For this look, I’ll be talking about date night makeup. When going on a date, I like to keep my makeup natural rather than looking like I have too much makeup on. Yes, I understand you want to impress the person you’re going on a date with, but applying too much makeup can make you look like you’re trying too hard. The goal is to look effortless! Below I have listed my favorite way to achieve this look!
