It’s not often that I get a chance to head out for Girl’s Night Out, but whether it’s girls night out, date night or my recent trip to the Disney Social Media Moms conference sometimes I want just a little more style to my hair, makeup and fashion. However, I like to have my look more natural with just a little more “oomph” to certain attributes. Thanks to CoverGirl and P&G I found some inexpensive, quick and easy ways to get the look I want.
Disclosure: This is a sponsored post and review through SheSpeaks/P&G. However all opinions expressed are 100% my own and some products of my own were used to achieve the look posted.
When getting ready for a night out with friends, the husband or when I have a special meeting I like to go from my daily routine of pretty natural with just some powder, mascara and gloss to something with a little more color and emphasis, but I don’t want it to be “Oh my gosh, look Lisa’s wearing make up!”
First I start off with getting a smile that is white and bright. I drink tea and some soda (I know I shouldn’t) but since I do my smile can use a little help and Crest 3D White Strips 1 Hour Express does that in just about the time it takes me to get ready if I use the easy to use strips on my teeth right before I jump in the shower. Remove them before I walk out the door and I have a whiter, brighter smile. They are easy to apply and I don’t even notice them after a few minutes.
After a great shower using my favorite body wash, I head straight for the Secret Clinical Strength. After all this is Houston, TX and who knows how much help I may need staying cool as a cucumber but hopefully looking a whole lot “hotter.” It’s funny that this particular brand is what I received to review, because it was what I already owned, so I guess it’s no “secret” that it’s my personal favorite.
Next it’s time to add some gel and frizz control to my naturally curly hair if I’m going for the long and curly look or some straightener and curlers if I want something a little more sophisticated and smooth. With the joys of humid weather coming and going sometimes the curls are about all I have time for. Good thing that my makeup doesn’t take long!
After a good moisturizer (really important guys – and use one with a sunscreen) it’s time for some foundation and brightener. After that a good dusting of the Cover Girl TruBlend minerals. It wasn’t in my review package, but I just like using it and it leaves a nice natural, look on my skin with just a hint of glimmer.
Eyeliner has always been a trial for me. But of all the products I’ve tried to get the eyes just right I have to say that the CoverGirl Line Exact Liquid Liner is my very favorite. It was SO easy and well even I couldn’t mess this up. A touch of the CoverGirl FlamedOut Mascara and the eyes have it. I really liked the unique design of the brush on this mascara and how easy it was to apply.
I admit I like to have a nice nail look when I leave the house, so I usually do those in advance. All that was needed to keep then nails looking good was CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss . The girls wanted to get in on the fun so you get to see how well it holds up on the tough job of keeping two little girls nails looking good!
That’s about it – isn’t that easy! It doesn’t even take me the full hour to do my hair and make up. That’s good to hear because I’m a busy mom just like you and there is no way I can have a whole hour to myself. My Crest strips can come off a few minutes early or I can remove them right before I arrive wherever I am going.
That’s all it takes just a few items and here’s my look afterwards. Now, I’m no expert at selfies – but I gave it my best shot!
Now for my custom made dress and some pretty accessories and I’m ready for anything!
