It’s natural to want to look flawless for a romantic date night, but don’t forget that your beauty regimen should also be fun and relaxing for you! After you’ve found the perfect date night outfit, here are easy beauty tips to incorporate into your getting-ready routine. 

Beauty Care Tips

Body Care Essentials

When you’re thinking about how to get ready for a date, your mind might already be wandering off to hair and makeup. But first and foremost, freshen up with a simple body care ritual to relax while freshening up. Start your date night beauty routine with a refreshing shower or bath, indulging yourself with a plant-based body wash or exfoliating scrub. To keep your skin radiant all night, lock in moisture with an illuminating body oil spray.  

Silky Smooth Skin

Next up is skin care. Give your date night makeup a smooth canvas by starting with silky, luminous skin. Nourish your skin with a botanically based routine. So, what should be on your skincare checklist? Even just the basics — think facial cleanser, moisturizer, and treatment — to help you reset your skin for your special evening. 

Makeup & Hair for a Romantic Date Night Look

The possibilities are endless for your date night makeup looks. A full glam look with bold lips and smoky eyes is perfect for a fancy date at an upscale restaurant. For a more low-key date at the movies or an art gallery, a soft glam look with a touch of gloss and soft eyeshadow will do just the trick. At the end of the day, we recommend wearing whatever makeup makes you feel your best! 

So, what about hair? After washing your hair with your favorite nourishing shampoo and conditioner, style it with simple hair care. If you go the whole nine yards with heat-styled hair for your night out, remember to protect your strands with Desert Essence Coconut Hair Defrizzer & Heat Protector Spray

Personal Care and Confidence Boosters

Don’t forget personal care essentials for your final touches (plus touch-ups throughout the night). For lasting odor protection, freshen up with aluminum-free deodorant from Desert Essence — our formulas feature beautiful botanical scents such as Tea Tree Lavender and Powder Fresh. Before you head out the door, remember a quick brush and rinse with minty fresh dental care!

Then, keep your lips kissably soft with a nourishing Desert Essence lip balm — we recommend stashing an extra tube or two in your purse or car for touching up during your date. If you need to freshen up your breath after dinner, also keep Desert Essence Moisturizing Mouth Spray in Arctic Berry handy. 

Confidence-Boosting Habits

Dates can be nerve-wracking, but there are easy ways to keep those jitters at bay. Before you go out to have fun, here are a few confidence-boosting tips to keep in mind while you’re getting ready. 

  • Lift your mood with a playlist for getting ready. Whether you’re partial to smooth jazz or happy-go-lucky pop, listening to music can put you in a relaxed state of mind. 
  • Wear clothes and makeup that make you feel good. The trendiest date night looks might not be the best options for you. Ultimately, choosing products and pieces that genuinely make you feel good will go a long way. 
  • Remember to be yourself. You may want to do your best to impress your special someone, but remember that you’ll have the most fun when staying authentic to yourself. 

With these tips and tricks at the top of your mind, you’re ready to go out and have a good time while looking and feeling your best. Your enchanting date night awaits — shop Desert Essence and let love bloom!
