So he asked you out and you said yes but you are nervous because not only do you not know what to wear but you also want to make sure that you look perfect for that first date!!! After all, the first impression is the best impression…right??? Worry no more; Beauty School ScArlet is here to save the date…LOL..
The night before the date, exfoliate your skin with a good scrub to remove the dead skin cells. This will even out your skin tone and allow you to have a more flawless look, as the makeup will not sit on top of the skin. I suggest Boots No.7 Total Renewal Microdermabrasion Exfoliator. Don’t let the name scare you!!! It is very gentle and it contains the same Aluminum Oxide Crystals that are used in spa treatments. After you use this, you will have a brighter and more glowing complexion that he will not forget. Be sure to use an SPF in the morning, as any exfoliators will make the skin more sensitive to the sun.
Be sure to eat healthier with more fruits and veggies a few weeks before to prevent bloating. Also drink plenty of water to hydrate the skin and keep it clear of unnecessary breakouts. There is nothing like a big huge zit screaming hello to your date. If you should have one, I suggest you invest in Super Spot Remover by Origins to heal that zit quick, fast and in a hurry!!!
Whiten your teeth; you have a beautiful smile so make sure it shines. You can use the strips from the drug store or if you want to splurge I recommend using Go Smile. It is an amazing tooth whitening system that offers quick results. They currently have their Go All Out kit on sale for $49 marked down from $120. It includes an Am and PM toothpaste, lip treatment and 7 ampules which you use daily to whiten the teeth for more instant results.
Stop and get a mani the day before or do a DIY to save and splurge on something else. If you are going to attempt a DIY, I suggest using the Trend Tips from Sephora by O.P.I., they are easy to use and there is no drying time. “Your nails are like jewels, don’t use them as tools” – Essie. There’s nothing like a good manicure on a man or a woman.
Less is more on the first date…with makeup that is!!! Don’t overdue it with the makeup, go for a clean fresh look. You are not going to take pictures on the first date so a full face is not needed here. I suggest a natural shadow, hint of blush, a little mascara and a dab of gloss. Gloss with color is okay but not a bright in color with tons of pigment. My fave is Plum Blum by Big Girl Cosmetics with Cover Girl Queen Collection Jumbo Gloss Balm. Together, just like you and your date…they are the perfect match!!!
Last but not least, don’t over do it with the perfume. Find a clean fresh scent that works well with your body chemistry. To help the scent last longer, rub a little Vaseline on your pulse points before you spray your perfume and spraying it on your pulse points ensures that you are wearing the right amount.
Now that you are completely date ready from head to toe, take some time to relax, relate, release, calm your nerves so you can show that man what he has been missing all of his life…MUAH!!!
