Dating can be a mixed bag—fun, anxiety provoking, drama laden and intoxicating as we know. Here are some beauty tips for various scenarios to help you feel confident and beautiful, which will hopefully help you relax and enjoy the evening.
Impressive First Date
You are excited for your first date, so you want to look and dress to impress. You want to look like that beauty-next-door without overdoing yourself. Enhance your eyes with a dreamy bronzed smoky look. Finish off the look with a natural matte flush and soft pink-nude lips.
Going somewhere fun and colorful like amusement park? You can dress comfortably, but definitely play up your makeup colors to make you shine more vibrant and more vivacious than the rides themselves. Be bold and aggressive by pairing your juicy-raspberry stained lips with glittery electric blue eyes!
A Smoking Date
Whether you may be going clubbing with your girlfriend in attempt to hunt down your hot guy or you already got one in the mix, you would want to make your statement out on that dance floor. Stand out by wearing shimmery bright gold and nude eyeshadow instead of the traditional cat eye smoky eye look. Going nude or light pink on your lips may make your lip look washed out at the club, so top off the look with a daring red or fuchsia color.
A Romantic Twist Date
Purple is one of those eyeshadow colors that looks good on just about anyone. Not a professional at makeup? No worries! If you go with a gradient purple look, mixing and blending some bright and deeper purple shades, you will look romantically cute. You will look so adorable that you might just be his dessert!
High Class Date
Entice your date with some remix of Hollywood glam. Mesmerize him as you walk down to meet him with those romantic mixes of pink and gold on the eye and tender, sexy red lips. However, make sure to be ready to catch him when he falls head over heels for you!
Want to look like you have natural beauty when you go shopping at the mall or on a hike with your cute, hot date? A foundation can provide too heavy or full of a coverage on those occasions, so you may want to opt for a dewy finish with BB or CC cream. Use a BB cream if your skintone is more even, and a CC cream if you have huge blotches of red or discoloration that you want to fade out. You can choose to set the BB or CC cream with powder or not, depending on whether you want a dewy or more matte finish. Finish off with light natural eyeshadow colors that work best for your eye color and a rosy-tint lip color.
Last but very important, don’t forget breath mints.
