A first date is always exciting and can even give you a case of the butterflies. You want to appear as your best and impress, but you also don’t want to overdo your beauty look. Don’t try out new makeup or a hairstyle that will only make you feel uncomfortable. Go for chic and attractive and put on a fragrance that gives you confidence. Our makeup artists have fab beauty tips for that all-important first date.

1. Glowing Skin

It doesn’t matter if you wear foundation or none at all. Whatever you enjoy doing in your skincare routine is fine, but always start with a clean face.

If you’re wanting plumped, smooth and radiant skin, then apply a serum or cream with hyaluronic acid (HA). It is excellent at delivering a radiant glow on all skin types and helping your complexion maintain a moisture balance.

HA is an incredible skincare ingredient because of its unique ability to hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water. It allows your facial contours to look naturally full and your complexion to achieve a lovely radiance.

2. Kissable Lips

Your smile is everything, according to many people on the dating scene, and that also includes smooth lips with hydration.

You don’t want to meet your date with dry, chapped lips. That’s why the finest lip balms and treatments have been developed to gently penetrate and seal in moisture.

Bright white teeth will look amazing with your soft, dewy, kissable lips. Try a whitening toothpaste or dental strips that you apply to the teeth. The strips are dentist-approved and have been designed to whiten teeth by removing 10 years of tough, set-in stains.

3. Perfect Foundation

If you enjoy applying foundation as a base to your makeup, then don’t skip this step. Our makeup pros advise using a light hand to even out your skin tone, hide any blemishes, red spots, etc.

Then, dust on a finishing powder to set your foundation in place.

Some women prefer to use a tinted moisturizer instead of foundation to achieve a similar effect with a balanced skin tone.

Foundation alone without blush is not advised
