First Date Makeup Look

6:46:00 PM

Hey ladies, just one more day and it's Valentine's Day.  I realized that I haven't created any makeup look for a really long time. (sigh) Since hearts day is coming, I just thought that this soft neutral look would be perfect for a date.

Before I chose to do this makeup, I thought "What kind of makeup look would I prefer to wear for a date with Hubby?" The answer is a no-brainer. I only wanted a simple and natural look with a healthy dewy finish.


Products Used

for the face
Clarins Beauty Flash Balm (makeup base)
Maybelline Mineral Power Liquid Foundation in Natural Beige
Majolica Majorca Skin Remaker Pore Cover Foundation (setting powder)
Mac Powder Blush in Harmony (contour powder)
The Balm Mary Lou Manizer (highlight powder)

for the eyes
The Face Shop Style My Brows Eyebrow Pencil in no.3
Covergirl Single Eyeshadow in Mink (all over my lids)
Milani Single Eyeshadow in Java Bean (outer corner of my lids and lower lash line)
Styli Style 24hr Liquid Eyeliner in Blackest Black
Covergirl Lash Blast Volume Waterproof Mascara in Very Black (upper and lower lashes)
for the lips
Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipstick in Fervor (all over my lips)
Mac Lipglass in Lovechild (on the center part of my lips)

The Finished Soft Neutral Look

There are already a lot of Valentine's Day makeup tutorials available online but only few were simple and soft. Which is why I decided to make this quick look for you ladies. (chos!)
I did not want to overly define my brows and just wanted to make my face look alive and less tired. Keep in mind that most men don't want ladies with too much makeup on. (I've read it somewhere hehe) So, I would definitely recommend a Soft Neutral Look for first dates. ^_^

I hope this helps.

Until next time.

  4. just followed you--it's nice to see contouring on someone with a face similar to mine! it's so hard for me to follow contouring when the girls already have ultra angular faces with high cheekbones and perfectly sharp bone structures. i'll have to catch up on some of your posts.
