A First Date Look

10 Dec 2010 - Views - Comment - Share →

I've had lots of requests from people asking me to film a first date make-up tutorial as getting your look right for such an occasion can be tricky. I think that one of the most important things to remember is that your personality should shine through no matter what, so if you usually wear a smoky eye then don't feel like you need to do something different and replace this with a statement lip - if you don't feel comfortable your date will be able to tell!

First date make-up should also reflect the date itself - think about what you are going to be doing, are you going for a walk in the park, a romantic dinner, or a party or club? When you take all of this into account there's no one look for all first dates but one thing I've learnt from experience is that the majority of guys don't like women to look like they're wearing tons of make-up - that means heavy bases and garishly bright lips are out (unless that's your signature look of course!!).

The look I decided to do for this film follows this - I've tried to give lots of generic tips of how you can make yourself look and feel your best, with flawless, glowing skin, full lashes (I've used false ones in the film as my lashes aren't naturally full but if you're not used to wearing or applying them then it might be best not to - again, a first date isn't a time to feel uncomfortable) and natural, dewy lips.

In the film I talk about my Grandmother's make-up related first date disaster story - I'd love to hear any that you might have!
