Valentines day might be over, but date nights are an all year round occasion, whether it's a simple coffee date or more romantic dinners. Regardless of the occasion or location there are a few simple pointers that I keep in mind when getting ready each night and the look in the video above is one of my favourites for easy no fuss makeup that still has something a little more special to it.
TIPS FOR DATE NIGHT MAKEUP:
KEEP IT NUDE.
If you planning on coming in to contact with your date for any reason at any point in the night then you're going to want to go for a nude lip. I've managed to get lipstick on people with a simple hug, so it's best to keep it clean and sheer. Putting more emphasis on your base and eyes to keep things looking a bit special.
LONG LASTING & LOW MAINTENANCE PRODUCTS
For any social event I like to keep things long lasting and low maintenance, but especially so when it comes to one on one occasions. Any kohl liners and base products should be long lasting with non crease formulas for eyeshadows, whilst lip products should be low maintenance and avoid obvious wearing to maximise time between application.
STICK TO YOUR COMFORT ZONE.
All of the above tips are great, but the most important thing is to stick to your comfort zone. If a red lip is what you need to feel at ease then DO IT. Ignore my nude lip pointers and make sure you feel at ease.
