What Your Makeup Says About You On Your First Date

What Your Makeup Says About You On Your First Date

It's the age-old question: to makeup or not to makeup on a first date? We say, why not both?

The right kind of makeup can send all sorts of signals to your date. Whether you like it or not, first impressions do matter. And if you want to make a good one, your makeup can say a lot about you.

So whether you're going for natural and understated or full-on glam, we've got you covered!

The No Makeup Look

You're low-maintenance, confident, and comfortable in your own skin. You're not trying too hard, which can be a major turn-on.

Plus, this look says you're probably pretty great at the whole "au naturel" thing in other areas of your life *wink wink*.

But beware, going totally makeup-free can also give off the impression that you don't really care about your appearance—not exactly the message you want to send on a first date.

The Natural Makeup Look

You're effortless, charming, and approachable. You want your date to get to know the real you, so you're not hiding behind a mask of heavy foundation and false eyelashes.

But that doesn't mean you're not without your fair share of secrets. After all, even the most natural-looking makeup requires at least a little bit of work to achieve!

The Glamorous Makeup Look 

You're bold, fun, and up for anything. You love experimenting with new trends and are always game for a good time.

Just one word of caution: don't go too overboard with the glitter or smoky eye—you don't want your date to think you partied a little too hard last night!

Or you know what-- so maybe you did, and you just don't care. In which case, go ahead and rock that smokey eye! We're all for owning your bad-assery.

The Editorial Makeup Look

You're creative, unique, and one-of-a-kind. You love expressing yourself through your appearance and are not afraid to take risks.

However, this look can sometimes be overwhelming or even intimidating. After all, some people can't handle too much of a good thing!

So if you're going for this look, we applaud your confidence. Just make sure your date is on the same page!

The "I Woke Up Like This" Makeup Look

You're carefree, easygoing, and effortless. You don't take yourself too seriously and are always up for a good time.

This look says you're confident and comfortable in your own skin. And who doesn't love a woman who knows how to rock a good cat eye?

But beware, this look can also come across as lazy or uninterested. So if you're going for casual, make sure you don't accidentally look like you just rolled out of bed!

The Bottom Line

No matter what kind of message you want to send on your first date, there's a makeup look for that. From no makeup at all to full-on glam, there's an option for everyone.

But one thing's for sure: whatever look you're going for, remember to bring your touch-up kit. You never know when you might need it!

The ForChics Travel Bag is the perfect option for on-the-go touch-ups. It can fit all your makeup essentials, plus a few extras for good measure!

So have fun experimenting until you find the perfect look for yourself. And who knows? Maybe your date will be so enamored with your killer cat eye that they'll forget all about your awkward small talk.

Hey, it could happen!
