There are a lot of things I used to have before kids and taking on blogging full time that have disappeared over the years - my patience, my eyebrows (like, seriously, where'd they go?), my white teeth (I blame this one on my 5:00AM wake up calls from my youngest and need for coffee to survive them), and probably the biggest one: sweet, precious free time.


That's why whenever my fiance and I have the rare chance to have alone time on a date night, I know I'm pulling out all the stops to switch up my look, and I’ll have about 20 minutes to do it before someone - usually the kids, sometimes the fiance - starts yellin'.




Today, I've partnered up with Colgate® Optic White® RADIANT™ Toothpaste to share with you my simple tutorial on how to take your daytime look to date night ready!


For my daytime makeup, I like to go for a youthful, natural, cover-the-fact-you-only-got-four-hours-of-sleep look and it usually consists of a BB cream, concealer and mascara. For date night, I really like to amp that up!


Step 1 - Clean up time. Oil blotting sheets are awesome for soaking up any excess oil from the day. A makeup remover-soaked cotton swab is another great way to clean up any "raccoon eyes" or lipstick gone rogue.


Step 2 - The foundation. I normally wear BB cream during the day, but for date night, I can take the coverage up a notch by simply adding another layer of BB cream! For concealer, I touch up any spots that might've been popping through and then set them with a setting powder so they don't move.




Step 3 - Bronze/Blush/Highlighter. During the day, I don't wear any of these so I can really start from scratch for my date night look. I like to take my bronzer first and apply with a fluffy brush onto my forehead, cheeks and down my neck in circular motions. Next, I take my blush and apply to just the apples of my cheeks for a flushed look. Lastly, using my finger, I'll apply my highlighter to the bridge and tip of my nose and cupids bow.




Step 4 - Va-va voom eyes! I normally wear mascara during the day so to incorporate it into my date look, I'll leave it but clean up any flakes or smudges. For this look, I decided I wanted a smokey brown eye with some sparkles! I first started with a clean base on my lid and then went in with a dark taupe shade into my crease. Next, I took a dark espresso brown and applied that onto my inner and outer v on my eyes and blended out. With my finger, I patted on some gold sparkles into the middle of my lid. Lastly, I applied that same dark taupe on my bottom lid and blended out. To really take this to the next level, I added some fun, piece-y false lashes!




Step 5 - Freshen up. By the time 7:00PM rolls around, my teeth need a brushin' - bad! When you rely on coffee to keep you going throughout the day, your teeth can suffer and lack that special radiance. I'm a huge fan of using Colgate® Optic White® RADIANT™ Toothpaste (morning and night) as it safely whitens the inside as well as the outside of your teeth and is completely safe for daily use.

Step 6 - Bold lips. With your bright smile, you need a bold lip that can keep up! I chose a dark red lip because I rarely get to wear them but a nude lip would look great with this as well!
