Night Out- makeup and what's in my bag

Thursday, May 7, 2015

I went out for a fundraising dinner last week to support a local food pantry with some co-workers, so I thought I'd share with you the makeup look I went for and what I took in my clutch! I wore a simple black peplum dress, so I wanted a pop of color with my makeup. I'm not much of a bold lip gal, but I figured I'd just go for it with a bright orange-red lipstick paired with a simple winged liner. I'm completely in love with both the color, In Love With Ginger, and the formula of this Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick. It's very hydrating, easy to apply, and lasts for hours- even through dinner and drinks! For a drugstore lipstick, I was impressed.

When I'm packing up an evening clutch, I want to be pretty minimal, but still have what I might need throughout the night. It was still pretty sunny when I left my house, so I grabbed my RayBan wayfarers on my way out. Car keys, house key, and my ID are always needed, but I also like to have both a credit card and some cash with me at all times.  A mini rollerball perfume is easy to throw in, just in case I need a scent savior- I took the Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black (my fave). I also like to include a small lotion, just in case there are any dry spots that pop up on my arms and legs, 'cuz that's never cute. I opted for the Tocca Cleopatra cream, since I love the grapefruit scent, and the name is just too fabulous! Of course no clutch would be complete without the lip color of the night and a balm, in case my lips start to feel dry. I always carry the Vaseline mini tub with me wherever I go.
