Impulse True Love Make- Up Inspired Look

Hi guys . Happy Friday . Who else is excited it's weekend ? I had such a busy but fun and exciting week . 

Earlier this month I got some awesome Impulse fragrances from Rubybox with these pretty pastel make-up brushes - with a challenge to create a few fun make-up looks inspired by either Impulse True Love or Impulse Paris. I have a make-up look ready for both fragrances - but today I will share a little more on the Impulse True Love scent as well as my date night inspired make-up look.

Impulse True Love has such a soft girly scent - perfect for going out on a special date - be it dinner and a movie - coffee and chilling at home or a romantic dinner. The fragrance has notes of freesias , muguet and amber, The scent isn't overpowering strong - I feel this is such a perfect scent for everyday . (This scent is also guy friendly and won't be too strong of a scent to overpower your date)

"I hope to find a real love ....
That I will experience true romance .
True Love from Impulse inspires romantic reactions in men.
Live the real love you dreamed about "

The brushes were included to create a fun look -they are all very soft and did a great job of blending the shadows , combing my brows , and applying inner corner highlight. And they are pretty and pink and girly. A win all round. 

Now onto the products I used for my make-up look - some are trusty essentials I mentioned quite a few times on the blog and some are new favourites. When I have a date night I prefer to feel comfortable and have a more natural look .  ( My Paris inspired look will be a lot more glam and rock and roll inspired )

 As always , I started with my trusty Revlon Colorstay foundation for Normal / Dry skin. Again - I can't mention enough how much I love this foundation. I also love the Essence Colour Correcting concealer in Pastel Pink Wake Up effect - I love using this underneath the eyes to look more awake than I usually feel. Both of these are normal staples in my everyday routine. 
 Next up for eyes I use some of the Essence My Must Have Long lasting Eyeshadows. The three colours I used for my look is 04 Brownie Points (chocolate brown ) for my crease , 02 All I need all over my lid and 05 Cotton Candy in my Inner corner. Again I have mentioned these eyeshadows before on the blog too . 

I combed my brows , and applied Benefit Ka-Brow on my eyebrows. A little Essence Maximum Definition (one of my new favourite mascara's ) and the eyes were done and dusted. Again , no surprise here for picking some true favourites for this make-up look. 

Next up was Avon True Colour Blush Beads. I recently fell in love with this gorgeous blush - it gives such a perfect touch of colour to your cheeks without turning into a clown. The colour is super flattering on my skin and it leaves your skin with a gorgeous healthy looking glow. 

I've finished my look of with one of my favourite lipglosses - Avon Perfect Pout. I mentioned this lipgloss in my April favourites - and I feel it's perfect date night colour - it looks super girly and it's pretty hydrating - so will keep your lips smooth and kissable. And if the colour fades you can easily apply this without needing a mirror - making it foolproof too. 

Onto the finished make-up look :
