How to Look Amazing on Your First Meeting

You finally scored a date with that one person you like. It’s time to take a big leap and put your best foot forward. Not sure how you will approach the situation? Are you struggling to figure out what to wear? Learn how you can look amazing and leave a lasting impression on our date with the tips and tricks listed below.

See to it that your hair smells nice
Your crowning glory is one of the first things a person notices when you meet them. That’s why it’s best practice to wash and fix your hair when you go on a date. For the women, don’t forget to apply enough heat protectant on your hair if you will process it with equipment such as curling rods and flat iron. 

For the males, see to it that you use the right styling product. You don’t need to use a lot of products. You can settle for styling cream, pomade, or hair wax.

Gray suits

Dress not to impress  
First meeting is not about dressing to impress. Unless you’re 100 percent comfortable and confident with the clothes you choose to wear so always use like grey suits. It will only affect how you present yourself to your date. You can either use an old item or invest in a new one. 

Worry about the cost of a new outfit? You don’t need to dress up in a super-expensive attire. Surely, there are plenty of stores that sell within your price range. If you’re a lady, you can look for affordable modest dresses, skirts, or other kinds of items at your favorite fashion boutique. 

For the males, look for clothing that will make you look sharp and dapper. At the same time, see to it that your personal style resonates with your choice of clothes.  

Don’t try too hard
The last thing you want to do is appear like you are trying too hard to get one’s attention. If you’re a woman, wearing something that’s too flashy or too revealing might send the wrong message. Let your personality stand out with simple clothes, accessories, and footwear.

For the males, be sure to avoid showing up in a too formal get up. At the same time, don't be too relaxed. Remember to be yourself! Also, don’t think about it too much. Let things flow as naturally as you can. 

Light makeup is always the best look to use!
One of the most common mistakes of women who go out on a date is wearing too many layers of cosmetic products on the face. It’s totally unnecessary! While there’s nothing wrong about celebrating one’s love for makeup, it’s just not ideal to use too much. It won’t do anything good for your skin. 

Opt for a lighter and simpler look that will best highlight your assets. Also, make sure to pick a mild color palette. If you will go out on an evening date, you can explore darker shades. Make sure to keep things subtle to avoid creating an intimi first meeting look. Let the real you take the spotlight.

Don’t wear your heart on your sleeve
It’s your first date! Don’t be too quick to show your emotions or start forming attachments. Take your time to get to know your new-found acquaintance. It’s hard to know how the encounter will turn out, so it’s best to be cautious. Have fun during your date and show as much restraint as you can. Regardless if you’re a man or woman, don’t wear your heart on your sleeve, especially when you meet new people for the first time.

Going out on a first date can be quite nerve-wracking especially for total newbies. There are just so many things you need to think of all at once. It’s normal to worry about how things would turn out or how you should present yourself. Go through the tips once more and take note of them when you meet someone you like.
