Date Night Make Up and Outfit Tutorial | New Woman Magazine

So, while we got you all set for a Lunch date in our previous post, it's time to glam up and get set for the ultimate date night. Ditch those typical LBDs and gowns for something more elegant this year. But hey, who said you have to let go of bling? In this post, we decode the make up and look book in a step-by-step tutorial, as featured in our special editorial for the New Woman Magazine (February Issue). Get set to look glamorous and achieve that perfect look for a special date night, this valentine's day.

Step One: Set the base as per your preference (you can follow the steps mentioned in our Day Date Look). 
Step Two: Since we are creating a look for an evening / night date, I have added a hint of bling with darker hues on the eyes. Start with a light base colour and spread it well all over the eye area. I chose the 'Pure white' shade from the Sleek Matte Eyeshadow Palette. Next, I chose the shade 'Maple' (from the same palette) and blended it well with multiple strokes on the crease. The idea is to get a darker hue of the shade. Apply a hint of the 'Pure white' shade on the inner corner of your eyes. 
Step Three: To add some drama, use a metallic eye shadow on the lid and blend it well. I have used the Kiko stick eye shadow in Golden Beige. Blend the maple and gold hues at the fold of your eyelid.

Step Three: Use a liquid eyeliner on the top lash line. Create a thin line using the Lakmé Absolute Gloss Artist (Black) and create inner inverted edges towards the end.

Step Four: To make your lashes look voluminous, add a swipe of the MAC Haute and Naughty Mascara. Use the large oriface to add volume for a dramatic look.

Step Five: To highlight your cheeks and get the perfect flushed cheeks, I used the Honey Bronze Highlighter by The Body Shop, which can be used both as a highlighter and a cream blush (use at least 3-4 layers for the colour to be visible). Start near the apple of your cheeks (image 1). Use it in the upwards direction (apple of the cheek to the temples). Start by blending with your fingers and then, use a blending brush for the finishing touches.

Step Six: Create an outline with your lip-liner. I have used the Kiko Lip Pencil in classic red. Fill in with a retro matt red lipstick like MAC Ruby Woo. For those who need a touch of gloss, you can choose the Lakme Absolute Gloss Addict in Red Delight.

For the Hair: Use an anti-frizz serum to ensure your hair stays in place. Make two tiny braids on both sides and pack them at the centre behind using pins. Spray some hairspray for better hold. You can also choose to curl the ends. Add some fancy hair accessories at the centre to complete the look. If you have side fringes, leave them naturally open for a chic look.

And finally, add some blingy drama to your outfit with a pair of metallic shoes and clutch. You can also choose to accessorise it with some rings, but I kept it simple and preferred to go the minimal way with just a cuff. Throw on a jacket, because nights continue to be cold in February! Oh and hey, enjoy your date.

Do let us and the amazing team at New Woman know how you like this look! Enjoy the Valentine's Weekend with your loved ones. And, don't forget to look your stylish best.
