Getting ready for date night can sometimes be stressful especially for women.
You have to pick the right OOTD and the accessories to match with it.
What makeup to put on is also part of the equation. The entire "process" can be tedious that getting ready for a date sometimes takes longer than the date itself!
You don’t have to stress yourself out, though.
“Less is more,” says the adage, and this is something that ABS-CBN actress Maxene Magalona puts to heart every time she goes on a romantic date with fiancé Rob Mananquil.
In an exclusive interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) at the culminating dinner of travel app Klook's launch in Puerto Princesa, Palawan, last September 24, the 30-year-old Kapamilya actress shared her go-to makeup look for date nights.
According to Maxene, she always considers what Rob likes on her every time they go out on a date or when they travel.
"I always like to put the kind of makeup that Rob likes," Maxx told PEP.
"Yung napapansin ko kasi, when he likes my makeup, he's like, 'O, baby I really like your look today.'
"He's very appreciative kasi so I take note of that."
KEEPING IT SIMPLE. Rob prefers a barely-there makeup look on Maxx.
The actress elaborated, "Usually, what he likes is something fresh, something natural looking.
"He really likes, which is also my favorite, nude lips, natural-looking eye shadow, something na hindi masyado heavy."
Dark, edgy makeup is Rob's least favorite makeup look on his fiancée, but Maxx said she still goes for it every once in a while.
She added, "He doesn't like dark lipstick on me.
"I still do it sometimes when we go to events, but for date night, that's what I like to put on—fresh and natural-looking lang."
Maxx is currently obsessing over nude lipsticks. Below are some of her favorites:
