The Rules of First Date Make-Up

6 Feb

DO give yourself plenty of time. Arriving in a flap with mascara smudged across your face is not a good first impression.

DON’T wear bright lipstick – not unless you’re definitely not intending to kiss them! (if all else fails have wet wipes close by)

DO stick to your personal style. Always wear blue flicky eyeliner? Then he better accept from the start. (Unless your signature style is red lipstick, in which case, see above).

DON’T over-do it. ‘Applied with a trowel’ is not a good look.

DO take a little mirror on your bag. That way you can check just before arrival that you haven’t managed to mess it up.

DON’T worry if you’re having a bad skin day. Just invest in a brilliant concealer and remember that you always notice these things way more than anyone else.

DO go to the ladies during the evening to make sure you haven’t wiped your face off during that passionate conversation about why you’re so pleased Clapham now has a Waitrose.

DON’T wear so much hairspray he has to go outside for a breather every half an hour.

DO take a compliment – DON’T cackle and shout “you should SEE me without make-up” when you get one.
