How to Get Ready for a Movie Night With Your Boyfriend

A laid-back, naturally pretty look is much more appropriate and comfortable for a relaxing night of snuggling and movie-watching! So, when you're ready, see Step 1 below for some helpful ideas on how to get ready for a movie night with your boyfriend.

    Shower and wash/condition your hair. Use an exfoliating body wash to get smooth skin (you want to be ready to cuddle) and shave.

    As soon as you step out of the shower, slather a rich lotion on damp skin, than spritz yourself with perfume (this will give you a subtle, long-lasting scent). Gently pat yourself dry.

    Wear your hair down and loose, either natural or straightened-something you aren't afraid to get a little messed up, but is still pretty. DON'T wear a lot of hairspray or do a super elaborate style you have to keep adjusting.

    When doing your makeup, remember that you are staying in. Even out your skin, define your eyes with mascara, add a subtle blush to your cheeks and soften your lips--but go easy on eyeliner, eyeshadow, lipstick, etc. If you must use these items, use them sparingly. We are going for NATURALLY pretty here.

    Choose a cute but casual outfit. Jeans are good, and choose a top that is soft to the touch and easy to lay down in. T-shirts are usually fine!

    Make sure you have breath mints or gum on hand.

Tips

  • When picking a perfume, choose something you know your boyfriend likes. Now is not the time to try out your new, exotic scent. You want to smell like you! If this is an early date, you can't go wrong with something simple and sweet, like vanilla. Just remember not to over apply!
  • Don't overdo yourself to impress him. He obviously likes you for who you are already so be casual with him. Guys really like when they can be with a true girl.
