First Date Makeup


First dates can be nerve-wracking, thrilling, or potentially dreadful experiences. I’m convinced that looking your best will allow you to feel your best and can improve your chances of advancing to a second date. Your goal should be to enhance, rather than to mask, your natural beauty when you go out with someone for the very first time. These products will help you show off the real you.

IT Cosmetics Your Most Beautiful You Palette: This gorgeous palette from IT Cosmetics is an anti-aging powerhouse that has everything you need. It includes a matte bronzer that warms your complexion, a radiant luminizer that creates a lit-from-within glow, and a brightening blush, which mimics that much-desired, first kiss flush.

Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation: Charlotte Tilbury claims to have created the “Holy Grail” of foundations with Light Wonder, and she’s not kidding. This foundation is truly gorgeous and natural-looking. The airy and light formula illuminates, smoothes, hydrates, minimizes pores, and reduces wrinkles for perfect-looking skin.

Benefit 3D Brow Tones & Benefit Brow Zings Brow Kit: Perfect brows are a must. In fact, on our first date, my husband told me I had the most beautiful brows he had ever seen. That’s when I knew he was “the one.” Benefit is dedicated to the pursuit of better brows. Since I began using the brand’s 3D Brow Tones and Brow Zings, my brows have never looked better!

Flower Endless Wear Eye Color: This is such a perfect product for a first date. It’s super easy to apply, the color is sheer and lightweight with 12-hour staying power, and the cushiony texture goes on silky. Also, the shimmer lasts all day and all night without creasing or fading. So, even though you’re not planning a 12 hour date, you’ll be sure to look flower fresh in case it does!

Rimmell The Only 1 Lipstick: This is the perfect first date lipstick. It packs tons of moisture for your pucker and it smells delicious. Blotting also has a wonderful effect to ensure that any potential end- of-the-night kiss doesn’t get messy!

Georgie Get Set Creme Gel Eyeliner: This richly pigmented liner sets in a minute, so you end up with waterproof, smudge-proof definition. No raccoon eyes here.
