date night makeup

date night

Getting ready for a date — whether it's your first or your 21st — is so exciting. There's even more to look forward to now that it's summer. Sundresses, colored denim, cool pastels... and, er, a wider variety of date spots. Almost forgot we were talking about dates.

Anywho, let's get on with it. Above you'll find my fave date-approved cosmetics. And an amazing pair of earrings that just seem date appropriate to me (I would pair them with a tee and jeans).

Here's my rule of thumb: Use the same products you would to get ready for a night out... and then tone them down. A fresh coat of concealer and/or foundation is essential for a clear complexion. Don't overdo it on bronzer or blush — just a hint of each for a wash of color. Mascara and a super light smokey eye are perfect for dinner or a movie. I would use this purple eyeshadow palette to create a colorful smokey eye to add more depth and dimension to my eyes.

The finishing touches? A great neutral lipstick, a spritz of perfume and a stand-out accessory! Oh, and a date ;)

  1. I know who makes those earrings and I agree that they are the perfect date (or LIFE) earrings.
