GET THE LOOK:
My make up routine is pretty simple day or night, and all year round. But once the weather cools down, there are a few little things I like to add to turn the heat up on my look for nights on the town. Bloomingdale’s asked me to try out a few products from the YSL collection, so I picked up some that I new would be great to use on my next date night. First of all, YSL’s packaging has the most seductive, “let’s get glam” vibe. Simply pulling it out of my make up bag set the mood for a sultry night out. I’ll break down each product I tried below and how I got a 5 min date night look for fall.
For skin, I picked up the All Hours Foundation Stick and Touche Eclat. By day I use a simple BB cream, but for a night out, a long wear foundation is a nice alternative. There’s nothing worse then hitting a dinner for late night snack after dancing all night and looking pale and tired AF because you’re make up is basically gone. Can anyone else relate? The All Hours Foundation Stick feels light and barley there, but stands the test of time.
The Touche Eclat is a highlighting pen that works as part concealer, part brightener. I like to use a brightener come colder months when my skin doesn’t have that naturally sun-kissed glow. Best part, you won’t find any shimmer or glitter mixed into the liquid, so it looks super natural on the skin.
After filling in my brows and applying my signature cat eye, I go for a mascara, of course. I generally use and love drug store mascaras, but for a special night, why not treat yourself. YSL has a mascara with the most luxe, two-tone gold tube I’ve come across.
I’m not much an eyeshadow gal and always reach for a blush to add color, but for fall nights out this year I’m taking the plunge into serious lip color. I know, I’m late to the game. With my full lips and more au natural bend toward make up, I’ve always felt like a bold lip took over my face. I’m slowly getting over that and discovering lip colors I do really like, especially matte ones. I’m wearing YSL’s Rouge Pur Couture Slim Matte Lipstick in Reverse Red. It’s a perfect-for-fall bordeaux that matches with the wine I’m sure to be having at dinner!
Don’t forget the setting spray! I hope you found one or two products here that you can add to your simple makeup routine. Have a fab date night!
