As the days get hotter and the nights get longer, summer nights require easy, effortless glamour. Bring out your best features with a look that subtly enhances to give you the perfect summer look. Get ready for things to get really heated up.
So Fresh and So Clean
Pretty makeup doesn't have to mean tons and tons of product, layers on top of layers, especially if you're looking to go with a no makeup, makeup look. Opt for a fresh face makeup look by focusing in on your clear, flawless complexion. Using a tinted moisturizer and some spot concealer will give you that no makeup look. After doing that, zone in on your brows. Having exquisitely groomed brows (a good brow gel will come in handy), along with a precise black liquid liner to enhance your upper lashes will give you a great landing space for your eye lashes to really shine. Make sure to curl those lashes and really lengthen and define them with your mascara. Finish this look off with a perfectly muted, nude lipstick.

Glow From Within
Who needs a candlelit dinner, when we've got highlighter? We're always obsessed with the idea of an all over luminous look for date night. Highlights counterpart is of course, contour -- no highlight would be complete without a bit of shading and sculpting. Rather than just slapping on bronzer all over, you want to do this systematically to really hone in on that back from Capri look. Mix a few dew drops into your foundation to start off with a more radiant glow. Going in with your bronzer, you want to make a 3 motion from your forehead, to your cheek, ending at the jawline. This will mimic a tan; where the sun would naturally hit you. Rather than going all smoke with your shadow, grab a silver shadow and add some along your tear ducts. Then, with your favorite pearly highlighter, here's where to fun comes in, you want to hit the high notes; your cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose and your cupids bow. By doing this, you won't be able to tell where your inner glow stops and your outer glow begins.

I'm sorry but nothing is sexier than sexy lips. Lips are alluring, attractive and kissable, what more could you ask for? If you're looking for something a little bit more provocative for date night, you've found a winner. Make sure you prep your lips, get rid of any dead skin that may be there. Apply lip liner, you have some flexibility, you can choose to match your skin tone or the lipstick color itself for best results. Lip liner is an important step in the process as this will ensure your lipstick will not feather. Make sure not just to line the lip but also fill it to to secure a nice base for the lipstick. Keeping the rest of your makeup more natural will really bring attention to the seductive lip you've just created.
