If you don’t have the time or will to spend the whole day before your date soaking in the tub, stressing over outfits and doing and redoing your hair, then Jemma’s five minute date make-up look is perfect for you.
In the demo video, Jemma explains how the first and most important step with this look is to create a smooth, even base. This can be achieved with a well-matched foundation blended over the whole face with a big, soft brush.
Next, take an eye primer and apply over the whole of the top lid. This helps to hold the eye-shadow in place for longer and also strengthens the colour and helps to create a soft edge.
Jemma recommends selecting a pearlescent taupe eye-shadow to make the eyes stand out without looking over-done. Once a natural-looking eye-shadow has been applied and blended with a fat brush, curl your lashes with eye-lash curlers and apply mascara to produce that wide, doe-eyed look – perfect for fluttering at your date.
Next, use a pinkish stain on each cheek to add a healthy glow to the face, before applying a pearly highlighter to the ridge of the cheekbones.
Last but not least, use a pinkish lipstick with a subtle gloss for natural yet plump and kissable lips.
This soft, natural look is designed to enhance your best features without making you look like you’ve tried too hard to impress!
