Guest Post by Brigitte Evans of High Style Life – Getting ready for a big date!
In the last few days, you have done all the necessary prep activities, from visiting a beautician to intensifying your gym routine. Not to mention getting that perfect LBD with lace embellishments. Now it is time to get ready and add some final touches so as to look great and feel confident on your date night.
So let’s start.
Fill up the bathtub, add some lavender oil and just relax. You can opt for a gentle scrub and top off the experience with a nice glass of red wine and some scented candles. Now that you have taken the time to just relax and enjoy a soothing bath the next step is applying lotion and other products so as to feel fresh and to make your skin feel smooth. Opt for neutral scented lotions and cream as to avoid mixing too many fragrances since you will be also putting on a stronger perfume for the date night.
The perfect hair
Gentle flowy locks, or smooth straight hair, whichever style you choose the key is to go for that romantic feel. And if you are not feeling great about your volume you can always get some clip in hair extensions and improve the overall look of your hair. They will blend in perfectly and he won’t even notice them, all he will see is your beautiful rich hair gently touching your face over a candlelit dinner. A great hairstyle boosts our confidence and that is exactly what we need in order to have a successful, carefree date night.
Those eyes, those lips
Makeup is essential for feeling great on a date night. But be careful, going overboard when it comes to amounts is never a good option. Instead, choose tempered tones that accentuate your natural beauty. When it comes to eyes, a smokey eye is the most romantic option while a red lip is the detail that will elevate your entire look. In addition, make sure you choose the right shade of eyeshadow to compliment your eye colour, the smoky eye effect looks great even with deep green or dark maroon tones. In this case try to restrain yourself from putting on lip gloss, as it can get quite sticky and ruin a romantic kiss.
The little details
As they say, the devil is in the details, so when we said from head to toe it is exactly right. Your manicure needs to be romantic and subtle. Overstated nails are not something you want to have on a date night. So stay away from neon colours and sparkles. And the same goes for your toes, especially if you opt for open toe pumps, light neutral colours are ideal for this occasion. Your dress and make up will do the wowing, not every part of your body needs to be in the spotlight. Don’t forget a subtle necklace to accentuate the bust line and pair of soft earrings to tie the whole look together. You will be stunning.
Finally – the outfit
There is no question about it, a little black dress is everyone’s favourite date night choice. It can be paired up with a stunning pair of stilettos and a light silk scarf. In case you feel quite bold you can opt for a little red dress that is sure to be an ultimate show stopper. The main thing is to feel confident in any outfit you choose so that you can oose positive energy and strength. Don’t forget, opt for knee length, you don’t want to spend the night pulling on your dress. It is always a great option to layer up slightly, in case there is a romantic walk at the end of the night. You wouldn’t want something like a lower temperature to spoil the romance.
There you have it, you are now ready for that perfect date night. The one thing that is bound to make it memorable is your self-esteem and positive attitude. If we feel good about ourselves we are able to create a great atmosphere, spark vivid conversation ad simply enchant the person we are with. And all this prep is just for that so that we can feel great about ourselves on that special night!
