First date hair & make-up is always going to be tricky; do you go with a girl next door vibe and play it safe, or vamp it up with a statement lip? Well, our suggestion is to combine a little bit of both – you want to let your inner beauty shine through, but a pop of colour and eyelash fluttering never hurt anyone!
For the base, try using a light/medium coverage product that will cover up any spots or blemishes whilst helping to you give a fresh, dewy appearance. We love the Decleor BB 24hr Moisture Activator, which comes in Light, Medium and Dark, as it works to even out your complexion as well as hydrating your skin and keeping it looking fresh.
A rosy glow is perfect for a first date, and the Daniel Sandler Watercolour Creme-Rouge Blusher in Soft Pink works whatever your colouring. Dabbed on for a subtle flush or built-up for a more intense finish, this gorgeous blusher can be applied with either your fingers or a stippling brush.
What good are your eyelashes if you can’t flutter them? Designed to fully coat the lashes and give a super dark finish, the Bourjois Volume Glamour Ultra Black Mascara contains black mineral pigments, silicone and natural wax for extra volume and truly show-stopping lashes.
A swipe of subtle colour is great for making lips look kissable, and the NARS Sheer Lipsticks have a smooth and soft finish whilst also giving the illusion of fuller looking lips. We love the shade ‘Dolce Vita’; the classic MLBB shade (that’s ‘my lips but better’, obv) that will bring the whole make-up look together and make you look irresistible!
Now for the hair. We’re not sure if it’s because summer is finally upon us and we’ve been inspired by all the tousled beauties spotted at Glasto, but we’re loving the effortless, beachy wave look. To achieve it, use the BaByliss Pro Porcelain Conical Wand and curl random sections of hair to achieve a messy “I woke up like this” look. Finish it off with a spritz of the Kérastase Styling Spray à Porter and you’re good to go!
