Date Night Glam Pamper/Makeup Routine

Dev and I escaped to Niagara Falls for a little relaxing getaway this weekend. We had such a great time and I didn't want the days to end. We treated ourselves to a fancy dinner at AG Inspired Cuisine, which is recognized as one of the best restaurants in Canada. It was fun to dress up, wear a little more makeup than normal and feel extra special for the night. I thought I would share with you how I got ready.


On special occasions, I like to take my time getting ready and do a couple more steps than normal. After all, a little pamper session can do wonders to help a gal feel relaxed, rejuvenated and increase confidence.

I really like the Sephora Collection Eye Masks because there are a wide variety of benefits and each one is infused with different ingredients to plump and brighten the under eye area. Plus, they're basically gigantic and cover every contour, delivering maximum penetration of the ingredients. After 15 minutes, I'll remove the pads and gently massage the remaining product into my skin. My dark circles are deflated, I feel much more awake, and I'm prepped for a smooth application of makeup.


For makeup, I again took a couple of extra steps and used more products than I would on a day-to-day basis to achieve this date night glam look...because why the heck not?!

I used small pieces of scotch tape angled from my lower lashes up to the tail of my brow for eyeshadow. Once peeled away, it creates a nice clean line and acts as a guide to create a perfect liquid eyeliner flick. I used a combination of rosy-mauve, matte shadows in my crease and applied a shimmery olive hue in the outer thirds of my lids for a smokey effect. Of course, a glam look is not complete without contouring and a shower of highlight! I basically doused myself in Mac Soft and Gentle. If I had brought a pair of false eyelashes with me, I would have definitely popped those on too.


Ps. I highly recommend you check out the Sterling Inn & Spa next time you're looking for a place to stay in Niagara Falls. It's just a short distance from Clifton Hill and doesn't look like much on the outside, but I assure you it's fantastic on the inside! It's one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. Each room is unusually spacious and no two rooms look the same. The king size bed is a dream and the fireplace keeps you cozy during colder months. The complimentary breakfast in bed completes the experience with a tray full of delicious goodies including hand-pressed coffee, fresh croissants with whipped butter and Chef prepared granola and yogurt. It's the perfect place for a romantic getaway.
