When Hubby and I were younger we used to love going on date nights but nowadays we only tend to do them once or twice a month. Who needs to go out when you stay home with Dominos and Netflix? Date nights are when I like to really make an effort with my makeup and I love having the extra time to actually sit down and apply itI have a signature look that I always do for a night out and today I thought I would share it with you!
I love using my Primark Primer Water for a date night because it's really hydrating and it helps my makeup last all day. I like my base to look flawless but natural and the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation is perfect for this. For blemishes and dark circles I've been loving the Seventeen Stay Time Concealer because it covers everything without being cakey or heavy on the skin. Then I set my face with powder and move onto the cheeks. The Clinique Cheek Pop in Ginger Pop is usually my blusher of choice as it gives me a gorgeous natural flush without being over the top. Of course, my look wouldn't be complete without a shed load of highlighter and I've recently re-discovered my Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder which I'm obsessed with!

The Zoeva Cocoa Blend Eyeshadow Palette is perfect for creating a warm-toned smokey eye and it's what I use 99% of the time. I'll mix Substitute For Love and Freshly Toasted in the crease and on my lower lashline to add some warmth and definition and then I apply Subtle Blend to the lid for a nice pop. I also like to put some L'Oreal Infallible Gel Crayon in Black on my waterline for some extra drama. Then it's just a few coats of mascara, a bit of brow pomade and I'm done!

I prefer using matte lipstick on a date night as it means I don't have to keep touching up every 5 minutes. First I use my MAC Lip Pencil in Boldly Bare to add some shape and then I apply the Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipstick in Velvet Beige over top. It's such a good combo!

Do you use any of these products on a date night?
