It’s that time of year again when love is in the air. Valentine’s Day is a great time to celebrate with your partner or closest friends and show them how much you care. But, with kids to take care of, dogs to walk, and work to keep up with, it can be hard to navigate planning a great date night. Just remember, you don’t need to go completely glam to look your best on Valentine’s Day—instead, celebrate the beauty that is you! The tips below take only a few minutes and will ensure you look your best for that special celebration.
- Always carry a BB cream.
BB Creams—like our multitasking 5-in-1 YOUTH® Activating BB Cream—are a great item to throw in your purse or keep in your car “just in case.” Formulated with vitamins and nutrients to even skin tone, correct discoloration, and nourish your skin, a quick application will have you looking radiant for your special someone. You can also use a shade or two lighter than your skin tone to highlight and conceal, and a shade or two darker to contour. The seamless look that it creates is amazing.
- Enjoy a little pick-me-up.
If it’s the end of a long workday or you just got home from picking up the kids, you’ll want to re-energize for your special night out. Instead of coffee, which can cause sleep issues when consumed at night, try opting for an energizing tea to wake up your body and mind. Plus, the antioxidant power of tea offers additional health benefits your body will thank you for.
- Show off those gorgeous eyes.
As they say, a little bit of mascara equals a lotta bit of confidence. If you ask any woman what their go-to secret is for getting ready in under five minutes, they’ll almost always say mascara. It’s a great way to show off your lashes and make your eyes pop! Mascara is easy to carry anywhere—you can even apply it in the car just as you arrive at your date night restaurant for instant volume and definition.
- Splash, wash, and rinse.
Not so into wearing makeup? That’s okay! But whether you choose to go au naturel or wear makeup on a daily basis, it’s important to keep up with a good skincare routine. At the end of a busy day, it can be hard to remove all the toxins from our skin. Using a quick 3-in-1 Gel Oil Cleanser will ensure you’ll have clean, refreshed skin in plenty of time for your big date. You’ll not only look great, but you’ll feel more confident knowing your skin will stay fresh and glowing all night long.
So, whether you’re going on a date with your favorite Valentine or celebrating “Galentine’s” Day with your closest friends, don’t let a lengthy beauty routine make you late for the big event. Just follow these fast and easy tips to ensure you look and feel your best all night long.
