As women we tend to overdo everything. We overdress, over accessories, and most of all, we really over think. I won’t claim to be an all wise guru on what is appropriate, but here are some tips I’ve uncovered along my life.
Makeup, ladies, is our best frenemy. A wrong shade of foundation can make you look washed out, or like an oompah loompah (or jersey shore orange for the younger readers). A bright lipstick may make a first date get the wrong impression (and yes I have that under good authority unfortunately), and no makeup at all might make you seem like you don’t care at all. Not caring is fine, but if that’s your case, you may find the rest of this post unrelatable and boring.
So here’s my bare face… Dum Dum DUUUUUM
Keep it light, so go for bb creams, light mascara, cheek and lip stains etc.
2. A job interview.
Important to not show up looking exhausted, but no hooker face. So serums, concealer, mascara and rosy lipstick (note how I said rosy and not pink. No fushia please).
3. A first date.
Men are visual creatures, yet they hate the “fakeness” of makeup. Seems paradoxical considering makeup is supposed to make you look better… The trick is to trick them into thinking you’re naturally flawless, without going overboard, or the morning after might be full of surprises. Primer, light foundation and concealer for the face. I suggest enhancing your eyes with a nice black eyeliner, light blush, and light lipstick. Don’t go red yet!
4. Girls Night Out!
Best night for makeup lovers. Go all out ladies! Red, fushia, plum lips welcome! There are no rules when you’re hanging out at a bar with the girls. It’s time to experiment.
P.S: Try not to look like you just stumbled into your grandma’s makeup (creepy hooker clown coming up)
