Date Night Pinks

There’s a reason why baby girls come home from the hospital decked out in pink. It’s the softest, girliest color out there, which means it’s perfect for when you want to look a little special yet not overly done up on your next date.

Start your makeup routine the usual way, wearing primer, foundation and perhaps a little powder on top to keep shine to a minimum. Give your eyes a bit of definition with a brown or black liner. Then, choose a pretty pink blush, like Youngblood – Pressed Mineral Blush and blend it in on the apples of your cheeks. Your face should look slightly flushed.

Use the same blush as an eyeshadow on your lids and make sure to blend it in really well. Then, take a shimmery pink, from a palette like bareMinerals READY Eyeshadow 8.0 The Posh Neutrals, and put it in the center of your lids and on your inner corners. You can also use it as a bit of a highlighter on the tops of your cheekbones and underneath your brow bones.

To finish it off, choose a slightly darker pink lipstick or gloss and sweep it all over your lips. You’ll look fresh and pretty without all the fuss – exactly how you want to appear to your date!
