Here’s the perfect drugstore makeup tutorial for your next date!
Sometimes a girl’s gotta get all dolled up and go on a date with a gorgeous man. As a newly single gal (wahoo!), I’ve been experimenting with a few date night looks. First dates are a horribly awkward, totally tantalizing experience. Both parties are (admittedly or not) nervous, as first impressions are so crucial to an initial connection. Ladies have no fear! If I can do it – so can you. Today I’m sharing not one but two first-date-appropriate hairstyles, as well as a makeup, look! If you have an upcoming date, make sure to bookmark this page for later!
Date Night Makeup
A rule of thumb for makeup on first dates is –
don’t overdo it, less is more, red lips is best, wear what makes you feel beautiful. Want to go all out and rock red lips? You go, girl! Want to show off your cute freckles and skip the foundation? Work it! Don’t want to wear makeup at all? You do you, babe. I’m sick and tired of being told what makeup appeals to men on first dates. Don’t wear makeup for a man. Wear makeup for yourself. Flaunt it. Own it.
With that being said, this is my version of a date night look. Adopt it or not – at the least I hope you are introduced to one or two new makeup products!
To create this look, I first applied full coverage makeup and foundation to even out my skin tone. Next, I filled in my brows with a brow pencil and brushed them out with a spoolie tool to create a more subtle look. To create definition, I used my new favorite contour palette aka The Pixi Book of Beauty. Do yourself a favor and pick up this palette ASAP. This palette includes 3 highlighters and 3 contours that contain silky, micro-milled powders and make blending a dream! To add a bit of color to my cheeks I used the Pixi By Petra Beauty Blush Duo for a light-diffusing effect. To create a winged liner, I used Pixi By Petra Cat Eye Ink, which is actually a great liner! I am a liquid eyeliner snob, however, this one definitely makes the cut with a highly pigmented formula. After applying my favorite mascara, I finished off the look with Pixi Tinted Brilliance Balm in Baby Bare for a pop of color! See below for the finished look!
I hope you enjoyed this date night look! Let me know what your go-to date night look is in the comments below!
