Tricky. There’s a general sense that you want to go home and do a Bridget Jones style overhaul but time is of the essence. If you’re stuck at work and have seven minutes before you absolutely-need-to-hop-in-a-cab for fear of being The Girl Who Stood Him Up, then you’re in the right place. Here’s what to do to your face . . .
Grab a face wipe; we’re going to start again. You don’t need to with Revlon PhotoReady Makeup ($36.95), it’s good enough to stay on all day, but this will just make you feel fresher. Now, you needn’t worry about looking cakey, this foundation features photochromatic pigments and a light diffusing formula which to you and me means ace, yet invisible coverage. He’ll be none the wiser.
Keep reading . . .Don’t be afraid to bust out a red lip. We are on a mission here girlfriend and that is to make you look drop dead gorgeous. A lightly winged eye, lashings of mascara and a lipSTICK, not gloss (guys hate the gooiness) and you will knock his socks off, sexy lady.
Alternatively, if you’re looking for a more-subdued look, go for just-the-right-amount-of-flush-blush. I don’t need to explain the whole innuendo behind this (and if I do, you are NOT ready to be dating). My absolute fave is Benefit Sugarbomb ($51). It creates a breathless, sexy flush in a matter of moments.
Don’t forget the signature scent . . .
