Browse below for makeup ideas that are surprisingly easy to recreate:

Natural Beat

There are so many versions of natural makeup, but the natural beat look has to be high on the list; it's easy to do but still completely enhances the features of your face. This would look great on lunch dates in broad daylight.

Tatler tip: Be sure to use a concealer that closely matches your skin tone.

Pink Glow

Channel your feminine side with this pink glowy look. This is an easy way to wear colour on your eyes as it doesn't require you to blend too many hues at once. Also, dusting a bit of glitter onto your lids can make your eyes pop, which makes it a go-to look for dates, be it in the evening or morning.

No-Makeup Makeup

If you're going on a beach date, trying the no-makeup makeup look might be more appropriate. Have a look at how Gela Laurel styled Anne Curtis—feather eyebrows, a tinge of brown nude eyeshadow and blush, mascara, and lip gloss. Some would apply a thin layer of foundation and concealer then apply faux freckles across the cheeks and nose as well.

Full Glam

Regardless if we've gone past the full glam trend, some people still can't get enough of it. It's perfect for dinner dates because it helps bring attention to the right places; the smokey eye and lashes, and the highlighter on the cheekbones, nose, and eyes gives you a more defined look.

Soft Glam

If you don't want to go full glam but still want a proper smokey eye, then opt for brown shades and ditch the winged liner. Focus on blending eyeshadow to make your eyes pop, much like how celebrity makeup artist Robbie Pinera did on Shay Mitchell. Then go heavy on the mascara—apply on the top and bottom lashes. Lastly, contour!

Icy with a Twist

Although celebrity makeup artist, Priscilla Ono, had done this makeup for the Christmas season, it still can be a point of reference for those who want the same glowy and icy look on a date. The trendy white liner blends so well with shimmery pink eyeshadow and red lipstick. Try this makeup on a date during the daytime!

Smokey Matte

You can still dazzle without the shimmer on a date by wearing matte makeup and applying the usual smokey eyeshadow and matte lipstick in a darker colour. It would look amazing with a simple winged liner. It's also easy to match this eye makeup with any lipstick.

Tatler tip: Instead of wearing false lashes, apply black mascara to add some drama to your lashes as it lengthens them and adds volume. Then use a spoolie brush to evenly spread out the top and bottom lashes.
