Making the effort to look great will also make you feel fantastic, and it will give you the confidence to walk into a room to meet your date, who may be your future.
First impressions do count, however you need to keep it real and be able to reproduce “your look” for any future dates. Hiring a professional to do your hair and makeup for your first date isn’t the best idea, if you want some help perhaps book a professional stylist to teach you how to do your hair, makeup, wardrobe or all the above. This way you can be authentic on the night and being true to yourself will help you find your true love.
Ladies choose your best feature for makeup and play to your strengths, if lips are your asset keep in mind red and dark lipsticks are high maintenance when it comes to eating and kissing. You can still give your lips definition and presence with more natural tones and glosses.
Guys, assuming a quick shower is all you need is a little naive, aftershave (not too much) and ironed clothes are also a necessity when you are looking to impress. The biggest oversight for some men is the lack of hair product, if you are not sure how to manage your hair, ask your barber or hairdresser when you next get a cut for some style advice. If you are a man working hard in the trades there is a good chance your hands need some attention, you can simply combine granulated sugar or salt with olive or coconut oil and use it as a hand scrub, this will remove any rough skin and add moisture back to your hands. Clip and clean your nails, there is nothing worse than you saying cheers over a lovely glass of vino and all your date notices are dirty finger nails.
Enjoy flirting and having fun meeting that special someone.
