Our Favorite Date Night Beauty Looks

There is a certain duality that only a red lip can deliver. A look that is both classy and trendy. Refined, yet adventurous. Put simply, a red lip can be a lot of moods, but one thing it most certainly is not is boring. Once you’ve nailed a daring lip, enhance that confident look with a spritz of your signature scent. There’s something to be said for looking and feeling your best for date night. We asked five stylish social media mavens how they go for bold with their favorite date night look, along with the scents that get them in the right mood. Get ready to be inspired and head straight to Macy’s to stock up on your own. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we’re already feeling romance in the air.

Sydnee loves the attention-grabbing quality of Shiseido's ModernMatte Powder Lipstick in Exotic Red. With its non-drying formula and full-coverage, matte finish, it lasts through the night with eight-hours of serious staying power. Before she heads out, she always gives herself a spritz of Ralph Lauren’s Romance, an airy perfume with notes of rose, jasmine, and patchouli for a sweet blend of florals and musk.

Nitsan’s date night style is flirty and fun, and she shows that with a bold liquid lipstick: Armani’s Lip Maestro Liquid lip in Shade 400 (The Red). The color is vibrant, and the formula lasts through her dinner and beyond. The applicator makes it easy to line and fill for an extra full look. She pairs it with Versace’s Bright Crystal which matches her fun vibe with its refreshing notes of peony, lotus, and amber.

Farah loves doing her hair big and natural, and her lips take no back seat. That’s why she reaches for YSL Rouge Volupté Shine Oil-In-Stick Lipstick in Rouge Ballet. It's a high-shine, and hydrating lipstick (no flakey lips to worry about here) with a fun pop of color. For her fragrance, the gardenia-spiked scent of Coach Dreams is her new go-to for a night about the town.

Aysha is all about a classic red, and it doesn’t get more classic than MAC's Retro Matte Lipstick in Ruby Woo. The universally flattering red is practically a staple for her. With its velvety matte finish and highly-pigmented color, this lipstick is a statement-maker that won’t be forgotten. To finish off, she's also a fan of the fresh scent of Versace's Bright Crystal perfume.

Tyla-Lauren is all about a sleek date night look. For that, she turns to YSL’s Rouge Pur Couture The Slim Sheer Matte Lipstick in Rouge Libre, a gorgeous wash of red. It’s a lightweight, matte lipstick housed in a square bullet for easy application. She sets off the mood with a structured black blazer and a spritz of Ralph Lauren’s Romance perfume — a sweet final detail for a chic date night look.
