Finally started seeing someone new but self-isolation has put a bit of a pause on things? Or, you’re isolating in a separate place to your SO? Video call dating has become the new norm and today we’re delivering the ultimate Facetime date checklist full of all the beauty bargains you could need to achieve that natural glow at-home look… 

Blackhead Clearing Fizz Mask, £19.50, Dermalogica

Step one: It’s face mask time

First up, is a little pamper time post-shower with a bit of self-care skincare. This unique mask’s active fizzing formula effectively cleans pores and helps target blackheads. The technology inside activates upon application, helping to open pores, decongest skin and facilitation blackhead extractions. Sulphur provides anti-microbial benefits to help keep skin clear, Kaolin Clay absorbs excess oil and purifies the skin while Apple Fruit Extract helps to maintain hydration.

Renewed Hope Water Cream, £29.95, Philosophy

Step two: A lick of moisture

The brand philosophy creates so many luscious skincare formulas and this lightweight water cream of theirs is a must-have in your collection. The fast-absorbing texture of this innovative cream replenishes parched skin by increasing hydration levels +86% and delivering a cool burst of 72-hour hydration. If after a soak in the bath or a nice hot shower, you find your cheeks just won’t cool down, this is the perfect product to ensure a lovely smooth, cooling base under your makeup before the big call.

BB Cream, £9.95, NOTE

Step three: One subtle and luminous base

I know, I know, when it comes to makeup while you’re stuck at home, you’d think that rarely anyone is making the effort to be looking even more beautiful than they naturally are but why not add a little something for the camera? After all, you’re going on a date via Facetime so why not feel and look your best? This BB Cream by NOTE cosmetics offers medium coverage with citrus and grape extracts to give your skin that added boost of rejuvenation.

PRO Sculpt and Glow Face Palette, £9.99, LaRoc

Step four: Add that out-in-the-garden glow

To add to that oh so sultry base, try this sculpt and glow palette formed of gorgeous golden bronzers, bright blushers and silky highlights. Featuring the buttery-est of formulas, this palette is a go-to and it will be great to whip out in summer when we’re all finally free! For now, it’s a great addition to top off your base ready for your Facetime date.

Brows Collection, £10.50, Viva La Diva

Step five: Frame your gorgeous face

Of course, let’s not forget the ultimate way to add that model-like structure to the face. It’s time for some brow powered action. This brow kit by Viva La Diva features a complete eyebrow collection of brown shades, light to dark with paler shadows to apply underneath to give your that lift you’ve been craving. It also comes with tweezers and an application brush too, how great!

So Kiss Me Lipstick & Liner Set, £9.95, SOSU by SJ

Step 6: A final touch of colour

Last but not least, lipstick. Adding a lip colour really makes a difference. When it comes to Facetime dates, I think it’s safe to say we’re all trying to build on that natural glow rather than go for that heavy-duty evening out look. Playing around with different shades of nudes is always your best bet to finally find that ‘my lip colour but better’ shade to let your subtle blusher pop and your highlight glow keeping the attention on your sultry, luminous base.
