In case you missed the announcement last week, I’m excited to be collaborating with Ginny of My New Favorite Outfit on a new series and link up called Head-to-Toe Chic! This will be a monthly beauty and fashion series and linkup, held on the last Thursday of every month and showcasing five of our favorite fashion/beauty products and/or looks based on a particular theme.
As February’s theme is “Date Night Essentials,” and given that I’m a
recovering beauty addict, I’m sharing five of my date night beauty essentials with you today!
Date Night Beauty Essentials
1. Glossy Lips
I prefer balm or gloss for date night over lipstick (and so does my hubby) and DiorAddict Lip Glow is the perfect combination of sheer color and shine. It’s a balm, so it softens and moisturizes the lips without being sticky – no guy wants a sticky smooch! And it provides just enough pigmentation to shade the lips a pretty pink while still remaining sheer and shiny.
2. Rosy Glow
I love gel or cream blushes for date night because they give more of a natural finish than powder blushes. One of my favorites at the moment is Tarte Cheek Stain in Flush. It’s a sheer berry stain that looks good on everyone and gives the cheeks a natural looking, healthy flush.
Ok, I’m a mascara and lipgloss girl as you can see. But I just think there’s something so flirty, and even hypnotizing if you will, about long, plush lashes. He’ll be like putty in your hands. My fave, Diorshow Mascara, builds up tons of volume without clumping, so the result is plush, perfectly separated lashes.
4. Mac Fix+
My Mac Fix+ is an essential to me if I’m using foundation and powder. It’s a finishing spray (with many other glorious uses, but that’s for another post), and it’s amazing for removing any trace of cakiness or powder build up, and leaves makeup looking fresh. A light once-over with this spray after your makeup is complete is all you need.
Spritz your fragrance into the air and then walk through it. It’ll cover you in the gentlest way, so he has to get in close to pick up the scent. Roses de Chloe is such a pretty, romantic scent.
