I - amazingly - got asked out on a date by my supervisor at work when I returned home from university. First dates are always a nightmare - nerves kick in concerning what outfit to wear, what make-up look to go for and how to generally act. They always seem to be such a big deal because you want to make a good impression - even if you know them already! And the supervisor status just added to the stress.
Thankfully it went extremely well. He took me to a little restaurant in his town which was super friendly and had that 'community' spirit which I absolutely loved. The atmosphere helped put us both at ease and the date could not have gone any better, which was a huge relief and it has made me a very happy girl indeed!
I went for a very simple outfit. I paired a plain t-shirt with a striped cardigan and some skinny jeans and jazzed it up a little bit with a silver collar necklace from H&M and my heeled Chelsea boots from Ebay. As one of my friends said, 'you don't want to give all your goods at once'. So I kept it plain and simple yet classy enough to make me feel good about myself and more to the point confident!
I kept the make-up simple too - I think a huge amount of makeup can potentially scare a guy away. So, I applied a base of 17's BB cream in medium with a touch of Rimmel's Wake Me Up concealer to conceal any little blemishes. Maxfactor's cream blusher in 'soft pink' added a subtle hint of colour to the cheeks without making me look like I was caked in product. I curled my upper lashes and used a coat Yves Rocher mascara in Black (from a previous Glossybox). I didn't apply this on the bottom lashes because it transfers quite easily!
To finish the makeup off I used a little bit of the rose tinted vaseline on my lips, and that was it. It was a very natural, dewy, Spring makeup. And that's that. There is another date to come, so I will be sure to show you guys how I dress then.
Hope you guys are all well.
