This simple but very sensual look that you can create for a romantic dinner with your other half. In this tutorial I am using drugstore beauty products only.

    The most important part of your makeup is that it should stay the whole night (hey, you never know what might happen after a romantic dinner, right?). In order to achieve it, I recommend using a makeup primer. For this look, I used CVS Instant Miracle Illusion Smoother, which is a dupe to L’Oreal RevitaLift Miracle Blur.

    I like when my foundation is thicker than a BB-cream, but lighter than a medium or full-coverage foundation, and this L’Oreal Magic Nude Liquid Powder seem to have a perfect consistency for me.

    I like multi-purpose makeup products, and this highlighter/concealer is one of such products. Some people claim that L’Oreal Magic Lumi Highlighter is a dupe for YSL Touche Eclat, but I think it is much more than that. Magic Lumi is perfect for highlighting the areas under your eyebrows, while it could also be used for covering imperfections.

    Since I decided to make an accent on red lips, I picked nude tones for my eye makeup. I used a new product by Rimmel called Exxagerate Waterproof Eye Definer and found it to be very helpful in creating a bare look. It comes in a shape of eye pencil, while its consistency reminded me a concealer. I applied this product all over my eyelid and then applied an eyeliner Rimmel ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal in #005 Nude on a lower eyelid.

    I’ve never been a fan of liquid eye liners, but this drugstore product completely changed my opinion about this category of beauty products. L’Oreal Infallible Lacquer Liner 24H in Blackest Black comes with a small brush that makes an application process easy. The product has a consistency of a gel (it actually reminds me gel pens that I loved so much while studying in middle school) and stays in place for hours and hours. After that I applied my favorite drugstore mascara CoverGirl LashBlast Volume in Very Black #800.

    For my sensual red lip look I decided to use two lip glosses at a time. First I applied L’Oreal Infallible Lacquer Liner 24H. This very liquid gloss stays on your lips for a long period of time, but it is not bright enough for a night out. I applied L’Oreal Infallible 8hr Le Gloss in Red Fatale #320 on top of that gloss that comes in a bright red color and tastes delicious.
