January 1 | 1 minute watch

With Valentine’s Day rapidly approaching, we’ve created the perfect, easy date night look using some of the staples that will never leave our beauty bag!

Whether you and your significant other are planning a delicious dinner, a wander through a museum or staying in and ticking another Best Picture nominee off the watch list before Oscar night (pro tip: perhaps avoid Anatomy of a Fall…) this glowy, subtle look will be the perfect accessory on 14 February.

1. Start by applying the Stila Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow in the shade ‘Contessa all over the lid with the MECCA MAX soft shadow brush.

2. Then go in with the Stila Stay All Day Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in ‘Espresso‘ and apply to the outer half of the lid and lower lash line. Gently smudge with your finger until you get a blended, diffused look.

3. Brush the Kosas Air Brow Fluff & Hold Treatment Gel through your brows to set them in place.

4. Use your favourite lash curler to give your lashes a lift and apply a light coat of the Too Faced Better Than Sex Volumising Mascara to the outer lashes.

5. Turn to the Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate Contour Duo to give your cheekbones some dimension – create depth and shape with the deeper shade, and add glow with the illuminating shade.

6. Create a pretty, flushed look with the ILIA Multistick – apply on your cheeks and blend.

7. Finish with the RMS Beauty Lip Lights Cream Lip Gloss for a glossy kiss of colour.
