How To Wear Your Make-Up On A First Date

First dates are nerve racking. You want everything to be absolutely perfect. We’ve all been there. It starts out by going shopping for that jaw dropping outfit. We contemplate whether we wear a simple dress or stylish jeans. Once we have that figured out, we spend countless hours on pinterest  deciding what hair and make-up look will go best with that outfit.

I have SO many women ask me…. What do I wear for make-up?? I want to look sexy and flirty… but not over done.

Answer the following questions honestly.

1. Whats my make-up style on a daily basis?

2. What is my favorite facial feature?

3. Where is the date?

4. What time of day?

5. Is my outfit simple or does it have some beautiful embellishments?

6. What colors am I wearing?

Now here is a quick break down for each of your answers.

1. {Whats my make-up style on a daily basis?} – If you are a no make-up kind of girl,  you definitely aren’t going to want to do anything crazy (like liquid eyeliner). Find a No Make-Up – Make-Up tutorial. It will help to give you a more flawless look. If you generally wear a bit of make-up, be sure not to  go over the top! Guys aren’t into girls who are totally fake.

2. {What is my favorite facial feature?} – That’s the one you need to focus on. Really emphasize what you love. If you feel like your eyes should pop, that look for a good eye shadow tutorial. If you love your lips….. then try a little brighter shade. You will feel more confident too.

3. {Where is the date?} – You want to find a make-up look that is appropriate for where you are going to meet. Obviously if you are meeting for afternoon coffee, you don’t want to wear Friday Night Out dramatic make-up. If you were going to a pizza place, you wouldn’t want to look like you were dinning at a 5 star resturant. Be sure to think about where else you could go after the date. If he invited you to go for a stroll in the park…. when it’s 90 degrees out… you don’t want to be sweating off your make-up. That isn’t pretty 😉

4. {What time of day?} – This is something else you want to take into consideration. I always tell women… before 5:00 you want to wear some light make-up. Stick with neutral tones. No crazy or bright colors. After 5:00 you can go a little more dramatic. A brighter lip or darker eye shadow is perfect!

5. {Is my outfit simple or does it have some beautiful embellishments?} – With a very simple outfit, you will want to have a little more make-up. When there is no distraction with the clothing, he can really focus on how beautiful your face is.  With an outfit that has some embellishments, you definitely want a look that is fairly simple. You want him to be able to focus on you… and not be so distracted by your outfit and make-up. You want to find balance.

6. {What colors am I wearing?} This one is pretty easy. When you wear bright colors… you want a more neutral make-up look. When you wear a softer outfit.. you want to add more vibrant colors to your make-up.

Be confident… And be yourself!
