How to Get Ready for Air Hostess/Flight Attendant Interview in Indian Airlines: Dress Code, Hairstyle, Eye Makeup, Lips
By Contributor: Shruti
How many of you pretty ladies want to work in the aviation industry? Well, I do. It’s just so cool to fly and see new places that too for free. As we all know airlines (especially the ones in India like Indigo, Spicejet, Jet Airways, Go Air, etc) want doll like faces and perfect bodies so I am showing you a step by step tutorial on how the eye and lip makeup should be done and what type of outfit should be worn. They are very strict about the dress code. Along with how to that neat and clean hairstyle. I will also show a clean and easy nail art too.
Trust me, everything from hair to makeup, outfit to nails needs to be perfect because they reject people in the first round itself if the grooming is not right and I have seen people getting rejected because their nails were not painted the right shade or their shirts had minor creases (which happens while travelling). I know duh, right?
Eye Makeup Tutorial for Air Hostess Interview:
Do your base. Use primer, concealer and foundation which provides proper coverage. I use ponds bb cream beneath my foundation for my bad skin days to get full coverage.
For the eyes:
Step 1. Apply a nude or light brown eye shadow all over your eyelids. Do not layer it, just apply a little which will enhance your eyes.
Step 2. Apply your favorite kohl on your waterline. I’ve used Maybelline colossal kajal.
Step 3. Tightline your eyes using the same kohl pencil.
Step 4. Apply a black or darkened brown eyeliner. I’ve again used Maybelline colossal kajal. Make sure the eyeliner is waterproof and smudge proof because you might end up siting at the interview office for the whole day because they do all the rounds together sometimes.
Step 5. Mascara time! I just love mascaras. Again use a waterproof one which does not clump and holds the curl for hours. I’ve used Maybelline colossal mascara. Fill in your eyebrows. And tada your eyes are ready.
Lipstick and Blush for Air Hostess Interview:
My color suggestions would be nude, blotted red, coral and warm pink lipsticks which are not too bright and stays longer. I’ve used and blotted bobbi brown artstick in harlow red. I’ve again used bobbi brown artstick I harlow red on my cheeks. Just put a few dots and blend quickly. And your makeup is done!
Hair Style for Air Hostess Interview:
Always tie your hair in a ponytail or a bun. Use hairspray or hair mousse to tame the fly aways. Make a small pouf with a ponytail or bun.
And that’s the whole flight attendant makeup look without looking scary or SA like
Oh oh I forgot about the nails. Match your nails with your lips or you can do a subtle nail art too like I did. Keep them simple as much as you can.
Dress Code for Air Hostess or Cabin Crew Interview:
I suggest you to wear a good quality Georgette formal shirt as it won’t crease with a black or grey formal skirt and black stockings. Shoes and handbag needs to be neutral. Wear nude or black pumps or wedges. Do not wear very high heels; 2-3 inch heel is more than enough. And you are ready to impress the interviewers with your personality.
Shirt: max / Skirt: forever 21 / Shoes: stelatoes / Handbag: stelatoes / Stockings: don’t remember (You can get them easily in any lingerie store)
That’s how you look presentable and interview ready in the hotel management or aviation industry. Cabin crew or flight attendants are shortlisted in the first round on the basis of their overall presentation. I am working in a very reputed airlines now. The look changes slightly when you start working officially. Let me know if you have any interview questions or any other queries I can help you with.
Team VNA wishes you all a very happy new year! May this year brings happiness in your life.
