Food for thought: New makeup is not always the right makeup!

When it comes to meeting a new Mr Charming for the first time, we all tend to get carried away. Which is natural, as we all want to make a great impression and show him just how lucky he is. So, we decide to go for a new hairstyle, put on some new makeup and buy a new dress. But to be honest, as fun as it might be, reinventing your style for a first online date is not necessary at all. He got to know you beforehand and is already mesmerized, and he already thinks that you are beautiful. If he has not seen you in person due to the current circumstances, he has certainly seen some pictures of you and was smitten right there and then.

Really: Not every new makeup and/or hairstyle turns out as we have imagined them. Some truly backfire! And that is not what you’re looking for when going on your first date, right? So, instead of trying out some new styles for your first online date, stick to the ones you’re familiar and comfortable with.
