Every woman desires to look their utmost best when they are going out on a date. We often stress about everything, besides the date itself. We stress about what we are going to wear, which shoes will work perfectly with the outfit and what accessories we need. As much as all those things are important, they won’t mean much if your face doesn’t look flawless.
The makeup industry has opened up a whole new world that most women are still trying to navigate. It can be overwhelming if you are not a makeup artist or a makeup enthusiast, but one piece of advice I can give you is that practice makes perfect. So the more you do your own makeup, the better you will get at it and have a better understanding of your facial features and your skin type.
Now, going back to the makeup for the date, the eyes are the key. That’s the first thing that he’s going to notice and that is what your date will be focused on when having a conversation with you, so it is very important that you make sure that you get your eye makeup just right and beautiful. Most people believe that the eyebrows are what make the face, so if you mess up your eyebrows, just forget it, the whole look is ruined. Let’s not put a lot of focus of your eyebrows as that can be very tricky for beginners. You can still get beautiful eye makeup without drawing your eyebrows. Just brush your eyebrows and keep them natural. Your make up will still look good, even better if you ask me, because you’ll look more natural and your true beauty will shine through. So let’s start with the tips
Eye Shadow Primer
It is important that you start by using an eye-shadow primer or base. This helps to ensure that your make up stays in place the whole time and that the makeup does not crease. You want the various colours to remain just where you put them and that they don’t smudge and ruin your look. So base you lids with a primer, you can use your finger or a brush.
For you to make your eyes look big and bold, you need to create depth using your eye-shadow. To create depth you start by applying a light coloured eye-shadow all over your eyelid. Once this is done, you take a darker eye-shadow colour and then apply it to the crease of your eyelid. Always remember to blend, whether you are using a makeup brush or finger; just make sure that you blend well. The colours should flow into each other. This will then create the element of dimension, bringing character to your eyes.
Choosing The Right Colour Contacts for Your Eyes
This could easily be classified as the most important step in the process as you have to ensure that the colour you choose compliments not only your outfit but also your eye colour. You don’t always have to work with your natural eye colour. You can get eye contact lenses in any colour that you like, so if you want blue eyes you can just get contact lenses in that colour. Let’s say perhaps you have blue eyes, it doesn’t mean that you should now have blue eye-shadow on your eyelids. You need to find a complementary color. You can use a colour wheel to help you with this so that you can find the perfect colour to use that will compliment your eye colour. For blue eyes, you can use a bronze or copper eye-shadow. You need to also note your skin tone, the darker your skin tone is, it is best that you use warmer colours for your eyes.
When it comes to eyeliners, you have the option of gel, pencil or liquid. If this is all new to you, I would suggest that you use a pencil liner, as it is much easier to control. To apply the liner to the top lash line. If you have light coloured eyes, I would suggest that you use brown eyeliner instead of black eyeliner. You need to work the eyeliner as close to your lash line as you can get. If you want a smokier eye look, apply black or brown eye-shadow to your lower lash line with an eye-shadow brush; remember to make sure that it meets at the eyeliner from the top lash line at the outer corner of your eye.
Highlight Your Eyes
Now you can just highlight your eyes in all the right areas. Apply a light sparkly eye-shadow right below your eyebrow and also by your tear ducts, this is the final step to having fantastic eye makeup.
Apply the correct colour foundation for your skin lightly with a foundation brush all over your face. Be careful not to put too much so you look like a doll, remember we are going for a natural look, and so just apply it lightly. If you have any blemishes or spot to cover up. Make sure that you start by covering them up with concealer then follow up with the foundation.
Now it’s time to apply powder on your face. Apply it lightly, and again, you need to make sure that it is the correct colour for your look. Focus on your T-panel as it tends to be oily. You T-panel is your forehead, nose, and chin area.
Gently apply a blush; I would suggest a soft pink, to your cheeks. You can smile, as this is helpful for beginners to see where to apply the blush. Gently and lightly apply it to your cheeks an make sure that it is blended well and it looks natural.
When it comes to the lipstick, the colour you use is all up to you. If you feel that your lips are too small, you can over line them with a lip liner and then apply your lipstick to your new lip line. Just be careful not to overdo it, it still needs to look natural.
That’s it, follow these nine easy steps, and I’m sure you’ll be looking great for your date. The last thing that you need to apply is confidence. If you have the confidence that is all you need to look great and enjoy your date, I hope this will help you seek the just the way you want to watch. Oh, and by the way, all the best for your date!
