Valentine's Day is right around the corner, and that means it's time to prepare for a special date night with your significant other. Here are three makeup essentials to bring on a date to look fresh and fabulous all night long:

Mattifying powder1. Mattifying powder

Mattifying powder is essential to combat shininess and oiliness, especially in the T-zone area of the face. To apply mattifying powder, so it doesn't look all cakey, tap a bit of it on a brush, and then gently press and sweep the mattifying powder along your forehead, nose, and chin. You'll look radiant all night long.

Eyelash glue2. Eyelash glue

False eyelashes can pop off in the inner corners of your eyes super easily. That's why you should always carry eyelash glue with you to be able to fix any false eyelash malfunctions. When the inner corner of your false eyelashes pops up, take the eyelash glue and tap it on the edge of the false eyelash, and then press it down. Allow the glue to dry for 20-to-30 seconds, and you are good to go!

Lipstick3. Lipstick

Let's face it -- lipstick fades throughout the night. To prevent that from happening, invest in a high-quality liquid lipstick that is kiss-proof. Reapply it throughout the night as needed to continue looking picture perfect.

Look flaming hot this Valentine's Day

Don't bring a ton of makeup with you on your date this Valentine's Day. Instead, stick with the basics -- mattifying powder, eyelash glue, and lipstick -- that are compact and easy to apply throughout the night.
