Makeup Tutorial: Pretty and Polished Date Night Look

Personal Style blogger Alison Hutchinson gives a step-by-step tutorial on how to recreate this date night makeup
Seriously, isn't makeup amazing? All you need to do is look at a before and after to see the transformation. These photos weren't Photoshopped at all so that you can see a true before and after.

After hearing your feedback from the last couple of videos, I wanted to do another full makeup that you can recreate for yourself. This is a look that I would wear out on a date with Ollie -- focusing mainly on creating striking eyes (they are the windows to the soul after-all). I really hope you like it and please let me know if there are any other tutorials you would like to see!

Ollie and I filmed this video last weekend on a really dark and gloomy day so we had a few lighting issues (since we rely on the natural daylight). We tried to fix it as best we could, but you will notice a couple of glitches in the light. I hope you don't mind! You will definitely still be able to see the makeup perfectly and get a comprehensive step-by-step on how to achieve it. Below are the products that I used:

Quo Complexion Correcting Primer (similar from Stila)
Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer
Nars Sheer Glow Foundation
Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer
MAC Blush in Harmony (contouring)
Smashbox Bronzer in Sunkissed Matte
MAC Blush in Dainty
Benefit What's Up Soft Focus Highlighter

Mac Eyeshadows in Orb, Omega, Espresso, Mulch, Sketch
Laura Mercier Creme Eyeliner in Noir
MAC Concealer Pencil in NC15
Benefit They're Real Mascara
Sephora Eyelashes

MAC Lip Pencil in Dervish
Smashbox Lip Gloss in Disco Rose

I hope you have an amazing weekend!
