Valentine’s day is coming up which means its time for the ultimate date night! I love getting dressed up with my husband Marc, going out to dinner and going for cocktails afterward. My husband is a little more simplistic in his desires for how to celebrate valentines day. He’s happy if I’m happy. Over the last 14 years of being together we have taken turns planning our V-day. We both love food and drinks as much as the other , so picking a fancy place to sit together for a while and talking over some of the best wine and food is a super enjoyable night for us.
We aren’t big gift givers on valentine’s day, but he always picks up a pretty bouquet of flowers (which he knows is my favorite) and I try to make sure he has a bottle of his favorite bourbon . We sip on that as we get ready.
Marc is really big on style and always looks fabulous. I love to focus on my makeup and I enjoy taking some time to pamper myself . I do ALL the steps, not just my quick 5 minute foundation, mascara, bronzer and lipgloss routine. Im talking , highlighting , contouring, wing liner and best part , a fabulous statement lip color.
Lately I’ve been really into these Ultra Matte lip colors from Colour Pop Cosmetics. Im not sure about your man, but mine hates getting lipstick on him (and we are always trying each others cocktails/wine at dinner) so having a matte , stay put for hours, no transfer lip color like these is a must for Valentine’s day .
It lasts so long that by the end of the night when you are slipping into something extra special, like these matching bra and panty sets from Adore Me , you will be sure that your makeup is still looking fabulous.
You could even coordinate your lip color to compliment your sexy lingerie! I found these combinations that I think are extra pretty .
Best part is , when you are shopping for lingerie to wow him ,you can also pick yourself up something that you can use regularly in your makeup kit. Win win!
