If you’ve got a big date night coming up the best way to approach it is with confidence. To be confident you need to feel confident so instead of doing certain things to make yourself look a certain way, chose to do things because they make you feel confident. That way you can enjoy you night and really let your hair down.
Whiten Your Teeth
Are you embarrassed or self-conscious about your teeth, smile or tooth colour? Then solve it by treating your teeth ahead of your date. You can do this at home or via a dentists, of course doing it at home will be much cheaper and quicker. I've tried so many products over the years and found that whitening strips give the best results, this is why they're so popular in the U.S but I'd recommend that you read reviews first and make sure you buy from a reputable retailer.
Have a Soak in the Bath
Do you suffer from anxiety ahead of important events? I'd recommend a long soak in the bath with a new mask, hair treatment or bath treat. Take your time, have some champers and put on some music. Really take your time, make sure you draw your bath early on in the day and enjoy it. You'll find that you're much more relaxed once you get out.
Prep Your Skin
Worried about dry skin, your foundation not applying smoothly or hives? Whatever your skin issue is make sure you spend time by prepping before your big date. If it's your complexion you're worried about I recommend using a face mask, as the pores will absorb the active ingredients and improve in tone. Planning on tanning then you should exfoliate your face and body, as this will get rid of dead skin cells, stop product buildup and make you glow.
After exfoliating, it’s the perfect time to remove any excess hair you don’t want. Shaving after exfoliating will allow you to get a closer shave for perfectly smooth legs! Some people like to do this the night before date night, depending on how sensitive their skin is. You don’t want red legs with open pores!
Make Your Lips Kissable
Dry lips ruin a kissable your pout. Make your lips look soft and kissable by exfoliating them and applying a lip balm. It’s up to you whether you use a gloss or a lipstick when doing your makeup later on, but getting rid of any dry skin first is a must.
Having bouncy hair can also make you feel amazing. That's why we feel awesome when you come out of the hairdressers. Don’t go crazy with the hairspray trying to keep your hair in place, as you’ll only get crunchy results! Loose waves are a great hairstyle to go for and you only need minimal products and time to achieve great results. Salt spray is recommended and you can use curl-definer also if you want to really spoil yourself. As for the curls you could use a hot tool, curl barrels or even your normal hair straightener. Youtube is your friend for tutorials.
Layer Your Fragrance
Fragrance has the power to make or break you. Flower based scents are romantic, girlie and feminine. Wood and earth based tones add some confidence and amber notes just add sex appeal. You can really customise your own scent ahead of your date by layering. Why not wear an amber note in your body cream, a white flower based perfume spray and an earthy EDT to really balance you. This customised scent will make you feel womanly, confident and powerful. Plus, layering you can be sure your scent will last all night!
Plan Your Outfit Carefully
You should plan your outfit carefully if you want to look and feel your best on your date. It’s tempting to buy a new outfit, but what if you discover something you don’t like about it afterwards? Instead, choose something you know you look great in, and you won’t feel the tiniest bit self conscious. Sure you're outfit may end up being comfortable and plain but you can dress it up and glamourise with your accessory choices. Tacori rings are a real treat and will instantly make any outfit look amazing. Don't wait on a partner to be to purchase it for you, buy that piece of jewellery yourself and I promise you'll be strutting with confidence whenever you wear it.
Watch What You Eat and Drink
Uncomfortable wearing tight clothing or showing your lumps and bumps? Worried your breath is going to smell or that you may smell? Then watch what you eat ahead of the day. Earlier on in the day you might want to avoid foods with garlic and drinks like coffee. Carry some mints with you too, so your breath is nice and fresh and you don't spend time worrying. As for the bloating, try to reduce your carbs right before you go out. Make sure you're hydrated and if you do get peckish, fill up with fruit or veggies to keep the bloat at bay.
Overall, be yourself and have an amazing time!
