The Boyfriend and I thought we'd make good use of the long weekend and head out for date night. We just went out for dinner and drinks. So I thought I'd share with you my date night makeup picks! I wanted to go for a real glowly bronze-y look. Nothing too far from my everyday makeup...
Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue | £26
I've been loving this stuff lately! This is a tinted moisturiser hybrid kind of thing that gives the most amazing radiant glow to the skin. This is ideal for a date night because the coverage is a good medium coverage, yet the formula is so lightweight! Once its blended in it looks so natural.
LA Girl Pro Concealer | £4.99
Obviously dark circles are a no no. So I reached for this to conceal them. This is one the best concealers I've used for hiding dark circles! It doesn't crease, move or crack - its just brilliant! I have the shade yellow, which I find better for concealing my dark circles than Salmon tones.
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer | £22.50
NARS was my highlighting concealer of choice. Another concealer that I love. Its creamy and has good coverage, doesn't crease and highlights the area with out being to over the top!
Hourglass Ambiant Light Palette | £59
To set everything in place and give my skin some more added glow I used my trusty Hourglass palette. I used Dim Light all over my face, Incandescent Light (the middle shade) down the centre of my face and across the tops of cheek bones. And then Radiant Light (the Bronzy shade) round the edges of my face and on my cheeks to give a bronzy glowy look. If you're looking for a cheaper alternative for this palette see Hourglass vs Makeup Revolution Here.
Loreal Infallible Sculpt Blush | £7.99
To Further enhance the bronze look I was going for, this blush in the shade Nude Beige was perfect! Its a lovely bronze nude colour, that looks stunning on the cheeks. The formula is finely milled, easy to blend and lasts all day / night.
Seek Soltice Palette | £9.99
This palette is so beautiful. And the highlights inside are insane for adding a beautiful glow to any look. I used the more orangey shade to highlight my cheek bones. This shade in particular adds a Stunning, almost wet look to the skin. It doesn't have any glitter in it - it just leaves behind a gorgoues shimmer. See my full review and swatches of this here.
Makeup Geek Contour Pan | £7.95
I wanted a razor sharp contour and these contour pans from makeup geek are just as good as their shadows. Buttery soft, easy to blended, well pigmented and last so well on the skin. I have the shade Half Hearted which suits my skin tone well.
Makeup Geek Shadow Pans | £4.95
I went for a rose gold toned eye. I took Creme Brulee (a warm toned light matte brown) though the crease as a transition shade. Then I used Coco Bear (a warm reddish brown) to darken up the crease and outer V and finally I used Cosmopolitan (a shimmery Rose gold colour) all over the lid. I can't rate Makeup Geek shadow enough. They are everything you would want from a high end shadow and a small price! For swatches see this post.
Rimmel Exaggerate Liquid Eyeliner | £5.95
I rarely go without a winged liner and a date night is no exception. To be honest this eye liner is ok. Its black and doesn't flake or smudge - but I wasn't wowed by it.
Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara | £7.99
To complete the eye look a good coats of my favourite mascara. This Mascara is just the best! It lengthening, volumising and holds the curl all night! I won't bang on about this too much because it featured in quite a few posts. But if you haven't tried this already you NEED to!
NYX liquid Suede Liquid Lipstick | £6.50
For lips I wanted some colour but one that wasn't to high maintenance, with eating and all. And this liquid lipstick was perfect. The staying power is crazy good! I think I only needed to touch this up twice. Which is impressive considering I was eating and drinking all night. It did't smudge round my face either. The shade Softly spoken is a beautiful, dusty rose colour with brown undertones.
So thats my date night makeup look. Have tried any these? What are favourite products for a date night?
Until Next time...
