Hello, my beauties! I’m so excited that it’s spring already – for me, it’s a time of love, inspiration and therefore a first date makeup look creation! Traditionally, February is a month of love and date nights, but I don’t think we need to focus on February only when it comes to love and romance. Going on dates and especially first dates are always very exciting, sometimes a little bit worrying, but always fun. Today I’d like to review some Pixi by Petra make-up products and show you how I create a perfect first date makeup using them.
First Date Make-Up Look
The first product is called Flawless Beauty Primer in Even Skin, £24. It creates a faux candle lit glow. It hydrates and restores skin to its beautiful self. Prolongs your make-up and cover any blemishes and imperfections. This primer has been created with pearl extracts, which protects skin. Anti-aging vitamin A and nourishing vitamin E help skin to recover from the harsh winter conditions. I love the way this product illuminates my skin leaving it looking fresh and dewy. I find this product help my foundation to stick to it, this prolongs a make-up wear during the day. I love to use illuminating primers under foundation or mix it with foundation and apply together. Applying these products together will guarantee a dewy healthy skin finish, which is so trendy now!
The second product is called Sheer Cheek Gel in Flushed, £14. This product helps create a fresh-faced flush and a dewy complexion with a hint of colour. It’s a gel-based product that is silky smooth to the touch. It’s lightweight and hydrating. I feel that this product is ideal for spring and summer use on cheeks and lips to add a pop of colour to your illuminated complexion. To apply this product dab onto cheeks and apply with fingertips in an upward and outward motion. Start from a small portion of the product and top-up if needed. Apply to lips for a very natural lip make-up – just to add a tiny little bit of healthy colour to your lips.
The next product is called Mattelustre Lipstick in classic red, £14. This lipstick is just like every woman out there, a multitasker. It conditions, plumps and protects lips while it’s colour is fantastic! This lipstick contains vitamins C and E, which helps make lips fuller and smoother. I love the fact that this product can achieve many looks. One coat will give you a sheer fresh and youthful look. Add more coats and you will have a deeper richer shade perfect for a more intimate date. I also find that this shade can also give the appearance of whiter teeth, because of it’s cool undertone. My teeth look whiter and bolder when I have this lipstick on! As with any =moisturising lipstick, you will need to re-apply it during the day, so don’t forget to pop it into your handbag!
