Tips For Ladies
Ladies, when it comes to makeup, just put together a natural look.
Don’t go over the top with a red lipstick or smoky eyes. Stick to your skin tone as much as possible and choose a lipstick that slightly brightens up your lips. Making your lips pop out too much isn’t the kind of distraction you want to have. As for your hair, you can settle for your naturally straight or curly hair but controlling the frizz is a definite must.
If you’re not used to wearing a perfume, now is the time to put some.
Place it on your skin and not your clothes, particularly in areas with a pulse and other exposed parts of your body. Don’t spray it all over though! Just lightly dab the cologne on strategic places.
Choosing what to wear can be challenging.
Basically, you want to dress appropriately and comfortably for the occasion. If you were asked for a casual date like going to the movies, watching a game, or bowling, you wouldn’t want to wear heels would you? The discomfort alone will make you more jittery during the date. Besides, you would look silly if you didn’t dress appropriately.
- Natural hair & makeup is best
- Go with a light dab of perfume
- Wear comfy shoes
- Don't show off too much skin
If you intend to wear a dress or a top-and-skirt combo, make sure that it’s length is right above the knee.
Tips for men
Men, do try to impress your date. Start by donning a clean-shaven face and tidying up your hair with some mousse.
You can keep some stubble on but if you have a beard, you should get rid of it before entering the dating scene. Clip your fingernails and put on some perfume. Just don’t put on too much because you don’t want to overwhelm her with your scent! Women will notice these tiny little details and will appreciate the fact that you’re trying to look your best.
Guys, never wear a suit even if you’re taking her somewhere upscale.
A suit makes you look uptight and overdressed. The only exception is when it’s required. You can wear a long-sleeved collared shirt for some sophistication but if you’re wearing a regular T-shirt, you can put on a jacket over it. The shirt shouldn’t have any message on it even if you’re trying to look witty or funny. If dandruff is a bit of a problem for you, avoid wearing a black or any dark-colored top.
- Clip your nails!
- Go light on the cologne
- Don't wear a suit
- Flip-flops are a no-no
