Beauty Mark It! First-Date Fabulous

Do you get nervous before a first date, or are you cool, calm, and collected? Regardless, I'm sure you just want to look your best from clothing to hair to makeup. One of my newly single friends is back on the market, and she asked for some advice on how to present herself as the complete package — both brains and beauty.

She doesn't want to scare the guy away with an overly done up face (high maintenance, hello?). She also doesn't want to appear too plain, like she made no effort at all. What looks can you recommend so that she comes off as sophisticated, flirty, and second-datable?

I'll get you started with Bare Escentuals' BareMinerals All-Over Face Color ($18) in Clear Radiance, a sheer translucent pinky shimmer. She'll be sure to look approachable with a natural glow — no scary glitter allowed.

Share your choices by bookmarking items from around the web and tagging them with the phrase First Date Fabulous. I'll feature your favorites here next Tuesday.

Has anyone used the Costco line of mineral makeup? I don't remember it's brand name, but I've been wondering if it can compare to Bare Minerals.

OMG I agree with AmberHoney! I love BE too! I've been using it for the last year and there's so much new stuff to check out all the time. The All Over Radiance is a miracle product! I use Clear Radiance-- it gives me just enough sparkle but not over the top. And it's so good for me... yay minerals and greenness and eco-chic!

I'm not on the dating scene but just wanted to give a big call out to BE - their products are the best. Happy customer for over 10 years.
