Nervous girl here before a first date with a sickly handsome guy, wants some help with makeup! I am looking for a reasonably sexy / flirty make-up, which does not give the impression of having put in too much effort, but is still attractive. I have a newly purchased one green-glittery eyeliner I never used, but thought the color was so sickly good-looking so had to give in to the desire to have - would be fun if it could be combined into the make-up! Otherwise, I am more for a little muted colors, black-brown-dark purple, but am open for the most part that does not give an exaggerated look :) Have blue-gray eyes, light brown-red hair and a rather cold skin tone.
Hope it can be solved in some way, you want to look as good as possible! ;) Hugs! ”
Descriptive words: Fit is best, Dark but not colorful, I like all kinds of make-up, Dark, Glittery, Eyeliner without wing, Several different eye shadows, Sooty, Intense, Black.
What fun with dating! Of course I want to help you with this :)
I love to mix a little psychology into my make-up, and a date make-up is perfect in that case! It also sounds in your description that you are a bit after a party make-up, so I guess you are going to dinner or similar.
If you sit opposite each other and talk, it is the eyes you want to focus on, I would therefore rather put a little more eye makeup and skip the lips completely. In addition, run on a simple outfit and an everyday hairstyle, an oblique braid perhaps if you have long hair. Then your eyes will shine (!) And you also do not have to think about lip makeup if you eat / drink / kiss;). Moisturize the lips with a little lip balm before just so that they look soft and nice.
As you describe, you want a smoky and intense makeup, and it's great because most guys like smoky eyes on girls (according to my own research). Intense eyes also give a slightly flirty and "sexy" feeling and it will be difficult for the guy to let go of your gaze!
I also recommend lighting up the inside of the eye properly and highlighting under the eyebrow, then your eyes look bigger at the same time as it makes your sweeping not as heavy or "too much".
A shimmery light shadow in the corner of the eye also gives a happier and kinder impression.
I love your glitter idea! If you apply the glitter eyeliner at the end of the upper lash line, it will become discreet when you blink and your eyes will be more interesting to look at. Sometimes when I put on make-up like that, I get the comment "I can not stop looking at your eyes!" and that's exactly how you want it on the first date :)
Be careful with the lashes too, it is important to feel good-looking and flirty. If you have "bad" lashes, you can buy single lashes and glue them instead of a whole row of false eyelashes, it gives a more natural result!
I do not have this eyeliner myself, but I mixed in a little green false eye shadow in my gold glittery eyeliner from True Gold so it turned out similar!
I have used these colors from the palette from Boots no 7 that I wrote about in this post.
1. Light eye shadow deepest on the eyelid and up below the eyebrow.
2. Brown-green eye shadow in the middle of the eyelid.
3. Plum brown eye shadow at the end of the eyelid.
4. Black eye shadow at the end of the lower lash line and up at the end of the eyelid.
5. Blur the edges.
6. Black eyeliner along the upper lash line, Kryolan Cake Eyeliner.
Black eyeliner at the bottom of the waterline, Yves Rocher Eyeliner (01 Noir)
7. Light shimmery eye shadow in the corner of the eye and at the bottom of the lower lash line, Annika's Favorite Shadow.
8. Green glitter eyeliner (mine is greenish gold) over the black eyeliner on the upper lash line.
9. Black mascara on all lashes, nudh mineral Mascara.
This is a real party make-up if you match it to a dress and curly hair, but if you are a little more discreet on the front that I mentioned earlier, this make-up will be perfect for a date!
If you feel that it is still a little too dark, just soot a little less under the eye and skip the elongated shape and the make-up will immediately become more discreet.
Good luck on the date !!
