I feel like I talk about going out on dates a lot… but I guess that’s what happens when you’re single and dating, right? I’m just going to go with it. Either way, I think we can all agree that getting ready for a date is one of the most nerve racking things we can do! Maybe it’s just me but I want everything to be perfect, especially if I’m going out on a first date, because I want to give off a great first impression.
My go-to date night look is pretty standard: smoky eye, nude lips, and a subtle cheek color. I know this is a popular combination but I can’t help it! You all know that I love me a bold smoky eye. Let’s just hope I don’t make dorky faces like the one above, haha.
To create this look I used my Revlon Photoready Insta-Fix, Photoready Prime + Antishine Balm, cream blush, Colorstay Liquid Liner, Colorstay liner (on the bottom lashes), and a green cream shadow from one of the new Photoready Eye Art duos. I never, ever wear color on my lids for some reason but I am really enjoying it this time around! This emerald green is absolutely stunning and isn’t too overpowering for a non-color wearer like myself.
I’m OBSESSED with my lip color and it is a winning combination of two of the new Revlon Ultra HD Lipstick and Ultra HD Lip Lacquer. I started with a base of Ultra HD Lipstick in “Camilla” and then topped it with a coat of Ultra HD Lip Lacquer in Smoky Topaz for the perfect nude lip. Check out my video at the end of this post for swatches and my in-depth thoughts. Spoiler alert: I’m obsessed! I mean, it’s not hard to be obsessed with a lipstick that has a wax-free formula that glides on like butter, am I right? This video here pretty much sums it all up.
Speaking of videos, check out mine below to learn more about these Ultra HD lip products and what I consider to be date night essentials!
Not only are these products awesome but you want to know what else is great about them? They’re all so affordable and can be found at your local Walgreens (or Duane Reade if you’re in NYC like me)!
