Spring is coming to an end, but that doesn’t mean there’s no time left to show off your sense of taste. Spring is generally a time when you no longer need to hide behind dozens of sweaters to keep yourself warm, as it’s no longer cold, and you don’t have to worry about the makeup melting yet, as it’s not as hot as in summer. Some think that makeup isn't that important at all because a lot of guys are eager to meet single girls, regardless of whether they wear makeup or not. Others spend hours, thinking about what makeup they should wear for a promising first date with some charming stranger they met online. Some even choose whether to wear makeup or not, depending on the dating site they used to find a companion.
So, should you wear makeup on your spring date? Well, yes. Are there any other special requirements for a spring date? Definitely! But there is no point in nervously scratching your head, as you are about to figure out how to look great on a spring date without overdoing it. So, let’s proceed without further ado.
Stick to a Casual Outfit.
Of course, you want to impress your companion on your first offline date, but it's spring, and you need to look natural. That’s why it's better to stick to a casual outfit. And there's one more thing to consider—your outfit should fit the occasion. While something thick can make you look sexy, keep in mind that you’re probably going to have a walk. A tight outfit can make a date far less romantic, and more tiresome.
If you have a date in a restaurant or café, put on something classic. And no, office outfits (like midi-skirts, white shirts, and jackets) aren't a good choice. The image should look spring-ish, and not make your companion feel like you two are just having a lunch break, and about to go back to work. Wear a white shirt, but only in combination with skinny jeans. Or combine denim shorts with a classic jacket of a light shade.
When going for a walk in the park, it's better to pick an outfit that feels as comfortable as possible, do ditch high heels and stilettos. Choose classic sneakers or sandals. For a long walk, is best to pick a light, sexy dress (but not too sexy!) or a jumpsuit. You can also combine a silk blouse with a skirt, and complement your romantic look with stylish accessories. Remember, comfort comes first!
Avoid Flashy Jewelry.
Speaking of accessories. The previous point shows that a subtle look is perfect for a spring date. And what fits a subtle look better than jewelry? Some gold earrings with a thin gold bracelet will be a perfect combination.
Choose the accessories wisely. This means that you shouldn’t overdo it with flashy jewelry. Putting on everything you have in your stash is a bad idea, because your companion may assume that you have no taste. Most guys prefer simplicity. Expensive jewelry won’t look great either. They fit perfectly for special occasions, but wearing them every day is a sign of bad taste.
First, let’s sort things out with makeup. Your natural beauty is the most important thing on a spring date, so a bit of mascara and eyeliner should be quite enough. Just mind that you shouldn’t overdo it, so ditch the bold eyeliner. Now, you need to pick a lipstick. As it's still spring, and natural beauty is valued, you should pick a lipstick that will compliment your complexion, and skin tone. So forget about hot pink or bright red lipstick. While bright colors can make you look sexy, your lips look more kissable when you’re using more natural colors.
Natural Looking Glow
If you get a natural looking glow, you may immediately stop feeling any need for makeup. So why not ditch makeup in favor of a tan-spraying booth? A perfect tan will make you feel much more comfortable on the date.
Pick a Simple Hair Style.
You can even leave your hair as it is, or just have your hair half-up, which will make you look sexy. But there’s no need for some serious hair-styling, as you're going to be focused more on whether your hair is all right, rather than on your date.
