Whether it’s your first time meeting or a night out with your husband of 20 years, date night is always something to get excited about. However, it does involve a lot of planning: where to go, what to do and most importantly, what to wear and how you’ll look. According to a study discussed by popular women’s blog Her, the average woman will kiss 15 men, go on four disaster dates, be stood up once and be in two long-term relationships before she meets “The One.” So, that means we’re looking at a lot of different outfits for each night out.
When it comes to date-night, you want to feel at your peak confidence, so what should you focus on to get that bold and fabulous looks? Lets take a look at a few key focus points.
1. The Perfect Outfit
The outfit is usually the most difficult part — sexy, date appropriate and shows off all your best attributes. Wearing a dress is always a great idea as it’s feminine, a little flirtatious and super versatile; you can dress it down with casual jacket or heeled boots, or dress it up with some jewelry and heels. When trying to wear something different for each date night, look into some sexy bodysuits, black jeans or a cute jumpsuit to change it up.
2. Smoky Eye
A smoky eye is one of the fastest and most effective ways of taking your look to the next level. Depending on your skin color, employ different colors including silvers, grays, dark purples and navy to create the perfect smoky eye for your complexion and eye color. Add lash extensions to create an even bolder look — you can find high-quality and comfortable extensions and easy-to-use eyelash extension glue that will make your makeup choices come together smoothly.
3. Contouring and Highlights
To add to that glamorous look, make sure your face is flawless. How do you do this? Contouring and highlighting is a quick trick you can use during your makeup routine to accentuate the best part of your face, and hide the parts you don’t feel comfortable with. Common places to contour include your temples, nose, cheekbones, jawline, eye crease and the inner corners of your eye.
4. Bold Lip
A bold lip is the perfect way to add a little drama to your look. Whether it’s red, pink, maroon or any other color you enjoy, make sure it fits with your outfit and suits your skin tone, as well as the rest of your makeup. Be sure to use a lip liner to top off the look, and don’t forget to take it with you on date night so you can reapply throughout the evening, and avoid that faded lipstick look.
5. The Right Hairstyle to Match
You’ve got your outfit and your make up completed, the last part to complete the look is the right hairstyle to match everything. If you have a special feature on your outfit, like a unique neckline of necklace, tie your up to show off this feature. If you prefer to keep your hair out and flowing, maybe add a bit of glamour by putting a straightener or curling rod through it.
Date night is something to look forward to, and is the perfect opportunity to dress up and feel extra glamorous. Pay close attention to these few aspects of your look to ensure you go out feeling extra bold and beautiful.
