Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and the time is now to practice your perfect date night beauty routine. Lauren Conrad is naturally polished and has an air of effortless sophistication. Long from days as the tanned Orange County girl that graced our TVs in Laguna Beach, she has blossomed into a fashion mogul and beauty expert. Her signature cat-eye is flawless and essential for the flirty-natured holiday this February.
To capture Lauren’s date night look, try a dewy glow with Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream SPF 35 ($50, Sephora) available in four shades to best suit your personal skin tone. BB Creams are perfect for light coverage and sheer glisten, while moisturizing your skin—essential for these balmy temperatures!
Wow your date with a pop of colour—don’t be afraid of red just because it is Valentine’s. It’s a statement colour worthy of Cupid’s arrow. To avoid bleeding, use concealer around the border of your mouth before application. MAC has a wide variety of red lipsticks—stop by a store to find the shade that fits you perfectly. We suggest the Viva Glam Rihanna Lipstick ($16) to release your inner rockstar.
To truly embody Lauren’s look, coat your lids in a shimmery neutral shadow and line your lids with that famous cat-eye liner. Practice makes perfect with this look, but it also helps to have the right products. E.l.f. Studio has a Precision Liquid Eyeliner ($3) that makes more easy application. For step-by-step instructions, check out Lauren’s blog (laurenconrad.com) for her tutorial!
Top the look off with your best date night accessory: your killer confidence. Embrace the love surrounding this holiday—you’ve got the date, the attitude and now you’ve got the look!
