BEST DATE NIGHT BEAUTY TIPS
Beauty routines can become a routine. But is there anything better than looking and feeling your most radiant when you’re out for dinner or drinks with someone special. So how to achieve the delicate balance between alluring and effortless?We asked some of our favorite stylish women about their go-to tricks for the best date night tricks ever.
“I don’t really have a date-night beauty ritual per se, I mix it up. But more so than on any night, it’s important for me not to look too made up! I prefer that kind of ‘I just rushed out of work looking like this’ thing. Recently, I’ve been just throwing my hair into a high bun and focusing on the face, although the big hair can come out at a time I’m more confident in seducing! My most recent makeup discovery is Charlotte Tilbury’s mascara. It’s great because you can layer it depending on how thick you want it to be. Another favorite is Hourglass lip stain! Their newest shade, Dusty Rose, is a slightly salmon-pinky-orange—perfect in that it lasts through dinner or drinks—and it definitely grabs the attention of your opponent.” Elisabeth von Thurn und Taxis, Vogue Fashion Editor-at-Large said
“Healthy glowing skin is the sexiest thing a person can have in my book, so date night typically finds me putting on Origins Original Skin Renewal Serum which gives a great glow. Another major go-to of mine is Nivea Creme on the lips. It moisturizes without looking messy! I typically finish with a spray of Tom Ford Beauty’s Tobacco Vanille, which is a fragrance that both my boyfriend and I wear.” Aurora James,founder of Brother Vellies
“I carry two products in my clutch on date nights. The first is YSL’s Vernis à Lèvres Glossy Stain because it stays put and it stays shiny throughout the evening. The second is Clé de Peau’s concealer for quick touch-ups that blend into the skin seamlessly.”Indre Rockefeller,entrepreneur
“Less is definitely more. I love to focus on specific features like brows, lashes, and lips. A natural clean look always makes me feel sexier, therefore I stay away from foundation, but highlight my eyes with waterproof mascara and stick to a neutral lip—so that [at the end of the night], I am not wiping makeup off of my date’s shirt collar.” Cipriana Quann, cofounder and editor in chief of Urban Bush Babes
