The lovely Rodial team sent me a selection of gorgeous products to try out for their #RodialDateNight campaign and wow, was I impressed! I believe for a first date, your look should be natural but glowing, so a man can see you for who you are, without hiding behind harsh bold colours. So for my date night look, I've gone for natural blushed cheeks, shimmer highlights and plump shiny lips. I've also curled my hair as it justs adds a bit more fun and girliness to your look, which I've kept in place with the Richard Ward Anti-Ageing Argan Hairspray. Have a read of my reviews below to help you achieve the #RodialDateNight look!
Hyaluronic Cheek Sculpt, £24, buy here
This is my favourite product of the selection - one I will be using every single day. Before now I have only ever used powder blushes because really, it was all I knew. I'd tried a few cheek stains and various alternatives before but they never seemed to give the same natural affect that I was looking for. But the Hyaluronic Cheek Sculpt is my new best friend. It comes in a pump form and is simply applied with your fingertips, to the apples of your cheeks and blended in. You can use as little or as much as you like. I absolutely love the natural glowing finish it gives to my cheeks.
Instaglam Compact Deluxe Illuminating Powder, £52, buy here
I love a shimmery finish to my make-up, particularly on an evening. The illuminating powder is applied with a brush over particular areas to reflect light and define facial features. It adds a girly, flirty feeling to your look.
Instaglam Magic Pen, £22, buy here
The magic pen works as a concealer and is what I can best describe as a chunky pencil. It's super easy to apply and can be blended in using the fingertips. I applied it to the under eye area and it provided high-coverage that I was comfortable with. Would highly recommend as a daily concealer that lasts all day.
Glamolash Mascara Skinny, £24, buy here
Being totally honest this wasn't my favourite mascara of all time. Personally, I like strong, long lashes but I feel this mascara was a little subtle for me. Saying that, it has a lovely light-weight wand and creates a natural flutter, perfect for girls who prefer a toned down natural look.
Glamstick - Wet, £25, buy here
The gorgeous Glamstick is a tinted lip butter, enriched with Hyaluronic Acid Spheres, designed to provide instant moisturisation and a long term plumping effect. I would definitely agree with the description - my lips felt super soft and moisturised which I found lasted hours! It also created a natural tint and shine to the lips, perfect for every day. The Glamstick's ingredients include cocoa butter and Vitamin E, so you can definitely expect nourished, healthy lips from this one. It comes in various colours - click on the 'buy here' link to take a look.
