INIKA Organic our complete guide to a sultry eye makeup look blog

Achieving the perfect date night makeup can be difficult, so we’re sharing our tips for date night makeup. This look not only oozes date night, but also includes our organic eye makeup (suitable for sensitive eyes!) and features lots of ingredients that have beneficial properties for your skin and contains no synthetic materials.

Here’s how to achieve the perfect date night eye makeup in 5 easy steps:

#1 Perfect your base

When you’re planning your makeup, always start with the base. Start with one to two pumps of our Certified Organic Liquid Foundation and one pump of Radiant Glow Veil, and blend them together with the INIKA Foundation Brush to achieve that perfect “naturally glowy” foundation look.

The INIKA Liquid Foundation is one of the best foundations with Hyaluronic Acid - backed by amazing hydration benefits. Not only does it help with keeping the skin hydrated, it’s also proven to help improve skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of fine lines. Add that to the amazing nourishing and highlighting properties of the INIKA Radiant Glow Veil, and you’ve got the perfect date night foundation for any skin type!

Top Tip: To make your foundation look natural, slowly sweep and buff the foundation over the skin until it has been blended evenly over the skin.

#2 Our secret concealer trick

Once you have created the perfect makeup base, it’s time to add a touch of full coverage concealer wherever your skin needs some help. For you, this could be under the eyes to conceal dark circles, or on any blemishes you’d like to conceal.

But it’s not the only way we use concealers! We also like to use concealer as eye makeup primer, to make sure your eyeshadow stays on all night long. Simply dab our Full Coverage Concealer with your fingers over the entirety of your eyelids, up to the brow bone. That will create a smooth base for your eyeshadow.

Our concealer is enriched with hydrating ingredients such as Certified Organic Sunflower Seed Oil, Sweet Almond Oil and Shea Butter, for long-lasting moisturising benefits. It’s also perfect for ageing skin, as it doesn’t sink into your fine lines and creases!

#3 Master the smokey eyeshadow look

Next up is the most crucial step for a sultry eye makeup look: smokey eyeshadow! For the perfect smokey eye look, sweep our Loose Mineral Eyeshadow in Copper Crush across the lid using our eyeshadow Blending Brush. Then, continue blending over to the outer corner of the eye, creating depth and a smokey eye effect.

Our mineral eyeshadow is suitable for sensitive eyes and has a buildable formula so you can easily achieve the perfect smokey eye. Thanks to its highly-pigmented formula and paired with your eyeshadow primer, its beautiful rose gold shade is sure to last all night.

Top Tip: Get creative with the eyeshadow colour! If our Copper Crush shade isn’t your style, our Loose Mineral Eyeshadow comes in 18 different shades that you can experiment with.

#4 Smudge your eye pencil

It’s time to add some eyeliner! Taking the Organic Eye Pencil in Coco, glide the tip of the eye pencil across the top of the lash line to add some definition and depth to your look, and follow with the lower waterline. Lightly smudge the eye pencil on the lower waterline to create the perfect brown smokey eye effect.

Thanks to its soft and creamy consistency, our natural eye pencil is easy to smudge to complete that effortless smokey eye look, and its rich natural pigments have an amazing colour payoff. Plus, our eye pencil is formulated with Certified Organic Coconut Oil for ultra comfortable wear - making it a great eye pencil for sensitive eyes!

#5 Add the final - a lengthening mascara

Finally, complete the look by applying two coats of our Long Lash Mascara in Black to the lashes. As one the best vegan mascaras ever, it will add volume and definition to your lashes while its hydrating ingredients - like Magnolia Bark Extract and Vitamin E, to name a few - will nourish and protect your lashes.
