Found: Top Outfit and Makeup Looks Inspiration for your Next Online Date:
For a video chat dating scene, I believe that the ease and pace of a finished look totally rely on person-to-person’s preference and lifestyle. For this reason, we have selected the easiest looks that don’t take much effort but still make you look presentable on the fly. So let’s get started.

Dating Outfits #1: Satin Puff Sleeve Blouse with Pretty, Natural Flush Makeup

A puffy blouse is a nod to vintage and is the ultimate date ‘fit-trust, bae to take notice. Style with the right makeup and you’re good to go.

For this one, I suggest a natural flush makeup finish. To create a similar look, rely on multitasking products like the E.L.F Jelly Pop Flush Blush and Goddess of Love, Triple Baked Highlighter. These two products can allow you to gravitate towards getting a natural flush makeup. Dab a few dots onto eyelids, cheeks, lips, and blend it for a quick glow.

And then you can also use a concealer if you have dark spots. I would encourage you to use a tool you can work swiftly with, be it a wet sponge, brush, or fingers. I have also listed Smashbox Be Legendary Cream Lipstick and L’Oreal Paris Brow Stylist Frame & Set as stellar alternate makeup finishes.

tips on how to choose dating outfits

What you’ll Need:

  • Smashbox Be Legendary Cream Lipstick in Famous
  • L’Oreal Paris Brow Stylist Frame & Set
  • Goddess of Love, Triple Baked Highlighter
  • Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles
  • L.F Jelly Pop Flush Blush

Dating Outfits #2: Plunging Tie Peplum Top with All-Over Glossy Makeup Look

A peplum top is a dressy choice but still works. You’ll be comfy and still be looking sultry to keep the focus on the flirting.

Fast forward on how to draw attention to your makeup – for this one I suggest a glossy makeup look. My best advice is to prep the skin first with a nourishing cream. I chose Tatcha, The Water Cream as it will form the perfect base to give your skin that beaming quality. Next, create a quick standout lash with a mascara like Maybelline Mascara in Total Temptation Washable Blackest Black. Your eyes will instantly brighten up with the product. Plus if you can spare a minute extra adding something to your look, this should be it.

You can also focus on maintaining a feathered brow, softly illuminated skin, and a hint of shimmery lip because these things can read on the camera pretty easily. Also adding a dash of blush can make you look awake, happy, and add major babe points.

How to impress guys on the first date

What you’ll Need:

  • Too Faced Love Light Highlighter in Ray of Light
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade
  • Tatcha The Water Cream
  • Maybelline Mascara Total Temptation Washable Blackest Black

  • Benefit Cosmetics GALifornia Blush

Dating Outfits #3: Satin Cowl Neck Top with Brightly Colored Lashes & Nude Lips

A satin cowl neck top is the perfect online date outfit, because well, it’s essentially lingerie-and it can’t get hotter than that. Pair it with muted nude lips and colored mascara for an elegant, yet relaxed vibe. While you may not be adventurous to play around with mascara shades, but let me tell you that the colorful makeup trend is huge atm. Besides, it will be a great start to show off your personality on your first virtual date. You can try the vibrant hues from Colourpop. If you don’t like blue, then inch your way towards purple, pink, or green.

~Slightly~ less adventurous than your classic blue lashes, the M.A.C Extra Dimension Skinfinish, Beaming Blush will provide a natural flushed look – pretty close to the one below. The cheek color product is user-friendly, while its gradient finish ensures that it evenly blends into your skin tone.

Dating Outfits #4: High Neck Crop Top with Dewy Fantasy Makeup Finish

Need something for your brunch-video-chat-date? This is the look to go for! Show your date that you can still be girly and super-effing cool while chatting online with this flirty high neck crop top. But again, you don’t have to go all-in with your makeup, just because you’re catching up with your date.

A dewy finished look is a whole vibe in itself. You can try the Milk Makeup Blush Lip+Cheek for achieving the same. Dab it all over your lips, cheekbones, bridge of your nose, and lids – yep, it’s that versatile. If you don’t want an all-over glossy look, then prep lids with Huda Beauty, The New Nude Eyeshadow Palette. Bonus points for pairing it with a muted, nude shade on your lips.

Dating Outfits #5: Cut-Out Top with Bold Lashes & Bold Lipstick

There’s something about a cut-out top that just makes you feel so sultry. This would be the perf idea for a dine and wine video call date with your beau – it’ll show you made an effort. Wear with an equally flirty lip, like how supermodel Rosie Huntington Whiteley did. ICYMI, bold lips are the new trend that’s reigning over the beauty world. Wear it with some black mascara and a touch of blush at the hollows of your cheeks – it’ll make you look cooler, less classic. Guaranteed, your date wouldn’t take their eyes off you. Besides if you also want to keep the focus on one thing, this is the right beauty look, sis. Thank us later.
