Date Night! After a ridiculously busy day your significant other has asked you out on an impromptu date. “See you in thirty,’ they say. Date night is here! You have JUST 30 minutes to get ready and you don’t want to keep him or her waiting!  Your girl has a quick tutorial to get you looking and feeling your best in 30 minutes or less!

If you’re life is anything like mine, you are probably splitting your day between work, household chores and the kids (or dogs in my case!). As excited as we are for date night we can feel tired and need a boost. “Let Your Healthy Out” with a delicious dose of Emergen-C! My personal favorite flavor is Cranberry Pomegranate. This fizzy drink is loaded with Vitamin C to provide a boost that you probably need at this point. Plus, it’s delicious. Sip your emergency and pull out your date night appropriate outfit. My go to just happens to be

Now that we have our energy up, it’s time to worry about hair and make up! Keep your makeup simple. Before you start any makeup, prep your lips and get them kiss worthy with your favorite lipbalm. My go to is ChapStick Total Hydration!  Its advanced nourishing formula with argan oil and avocado butter and rosehip oils gets even my dragon scale lips kiss worthy. Apply a light layer to your lips. Too much lip balm can actually make chapped lips worth.

Simple date night makeup highlights your natural features. Start with a clean, well moisturized  face. Use your favorite concealer and just touch up the areas that are problematic for you. Follow up with a light dusting of powder to set the foundation. I like to use a tinted powder that mimics the natural look of skin that way I don’t have to worry about spending time blending a liquid/cream foundation. I finish of my skin with a blush that gives me that naturally flushed look.

To complete my look I fill in my brows, add a light wash of slightly shimmery neutral shadow to my lids, smudge in a bit of smoky purple pencil liner (or the color of your choice) and some mascara. I tend to not go for a red, burgundy or deep vampy lips for date night. I usually just amp up my natural lip color. Instead of slathering my lips with a gloss, I apply a light layer of my ChapStick Total Hydration using my fingers to give me a slightly pouty glow.

Getting your hair ready can be tricky. My tip is to go for a quick messy bun or a sleek ponytail. Both hairstyles are easy to do and take almost no time. However, if you’re like me and prefer to wear your hair down, I create a bouncy wave using velcro rollers, my hair dryer and a little hairspray..

I wrap my entire head in velcro rollers of various sizes. This does not have to be exact because we are going to heat set the wave using your hair dryer on high. Blast your hair for two minutes making sure you’re getting all of the rollers nice and warm. Let hair cool completely. You can do this hair style before your makeup and after getting dressed. Giving your hair ample time to cool. Once your hair is cool carefully remove the hair rollers and fluff with your fingers. Set your look with a light hold hairspray. You can also do this hair style before your makeup and after getting dressed. Giving your hair ample time to cool.

Put on your favorite frock and voila: Date night ready! I toss my ChapStick Total Hydration, a powder compact and my lipstick into a little bag. I always make sure that I am carrying my pain medication of choice: Advil. The original round tablets providing safe, effective pain relief for over 25 years. I carry a little vial of Advil because you never know when you’re going to need it and it is better to be safe than sorry.

You can find all three of these items at your local Walmart. The Advil travel tubes are usually located at the checkout lanes. ChapStick and EmergenC are available in the Pharmaceutical section. You can find the ChapStick on specially marked end caps. EmergenC can be found in the Supplement Aisle and on special end cap displays.

This look didn’t cost me big bucks. I grabbed most of these items from my local Walmart. What are your go to looks for date night? Do you have a favorite drugstore product that is essential for your date night look? Let me know in the comments below.
