Make yourself attractive and seductive in a flash.
When you ask a girl on a date, she will think about it days or hours before. She imagines herself indulging in a nice bath, perhaps wearing a face mask before she puts on her makeup. She wants to look and feel good before the date, so she’ll primp and pamper herself.
Unfortunately, you need at least an hour to do that.
Most of us don’t have the luxury of time before a date. Either work, family, or accidents come in between. We’re lucky to have at least 30 minutes and we start to feel frantic if we have anything less than that.
In this blog, we at Beauty Insider will show you how to get ready for a date in 15 minutes or less. We will teach you how to move fast, to psych yourself up, and to turn into a head-turner!
We don’t have much time, let’s go!
Time left: 15 minutes
Open your closet and take out the dress and the pair of shoes that you saw yourself wearing on this day. You’ve probably tried this outfit days ago so you’re sure that this won’t make you look fat, slutty, or drab. Lay the dress in your bed. After that, strip naked and wrap yourself in a towel.
Time left: 12 minutes
You are short on time so prioritise the important things. Good skin boosts your looks and self-confidence.
Start with moisturising your face. It will keep your skin soft and hydrated under your makeup. Don’t apply too much product so it dries easily. Don’t forget to moisturise your lips as well. You want kissable lips under your lipstick.
Time left: 10 minutes
Then, put on your primer. It will make your makeup last longer. Wear your foundation afterwards. If you need more coverage to hide dark spots and acne, use a concealer. Add glow and warmth on your face with a little blush, bronzer, and lipstick.
Do not forget your brows and lashes. If you think these are chore makeup steps, consider undergoing an eyebrow embroidery or an eyelash extension procedure in a nearby beauty salon. You won’t need to touch up your brows and lashes everyday if you have them done in a good salon.
It is important to maintain a good, light face makeup during an afternoon date. Show him that you have a natural, angelic face that needs a little makeup.
Time left: 3 minutes (alert status)
You don’t have time to curl or iron your hair so just let your hair down. If it is looking a little flat, spray on some dry shampoo. It will increase your hair’s volume, control the oiliness, and keep it fragrant. You’ll feel like you’ve stepped out of a salon.
Time left: 2 ½ minutes
Go grab the outfit you’ve laid on the bed a while ago. Button up or zip it up. Then, wear your shoes. It’s up to you if you’re going to wear heels, wedges, or flats. Make sure it fits the type of date you’re going to do. If you don’t have an idea about your date, wear the most comfortable pair that you have.
Time left: less than a minute
Look at yourself in the mirror, one last time. If you’re satisfied with what you did, book a Grab or an Uber to take you on your date. Relax and patiently wait for your service to arrive.
Once you’re in the car, text him that you’re on your way and you are looking forward to seeing him tonight. Flash your million dollar smile with confidence. Most importantly, allow yourself to have fun on this day. 🙂
