What’s your favorite date night look? Share yours!

Temptalia's AnswerI do light gold/antique golds on the lid with dramatic but not OMG! mascara and brown liner. I’ll try to do a lighter lip, too.

  1. Ahh, no date night for me until March! My husband is away on deployment. Butttttt, I usually do a purple & black smokey eye with a pinkish nude lip or a peachy-pink wash all over my lid with heavy black eyeliner and light lips.

  2. Melissa

    Foundation, lots of mascara and some blush. Sometimes winged black eyeliner and some eyeshadow, but nothing crazy. Maybe a lip color.

  3. Golden satiny brown smokey eyes (includes lengthening mascara) with rosy nude lip (My-Lips-But-Better type without gloss)

  4. Paddychat

    Black mascara, sparkling eyeshadow (nigth star Nars, diamond power Make Up For Ever or Pigment lite MAC) and, of course, red lips (Spanish red from Estée Lauder) !

    I change it up. I will definitely say that I wear a full face though. Once in a while I will just wear bronzer and no blush and maybe not eyeshadow if I wear winged liner.

  6. So much u can do but i think a natural smokey brown/slate black eye wiv big but natural lookin lashes and coral cream blush then a brown toned nude on the lips wiv a clear gloss. Very subtle classy and sophisticated.

  7. Flawless skin with some peachy blush, clean clear eyes with neat lashes and a sheer red lipstick with gold flecks in. Oh. And super neat brows. My hair is so short right now that a “neat” understated look with good brows and sexy lips with good colour look the total best on me.

  8. On date nights I like neutral eyes with black winged liner and lots of mascara, softly flushed cheeks and neutral lips. I try to enhance my natural beauty and not scare them away from the beginning.

    Fresh, moisturized skin with well concealed spots, peachy pink cheeks, MLBB lips with no gloss (because the bf hates it!) :) maybe some shimmery eyeshadow or well defined eyes if we’re going to a nice place but it’s pretty much that if we’re going out :)

  10. I love a nice smoky eye, usually with browns and coppers and I always coordinate with a nude lip!

  11. My fiance’s work schedule doesn’t really allow for us to have proper date nights right now, but when we do go out I try to do something bold and colorful since I don’t normally wear makeup to work. It usually ends up being some sort of bright smokey eye or a neutral cat-eye with crazy lips (orange-coral, red and fuchsia being my faves)

  12. Liliane

    Depends sometimes a neutral look (beige and dark green) to highlight my lashes combined with a bolder coral lip and sometimes only pink all over the lid and a dark blue winged eyeliner (sometimes smudged out) with a light pink lip.

  13. listenlikethieves

    Nothing crazy, either bare skin with winged black/brown eyeliner (Bobbi Brown “Caviar”), mascara, groomed brows and nude lips, or a soft wash of lilac and peach eye shadows, mascara, pink blush and soft pink lips. The goal is to look pretty and approachable… UNLESS I don’t want another date (and then what am I doing there?), in which case, the waxiest, most high-maintenance red lips possible. :)

    dark sexy lips with natural smokey eye shadow and cat eyeliner,with dramatic lashes of course:) i love the “natural with an edge” look,that’s for sure

  15. Michelle

    Depends on what kind of date we are going on. Dinner and movie calls for light make-up so I don’t have to worry about getting a little powder on his shoulder. For late night dancing or a sexy night out, time for a bolder eye with lashes and bronzer.

    I usually do a black and purple or black and pink sparkley smokey eye with a neutral glossy lip and contoured cheeks. My boyfriend is all about glitter for some reason, which gives me a good excuse to wear lots of sparkle without feeling like I’m regressing back to jr high.

    I usually wear a blend of MAC’s brule, satin taupe, and embark in the crease. That way I can play up my lip area more! I usually wear MAC Creme in Your Coffee lipstick with the Chestnut or Nightmoth liner (both MAC) Either way looks great, topped with the MAC Baby Sparks Dazzleglass. Raizin or Breezy Blush!!!

    For a lighter look, i usually do a flawless face with no shadow on the lid, a good amount of mascara and a deep wine colored lip, like Revlon’s Matte Wine Not (my favorite deep red), and something like Mac Warm Soul on the cheek. Sometimes maybe some black winged liner, but close to the lash line for this particular look. For the light looks on dates I like the lip to be the focus.

    When i do a darker look on date nights I want the eyes to be the focus, so I like to wear a copper/bronze smokey eye – black liner on the waterline and a thick wing on the lid, with a nude, semi-glossed lip and a sheer plum cheek.

    And I love wearing a messy bun and fringe with the light look usually with earrings to accent, and loose hair down with the darker look.

  19. Maeve

    Date Night is when I can darken things up a bit. So I usually do something with black and silver, or else a really bold neutral smokey eye. So with dark browns, grays, and blacks. I usually just wear gloss on the lips.

  20. Dana

    I usually do a soft, smokey brown or gray eye (not too dark) with either brown or gray liner and lots of mascara. Soft coral blush and a light/neutral lip

  21. TheMiaomi

    golden pink or champagne shadows with winged liner. pastel pink blush n coral lips.

  22. Ann

    I moisturize my face and lips like crazy, but the makeup stays minimal. At most, a little black eyeliner and a subtle blush. I can’t say I enjoy worrying about parts of my face rubbing off in a hug, and you can’t kiss while wearing red lipstick!
