Date Night Makeup


Date Night Makeup - Politics of Pretty


Powder and Blush


With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I’ve already begun planing my date night makeup, per usual. As for my outfit, that can wait until the day of. You know, priorities of a beauty blogger. Anyways, I thought I’d do a makeup test run and share it with you. On my eyes, I created a look using my Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. To be honest, when I first got this palette over the holidays, I wasn’t a big fan but after finding a few stellar YouTube tutorials for inspiration, I was able to successfully pull off a date night makeup look I really like. I started with sweeping the shade, Limit, on the crease, followed by Darkside on my lids. I layered Dust on the center of my lid to brighten the eye a little bit. Then I took Nooner and blended that in to my crease. I patted Strange under my brow and in the inner corner of my eyes for my highlight shade. Finally, I took a small precision brush and used Blackheart along my upper lash line for some definition.

You all know I love my never-ending mascara wardrobe but lately I’ve been reaching for Estee Lauder Sumptuous Infinite Daring Length and Volume Mascara. I like the glossy finish it gives my lashes. When it comes to foundation, I use my trusty NARS Cream Compact Foundation (not pictured) and I also like my Flower Pressed Powder for touch-ups. A pretty glow is always a must and this Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush  does just that (and I love the heart-shape packaging). Right now I’m really loving a pale pink lip and this Stila Lip Glaze in Strawberry Cream smells absolutely delicious. On my nails, I’m wearing a pale gray (or maybe lilac?) shade by Butter London in Muggins. Right now I am really loving their nail polish. Oh, and how cute is my kitty ring? I purchase it from Erin Fetherston’s collection for Jewelmint.
