Find details on the virtual makeover and how to enter giveaway towards the bottom of the post

We know that at some point or another you'll be attending a conference or a meeting where you'll meet potential business partners or clients.

And as chic chicas, making a good first impression is imperative. Take a look at some of my tips and find out how you can win personalized Mary Kay products!

How to Create a Professional Yet Relaxed Look for Conferences

Keep It Basic As much as you might love eye shadow or heavy liner that help accentuate your eyes, remember to keep it clean and basic. My personal makeup must-haves for conferences are: powder foundation, mascara, gentle eye liner, one or two brush strokes of blush and lipstick.

Add some personality Less is definitely more, but don't be afraid to show some personality. For example, at conferences I often wear my signature red or plum lips while keeping the rest of my makeup very basic.

Stay Stunning and Confident While your makeup makes a statement, remember that confidence is your best feature no matter  your personal style.

Mary Kay Virtual Makeover
