Whether you’re going on a first date, a valentine’s night out, or a wedding anniversary, you can ramp up the sexy factor with some playful eye makeup. Here’s how to do eye makeup for two sexy date night looks. Pick either the cat eye or the gold smokey eye.
Obviously this look is all about the eyeliner. The classic cat eye is usually done with black liquid liner, but there are variations depending on what’s easier for you.
- Liquid Liner
The easiest way to use liquid liner is to buy a liquid liner pen. Using a pen is already a natural movement. Now instead of scribbling on a notepad you’re drawing an elegant swooping line. Start from the outside and draw in. Make the liner thicker on the wing, and thinner as you draw towards your inner eye.
- Cream Liner
To use cream liner you’ll need a liner brush. The easiest brush to use is an angled liner brush. This will help to facilitate the winged line. When picking up the cream product start with a very little bit of product. In fact, wipe a little bit of product off before applying. You can go on top with a bit more if needed, but it’s always hard to wipe off.

- Powder Eyeliner
This isn’t the most popular product out there. But I feel it’s much easier to use for anyone that has a wobbly hand or is new to a cat eye. Some ladies just like the matte look that powder gives. Again, use an angled liner brush and start at the outside of the wing and bring the line in, tapering as you move towards the inner eye. Most powder eyeliners can be used wet or dry. If using wet, wet the brush instead of the powder so it doesn’t get too messy.

Pair your cat eye with a nude eyeshadow that sweeps all over the lid and up onto the brow bone. You can choose a red lip or nude lip.
Next choice for your sexy date night makeup is gold and bold.
Gold Smokey Eye
This look is very similar to a traditional smokey eye. Instead you’re going to pick out some metallic eyeshadows. Use the a nude or very pale gold under the brow. Choose a medium gold or bronze to apply all over the lid. Then pick out a deeper shadow for the crease and outer lid. Blend and blend and blend, then finish with a brown kohl pencil to line the top and bottom lash line.
