My go-to makeup for a date is always a darker eye and nude lip. If I’m out eating and/or drinking I want a lipstick that is going to subtly fade throughout the night and a red lipstick while pretty isn’t going to do that. So, I thought I would share with you my top picks when it comes to date night makeup:
This is my all-time favourite contour kit! It takes a bit more time to apply than powder but it’s long lasting, making it a perfect date-night choice. I don’t tend to wear this one on a daily basis as much any more, but I do like breaking it out every now and then for a night out! The pigmentation is great and the creams blend out really well to give me a more sculpted look!
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in “Gubby”
This has been my go-to lipstick in the last little while. The frosted light pink shade goes perfectly with a smoky eye and I love the frosted finish. It’s a nice break from matte lipsticks and I think it adds a feminine vibe to my look as well. The formula is long lasting considering it’s metalized and is very comfortable to wear too!
This is my go-to foundation for a night out. It offers incredible coverage that is super long lasting. This foundation hides any imperfections I have to give my skin a flawless look and a healthy glow. This is the one foundation I always make sure to have on hand.
This double ended liner is great! On one end you have a liquid liner and on the other a gel pencil. Both formulas are easy to apply and very pigmented. Since I like to rock a bolder eye look most often I need an intensely black liner, and this one is perfect!
Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter and Glow Liquid Eye Shadows in “Smoky Storm” and “Molten Midnight”*
These long-wearing glitter eye shadows are absolutely beautiful! They give the lids and intense burst of glitter that is perfect for a night out! They are easy to apply and once they dry down you don’t have to worry about sparkles all over your face! They look like they take a long time to apply but are quite the opposite. These shadows definitely bring the wow factor to any makeup look!
Esqido Unisyn™ False Lashes in “Smoke & Fire”
These false lashes bring the drama and are perfect for a date night! The handcrafted lashes are made of ultra-fine synthetic fibres and a soft cotton band for a weightless feel as you wear them. This is great for me as I don’t like my eyes to be weighed down by heavy/uncomfortable lashes! While dramatic, these lashes still look natural and are easy to apply. They feel secure once they’re on and can be used multiple times! Esqido makes the best false lashes in my opinion and worth treating yourself to!
I also make sure to use the Esqido Lash Glue as well. The latex-free formula is gentle but still keeps the lashes secure all day/night! It’s easy to use and doesn’t make a mess either – which is key!
L’Oreal Infallible Glow-Lock Illuminating Primer*
I’m all about glowy skin on date nights so this primer is a must for me. It is lightweight and feels very hydrating on the skin. The formula gives my skin a healthy looking glow while making my foundation look better and last longer!
Long lasting makeup is essential for me when it comes down to it, which is why I like to mist my face with this once I’m done applying my makeup. This is my favourite setting spray as it makes my makeup look just applied all night long!
