Create natural-looking date night makeup

Does date-night makeup stress you out? Do you ever struggle to create a cohesive look that emphasizes your eyes and lips without being too obvious? If so, this tutorial will help you amp up your everyday look for a night out with a special someone.
Date-night makeup calls for soft winged liner, naturally glowing skin and a kiss of color on the cheeks and lips. If you own an eye shadow palette with both matte and shimmer shades, you're off to a good start. Brown and peachy pink shadows keep the eyes looking defined but not dramatic. For the cheeks and lips, try rosy red blush and dusty pink lipstick to create the look of love.

Instructions
1. Fill in your brows with the eyebrow pencil. Use the spoolie to diffuse the pigment and brush your brows into place.
2. Apply liquid concealer onto the brow bone with a flat eye shadow brush to further define your brows. Pat and press the concealer into place with your finger to avoid brush marks.
3. Set the concealer by brushing mineral foundation onto your entire eye area with a fluffy blending brush.
4. Sweep matte brown eye shadow into the crease and onto the outer corner of your eyelid with a fluffy blending brush.
5. Brighten your eye by applying peachy pink shimmer eye shadow to the eyelid with your finger. Shimmery eye shadow has better pigmentation when applied with a finger instead of a brush.
6. Apply chocolate brown eye shadow to your upper lash line with a flat shadow liner brush. Create a small wing at the outer corner, and use a makeup remover wipe to clean up any mistakes and. make the wing more defined.
7. Curl your eyelashes with the eyelash curler using gentle squeezing motions, and apply black mascara to the upper lashes.
8. Apply chocolate brown eye shadow below the lower lashes with the flat shadow liner brush.
9. Even out your complexion by gently rubbing BB cream into your skin with your fingers.
10. To give your face more dimension, apply liquid concealer below your eyes, on the center of your nose, below the outer corners of your lips and on the center of your chin with the applicator wand. Stipple the product into your skin with a dense face brush. Small tapping motions are less likely to leave brush marks.
11. Warm up your complexion by swirling bronzing powder along the cheekbones and jawline with a fluffy cheek brush.
12. For a dramatic evening look, apply red blush to the apples of your cheeks with a blush brush, and use your fingers to diffuse the pigment.
13. Accentuate the tops of your cheekbones and the center of your nose by tapping gold highlighter onto them with your finger.
14. Apply dusty rose lipstick to your lips with your fingers, and apply bright pink lipstick on the center of the bottom lip to create an ombré effect.
