If you’re prone to being late and you stumble over every object in your bathroom while getting ready, we have a solution – just grab your striking red lipstick to easily transform your look from day-time into date-night outfit. Red lipstick will accentuate whichever outfit you choose to wear for the special occasion and it will make you look stunning and flawless.

Tone it down with mascara and heavy foundation since you certainly don’t want to look “cakey”, but rather neat and polished for your romantic evening. The same goes for the manicure, ladies.

Nude makeup tones and translucent lip glosses are perfect if you aim for a more intimate conversation with your date because you don’t want heavy tones to distract him from what you’re saying. Neutral makeup shades and tones give you a subtle and playful foundation for building the rest of your date-outfit.

Date-night accessories

When it comes to accessorizing, don’t overdo it. We all love to dress up and play with shapes and designs, but keep it simple for a date night and choose more modest jewelry. A pair of earrings,  wrist-watches and timeless luxury bags are just enough for a date-time accessorizing.

On the other hand, if you are leaning towards an adventurous approach, the right accessory will help you express your style and personality. So, make an exception to the above-mentioned rule and wear a pair of exaggerated earrings or a bigger neck-chain if you want to be more adventurous.

Copper jewelry is also a great choice since it will express your unique flair and authentic style. It pairs well with almost any outfit you choose for a date night. Completing your look with such jewelry often elevates your style way better than you could imagine. The history of copper jewelry goes way back to ancient Egypt and even earlier, giving you a rather mysterious and timeless look.

Find a LBD in your wardrobe. The little black dress gives you a striking body silhouette and it can easily turn an average Wednesday evening into an elegant date night. Pair your dress with accessories that work well together, such as tinted glasses or a modest jewelry for a more sparkly look. For your day-date, pair the LBD with flats or sneakers, and hop in your high-heels for a striking evening look. And for a more intimate dinner with your date, leave your hands accessory-free – it will help you set the right atmosphere.

Among the clothing items that can certainly accentuate your look are slim-fit mid-length dresses in deep colors, such as red, burgundy or autumn-green. A sparkling and long dress is on a more glamorous side of the clothing spectrum and can be the perfect choice if you’re planning a date in a more luxurious restaurant with your significant other.

  1. I agree that for a date night not over doing with accessories is important! A LBD is always nice, and a safe choice 🙂 I will think of that on my next date night 🙂 For ages I am wearing more colors 🙂 Black is nice! Hope you have a sweet day!
