I've had lots of requests from people asking me to film a first date make-up tutorial as getting your look right for such an occasion can be tricky. I think that one of the most important things to remember is that your personality should shine through no matter what, so if you usually wear a smoky eye then don't feel like you need to do something different and replace this with a statement lip – if you don't feel comfortable your date will be able to tell!
First date make-up should also reflect the date itself – think about what you are going to be doing, are you going for a walk in the park, a romantic dinner, or a party or club? When you take all of this into account there's no one look for all first dates but one thing I've learnt from experience is that the majority of guys don't like women to look like they're wearing tons of make-up – that means heavy bases and garishly bright lips are out (unless that's your signature look of course!!).
The look I decided to do for this film follows this – I've tried to give lots of generic tips of how you can make yourself look and feel your best, with flawless, glowing skin, full lashes (I've used false ones in the film as my lashes aren't naturally full but if you're not used to wearing or applying them then it might be best not to – again, a first date isn't a time to feel uncomfortable) and natural, dewy lips.
In the film I talk about my Grandmother's make-up related first date disaster story – I'd love to hear any that you might have!

I can’t guarantee that all of the make-up and skincare products I recommend will suit you. I only use products I personally think are good having tried them on myself and my clients but everyone's skin is different and it's possible to be allergic to anything. Wherever possible, test products out on yourself before purchasing.
I only feature products I like, or want to try. The products I use in these videos are either purchased by me or sent to me by make-up companies to use in my professional capacity as a make-up artist for fashion and celebrity photo shoots, red carpet etc. I am also sent products by many of the top magazines to judge for awards.
I do not accept payment and am not sponsored to make any of the films on this channel. Some of the links under the videos and blog posts on my site are affiliated however and as stated before, I only feature products I like, or want to try.
