Date night makeup tutorial x 3

Date night makeup can and should be anything that makes you feel sexy and good. I think a full glam look with a smokey eye is an awesome choice for a date, but it’s not everyone’s cup of tea. I wanted to challenge myself a bit when it comes to my typical date look, so I created three date looks that have a bit of pink or red in them. You know, with Valentine’s Day around the corner and all that.

 

Date night makeup looks

From dark plum to soft pink, here are my date looks with tutorials!

Tip: when you want the colors to really compliment you, choose either warm or cool tones depending on your undertone. Cool tones for cool undertones and warmer tones for warm undertones. You can also pair cool and warm colors together to balance the look a bit. I, for example, tend to look better in warm tones, so I tried adding warmth to all the looks. That said, some of the cool colors still clash with my warm hair and skin a bit. But I just really wanted to focus on some cool colors for a change, because they can look amazing especially if you have cooler blonde hair or more of a neutral skin tone. And in a way, this is a personal preference. If you think a certain color looks good on you (cool or warm), go ahead and wear that.

This eye look is as simple as it gets. I used just shimmer colors all over the eye. The darkest color goes in the outer corner and lightest color in the inner corner. Waterproof mascara holds the curl and finishes the look. All done!

 

Soft natural makeup

Okay now we’re really at my comfort zone. I just really love soft, natural looks like this one. Plus I love glossy lips! Another big thing about this look is the glow. I used my favorite liquid highlight on the cheekbones to really make them pop and glow from within.

BLUSHED MAKEUP LOOK- tutorial

Blushed makeup look for all of us blush-lovers.

Have I ever told you I love blush? Just kidding, I know I have.

Since Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, I thought this blushed makeup look would is not only perfect for the occasion. This look is more on the natural side (I even skipped mascara) with a radiant base, fluffy brows and blushed eyes, cheeks and lips.

Wearing blush on your eyes might sound intimidating, but just look how nice it looks! And it’s so easy to achieve. Keep on reading for step by step photos and instructions.

Blushed makeup look tutorial

glowy base - vita liberata beauty blur mixed with foundation

Starting with the base.
For this look I wanted my base to be very radiant and light. I mixed *Vita Liberata’s beauty blur with my foundation, to sheer it out and get an overall glow to my skin. Beauty blur is an awesome product for that.

Similar glow product on Sephora:
*Charlotte Tillbury’s Hollywood Flawless Filter

After that I neutralized my dark circles with *NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in the shade Custard.
To brighten the under eye area, I added a dab of *BeautyAct Concealer, shade 01C, on top of that.

Fluffy, lifted brows go perfectly with this look. Fresh and nice! I used a strong hold hair gel and brushed them upwards. If you’re looking for a brow gel that holds the brow hairs up, *Benefit’s Brow Setter is the best. Finally I filled my brows in with a blonde brow powder (Clarins Brow Duo in Tawny Blonde).

 

Blush from cheeks to lids

Then I added blush. It’s easiest to use a cream blush, which you can just blend with your fingers.
I applied blush on top of my cheeks and all the way to my lids. My absolute favorite cream blush is Kjaer Weis Above and Beyond. Now this is optional, but I applied *Vita Liberata’s highlighter in Rose under that blush, to get a bit more pink pearly sheen to it. It wouldn’t have been quite that glowy without the highlighter under it, though the cream blush itself has some sheen to it.

*Rare beauty Stay Vulnerable Cream Blush (Nearly Rose)

How to pick the right blush color to make this look work for you?
I used a slightly warm, coral blush shade to go with my neutral yellow undertone. If you have pinkish cool undertones, I would recommend choosing a cool shade.

Finally, I added GOSH Romance lipstick to finish off the look. I also smudged the edges of the lipstick a bit with my finger to get a softer look. I’ve been doing this a lot lately, smokey and blended are not just for the eyes.

Similar lipstick:
*YSL Satin Lipstick, Nu Fatal

Sometimes as a beauty blogger I get this pressure of coming up with all these complex looks. But in reality, simplicity is beautiful. And wearable. I actually felt very beautiful in this look and couldn’t believe I hadn’t tried it before. Needless to say, I will wear this more often from now on. It even works nicely with a face mask, bringing the attention to the eyes.

Would you try this look?
