For years, I’ve spent date nights with that special someone, and making beautiful date night makeup looks for the occasion is always a great way to feel your best and express yourself. While the best beauty tip we can give is to wear makeup that makes you feel good and confident, there are a few ways you can absolutely amp up your makeup look for date night to make the occasion unique.
Softly sculpted cheekbones, luminous skin, and a hint of winged eyeliner are a great way to apply date night makeup, especially if you’re dressing up for the event and want your makeup to seem sophisticated and polished. The brushed-up brows and light lip colour are our favourites.
Pop of Pink
When it comes to date-night makeup, there are no restrictions, which is why a strong lip is at the top of the list of ways to express yourself. This tempting shade of pink enhances the complexion and looks great in any season. To complete the look, apply a few coats of mascara and a sheer blush to the apples of the cheekbones.
Touch of Green
For date night, take a gamble and wear a bright eyeliner or shadow that stands out from the crowd. If you’re into colour, this bright green abstract eyeliner coupled with a contrasting shadow and glossy, shine lips is the way to go. Have fun generating your own lines and forms, the more abstract the better. Try this liquid eyeshadow from ShadowSense for a hint of green—it may be used to make subtle or dramatic accents.
Make It Metallic
On date night, a smoky, metallic eyeshadow is one way to make a statement. We adore the contrast between the shadow textures and the way the metallic finish gleams in various light sources. Whether you’re going on a daytime expedition or a twilight dinner, one thing is for sure: your makeup will be impeccable.
It’s the Glow for Us
For date night, the softness of glowing skin coupled with a delicate, smokey eye is great (or any night, for that matter). The hues of the shadow, lips and blush combine well to create a romantic makeup look that could easily become your go-to look for date night. Use a deep-coloured cream eyeshadow as a base colour, like this long-wear cream eyeshadow stick, to simply create smokey eyes.
