I want a base that feels hydrated, so I start with a moisturiser and the Milk Makeup Watermelon Serum to work as a primer to prep my skin for foundation. This serum makes my Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation look great as it gives an under the makeup glow that isn't too intense, but is still noticeable. This foundation is a medium coverage that conceals all blemishes I have, but looks very natural on the skin which is perfect if you're having a date night dinner under harsh lighting.
After applying my concealer and face powder like I usually would, I head in with a bronzer. I've been using the Sleek Face Form Palette to sculpt my cheekbones and add warmth to my temples which has been working perfectly and is an affordable option too. I then apply a pop of colour in the form of the Hourglass Ambient Blusher* in Euphoric Fashion as it's the one I've picked out for the transitional period and I thought it would be very fitting for this makeup look.
For highlighter, I don't like anything too intense, so that's why I'm opting for the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter* as although I mostly use it underneath my foundation, it can be used on the tops of my cheeks for a gorgeous glow that glimmers when the light hits it.
When it comes to date night makeup I like to go smokey on the eyes and the Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Palette* is the perfect option as you can create a wide variety of looks with it. I'm going for a warm toned look including the shades Sienna, Sultry and Dusty Rose and I finish it off with a pair of fluffy corner lashes for a flattery, volumised look.
If I've gone heavy on the eyes, I don't tend to go for a strong lip, but it's hard to resist a red when on a date night and the Hourglass Icon Opaque Rouge* is so gorgeous as it's liquid lipstick formula makes it very long lasting and a very intense hue. Once I've eaten all the food, my lipstick starts to fade and I have the choice of either topping it up or turning it into a stain with a quick slick of the Glossier Coconut Balm Dot Com.
