This weekend looks like a messy one, at least here in NYC. If your game plan is to Netflix and chill, nobody will judge. But for those of you who refuse to let a little slush keep you from getting out and doing date night, we’ve got some fresh ways to mix up your after-hours hair and makeup, thanks to your favorite celeb couples. Let’s recap their best recent date-night beauty moments, starting with Chrissy Teigen, who just last night wore the world’s prettiest braid and bronzy, lashy makeup (by Liz Castellanos) while attending a party at her go-to salon with hubby John Legend. We’re sure he was a fan. Those nude lips and coral cheeks kind of make us want to kiss her.



If whipping together a statement braid isn’t in your skill set and you’re more of a lazy-hair girl, no worries. Your date-night spirit animal is Gigi Hadid, who’s all about wearing super-high, messy ponytails when she goes out on the town with boyfriend Zayn Malik. When the two headed to West Hollywood hot spot the Nice Guy earlier this week, a pop of red on her lips gave her extra polish and flirty vibes, dressing up her athleisure ensemble.


Behati Prinsloo has also pulled from the perky-pony playbook when going to dinner with husband Adam Levine. Note how this one’s high placement plus plenty of strobing made the evening all about her cheekbones. Although what evening isn’t all about cheekbones when you’re Behati Prinsloo.


Then there’s Kate Hudson, who like Hadid just hit up the Nice Guy wearing a (rare for her) cherry-red lip. We don’t think she was actually on a date, but whatever, we’re still feeling lots of the date-night inspo from her look. It reminds us that even our most basic closet items—black sweater, high-waisted blue jeans—look crazy chic and sexy given the right beauty choices—here the lipstick plus bouncy curled hair and long nails (which also make our favorite boho Cali girl suddenly look like a Margot Robbie-caliber bombshell).


If all this has left you lamenting your lack of a go-to red lipstick color, no worries—just consult our guide to finally finding your perfect match. You’re welcome, and we hope it all gets kissed off at some point this weekend.
