Date Night Favourites | Lippy In The City

Garrad and I love a date night. We’re currently in the process of saving up for our wedding but we still make time for a date night at least once a month, whether that be grabbing a quick pizza and a cider, or a full-on Michelin star experience, we feel it’s important that we spend quality time together when we can. I love getting dressed up if we’re going out somewhere special, so today I thought I’d share with you some of the makeup products that I reach for if I’m putting on the glitz...

I like to start with a good foundation when I'm going out-out. My skin isn’t the greatest atmo, and if I can fake the ‘flawless’ I’m all for it. My current go-to foundation is the EX1 Invisiwear Liquid Foundation in shade 1. Like the name suggests, this is their lightest shade but it’s still a smidge too dark for me so I wear this when I’ve applied a bit of St Tropez. The foundation has a buildable to full coverage finish and it won't leave your skin looking cakey, it’s absolutely gorgeous!



Blusher and highlighter are another of my go-to makeup products and these miniature ones from Becca are the dream. Granted, they’re expensive, hence why I have the baby versions, but the pigmentation and blend-ability is second to none. I have the Mineral blusher in shade Flowerchild and the Shimmering Skin Perfector Highlighter in Moonstone.

False lashes are a firm favourite of mine and are great for adding that extra touch of glamour on a date night. If you’re a regular around these parts you’ll know that as much as I love falsies, I’m not the best at applying them... (practice makes perfect eh).

I've recently discovered a brand called ESQIDO. They reached out to me and for the last few weeks I've been testing a pair of their mink lashes in the style Starlet, as well as their ESQIDO eyelash glue. The Starlet lashes have been designed to provide volume at a shorter length, making them perfect for people with smaller eye shapes like myself. The ends are winged out to give a beautiful lifted effect to your eyes, plus the lashes are mounted on a soft cotton band making them comfortable to wear, yet durable enough to reuse multiple times - It's safe to say, I'm addicted!

ESQIDO lashes are handcrafted from the softest and finest naturally shed mink hairs and I can literally apply these quicker than I can apply mascara, within a few minutes I don't even notice I'm wearing them anymore.



Whilst initially browsing the ESQIDO website, there were so many gorgeous lashes to choose from, I didn't know where to begin. If your unsure like me on which lash shapes suit you best, ESQIDO offer a fantastic Lash Guide that you can work through to discover your perfect pair of false eyelashes in no time at all. 

After wearing the Starlet lashes numerous times I can safely say they're one of the best pairs of false eyelashes I have ever tried, I'll definitely be purchasing another pair for my wedding. The ESQIDO eyelash glue that I received is also out of this world good, I promise you your lashes won't budge all day! It's been specially formulated to be latex-free so it's perfect for sensitive eyes too.

Have you tried any of my date night favourites before? Which products do you reach for when your going out-out? xoxo


A massive thank you to the team at ESQIDO for giving me the opportunity to experience these amazing Starlet Mink Lashes. The samples I received were complimentary and for review purposes, all opinions as always, are my own.
