Whether you’re preparing for a first date or a much needed night out away from the kids, date night stirs plenty of anticipation and excitement. In fact, few nights create such a stir. What’s not to love about date night? It’s a chance to get dressed up, break out of the monotony, and head out on the town. The following are six ideas to ensure you look and feel your absolute best when date night rolls around.
1. Get Some Extra Rest
Looking and feeling your best for date night begins the night before. Make sure you go to bed early the night before your big date. With all the added excitement of a first or second date, getting to sleep can be difficult but your efforts will be rewarded. The extra beauty sleep will leave you looking well rested for your night out.
2. Treat Yourself to a Facial
If your date night is planned in advance, treat yourself to a mini facial the week before. Many franchised spas offer facials at very reasonable rates so you don’t have to spend a fortune. Your pores will thank you and your skin will look radiant by date night.
3. Don’t Neglect Your Brows
If you want to look your best for date night, make an appointment at a salon or spa for a quick eyebrow wax. A well-shaped brow can transform your face. Quick, easy, and inexpensive, a professional brow wax can make all the difference in the way your face looks on date night.
4. Get With the Times
If you normally shy away from trendy fashion styles, date night is the perfect time to experiment and get outside your comfort zone. Break out with a new pair of colorful jeans.
5. Give Yourself Plenty of Time
There is nothing worse than being rushed while getting ready for a date. Give yourself plenty of extra time to prepare. Take a long shower or bath to relax. Makeup and hair can take much longer than expected, so plan accordingly.
6. Don’t Forget to Accessorize
The perfect outfit needs the perfect accessories. Don’t leave the house without a flashy necklace or bracelet to complete your new look. For a chilly date night, match your new jeans with the perfect scarf.
Hopefully you enjoy the preparation; it can be just as fun as the date itself.
