We have collected some useful tips to use cruelty free makeup and flaunt that flawless look on your date night.
Pick the Right Dress
Take your time in picking the right dress for your date night. The venue will help you in deciding what to wear. The best advice that we can give to you is to try your dress way ahead of the day, pair it with shoes and accessories, so you know what the final look will be. Never wear something that you are not comfortable in because you don't want to lose the charm of the night by worrying about anything. Don't shy away from grabbing a stunning dress from your closet that you have already worn to any occasion if you are comfortable in it. You do not have to buy a new dress.
Prep, Prep and Prep
Have you been in the situation when a button of your dress fell off, or you can't find your shoe or had last minutes make up mess up that need to be fixed? That is why it is always better to start preparing early so you can deal with any last-minute mishaps. If you want to get a facial, get a few days before the date to avoid breakthroughs or deal with any allergic reactions in time. Take a relaxing bath with a little Epsom salt to detoxify your body. Shave, cleanse, moisturize and make your skin look flawless. A mini manicure and pedicure are a must to make your hands and feet soft and smooth. Choose some subtly scented shower gel and moisturizing lotion/oils to leave a lasting fragrance.
Even before your prime, pluck! Before you begin your make up, make sure you have all the products as per your skin type. If you base oxidizes, pick a lighter shade, so it does not give you a dark complexion. Always conceal with a darker shade, so it does not grey they skin and perfect hides your dark circles or blemishes.
Start with priming your skin. It will create a barrier between your skin and make-up. It has two advantages. Firstly, it will not let you make up damage your skin. Secondly, it creates a wall between skin and make-up and helps to protect your make up from any excess oil in your skins, making it last longer with a smooth finish.
After you have primed your skin, begin your eye make-up. Always keep the occasion in mind. Begin with concealing the dark circles and then decide the eye make- up look you want to achieve. If it's a day out-door date, go for soft make-up. If you are going out at night, flaunt those smokey eyes and glossy lips. Delicately apply the eyeliner to give a definition to your eyes. For extra drama, you can wear eyelashes which will enhance the overall look of your make up 100xtimes. Finish it with mascara. Do not forget to fill in your brows to complete the look. Using Eco Tools Daily Defined Eyes Kit can help you master that Smokey eye or any other sweet makeup trick your planning on using to know the socks off your date!
After priming your face, apply a good quality base is a key to create a flawless make-up look. Always choose the foundation according to your skin type. You do not want your face to look cakey, dry, patchy or oily. You should always aim for a soft, smooth and dewy look. Blend it well, especially in the areas where it tends to crease such as the forehead, corner of the eyes and laugh lines. After you have completed the application of foundation, set it with a translucent setting powder, so it doesn't alter the tone of your foundation. Finish the look with a setting spray. Using an RT complexion sponge can create a flawless look that will be jaw dropping!
Cheeks and Lips
Apply a soft blush on to enhance your cheekbones. Contour your jawline and nose if required but make sure you blend in the contouring lines well. Use a lip pencil to create a perfect shape for your lips and add a lip colour to create those plump lips we all love!
Once you are done with your make-up, it's time to create a hairstyle that compliments your make up and outfit to create a flawless look for your date. The key is to look like you and not someone else. We recommend you avoid very high volume up-dos or formal hairstyle but instead go for a soft wavy look or a beautiful blow-out to create a natural yet look without overdoing it. You can add in a few cute accessories to give you a bubbly look that compliments your personality. Use some Finesse Ultra Hold Hairspray to keep your look fresh and held together all night long!
No look is complete without some dazzling accessories. A nice delicate pendant with matching earrings and a delicate bracelet or a watch will enhance the overall look. The focus should be you, so do not opt for heavy accessories which distract your partner. Keep it simple yet graceful.
A lovely matching handbag is every girl's best friend. Choose an appropriately sized handbag in which you can carry your cellphone, wallet, lip colour, pocket mirror, tissue paper and breath freshener. Your smile is the most beautiful accessory you can wear! Whiten it with natural white five minute whitening you can find in many retailers!
We cannot stress enough on the fact that a nice fragrance can make or break the deal. A single perfume or cologne is not enough. Light up some softly scented candles in your room. Apply a body lotion with lasting fragrance. Use a mist to complement the scent and finish off with a cologne or perfume. Do not forget to spray behind your knees, torso, back of your neck and ears and wrists. This way, your perfume will last longer, and you will feel fresh and beautiful all day long. You can also spray a little bit of perfume on your hairbrush and comb through your hair to leave a beautiful scent in your hair. Who doesn’t love playing with hair that smell oh so nice! Finally, spray some perfume in the air and walk through it like a princess. But remember there is no need to overdo it. Overwhelming fragrances tend to create a negative impact rather than a positive one.
We cannot stress the impact of the right kind of shoes. You need to choose something that is not only fashionable, complements your outfit but also comfortable. There isn't a worse sight than a woman wearing high heels and unable to carry them. Do not opt for shoes that you cannot carry gracefully. Have ample time at your hands to explore your options according to your outfit, venue and overlook that you want to achieve. You cannot achieve a flawless look on your date without the right pair of sexy heels.
