It's your first time going on a date in too many months to count and you're feeling a heap of emotions.
You really like this guy and you want to make an amazing impression so that just maybe there will be a possibility for a second date. You begin considering your outfit choices and how you'll wear your hair -- finally, you're left with the biggest decision of all. How in the world should you wear your makeup?
You don't want to overdo it, but you want to look like you put in a little effort . You're going for subtle and sexy. You have a few ideas in mind, but you're being extremely indecisive to the point where you want to cancel the date and get back in bed.

Pump your breaks! Too much makeup will result in a disaster.

We all know how stressful the first date can be, especially preparing for the first date.
Honestly ladies, if he liked you enough to ask you out on a date -- more times than often he will like you during the date.You don't want to look like you tried to hard and that's where I come in. If you're second guessing a date because of makeup woes -- relax and let me point you in the right direction to achieve the perfect night makeup look for your first date.

Start off with a clean slate.

So, you've decided you're going for subtle and sexy. When he picks you up, you want his jaw to drop. Do your normal foundation routine and apply concealer as an under eye highlight. Set the concealer with a translucent powder.

A sculptured face is always sexy and makes you appear thinner than usual.

Contour your face and give him Kim K vibes the entire night. Make sure you contour your cheekbones, forehead, nose and the perimeter of your face.

Add some much needed color to your face.

We are keeping it subtle, so a bronzer or a light blush will do the trick.

Mascara is always a must. Apply to both top and lower lashes.

Get your sexy on by adding false lashes if need be. Let's not forget eyeliner. A crisp black cat eye will definitely have him calling you up for a second date.

Keep things simple, yet sexy with a nude lip.

Of course, the best was saved for last. Lipstick or lip gloss is always a must. If you plan on scoring a goodnight kiss make sure your lipstick isn't too overpowering or your lip gloss is too sticky. Nude is always safe. Your look will be pulled together and complete with a few coats.
You're very welcome! I'm sure they will work great :) @Sara3
Thanks for the awesome tips.i'm gonna try it for a relatives wedding.
I guess this article is geared more so towards the daily makeup wearer. So she was probably wearing makeup when they first met in my opinion. I def see where you're coming from though @jlee37
Here's where I have a problem with this: He obviously liked the way you look when he asked you out. Why go through so much to change what he apparently likes? Be yourself. He asked YOU out, not your makeup.
Oh man, that last one really rings true. I haaaaate really sticky lipgloss. Nothing is sexy about getting your hair stuck to your mouth when you're walking into a room or getting out of a car.
