The Perfect Last-Minute Date Night Look For Valentine's Day

Natasha Patel , 12 Feb 2019

For some Valentine’s Day is as good of a celebration as Christmas. While for others, it’s just a regular day of the week—with the added bonus of a few presents, cuddles and flowers. Although the month of love isn’t something to be taken as seriously as dressing up a Christmas tree, it does need some special attention. So while you and bae plan that romantic dinner date on Thursday just know that you don’t need to go all out. A cute LBD can be a sure shot win. But if you’d like to wear your V-day heart on your… face? Then we have the perfect beauty look for you!

Taking inspo from the one and only Priyanka Chopra, we’re going to breakdown the essentials you’d need to complete this look.

As always, start off with your regular base, foundation and concealer (you can skip the primer for this one). PC’s look is all about the eyes and lips. Although her eye makeup is a little on the minimal side so that her lips pop out the most.

For the eyes:

Eyeshadows

  1. Using a brown or a taupe shadow on the crease will give you eyes depth and dimension. So make sure to follow through with this step and don’t go above the brow bone. But do bring the shadow and colour to the outer corner of the eye to elongate it.
  2. Taking a little shimmer shadow on your ring finger, gently apply the pigment to the lids. Start applying it from the inner corners till the centre of the lid.  You can dab the excess on your finger to the outer corner as well.
  3. No need for eyeliner (’cause, hello! It can add on time). Just use some mascara and your eyes will look more open and vibrant.

#MMProTip:

If you have a hard time with loose pigment or shadow, wet a flat ended brush with a setting spray first. Then taking a little of the pigment on the wet brush, smoothly apply it to your lids. Make sure this action in is one go, or else the shadow can dry out on the brush really quick.

For the base:

While your regular base is done, it’s time to add some colour. Ditch the bronzer for this look and opt for a really rosy blush colour. With an angled or kabuki brush, sweep the colour from the apples of your cheek towards your high points.

For the lips:

Emphasise your pout with a pop of colour. Use a deep cherry red or any hue of pink you fancy.

#MMProTip:

To keep your pout red and hot, and last all night long, keep a tissue over and brush on some translucent powder. Apply another layer of lipstick over, and repeat the process again.

Now you’re ready for a romantic night with bae
