How To Make A Confident First Impression [EXPERT]

You only get 7 seconds, so try these 6 tips!

5. Update your hair and makeup. Consult a professional makeup artist and hair stylist who you can trust to help you. Ease off on the vampire dark lipstick if you're over 40. And, open-toed shoes? Get a pedicure. 5 Sexy, Irresistible Summer Hair Trends

Daytime and nighttime makeup is not the same. White teeth say that you care about your best accessory ... your smile. Details matter. Watch out for too much perfume and cologne. You want to be remembered for your charming personality, not your scent.

6. Keep it chic. Watch out for fashion missteps. Leggings and yoga pants only belong at the gym. Dated clothes make you look old. (Yuck! Who wants that?)

In sum, take advantage of the opportunity to start off with a powerful first impression. A good first impression makes everything else you need to accomplish easier.
