Before you apply your makeup for date night, wash your face to get rid of the oils and dirt that have built up during the day. Having a clean canvas will ensure a better makeup application.

Date Night Beauty

When deciding what kind of date night beauty look you want to go for, it’s important to know where you’re going and how you want to feel. If it’s a casual date, then something more natural and light is appropriate. If you are going somewhere a little fancier and you want to feel sexy, then something more bold and dramatic is best. If you’re going somewhere in between, then you can go for beautiful! The great thing about beauty is you get to decide how you want to look and feel. And feeling confident is the best kind of beauty!

Natural Date Night Look

If you want to go for a subtle and natural makeup look for date night, that’s great! Here are some essentials to include in your makeup routine:

Foundation- a light layer of foundation will help even out your skin tone.

Contour- since you don’t want to go for drama, use a lighter contour. This will still give your cheekbones and forehead dimension, but it will be more subtle.

Blush- opt for a subtle blush to give your cheeks a natural flush.

Mascara- this is the best way to define your lashes and help you look feminine!

Lips- choose a natural looking lip color or gloss to top your look off.

Dramatic Date Night Look

If you want to go bold, then here are some tips that will help you stand out! Here’s a rule of thumb though, if you want to have bold eyes, stick to a natural lip. If you want a bold lip, then go for a more subtle eye. You don’t want parts of your face competing with each other.

Foundation- start with an even skin tone and a blank canvas.

Contour- this is your best friend! Get those cheekbones to pop!

Blush- apply a pretty shade that will add a flush to your face.

Bronzer- give your face a sun-kissed glow with bronzer.

Illuminator- add a goddess-like shimmer to the tops of your cheekbones and bow of your lip!

Eyeshadow- whether you choose subtle or dramatic, add eyeshadow to make your eyes pop.

Mascara- opt for mascara or falsies to really play your eyes up!

Lips- bold or natural? That is the question! Either way, your lips will top your look off.
