We’re pretty good at doing our own makeup day to day, but every once in a while we want to practice a little bit more. When a special occasion comes along, for example, we’d like to be able to do our yes and lips in a way that’s a little more special than our daily routine. Date nights are a great opportunity to look up some tutorials and follow along with them to try new, slightly more glamorous looks and improve your skills.
Check out these 15 awesome makeup tutorials that we’ve found helpful in the past and refer to before date night all the time!
1. Soft and natural
Are you not someone who generally wears a lot of makeup in your daily routine but you’d like to get every so slightly fancy for this particular date? Then this Lauren Curtis tutorial for a softer, more natural look is the one for you! It walks you through the steps for applying makeup with a light hand so that it looks like you’re wearing hardly anything at all, letting you stay true to your features.
2. Shimmering rose gold
Have you been as obsessed with rose gold shimmers and chromes as we have lately? We can’t get over how pretty a shining rose shade looks on the centre of the eyelids and blended out to the edges. HCG Dominicana teaches you how to get that look but intensify the eye by also blending a slightly darker crease. Pair the look with a matte lip in the same rose shade, but without the shimmery gold aspect so that things stay au naturel.
3. Golds and browns
Were you pretty into the gold aspect of the look above, but you’d stick with that and skip the rose part? Then trying pairing a shimmering gold lid with a series of matte browns in the corners and crease instead! easyNeon suggests topping the look off with a strong brow and a subtle wing to really give the eyes a calm glamour.
4. Blue and gold smoky night eye
Are you actually a little bit more experienced in makeup and you’re just looking for makeup tutorials that will walk you through new colour combinations so you can really show your skills off? Then we definitely recommend this pretty gold and blue smoky eye! It will make for a particularly intense look if you have blue eyes, but we agree with My Eyeshadow that it’ll actually suit anyone.
