Simple Date Night Look

date_night

Even when I’m dressing up for date night, I like to choose pieces that I’m comfortable in (i.e. a dress I won’t tug at the entire night, and comfy shoes since my husband and I generally walk and take public transportation in NYC). The same goes for my makeup. I like to experiment with different looks, but I still want to look like “me” at the end of the day. I opted for a fun, natural look for my recent date night.

Foundation:
The Josie Maran Argan Matchmaker Serum Foundation is something I’ve never experienced before in makeup application. When you first pump the foundation out, you’ll notice that it’s a white cream-y texture. But, as soon as you apply it to your skin, it adjusts to match your skin tone. I’m not going to lie – I was blown away! Not only was I amazed by its chameleon-like capabilities, but I love the fact that I felt like I had no foundation on at all. It includes 100% Argan Oil, which means your skin is getting hydrated. To top it off, this foundation does not include synthetic fragrances, parabens, or sulfates.

I applied this over my entire face and neck with a foundation brush. If you don’t have a brush, your fingers are perfectly fine.

If there’s one makeup product you should invest in, it’s a good foundation.

Concealer:
Still love the rms beauty “un-cover” concealer. Can’t rave enough about it.

I dabbed some under my eye with my ring finger and that was pretty much it.

Eyeliner:
My absolute fave – Sante Eyeliner.

Simply applied some to my waterline and eyelid.

Eyeshadow:
Tarte Cosmetics Beauty & the Box Amazonian Clay Eyeshadow Quad

The packaging is beautiful and I love having basic colors like this in my makeup bag. I applied some gold eyeshadow to my eyelid and blended in the dark brown eyeshadow.

Eyebrow Shaper:
Tarte Cosmetics The Brow Architect Browshaper, Liner & Definer

It’s true what they say – Well groomed eyebrows can totally change your look. This is the first browshaper I’ve ever used, and comes with easy-to-follow instructions.

Bronzer:
Vapour Organic Beauty Solar Translucent Bronzer

I applied some to my cheekbones and blended it in.

Blush:
Kjaer Weis Blossoming Cream Blush

I purchased this for less than $5 at a beauty sale, which I was super thrilled about. The downside is that I fell in love with this blush, so now I have to brace myself when I eventually run out and have to buy a new one at full-price. Trust me, it’s worth every penny.

Lips:
Sally B’s Skin Yummies B Glossy Lip Gloss

Hair:
I didn’t have time to wash my hair, so I revived some of my strands with the Remington Styling Wand. People think curling irons are just for girls with straight hair, but curly girls can also make use of it when the hair is no longer as defined a couple days after a wash.

What’s your favorite date night look?
