Date Night Makeup

This makeup look is pretty much gorgeous on anyone.

It’s a dark eye + nude lip that is SO easy.

Whether you are an eye shadow ninja who applies every layer with skill and precision or you are like me…somewhat lacking on the perfectionism scale,  YOU can do this look.

    • Yes! I use Garnier Fructise color in Soft black for my roots…and other than that my hair is a total mutt of chocolatey brown and who knows what over the years but I mostly just leave that alone and dye the roots….

  1. looks great! i always want to do this look, but i have super sensitive/allergic skin and my lips break out in sores if i use certain kinds of lipstick or gloss… i’ve found i can only use some in the smashbox or maybelline brands. can you recommend any lip colors in those lines? i LOVE your nude lip, it’s perfect.

  2. You are seriously just beautiful!! And I LOVE and am so grateful for all of your tutorials…and I think my husband it too! :) I hope you don’t mind but me and my sisters have a blog together… and that share all of our good finds. So I put your blog on there so people can know where to find the best tutorials! You are amazing! Thank you!

  3. Perfect I love it! Question I’ve been loosing sleep over: I don’t own any ‘nice’ eye shadows, do you think the moon shadow pallet would be a good starting place for someone who isn’t planning on buying many other eye shadows anytime soon? I’ve noticed you have used it in other tutorials. Also I want to buy some ‘nice’ brushes for said eyeshadow, are there a few you can recommend that are essential for a variety of looks? Thankyou so much for your amazing tutorials and being so down to earth about makeup! I love love your blog!
    Oh one more thing-would love to see tutorial on the hair you have in the picture here!

  4. Ahh I love it!! Can you please do some tutorials on the Moonshadow Baked Palette – In The Nude? I got that because you said it was one of your top ten products…and I would love to see a beautiful way to use it….because I lack any skills in the makeup department. Thanks so much! Keep posting tutorials please! I’m learning so much from you.

    • YES! I am sorry I should have mentioned in the tutorial that you could TOTALLY do this same look with that pallet too! Basically the exact same way I did with the new one!

  5. So I have been wanting to tell you for like ever now how much you help me! I’m still in highschool and you are such and inspiration to be because when i graduate i want to become a makeup artist. Love all your tutorials, you are beautiful!!

    • Thank you SOOO much Haily! It sounds silly but I seriously choked up when I read your comment. SO sweet! I am so excited they you are going to be a makeup artist! IF you ever need any help or have any questions I hope you won’t hesitate to come to me! LOVE AND HUGS!

    • yes and YES! I love them! BUT you HAVE to have them done by someone reputable…or else they can be a disaster!

  6. I love your tutorials, I have a problem though, When ever I go to high light under my eyes it ends up looking really gray. I have super dark circles, so I dont know if I am just SOL but I was wondering if you have any suggestions for me? Thanks!

  7. not just gorgeous, but you’re adorable!! i tried to meet up with you once before, but it didn’t pan out. one of these days i will get myself over to st. george and have a maskCARA makeover!!

  8. Such a great tutorial; it was so easy for me to follow and I was stunned to see that the results turned out perfectly!!! I can’t wait to show my sister!!! Thanks!!!

  9. I’m so happy to find a smokey eye that doesn’t make us dark haired girls look goth or like raccoons!!! Love this whole tutorial. Any videos on how to look good in the new bright lipstick trend going on???????

  10. You have given me the confidence to experiment with my makeup. Thank you! I love the looks you do – both hair and makeup.

  11. I have kind of an unrelated question about your skin tone..I love dark hair on me about the color of yours but I find that unless I am fairly tan it always washes me out, especially in the winter when I can get really pale. Do you tan a lot? Or if not, what kind of bronzer/self-tan do you use?

  12. Just want to stop by and tell you how wonderful I think your tutorials are. And it really helps that you are very personable and sweet. I’ve never had the confidence to do anything crazy with my makeup until now. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for these tutorials. I get so many compliments on my looks lately and it’s all because of you! Keep in being amazing!

  13. I just found you from Pinterest!!!…….totally adore you. You are so fun & real….love it…..

    Anyway 40 yrs old & you are the first girl to not make me be scared to try smokey eye…..

    I tried it last nite and looooved it….can’t wait to do it for a night out! or Vegas!

  18. Hi Cara! What kind of foundation (if any) are you wearing in this video? Your skin looks flawless! LOVE your blog!

  19. I had a quick question. So in your video you said you use carbon from MAC but under the video you listed nehru. I was wondering does it matter which? And if so which one? Thanks! Love your tutorials by the way! I have a whole list of stuff I want to try out! lol!

  20. Hi Cara! I never used to wear make-up but I’m slowly starting to wear it daily. I have a formal affair coming up and was wondering if you have a smokey eye tutorial with a bronze color?
