Nothing is more important than the makeup you chose to wear a date night, right?
I was kindly offered a few makeup products to pick out from Chemist.co.uk to put together the perfect date night makeup look featuring some big brands like Bourjois and Ardell.
I think the first essential to any makeup look is a good primer. You want to make sure your foundation stays all day, or night, long without the worry of it creasing or coming off. From Chemist.co.uk I picked out the Bourjois Blur The Lines primer, retailing at £8.99. I own one primer which I do love but struggle to find ones that don’t feel oily like the Benefit Porefessional does. This comes in a little pot and feels really smooth on the skin, but not oily. It makes your skin feel so soft without that typical oil feel.
I’d never go on a date without lip balm or a lipgloss. I find liquid lipsticks quite uncomfortable on my lips and if I wore lipstick I’d be worried about touching it up throughout the date. My go-to lip balm is Carmex which I own in the cherry flavour and the original. I did decide to pick out the strawberry flavoured one because I’ve not actually tried that one, safe to say it smells amazing. For the lipgloss, I decided on the Max Factor Colour Elixir Lip Gloss in a really pretty pristine nude (no. 10). It’s a super sheer, glossy nude and isn’t uncomfortable on the lips. If I could rock a red lip on a date then I’d never play it safe with a gloss.
For me, a staple everyday makeup look involves eyeshadow so of course, a date night look would also include eyeshadow. I was gifted the Ardell Matte Eyeshadow Palette which costs £8.99 and has 12 perfect matte shades. I’m a shimmer eyeshadow kind of girl which explains which I had near enough no matte palette’s in my makeup collection. I thought that this palette would be perfect to create an eye look that wasn’t too out there and something quite simple.
The final thing I was gifted was the Manicure Eyelash Curlers with a soft grip. Eyelash curlers are perfect for getting lashes to look a little more dainty and I find they do a great job at lifting my lashes. Especially for a date I know i’d want my lashes to look cute and as long as possible because I find that to be such a good feature and to make the look complete!
The final look for my date night inspired makeup included the top row of the eyeshadow palette with a gorgeous light gold shimmer shade from a Colorpop palette along with the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara and the Benefit Bad Gal Bang. I also used the lipgloss which gives a really sheer pretty glossy look and underneath my foundation, I used the Bourjois Primer which actually felt so nice!
What kind of products do you rely on for a date night? I’d love to know!
