Pre-Date Beauty Checklist

Here's a little Pre-Date Beauty Checklist that Beth Shapouri over at Glamour wrote for all you ladies out there prepping for a hotsie date.

1) Exfoliate. There’s nothing like smooth, soft skin to make a gal feel extra sexy.
2) Shave. Although you may choose to skip this step if it’s early in the dating process and you want to make sure you don’t let things get…you know…too far. Or skip it if you’d rather just rock your natural level of hairiness.
3) Moisturize from head to toe. You want to be soft everywhere.
4) Take care of any facial-hair situation you may have going. This includes grooming of the eyebrows and removal/bleaching of unwanted hair. It happens, but it’s not the kind of thing you want to think about while sipping a glass of pinot g with your crush.
5) Use a lip scrub. It’ll make your lips feel like butter. Key for smooching.
6) Apply makeup. Now, this one I’m keeping vague because the amount of makeup that makes you feel hot is totally a personal preference (but in case you’re lost, check out these 9 way pretty date makeup ideas). I will say that the one thing that’s an across-the-board must-have is mascara—a good non-clumpy mascara. Check out our readers’ favorites here for a few good suggests.
7) Apply your favorite scent. Smelling good is a huge part of upping your confidence, so make sure you’re wearing a perfume, lotion or body spray with a scent that makes you happy. (BTW if you’re curious, here are a few that put guys in the mood!) Oh, and let’s lump deodorant in this category too. Can’t forget that.
8) Floss. You can skip flossing and just brush your teeth or gargle with mouthwash. Or gum will do in a pinch. Basically you want to make sure you’ve got fresh breath. I also like to put on a whitening strip, but that’s really optional.
