12 sexy looks for date night - inspired by your favourite celebs
Everyone needs the perfect beauty look to go with their perfect outfit!
We've discussed what to wear, and you have the perfect pair of shoes to go with it. What you need now is the perfect makeup to keep your entire look together. Whether you have a date with your bae or you're going out with your social media detectives, these beauty looks will have you covered.
1. Vampy lips
Groom your brows, then paint a deep lip. Just be warned, have some makeup wipes on hand before any smooch sesh. Make sure you've covered any redness on your face because be warned, the deep color will make the redness and flaws even more prominent. Keep the rest of the look simple with just mascara or a low-key brown smokey eye. The key to this look is tons of confidence!
2. Slight glitter
Take a note from Jasmine Tookes, swap out your inner corner highlight for reflective silver glitter. The shimmery accent will take your smoky look from sultry to next-level sexy. Best worn with a nude lip or a sheer light plum one. Go easy on the highlight on the rest of the face for this one. Let's keep one place as the focus.
3. Caramel eyes
Nail it with this sultry, smoky caramel-toned eye with lots of black liners, glowing skin, and a touch of gloss on her lips. For this look, go with a very clean and prepped skin surface and use a lot of liquid illuminators under the foundation for a beautiful glow that looks totally natural. Need a look that screams date night, but isn't too much? Choose this one!
4. Purple liner
Kerry Washington's Golden Globes makeup is the perfect grown-up example of how to incorporate colorful liner into your look. A tiny bit of blush on the apples of your cheeks, skip the bronzer. Add a swipe of sheer, pink, shimmery gloss and go!
5. Khaleesi eyes
The queen knows her style — fierce. Emilia Clarke's smokey eye is a literal personification of this trait. Get her eyes with going over your entire lid with a deeply pigmented black shadow and blending out. Don't be afraid to do a wing out too, as long as you keep the lips nude. Keep the rest of the face simple with just a touch of blush.
6. Lashes and Liner
Run carbon black liner all the way around both lash lines and add an extra coat of mascara. Lashy, defined eyes — à la Olivia Palermo — make for some romantic eye contact. Pair it with lovely lush sheer lips and some nice highlighter. Avoid a sharp contour with this look and keep the eyes only one toned, like a golden shade.
7. All-over bronze beauty
The most foolproof way to look put together? Stick to the same color everywhere. Emily Ratajkowski’s copper eye, metallic nude lips, and bronzed glow (not to mention gold dress) make for one hot monochromatic look.
8. The classic red lips
Get inspired by Adriana Lima for this one, she does red lips like no other. Clear your face, with a good full coverage foundation and get swiping bright red! If you really want to go the extra mile, go with green contacts to get the Lima's eyes. As for the rest of the eye, keep it simple with multiple coats of a volumizing mascara and gold on the inner corners. If you have to, wing it a bit. That is all.
The gloss is back, ya'all! Play up your lashes, use some falsies, then swipe on a clear gloss. Totally gorg! Bronzer really brings this look together adding the much-required warmth. Swipe on some of your cheeks and temples. Don't forget a very slight blush.
10. Rock a violet lip
Who says you have to stick to either pink or red? Gigi Hadid proves that a violet lip can be just as smokin’! To get her look, pull your hair back, groom your brows but make sure they aren't too perfect, but a little feathery. Swipe one some dusky pink glitter shadow on the entire lid and use a brown shadow or pencil to define the lashes a little. Swipe on mascara and get working the purple lip. Easy breezy!
11. Metallic liner and a tawny lip
Give your eyelids a break and bring attention down under (to your bottom lash line, that is). Run metallic shadow under your lower lashes, then blend it out. A copper tone is great for irrespective of the color of your eyes. Don't forget mascara on the lower lashes for this one, but be careful so you don't clump it up and end up looking spidery. For soft, daytime smoke like Soo Joo Park and you're so good to go!
12. Sage smokey eye and shimmer lip
Rihanna knows that a smoky eye can be any color you want. In this case, the metallic sage tones she went with are so flattering, they’re basically neutral. RiRi's eyes also have a slight lining down under the lid with some dark grey/black liner. Use a nice amount of illuminator for this look. Add blush and you're no less than the goddess herself!
