You can picture it now: the guy you’ve been making eyes out for a week has finally asked you out to dinner, you’ve found the perfect outfit, and you’re in the bathroom staring at the mirror with absolutely no idea what makeup look to go for. Don’t sweat it, because we’ve put together some of the best date night looks that are fool proof and guaranteed to leave him drooling at the table.
It’s important to remember that the most crucial part of any date night look is to keep your skin healthy and well moisturized. A soft, touchable face is crucial to your self-confidence, and glowing skin is appealing to everyone. Using a daily moisturizer like our Evening SeneDerm Moisturizer is an easy way to make sure your skin stays healthy and smooth every day. A good base is the best way to let your makeup shine all night without looking heavy.
It’s a common misconception that you should go with a dark, smokey look to create the perfect date night look. Less is sometimes more for a date night look. A tinted moisturizer with a light dusting of one of our signature BlushSenses and some mascara can show that you’re down to earth and classic. Going with a fresh-faced look is the new bold move in the dating world, as it defies traditional conventions. When doing this look, make sure you keep your palette neutral to retain the natural look that shows your date all that natural beauty.
Preferring a sultrier makeup look isn’t a bad thing, and can show that you’re no-nonsense up front. Typically, going for a darker eye or a strong lipstick shade like a purple-toned LipSense indicates that you are a confident, strong woman who isn’t afraid to show who she is to the world. Your date will appreciate that you know what you like and aren’t scared to go for it.
If it’s not a first date and you’re going out with your long-term beau, there’s no reason you can’t knock him on his feet. Being in a long-term relationship can sometimes lead to a comfort zone of no makeup and sweatpants, so going the extra mile with some lash-lengthening mascara and a smoky eye will be appreciated when it comes time for your weekly night out.
No matter what look you go for, the best thing you can wear on your face is confidence. Never be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and try something new, especially during times that you want to look your best.
