One of the most requested looks my clients ask me to create is something for a simple date night. You know: light, flawless and effortless. Not too made-up, but refreshing enough to flirt a little. I'm going to show you how to easily apply a natural and romantic look that will set the mood.

After applying your favorite foundation or tinted moisturizer all over your face with a brush or sponge, bronze it

Take a beautiful bronze color and apply it on 3/4 of your eyelid starting in the inner corner. Then, using the darker bronze, apply it to your outer corner in a padding motion. Take a matte brown shade and, with a blending brush, apply it on the crease of your eye to blend everything together. Finally, with a pencil brush, take this ivory frost shade and apply it to the inner corners of your eyes. Blend. Blend. Blend.

Use a makeup wipe to clean up

And clean up your under-eye area to remove any shadow fallout. Conceal your under-eye area, slightly stretching the product in a "V" shape. Press it into your skin using the same brush or sponge used for the foundation. Set your skin with a pressed or loose powder.

How to make your eyes pop

To line your eyes, take the darker of the bronze shadows in your eye palette, press it into your lower lash line for a soft, smoky effect. Apply two coats of your favorite mascara to your top and bottom lashes. Using a matte bronzer, lightly contour your face by brushing it in the hollows of the checks, around the forehead, sides of the nose, and chin. Smile to find the apples of your cheeks and apply a peachy blush with a hint of shimmer like so. Apply lipstick with a pop of color and smile.

You're ready for a night of fun!
