As mothers I find we often put the needs of our children before ourselves. We are busy, and honestly that luxury of a few moments alone is often rather spent sleeping, reading, or just going to the bathroom by yourself. Its not that we don’t deserve it but more that it becomes less important on the priority list. Who is really going to see you? The toddlers? They don’t care.
Your hot date might care. When it comes to a night out, whether it is with girlfriends or with your husband / boyfriend / blind date, you want to feel your best.
I decided to work on a new night time look. I needed to get a new face primer, so I meandered a bit to find what was new and exciting in my makeup aisle. To savor my kid free time I quickly ran to my community Shoppers Drug Mart. Mine has an entire aisle filled with the fancy makeup. I was there only a few seconds before someone helped me, and offered to show me some new looks. HALLELUJAH!
Here is my before and after. Your welcome for that amazing picture of me. Here is how I accomplished looking so decent (haha) and my date night makeup:
1. Cleanse. I used the Clairins toner.
2. Prime – I tried out the Lise Water in green to even out my redness, but I really like the smashbox version as well.
3. Cheek highlighter, Foundation – I used the Lingerie De Peau because I liked the name for a date night look. Eye Primer.
4, 5, 6. Three colors on my eyes, with the lightest going on my lid and right below my brow for more open looking eyes.
7. Lash primer
8. Ready for a date!
Here are all the products that I used.
What is your go to look for a date night out? Or better yet, what is your favorite beauty product?
