Sexy Date Night Makeup Tutorial!

date night makeup tutorial! Subtle golden smokey eye...yes please!

Welp…sorry, but brace yourself for another beauty post! I don't usually post so frequently about beauty and makeup. But I recently got some big gift cards to Sephora and Ulta (thank you Ebates!), and I've had so much fun trying new looks and products. Y'all have been asking about the products I've been using to create these looks, so I thought I'd do a tutorial for you, just in time for Valentine's Day!

Today I'll show you how I do what I call my “subtle, golden smokey eye”, which is perfect for your hot Valentine's Day date.

Usually for my makeup looks I use mostly drugstore products (because I feel like there are some incredibly quality ones!) that only takes me about 5 minutes (or even 3 minutes!). For this smokey eye look I use pretty much all name-brand products that you would need to buy from Sephora and Ulta, vs the grocery store. It also has more steps, but is SUCH a gorgeous look. This is the type of makeup I'd do for a TV segment, and of course, date night. Every product I use in this tutorial is worth the money in my book, and is a perfect treat to save up for or ask for Christmas or birthday. However, you could certainly find similar colors and recreate the look using products that you already have! However you do it, I hope you give it a try and enjoy ;).

Not too scary, right??

Here are the products I used to get this look:

Don't buy until you sign up for Ebates first, gives you 2x cash back from Feb 8-14!!


Like I said, these are splurge items. I didn't buy them all at once, I've been collecting these things slowly over time as Ebates has cash back specials, as I get gift cards, and as gifts for holidays and my birthday. Start small or find copycat colors in the brands you love.

Reminder to sign up for Ebates if you shop online! It costs you nothing, so you'd be crazy not to. Plus, use THIS LINK and get $10 free when you spend your first $25 online!

$10 free? um…twist my arm.

Some of my favs to shop are Sephora, ULTA, Nordstrom, Macy’s, Target, Bed Bath and Beyond, The Children’s Place, Groupon, and 2,000+ others offer Cash Back as well!

What are your plans for V-day? Bubba is surprising me, and I'm so excited! Hope you all have a fabulous day of L-O-V-E!

Thanks to Ebates for sponsoring this video. As explained in this post I refuse to work with brands that don't support me in posting exactly what I want to post about, so I thank them for sponsoring this video that was all my idea!

    Thanks Jordan, loved this video…..I’m 36 and only started really putting more effort into my makeup at about 32. I literally stick to exactly what I was shown how to do by a Trish McEvoy consultant and wear the Trish products. This video inspired me to branch out – I will be looking into these products, especially what you used to contour your face. Looks gorgeous!!

    Love the video, thanks Jordan! Also, I love your bed set, bedding and pillows! Where did you get them? I am looking for redoing our bedroom and love the simple cute decor you have! Thank you in advance 😉
