Summer is in the air and and so is romance during the longer summer nights. Below are 6 date-worthy romantic makeup looks that will have you upping your flirting game in no time.
1. Big lashes
Let your eyes do the flirting with big and bold lashes on your date night. Start off by drawing a cat eye on your top lids with a black liquid eyeliner, followed by two layers of volumising mascara. Now, to make your eyes flutter, curl your lashes with an eyelash curler and apply a few individual lashes to the outer corner of your eyelids, which will give your eyes a mysterious almond shaped effect.

2. Poppy red lips
Red lips are always in trend and especially over the summer, but why not try a bright and playful shade of red, like poppy to add a bit of spark to your smile? Poppy red is much warmer than a traditional deep red, which makes it the perfect shade for fun and kissable date night lips.

Keep the rest of your makeup up to a minimum with fresh dewy skin to balance out the colour.
3. Rose palette
Classical pale and dusty pinks have always been known as the most romantic of colours, so why not opt for a more lady-like look with classically lined eyes, rosy cheeks and pale lips this summer? Get those peepers talking with liquid eyeliner and plenty of volumising mascara, followed by a pale pink cream blush and a pinkish-nude lipgloss.

4. Barely there makeup
There’s a nude look for every season and barely there makeup is just the look for a more casual daytime date. Start off with a tinted moisturiser, or BB cream and finely line your eyelids and waterline with a black eyeliner. To illuminate your skin, opt for a nude highlighting cream, which you can apply to your cheeks, eyelids and brow arches to give definition to your face. Trace your lips with a nude pencil and finish off with a lip balm, or non-sticky lip gloss. Perfect!
5. Stained lips
Attract attention to your pout with stained red lips this summer. Start off with a clean base and prep your lips with lip balm. Apply your lipstick, or stain to the centre of your lips and blend outwards using your finger tips. Go for a darker plum red for a vamped up look.

6. Smokey eyes
Keep it sultry with a smokey eye on your date night. You’ll want to pick three shades of loose powder eyeshadow in a similar hue to create your smokey eye. The colours are up to you, but make sure you include a creamy highlighter colour, a medium middle shade and a darker top colour for the smokey effect. Conceal your eyes with a primer and build up your colours in layers using an eyeshadow brush. Remember to use a dark eyeliner to accentuate your smokey eyes and make sure your eyebrows are on point as all eyes will be on your smokey eye.
The Chanel Les 4 Ombres Multi-effect Quadra Eyeshadow is just the tool you need to create a smokey eye look!
