He finally texted you asking you out for coffee, and you’re over the moon! But suddenly, you realize you have less than half an hour to get ready and be your best self. You don’t want him to notice you’ve been playing the part of a couch potato until 5 minutes ago with one hand firmly grasping the remote control, and the other digging deep into a large bowl full of freshly made popcorn, do you?
There’s no need to panic. I’m here to help you transform yourself from a fuzzy-looking creature into a real femme fatale in no time so here is the ultimate SOS guide to good looks you’ll ver need.
Soft skin around the eyes
Use olive or almond oil to massage the area around your eyes for about 5 to 10 minutes. This will make your skin more elastic, and renew your eyelashes.
There’s no time to wash your long hair and make it look presentable for your upcoming date? Don’t worry. If you’re into a loose look, try a dry shampoo. Another thing you can do is style your hair into a bun which will make you look neat and elegant. You can also tie a headscarf into a cute bow and try to pull off the pin-up look of the 50s.
Doing a complicated make-up routine is also out of the question. As is the vamp look. After all, it is an afternoon coffee date. The solution is simple – red lipstick. You see, it’ll give you that touch of pizzazz you so desperately need right now.
You only need to apply translucent nail polish and your nails will be shiny again.
You’re too pale-looking because your busy schedule prevents you from enjoying the sun? Applying a lil’ bit of blush can do wonders here. Go for a pink blush shade, or a peach one. Press the tip of your brush to the middle of your cheekbone, and in slow circular motion move the brush towards your ear. A sophisticated look is guaranteed, trust me.
Try using in-shower skin moisturizers/conditioners. You see, such skin care products contain a unique formula activated by water. That’s why you apply them to damp skin previously washed with a shower gel, and afterwards, you simply rinse with lukewarm water. And voilá! Your skin feels silky smooth now, and there’s nothing stopping you from jumping into your favorite pair of jeans.
