Getting your look just right is essential for that crucial first date. When we first meet someone, what we notice is mainly on the surface – hair, dress, features, make-up. It’s only as we develop a relationship that we get to know them in more depth. So, as much as we might not want to admit it, we are drawn together – at least primarily – by the way we look. If you met on a dating site such as eHarmony Australia, the opposite may be true – you may already have got to know someone’s personality before you meet them. But even here, a first date is bound to have an emphasis on the exterior.
Either way, on a first date it’s always a good idea to spend a while on your appearance – then hopefully the rest will follow. Here are a few tips for getting your look right for a first date:
Keep your hair simple but out of the way for a first date. You don’t want to be hiding behind a fringe on this important occasion – you want them to be able to see your whole face in all its glory. This doesn’t mean you have to put all of your hair up – the best is to go for a half and half, clipping back the front of your hair but keeping the back down for a natural but elegant look.
A big mistake some women make is to go all out for a first date, plastering their faces with foundation and going for the maximum effect on lips and eyes. This may make you feel dressed up and less nervous, but it can be a massive turn-off. It could be giving off completely the wrong impression.

For first dates it’s best to keep the make-up subtle. Pick a foundation that matches your skin tone and don’t wear too much of it. Choose a brown-coloured blusher and a pale lipstick while keeping eyes as underdone as possible – just some effective mascara could be all that’s needed here. This will mean they’ll see a natural beauty, not a superficial one.

Try to keep your outfit as modest as you can for a first date. It’s essential you don’t give the wrong impression. Low-cut, short outfits will certainly paint a cheaper image than a knee-length, elegant dress. Having less flesh on show will intrigue and impress someone a lot more than if your outfit leaves nothing to the imagination. Keep it simple as well – single colours come across as a lot more sophisticated than bold, lurid patterns.
While it might be a good idea to keep outfits modest and simple, you can jazz this up with some great accessories. This is an area where you’ll want to show off your personality. Try not to go for anything too over-the-top though, and avoid heels that are uncomfortable and difficult to walk in.
