Hi there, my darlings! Happy Fri...YAY! I had an interview scheduled for today. How it went is another story but it got me thinking last night. As someone who gravitates toward bold colors and shimmery shades, what beauty products do I currently have in my arsenal that could help me look put together for an interview? Not surprisingly...not much! But I did recall playing with a couple of products from Model's Own that could do the trick. Take a peek and let me know what you think!


Start two-timing with this healing concealer. With tea tree oil for tackling blemishes, this multitasking stick works hard and plays harder.
Available in 5 shades: Almond, Cool Rose, Deep Beige, Shell and Vanilla

I struggle with finding a concealer match, much like I struggle with finding the right shade of foundation--often, I realize that it's the undertones that just don't work. But, the good news is that I have a very close, if not complete, match with the concealer shade in Almond (shown below to the top left). Now, I would have thought that Shell (shown below to the bottom right) with it's warmer, redder undertones would have been a better fit but it turns out Almond works better for my skin tone. Go figure.

More good news: I love the formula! It's a full-coverage concealer that's not unbearably heavy and blends quite easily. My sensitive, acne-prone skin is also very grateful for the addition of tea tree oil, which fights acne and blemishes. All in all, I really like this product and if the pre-interview jitters kept you up at night, the circles under your eyes shouldn't undermine your confidence!

Erase the night before with this all-in-one Models Own eye and face palette, A.M. Kit Daytime. Use to highlight eyes and cheeks for a look that stands out from the crowd.

When searching through my palettes, it was pretty evident that I didn't have very many "work-appropriate" or "professional" makeup options. Yes, a neutral palette here and a nude palette there but few and far between. So, this palette is a welcome addition for those specific purposes. Otherwise, it's safe to say, I probably wouldn't reach for this one very often. That being said, for the price point, it's a pretty solid palette, especially is your a light to medium skin tone.

Formula-wise, no major complaints. These are pretty light shades and aren't very pigmented but I didn't have trouble with too much fall-out either. Overall, a solid palette for daytime or professional wear.

  1. I was using the Daytime palette for quite a while until I needed to move on. Sometimes a light eye is the best. I think the blush is great for fair skin.

  2. I love your swatches! Sorry if the interview didn't go well - on to the next!

  3. That palette is just lovely! I'll look for it next time I'm at Ulta. Good to know about these concealers. I still get breakouts and having the tea tree oil makes these a winner.

  4. GREAT SWATCHES! Such a lovely palette.

  5. That palette looks great for everyday, I need to check out Ulta soon.
