It’s finally spring! Along with the warm sun shining and flowers blooming, we are swooning for love *and* new beauty products! Today, we’ve paired some of Sephora’s newest beauty goodies with a few themed date looks that are simple yet sexy and will inspire your next outing with your crush! Get ready to feel as beautiful as you’ll look!

Wine + Dine

One of the best things about the warmer weather is getting to throw on a mini dress that screams sexy yet sophisticated. It’s the perfect attire if you’re getting wined and dined or having a night out on the town. From flirtatious locks to a bold kissable lip, we have you covered in this subtly daring look.

Get The Vibe:

Bite Beauty Prismatic Pearl Crème Lip Gloss in Peacock ($22): This shea butter infused lip-softening gloss smells like candy and packs a pigment that delivers a foiled finished. Your date will be mesmerized from the subtle shimmer with each word you speak — don’t be surprised if you get kissed throughout your date!

Benefit Cosmetics Work Kit, Girl! Work-Day Essentials Makeup Kit ($32): When wearing a bold lip, it’s a good idea to pair it with a slightly more subtle look on the rest of your face. This kit is packed with a face primer to give your look an even flawless foundation. Hoola bronzer is a great matte hue that gives you just enough depth without the shimmer. For a soft natural flush, the Benetint cheek stain has you covered. Finally, throw on a few coats of They’re Real Mascara for a fluttering lash look that will steal the show — no other eye makeup necessary!

Bumble and Bumble Sumoclay ($29) For that sexy gritty, matte texture, this workable clay gives your hair the piecey definition that is still totally touchable. The beachy-summery scent will have your date wanting to nuzzle in your tousled locks. Simply apply a small amount to your fingers and work into the ends of your hair, shake and go!


Cup of Joe

Sometimes for a first date it’s nice to test the waters over coffee in case you need to jump ship! Let’s be real, though — you’re hopeful that’s not the case so you still bring your secret A game! A white t-shirt that fits comfortably paired with slightly holed denim skinny jeans is flirty enough without looking like you tried. You’ll want a glowing fresh face and a scent that highlights your natural pheromones to let your natural beauty and light shine!

Get The Vibe:

Benefit Cosmetics Sunday My Prince Will Come Easy Weekender Makeup Kit ($32): After a light layer of your favorite tinted moisturizer, this kit has everything you need from California Sunny Golden Pink peachy-bright glowing blush (that also doubles as an eyeshadow) to the classic High Beam highlighter that you can use on your brow bones, inside corners of your eyes, cheekbones, and bridge of your nose for that luminous glowing skin. Gimme brow will amp your arches while They’re Real tinted primer in brown will bump your lashes just enough. Nothing short of beauty-FULL!

Commodity Bergamot Perfume ($135): A perk to a gender-neutral scent is that both you and your date’s senses can be simultaneously stimulated! This rich, indulgent and luxurious scent has notes of pomelo and violet leaf.

The Adventurer

Getting glammed up and hitting the town is always fun, but sometimes you just want to get outdoors for a date. That means you get to wear your cute off the shoulder textile sweater that lays over a pair of fitted leggings so you can hit a hiking trail with your crush! It’s clutch to have a protective layer of beauty goods to shield the sun and makeup that is subtle and capable of lasting through a little movement!

Get The Vibe:

Olehenriksen Counter Balance Oil Control Hydrator ($34): When you’re going to be in the heat adventuring, this lightweight, mattifying hydrator with potent active botanicals is a solid base to use for oil control. This will also help your favorite SPF foundation stay put which is super important for being out in those sun rays.

Benefit Cosmetics Date Night With Mr. Right Sexy Night Out Makeup Kit ($32): If you’re spending the day outdoors, getting that sun-kissed glow out the gate is where it’s at! Apply What’s Up cream-to-powder highlighter to your cheekbones, brow bones, bridge of your nose, inside corners of your eyes, and right above your cupid’s bow, and blend by tapping your finger over. Your cheeks and eyes will brighten up with a sweep of Rockateur rose gold blush. Runny mascara is not an option but They’re Real mascara will keep your lengthy lashes through any activity! Lastly, hydrate and protect your lips while also getting a lusty rose tint with They’re Real Double lipstick.

Before you head out on any of these dates in your favorite look, make a date with your local Sephora and get ready for to fall in love with these beauty gems and with life! When you feel good, look good – life is good!
