If you love your eye shadow like I love mine, then pick a light matte that matches your outfit.

Light makeup is essential on a first date.

Eye shadow may make your eyes pop, but just like the cat eyes, wait for another night that is NOT the first date.2

One of the most important first date makeup tips is often one you might not think of as a big deal, but it totally is!

Red lipstick signifies bold, sexy and classy.

Not a bad thing, right?

Well, not necessarily, but it can be a little overbearing for a first date.

During your first date, you don’t want to come off looking like you’re trying too hard, and red sort of makes a bold impression that can be seen that way.2

Plus, it doesn’t look great on everyone in certain shades.

When you choose red lipstick, it needs to exactly the right color for you, and is best worn into the office or a special event instead of a first date where you want to appear as soft and feminine as possible.2
