Tata's Valentine's Date Night Look
This Valentines Day we’re doing things a little differently. We’re trading in our usual look for something a little bolder. Who best to partner with than our friends over at The Detox Market!
Merrady Wickes, Head of Content & Education for The Detox Market, gave Tata a gorgeous Valentines date night look with a twist, focusing on glimmering reds to accentuate her eyes and add an extra air of romance with red being the color of love. We know reds can be intimidating, especially shadows, but Merrady proves that there are subtle ways in which it elevates one’s look and spices things up for Valentine’s Day. Watch our full tutorial to see how Merrady gave Tata this gorgeous look, and follow these simple steps below.
Regenerating Cleanser. Merrady used our exfoliating cleanser on Tata’s dry skin to buff and smooth out the skin’s surface before applying makeup.
Resurfacing Mask. Layer this over the Regenerating Cleanser for our Glow Getter Facial which reveals smooth radiant skin! Merrady’s tip? Apply first, let Glow Getter do its magic, and then continue with eye makeup to save time and multitask! We will remove Glow Getter later on in the tutorial.
Sappho New Paradigm Eyeshadow. Merrady started with the color Deep Diane on Tata to provide a base before applying additional colored eyeshadow. It also works as an amazing brightener! “It’s a Vanilla shade every girl should own,” Merrady says about this Sappho eyeshadow color.
Rituel De Fille Ash and Ember Eye Soot. Merrady applied Viscera a gorgeous deep red shade of eyeshadow just along the lash line, buffing it out, as color and cornerstone of this look.
Sappho New Paradigm Eyeshadow. Merrady then goes in with the color Beckitt. The perfect crease shade!
Sappho New Paradigm Vegan Mascara. A quick curl of the lashes and the application of this mascara in Black make for an easy wide-eyed look!
Hynt Beauty Forte Eye Definition Eye Liner. Applying a bit of this eyeliner in little dots to the bottom lash lines eliminates the need for lower lash mascara.
Plume Nourish & Define Brow Pomade. Next Merrady used the color Golden Silk with its brow brush to give Tata gorgeous plush brows. Tata was loving this product because it not only defines but nourishes eyebrows!

Hydrating Floral Essence. A misting of this liquid hydrator to plump skin with Hyaluronic Acid before applying the next steps is a must.
Rejuvenating Serum. Layer onto skin with Hydrating Floral Essence for deeper product penetration. Don’t forget to give yourself a little facial massage here as well!
Restorative Eye Crème. Use this before concealer to plump and moisturize under eyes preventing concealer from caking and settling into fine lines.
Illuminating Moisturizer and Vapour Atmosphere Soft Focus Foundation. Merrady cocktailed shade 123 with our Illuminating Moisturiser for a sheer veil full of diamond dust glow that subtly evens out skin tone.
Hynt Flawless Blending Sponge. Use a sponge dampened with Hydrating Floral Essence to blot excess makeup and to push product deeper into the skin. Merrady’s secret to avoiding cakey face makeup!
Illuminating Eye Crème and Alima Pure Cream Concealer in Echo. Merrady used the same technique here as she did with the foundation. Mixing your skincare with your makeup gives you a little more control over coverage while also keeping your skin hydrated and glowing. She used the Alima Pure Allover Shadow Brush to apply this cocktail.
Very Popular.Tata’s favorite step! Merrady’s technique is to take the blush all the way up to your temples to really sculpt and define your cheekbones.
Very Highlighting. Applied to Tata’s Cheekbones, bridge of the nose, center of the forehead, sides of chin and cupid’s bow. Merrady also used a brush to add it to the inner corner of Tata’s eyes, brow bone and center of the eyelid for added highlight.
Hynt Finale Finishing Powder. With this super finely milled translucent powder, Merrady gently set Tata’s under eye concealer and T-zone.
Hydrating Floral Essence and Hynt Flawless Blending Sponge. Wet the sponge with Hydrating Floral Essence and press all over the face to set makeup in place, add freshness, while providing an extra boost of hydration.
