Glo Minerals continues to impress me with their new products, and I wanted to create date night makeup look (perfect for Valentine’s Day!) using all of the Glo Minerals products that I currently have in my collection. Bonus: I’ve created a video tutorial for this post so if you don’t have time to read about all the products, just skip down to the end to watch!
Date Night Makeup with Glo Minerals
I don’t have a primer from Glo Minerals, so I reached for this one that I’ve been testing out recently. I’ve been having a hard time deciding if it was worth the steep pricetag — I don’t really notice a difference with my making staying oil free any longer than my other primers… :-/
This foundation is really nice. It’s in a foggy-glass bottle with a pump (I love a pump!) and just feels so highend. The consistency is a bit thick and it sets rather quickly, so I found it was best to work in sections when using this foundation. But I loved the coverage and lasting power, so it’s a win for me!
Since I didn’t have any concealers from Glo Minerals, I reached for Shape Tape to conceal my dark circles. This concealer is very nice, there’s no doubt about it. I have to use a LOT less product than you see in the Youtube and Instagram tutorials, or else it’s crease city.
Because the Tarte Shape Tape is so thick, I can’t use it for highlighting the face, so I grabbed for the Naked Skin concealer. I’ve been really loving the results I get using the Tarte and Urban Decay concealers as a duo team.
I decided not to bake for my date night look, but just lightly set my under eyes and dust my whole face with Glo Minerals loose setting powder. Once again, the packaging is fantastic — the sifter even rotates so that you can ‘close’ it and you don’t have to worry about loose powder continually coming out and making a mess. The texture reminds me of the loose Bye Bye Pores setting powder from IT Cosmetics.
I don’t have a bronzer or contour product from Glo Minerals so I reached for my tried-and-true bronzer from Too Faced. Because it’s matte and pretty cool-toned on my skin, I like to use this as a contour to help define my cheekbones and bring back some depth into my face.
This blush is gorgeous, and just my type — it’s matte and that dusty mauve color that I am obsessed with. It’s not that big of a blush, so the price is kind of steep, all things considered. But I found it on Amazon for a lot cheaper, and the seller is from Glo Minerals so I would say snag it from there and save the difference. 🙂
This highlighter duo is stunning! Just wait until you see the tutorial at the end. Oh my goodness, that glow! Both side perform just as well and this is a fairly large compact, making it very much worth the pricetag. The fan brush pictured above is also from Glo Minerals, but it is a bit too thin to be my favorite fan brush. With that said, though, I still haven’t come across a highlighting brush that I like more than my Sigma F35 brush.
You know I love a good matte lip product, and these are right up there with the best! They glide on like a regular lipstick, but they are matte and gorgeous! They have a nice slip and moisturizing feel to them, making these very comfortable to wear on the lips for several hours. Bonus: they also have a built-in sharpener in the lid of the crayon. I love it! For the date night makeup look I created, I picked two different lipsticks out that you could rock, depending on your preference.
The first shade is vibrant and fun! Almost a neon-fuchsia-pink, this color is called Sorbet and is simply stunning! The wear time is typically for a matte lipstick — better than a regular glossy lipstick, but not as long lasting as a matte liquid lipstick.
Another lip option that is perfect for this date night makeup look is Demure. It’s that perfect mauve-nude shade that everyone likes and looks great on a variety of skintones. <3 In the end, though, I decided that I wanted a bold lip for my Valentine’s Day date night look, and went with Sorbet.
