In my previous post I shared how much I love that retro perception of beauty. It is valid for both clothes & makeup. Whenever Ron and I are going out for dinner or an event, I love to opt for the classic red lip and cat eye look. However, today I am sharing with you a date night makeup look with a twist – the classic cat eye gets a glittery upgrade.
I like this makeup look for a few reasons: it’s an all time classic, it’s really easy to recreate, and it mixes pink glitter with red lips. The latter is not your typical color pairing and that’s what I love about it actually. Scroll down to see all the products I’ve used.
A tester of this foundation arrived with my order from Notino and I decided to give it a go. I was very pleased with the foundation to my surprise because I’m so loyal to Double Wear Water Fresh. Now I’m considering to order this one as it gives more coverage and is skin perfecting.
I think it is very important to have a red lip pencil in addition to your red lipstick for a better contour and lip shaping as well as color durability. However, I also think that it is important to buy them together, and even better consider one brand for both of them so they are a perfect match.
It is one of the classiest red lip colors – #1 Le Rouger. A classic red which also comes in a limited edition packaging, making a great Valentine’s gift idea that will last. The lipstick has a creamy texture and feels comfortable on lips giving them the needed hydration.
Another good mascara for achieving both length and volume. However, I’d say it’s better at creating length in comparison to volume, but it’s still a good one.
I have a bit of a mixed feelings about this product. Now that I have tried it, I can say it’s a good product for daily use. Appropriate for sensitive eyes. Very easy to apply, especially when it comes to thin lines, but the color isn’t intense enough and tends to smudge easily. For a date night makeup look, I’d recommend this one.
And last but not least, the sparkly eye liner. I think this is a great budget friendly product. It is easily applied, makes a statement, lasts long, and is easily removed with a makeup cleanser. For this look I used the Quartzy color.
