weeks will see a more regular posting schedule.  The photo above is my trusty interview FOTD - subtle but still made up, and with a mid-pink lipstick instead of my usual red.  Red can wait for my first day.

Stila Stay All Day Foundation in Fair* (because it lasts ages with grace)
Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Dollface (because it also lasts ages)

Illamasqua Eyebrow Cake in Stark
Urban Decay Primer Potion
Rouge Bunny Rouge eyeshadow in Bohemian Waxwing

Clinique Quickliner Intense in Intense Charcoal*

  1. I still remember being bowled over the first day I saw you at work! (Le awesome makeup). Good luck Gemma!! :D

    1. Thanks Faye - I'll miss having a fellow lipstick lover in the office!

  2. Good luck with the future! You're looking really good - I like a sheer red for interviews, I keep bright fuchsia for the first day ;)

    1. Unfortunately fuschia clashes with my hair ;) Thanks!
