Lipstick on Your Teeth

Applying lipstick when going on your first date is a must. In fact, research has proven that putting on a pink or red lipstick increases the chances of someone being attracted to you. Nonetheless, overdoing the lipstick to the extent that it gravitates towards the teeth is a bad idea. This makes you look like a clown.

Too Much Fragrance or Perfume

With the anxiety and nervousness, you need some perfume to cover the smell emanating from your sweat. Be cautious not to use it in excess because this can be irritating to your partner or even result in frequent sneezing.

Long Eyelashes

This is something most women are guilty of. There is nothing awkward about applying false eyelashes to look good. However, feathery and extremely long and thick lashes are a no on your first date. The development of new technology enables you to modify your eyelashes or false eyelashes while maintaining the usual length.

Scary Nails

When doing your manicure and pedicure, avoid wearing nails that are too long or colors that are too dark because this can scare your guy. Ensure your nails are clean. Then, wear neutrals to impress. Having poorly kept nails might send an impression of you being unhygienic.

Overloading Bronzer

With excessive bronzer, guys tend to notice that your face and neck do not match. This gives the impression that you are wearing a mask. To avoid this, use a bronzer that is one or two shades darker than your natural skin color and ensure that you spread it evenly down to your neck and cleavage.

Excessively Penciled Eyebrows

There is a vast difference between natural eyebrows and those drawn with dark pencil. Very dark black brows created by a pencil are a big turn off to most guys. Wearing your eyebrows naturally or having them done by a professional will make you feel confident on your first date.
