Ah, Summer lovin'. The weather is just warm enough for Dave in accounting to start noticing you in that cute Summer skirt you started wearing to work. The Christmas party happens, you flirt, and before you know it he's asking you out to dinner and drinks without your coworkers, huzzah!
But Summer weather or no Summer weather, there is something very specific about first date makeup. You don't want to trick the person you're dating into thinking you are some airbrushed, goddess, shimmery mermaid, nor do you want them to think that you are one kitten away from entering CCL territory (Crazy Cat Lady) by rocking up drab and disheveled.
Whether we like it or not, the first date is all about impressions that are just as much about your appearance as your personality. This isn't to say that you need to go all out glam-bam crazy — more subtle and sophisticated while you let your outstanding personality do the rest!
Below we have the tutorial from one of our faves who shows us how to do timeless date appropriate beauty with a twist. Thanks to this, you'll be on your second date in no time at all!
