Question: What are some date night makeup ideas?
Answer: When planning your date makeup, it’s important to consider the impression you want to give off, and unlike Beyoncé, not all of us wake up looking flawless. Date night makeup can be tricky because every woman wants to look naturally, effortlessly stunning. To keep it simple yet elegant, consider focusing on accentuating your most flattering features while keeping the rest of your look polished and minimal.
Whether you opt for a sexy smokey eye or vibrant, glowing skin, it’s important to begin with a fresh face. Start by rinsing your face and applying primer. This will help your makeup stay vibrant all night long, even if you get nervous and start to sweat (be honest ladies, it happens to the best of us). Next, blend your favorite foundation into the skin thoroughly. The last thing you want is to look like you’re wearing layers and layers of makeup. Use a shimmery white highlighter on top of your cheekbones, underneath the eyebrows and at the cupid’s bow of the lips – it’ll make your skin look like it’s glowing from within. A wash of sheer pink blush (such as tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Wear in Dollface), will give you that perfect flirty flush.
Every dating guru says the eyes are the window to the soul – if you want to highlight those gorgeous eyes, use a range of medium to dark eye shadows to create a sultry smokey look. Line the eyes with a black gel liner and don’t forget a few coats of black mascara! Finish this look with a lip stain in a subtle color. Let your eyes speak.
If you’d rather focus on that glowing skin of yours, buff a bit of bronzer under the cheekbones and up the temples in a C shape. Get that high cheek bone look by sucking in your lips, (and yes, making a fish face) for perfect application. A pretty berry lip color will complete this date night look.
No matter what look you decide to rock, remember to use long wear/waterproof products. Primers and finishing powders, like Makeup Forever HD Microfinish, will ensure your makeup stays on for hours and hours.
