Chun Woo Hee Kang Ha Neul Marie Claire

There's nothing like a romantic night out with your significant other to help you feel connected and loved. However, getting ready for a date can be stressful when you don’t plan ahead and have no idea what to do. Well we've got you covered on getting ready for date night, from choosing an outfit to preparing yourself mentally and emotionally.

1. Choose Your Outfit
First start with choosing the perfect outfit. If you're not sure what to wear, consider the destination of your date night. Is it a casual restaurant? A fancy dinner? A movie theater? Once you know where you'll be, you can choose an outfit that is both comfortable and appropriate for the occasion and venue. If you're still stuck, try thinking about what you feel most confident in. A date night is a perfect opportunity to dress up and feel like a million bucks. Once you've found your outfit, it's time to move on to hair and makeup.
2. Hair and Makeup
Again, keep in mind the location of your date night when deciding how to do your hair and makeup. If you're going out to a casual spot, you might opt for a more natural and relaxed look. But if you're dressing up for a more upscale venue, now is the time to go all out. You can never go wrong with a sleek updo or pretty curls when it comes to hair. As for makeup, try a smokey eye or a bold lip – whatever makes you feel most beautiful. For some inspiration, check out Maddie's self care tips. One important point to remember is not to overdo it on the hair and makeup. The objective is to enhance your features, not to look like a completely different person.

3. Mentally Prepare Yourself
Now that you have the physical preparations out of the way, it's time to focus on the mental and emotional aspects of getting ready for date night. This is important because how you feel on the inside will show on the outside. Take some time to relax and center yourself before your date. You can do this by taking a bath, reading your favorite book, or listening to calming music. Whatever helps you to relax and feel good in your own skin. It's also important to set an intention for your date night. What do you want to get out of it? You might be hoping build a stronger connection to your partner. Or maybe you're just looking to let loose and have some fun. Whatever it is, setting an intention will help you to focus on what's important and make the most of your time together.

Finally, don't forget to breathe! Taking a few deep breaths before your date will help to calm any nerves and allow you to be present and in the moment. Getting ready for date night doesn't have to be complicated or stressful. Just take some time to prepare yourself physically and mentally and focus on having a great time when the time comes.
