Remember how I said I plan my makeup? Well sad as it may be to admit it, I was not kidding! I have a first date tonight and after much research into first date makeup looks I've taken advice from the Queen, Lisa Eldridge and pulled some items to recreate the look!
If you follow me on Twitter than you may have heard that I did an
I plan to keep brows extremely natural just using a very small amount of my Chanel Brow Pencil in Brun Cendre to fill in a few gaps, and Anastasia Clear Brow Gel to keep the hairs in place. For the rest of the skin, my research informed me that cream products are the way to go since they blend easily into the skin and create a natural glow. I like the Le Metier de Beaute Creme Fresh Tint in Poppy for a bright pink cheek, and the Giorgio Armani Sheer Blush in Number 5 to help tone down the color. The Edward Bess All Over Seduction in Sunlight is a gorgeous cream highlight that you can tell I adore!
The second most important part of a first date look is the eyes! I plan to keep define them with my Chanel Quad in Prelude, and I can't live without my Bobbi Brown Gel Liner in Black Ink for my upper lash line. The Chanel Waterproof Liner in Ebene is my trusty tool for the waterline as I know it doesn't budge! My favorite mascara is Armani Eyes To Kill, and I don't know how I lived without the Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara because it is the only mascara I can use on my lower lashes that doesn't smudge.
The lips are kept simple, with the Chanel Lip Liner in Natural followed by Guerlain Rouge G Lipstick in Rose Piquant. Interestingly, I had this Guerlain lipstick on my Blog Sale and after it didn't sell I took another look at it and thank goodness I have this baby! This is the perfect date night lipstick because it is moisturizing and comfortable to wear, the color is sheer but noticeable, and it is easy to apply without a mirror and without a mess!

It's a good thing the men don't know how many products it takes to create the natural look! I hope you guys enjoyed reading this type of post and it inspires you to create some date looks to share with us! I am getting a bit tired of product reviews at the moment and I know I mentioned many products I haven't talked about in depth on this blog, but I will get to them soon! In the meantime I think you get a sense of what I like since I am trusting these items for an important night! Wish me luck!
