<p>When it comes to date night, you want to keep things lightweight and simple. Start off with a cushion foundation to unify your base. This will give you the coverage you need without feeling too cake-y. Simply pat the cushion into the formula then pat it down onto your skin for even coverage. </p>

Step-by-Step: romantic date night makeup, inspired by Nina Dobrev

by Paige Exell -

So it's Friday night and you're getting excited for that big first date. You have your outfit picked out and ready to go, now the only question left is: how to do your makeup. The basics of date night makeup are always the same – soft lips, fresh skin, and full, flirty lashes – a combination of things that are sure to make him swoon. Our only tip? Keep things lightweight and simple, and the colours soft by slightly enhancing your natural features so that he can focus on the real you (without any major distractions – although we do love a bold lip and smoky eye from time to time!).

To help you get ready for date night, Get The Look is taking inspiration from young actress Nina Dobrev, who knows exactly how to rock a subtle, yet romantic makeup look. Just follow our simple steps and you'll be ready to go!

2 True Match Blush Baby Blossom C1-3

Although we love a highly sculpted complexion, contouring and strobing has no place at date night. Instead of heavy bronzers and shiny highlighters, opt for a rose or peach coloured blush (depending on your skin tone) to warm your complexion and give you that feminine flush. Use a fluffy blush brush to gently coat the apples of your cheeks with a powdered formula. If you have drier skin, a liquid formula blush may be more ideal for you.

3 Colour Riche Eye shadow - Cupa Joe

Now for the eyes. To begin your soft, romantic look, start by placing a matte white or slightly silver shadow on the inner portion of your eyelids. Next, use a dark or medium brown shadow to shade in the outer portions of your eyelids, extending slightly up and outwards towards the arch of your brows. Use a fluffy shadow brush to blend.

Using L'Oreal's Voluminous Mascara, coat your upper and lower lashes, moving your hands in a zig-zag motion as you move from root to tip. This will create no-clump, full, flirty lashes that he won't be able to take his eyes off of!
