Whether you’re going on a first date, or it just seems like the perfect day for a romantic evening out with your partner, many of us stress over our date night look. After all, we want to look absolutely stunning and put our best face forward. Finding the perfect date night look can be a delicate balance between looking like you spent hours getting ready to impress them but also keeping it simple enough that your makeup doesn't overpower your bright personality and witty conversation.
Fortunately, finding that balance doesn't require a team of beauty professionals. And with the right products and some tips, you can create the perfect date night look even after a stressful day at work. Here are a few easy tips to help you nail your date night makeup and put your best face forward.
Pick a Long-Lasting Matte Lipstick
Who doesn’t love rocking a bold lip? For a look with staying power, pick out a kiss-proof matte lipstick in a bold shade that will stay put throughout the night. With a long-lasting lipstick, you can worry less about any smudges or smearing that will send you to the mirror every five minutes, and you can instead enjoy the moment with your date, confident that you’re simply stunning.
Use a CC Cream
It can be easy to get carried away with contouring and foundation, but if you layer it on too thick, you could lose that “no-fuss” look you’re going after. Instead, use a color-correcting cream that will blur and diffuse any skin imperfections for an authentic and flattering glow.
Go Big on Lashes
It’s never a bad idea to put a bit of extra effort into your lashes to help define them and make your eyes pop. Add a couple of layers of your favorite mascara, being sure to use a formula that lengthens your lashes without clumping or smearing. And, if you're feeling really bold, consider adding faux lashes to your date night look.
Showcase Your Best Features
If you’re going on a first date, you likely want your date to see you for who you truly are. Along with not holding back on your witty sense of humor, put the attention on the defining features of your face. For example, liquid lipstick is great for easily defining your lips with a bold shade that complements your overall look. Also, it’s super quick to apply and with a quality formula only one coat will be needed to get the job done.
