While getting ready for a date, you’re likely to feel giddy, nervous, and slightly uncertain. Despite this fact, you can’t let your nerves get in the way of doing your makeup. The worst thing you can do is try too hard and go overboard with your beauty products. To make sure your date gets a chance to see the real you, go easy on the heavy makeup by avoiding these major mistakes.
1. Black lipstick
No matter how dark and edgy your personal style might be, it’s best to steer clear of black lipstick when going on a date. For one, there’s a high likelihood your date will be apprehensive about kissing you (out of fear of getting black smudged all over their face). If that doesn’t sound bad enough, getting black smudged on your teeth during the date could be disastrous. Dark teeth look like a scene straight out of a horror film, so it’s best to stick to nude, matte lipstick if you must wear some.
