Ahh, the ubiquitous date night. Makeup for date night, in my opinion, should be classy and understated, but should still pack a little punch. For this tutorial, I asked my gorgeous friend Lauren (from Shop Beach Darling) to be my model, since she and her husband were going on a date night of their own. I've been itching to use some glitter, so figured that would be a great way to pack a punch into this look. It's very subtle but when the light hits it... Oh girrrrl. Read on for the full tutorial!

  1. Apply a pale, shimmery champagne eyeshadow all over the lid. Then take a medium-toned matte brown eyeshadow and put it into the crease. 
  2. Apply a glitter adhesive onto the center of your lid. Then, taking a neutral glitter (I used this one by Make Up For Ever in #3), pat it over the adhesive. At this point, I also deepened the crease with a darker brown eyeshadow, and applied an ivory shimmery eyeshadow onto the inner corners of the eyes. 
  3. Next, apply your lip color. I used a really great coral shade by Rimmel. I applied the lip color instead of finishing the eyes because it helps me figure out how much more makeup I want to apply on the face before it gets to be too much, if that makes sense. It also helps me decide how much blush to apply, whether or not to apply eyeliner, etc.
  4. Then, using a gel eyeliner, I applied a cateye liner shape to the eyes. Here's a tutorial for how to do a cateye if you're unsure of how to do this.
  5. At this point, you could apply false lashes if you wanted. If not, just apply mascara.
  6. And last, I applied a shimmery bronzer as the blush color to warm up Lauren's face. That's it!

Ugh, you guys... I'm so obsessed with this glitter. I'm so sad it doesn't really come across in photography, but the effect in person is gorgeous. I truly detest glitter, but the Make Up For Ever glitter has made me reanalyze my life choices.

But I digress... what kind of makeup looks do you like to wear for date nights?
