get the look…date night

It’s date night tonight for my fiancé and I and I have yet to find out what our plans will be. I normally don’t like spontaneity, but since one of my New Year’s resolutions this year is to be more spur-of-the-moment, I’ve decided to go with it and be surprised. The downfall to this decision however, is I will have a hard time getting ready this evening without knowing what exactly is on the itinerary.

My solution to this? I’ve decided to go with the no-fail LBD paired with a simple, yet polished face. My goal is to achieve the “I always look this good” look, by combining natural with a touch of glamour.

Here’s the beauty breakdown for my natural date night look


Start by mixing “that gal” primer with you rebel tinted moisturizer. I like to start by adding both products to the back of my hand and then apply them to my face using a foundation brush. Start with your T-zone, and work the product out towards your neck and hairline.

Use a concealer to cover up any dark circles or blemishes. An industrial strength concealer like boi-ing works great for faking a flawless face.


For a natural sexy brow, the instant brow pencil is perfect. Simply glide the product over the brows and use the spoolie tip to blend.


For a light pink shimmer, use a cream shadow brush to apply creaseless cream shawdow/liner in r.s.v.p. from your lash line to your brow bone.  Next using a powder shadow brush, apply a layer of velvet eyeshadow in buckle bunny to your eyelid crease.

Define eyes by lining the upper lash line with BADgal liner waterproof in espresso. A brown liner instead of black helps to achieve a more natural look.

Intensify your natural eye color and add volume to your lashes with BADgal plum mascara.


For a “heavenly flush,” try Benefit’s newest box o’ powder hervana. This product provides a mixture of four shades of beautiful color. Simply swirl the included blush brush and sweep on the apples of your cheeks in an upward motion. My top tip, smile when you apply!

smile & say "hervana"

Add some extra radiance by applying satin pink high beam on your cheekbones and temples. There’s a reason this product is called “supermodel in a bottle,” it provides all skin tones with an amazing gorgeous glow.


Finish off your look with shy, a light pink full-finish lipstick.


ready for action!
