A date night is when you bring your A-game to the table. It’s time to put your makeup skills to use by creating a graphic eyeliner. You can use different shades of eyeliner, different styles or simply stack them for a double eyeliner look. If you’re a newbie and want to attempt this look, the Lakmé Insta Eye Liner is a fab pick for you. It comes in four shades that are great for getting creative. A nude lip would be the best with this eye

Let your eyes dominate the look and go for a hairstyle that doesn’t cover your face. A middle part with a tight bun or ponytail should be your go-to. Set your hair in place and add a shine with the Lakmé 9 to 5 Naturale Aloe Aqua Gel.


02. Glitter eyes + straightened hair

Everyone loves a little sparkle. Go glam with glitter eyeshadow and keep your makeup on the rosy side. Blushed cheeks and glitter eyes are the perfect duos for Valentine’s Day. For the lips, you can either go with a creme lipstick or a pigmented lip gloss. Pick your shade from seven incredible colours in the Lakmé Absolute Spotlight Lip Gloss. A non-sticky formula with an ethereal gleam!

Pair this look with sleek hair. Let your hair down and straighten it out to create that soft and glamorous look.

This one is for the bold and fiery ones. A red lip can never go wrong, especially on Valentine’s Day. Go for the classic pinup look with winged eyeliner and matte red lipstick. Our pick is the Lakmé 9to5 Primer + Matte Lip Color in Red Twist. This bullet lipstick comes with the goodness of a primer and lipstick in one while leaving a classy matte finish. The bullet shape makes it supremely easy to draw crisp lines with the edges. You can also keep it soft by using a brown eyeshadow to create your wings instead of black eyeliner.

And for the Hollywood bombshell look, curl your hair with a wide curling wand and create some bouncy curls. You can either leave it untouched after curling or style it to create loose waves. This one is a fool-proof look to try if you’re a makeup newbie.



04. Coloured lashes + messy bun

If Valentine’s Day is not your thing but dates nights are, you will love this. This makeup looks look splendid even without any base makeup. Just coat your lashes with a technicolour mascara and apply nude lipstick. Our all-time pick is the Lakmé Eyeconic Curling Mascara - Royal Blue. It adds length, volume and a vivid blue tint to your lashes. You can layer the mascara to make it more prominent or keep it subtle yet noticeable.

Keeping up with the laid back style, go for a messy bun with this look. It never goes out of style and you’ll be super comfortable throughout your date.



05. One and done + half-up hair

Date nights are fun, but when you’re at home, the motivation to dress up might not be the same. If you want to look stunning for your beau, but don’t feel like doing much, try a monochromatic look with a multi-functional product. Pick a product like the Lakmé 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color, which works as a blush, lip colour and eyeshadow - all-in-1!

Pair this effortless look with an equally effortlessly chic hairdo. Tie your hair in a half ponytail and you’re done! It’s cute, easy and takes no time.
