Whether you are catching up with an old flame, meeting your Tinder match for the first time or going out with your bae, the bottom line is that you gotta look on point. But, it isn’t easy when you have date night plans right after work. Why? Cause you have no time to go home, take a shower and glam up. Instead, you have to prep up for the date in your office restroom or—worse—on your way.
But hold on, that doesn’t mean you can’t slay with your looks. Even if you’re literally rushing out of work to meet your date, you could still manage to pull off a stunning look and we will tell you how. Here are five quick tips that will help you look perfectly put together and, well, drop-dead gorgeous for your date night.
- Refresh your base makeup
- Define your brows
- Colour your lids
- Lash game strong
- Wear a glossy nude lipstick
Refresh your base makeup
You probably don’t have the time to do your base makeup but you can fix shiny zones, patchy foundation and creased concealer with a buff of compact powder. Dust some setting powder or compact on your face for a quick touch-up and refresh your worn-down look.
Define your brows
Nothing beats the power of perfectly defined brows when it comes to glamming up. Brush your brows, shape and fill in to get fuller-looking brows. You could go for brushed up, bold or simply defined, whatever you like. All you need is a spoolie and your brow pencil in your bag to bring your brows to life.
Colour your lids
Rock a dreamy eye makeup with coloured lids. Pack a gorgeous light hue like orange, mauve or pink on your lids to instantly add a pop of colour to your makeup look. Better yet, dab your lip colour on your lids and cheeks and pull off the monochrome makeup look.
Lash game strong
Skip the liner and add all the drama to your lashes. Super long, curly lashes are hands down the easiest way to make your look more fun and flirtatious. Amp up the volume and length of your lashes by wearing oodles of mascara and make them look bomb. After all, you’d be batting your lashes on them all throughout the dinner.
Wear a glossy nude lipstick
Swap your boss lady pout for a glossy lip. Carry a lip gloss in the same colour as the one you were wearing all day and quickly top it off with a glossy finish, or wipe your bold lip colour and go for a soft, muted nude lip colour that’s enough to sweep them off their feet.
