I do my makeup fancy for blog posts all of the time, but typically take it right off to do laundry in my pajama pants and no one ever sees it. But recently I had the pleasure of having a reason to keep on that fancy makeup AND get dressed up for a night out with my hubby. Even though we don’t get out much (unless it’s with our three little ones!) I do have a few outfit + makeup ideas that will never fail me when going into a dressy casual date night…
- LBD (little black dress) It might sound cliche, but you seriously will always look chic, sexy, and appropriate in one. Oh, and yes I included my Spanx Slim Cognitos in the shop post above because no dress is complete without some shape wear.
- FANCY JEWELRY (costume is totally ok!) So since your LBD might be a bit plain, it’s okay to jazz it up with some killer costume jewelry. I die for big shiny bracelets and/or earrings.
- SMOKEY EYE. Seriously one cannot go wrong for a night on the town when choosing to wear a smokey eye. Why do I usually choose this look? Because when I know I’m going to be eating, drinking, and chatting with people, I don’t want to have to worry about touching up a high maintenance bold lip. I’d rather wear a neutral no fuss lip with WOWZA look at my eyes look!
- STRAPPY HEELS. I always feel more confident in heels. They make you stand tall and instantly give your calves a mini workout which in turn makes your legs look hotter! I don’t wear them often since I’ve got kids to deal with, but when it’s just Scott and me, I know I’ve got him to hang on to if I need to balance myself because I chose super high heels:)
