Tonight is the night. You have a get-together with someone special. (Or someone not so special. Only time will tell!) That means putting on your favourite outfit and spending a little extra time in front of the mirror. That’s right. Tonight is date night! Not sure how you want to do your makeup? Take a deep breath and relax. These stunning makeup ideas will inspire your Valentine’s Day look - and help you feel like your best and most beautiful self.
Date Night Makeup: Pink and Pretty
Makeup is versatile. It is a great way to express your personality and showcase how you feel. Are you feeling fun and flirty tonight? Then opt for a makeup look that is fresh and girly. Sweep a soft pink shadow over the eyelids. Layer tons of mascara on your upper and lower lashes for a bold yet pretty look. Skip the eyeliner and focus on the cheeks instead. Grab a classic pink blush shade and dab it onto the apples of the cheeks. Finish off your date night look with a medium pink shade. Amp it up with a shimmery gloss or wear alone. This makeup look is sure to grab attention!
If there is one thing I love, it has to be neutral makeup. Before you skip past this paragraph…wait! Neutral does not mean boring, bland, or barely there. It is all about using nude shades in a bold and exciting way. Grab a smokey eye palette and apply a medium brown eyeshadow shade all over the lid. Accent it with a deeper brown or black shadow. Add on a little liner and a coat of mascara. On the cheeks, stick to a bronzed blush and finish off with a caramel lipstick shade. Sultry, gorgeous, and absolutely stunning.
Still haven’t found the right makeup look for your date? This next idea could be the one. Give your makeup look a little retro flair. Create a bold cat-eye wing (read my tutorial on how to achieve the perfect cat eye liner if you are feeling unsure) with your liquid liner and add on some false eyelashes. Here's a tip: accent lashes are great for a little extra pop without looking too over the top. Next, use a berry toned blush on the cheeks. Grab a red tinted lip balm and add in some colour on the lips. Why a tinted balm instead of a full-blown lipstick? This will keep your makeup subtle but still give you that retro look.
