Mat and I have bi-weekly dates where we escape from our rambunctious 2-year-old, Noah, and have a relaxing night to ourselves. Date night gives us much needed alone time, but more importantly, it gives me another reason to dress up and show-off my favourite products!
A date outfit should make you feel sexy and confident but appear effortlessly put-together. Because dates can be super spontaneous, I love pairing pieces that can work for both day and night. I also tend to throw my hair in a loose messy bun, which adds to the whole “effortless but chic” vibe we’re aiming for. But regardless of what I wear, I always create a look that revolves around a bright coloured lip.
My go-to lip colour is Smashbox’s Be Legendary Long-Wear Lip Lacquer in Orange Crush. It gives me the high-impact colour I look for and has a velvety lacquer finish. Plus, it lasts throughout the whole night, so re-applying isn’t an issue (unless you’re planning on having steamy make-out sessions! or 4-course meals).
The lacquer enhances my lip shape and gives me the best pout ever. I have a smaller top lip, so a tip I’ve learned from Smashbox is to line the lips slightly above your natural lip line in order to create a fuller look. It looks amazing and my lips do a happy dance immediately after!
