Although I like to stay comfortable and stick to my usual everyday makeup routine whenever I can, I try and make an effort on date nights to trial new products and try out new looks. This season I have reached for products that help me achieve fresh, dewy skin and a strong copper smokey eye, so today I am sharing with you those products.
If I'm not using my L'Oreal Lumi Magique Foundation, I like to mix a bit of the Sleek's Bare Kissed Illuminator in Monaco* in with my base of choice to achieve a subtle yet glowy complexion. This versitle liquid illuminator can be used under or over your base, but I prefer to mix it so that it can transform matte BB creams or foundations into skin illuminating formulas.
During the Summer months I tend to opt for cream formulas and dewy finishes, but I have been reaching for the H&M Golden Peach Powder Blush more and more lately. It has a soft coral hue that compliments my skin tone and adds a warm glow to the skin. For an added glow, I have been using the Sleek Solstice Palette; a versatile quad that can used to emphasis on my contour, highlight my cupids bow and illuminate the inner corner of my eyes to create an overall brightened complexion.
For eyes, I have rekindled the love for my Zoeva Rose Golden Palette* especially paired with the MAC Tan Pigment. These two create a soft, complimentary eye look that looks well put together throughout the night. Eyelashes aren't a must have on a date night, but they can help to finish off your eye makeup. My current eyelash obsession is Red Cherry Lashes*. I use the Demi Wispies if I want a more dramatic, yet sultry look and Delilah if I just want to add subtle definition and volume. I currently get them from FalseEyelashes.co.uk, if you thought Red Cherry Lashes were hard to get hold of in the UK.
I usually reach for a statement lip on a date night, but I have been opting for a nude option recently, one that will last the whole night. The NYX Lip Lingerie's have a weightless matte finish and long lasting wear that can be re-applied without flaking.
What are you go-to date night products?
