Date Night Makeup Look with Mecca Cosmetica
For this particular makeup look I wanted to create a beautiful, glowing base so I first prepped the skin with an illuminating primer. It creates a great base for your foundation while also giving you a fresh and glowing look. Apply a small amount to the back of your hand and then apply directly to the face (focusing on your t-zone area) with a foundation brush.
Now lets get that base sorted. Since we have already decided on a lovely glowing look for the skin, my Nars Sheer Glow foundation is the perfect choice to finish the look. Apple a 10c piece amount to the back of your hand and then apply directly to face using your foundation brush. After your foundation is applied grab your concealer and apply a tiny amount to any blemishes and/or under eye circles.
Blend in with a beauty blender.
TIP – For a better result you can leave your primer on for a few minutes and let it set before applying foundation.
I decided to use the Smashbox Contouring Sticks (these and just perfect for beginners, like me) to create a nice subtle contour.
First up is the bronze shade, apply this to just under your cheekbones, along your hairline and along the jawline. For added depth apply your contour shade directly under the bronze shade on your cheekbones. I then grab my contour brush and blend these in.
Once these are blended in nicely, grab your highlight stick and apply under the eyes, down the bridge of the nose, in the middle of your forehead, in your devils peak and on the chin. Blend these in!
TIP – remember you can always go back in and add some more contour if you feel you need more or have blended it out too much.
To finish the cheeks, I used a little bit of my Hourglass Ambient Bronzer to give my cheeks a nice bronzed glow.
I thought since, it’s Date Night after all .. a bold red lip would finish off this look perfectly. I used my Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella (I always go for a matte finish as I think it stays on much longer).
For the brows I used a tinted brow gel (this is my go-to everyday). The eyes I wanted to be simple and minimal, as I wanted the red lip to be the focus of this look.
Apply a sweep of mascara and a small amount of liner just on the top.
To finish of, plus set all of our hard work, use the Urban Decay Setting Spray and apply a few sprays mainly focusing on the t-zone.
All done, now you can go enjoy your date!
