When you become a parent, date night can seem like a thing of the past. I’ll be honest, between blogging, Zara’s schedule, and trying to keep myself together, having a bit of fun with the hubby usual resorts to just binge watching Netflix and relaxing on the couch. Recently, we’ve made a conscious decision to date each other again. I know, I know it doesn’t exactly sound revolutionary, but hey marriage takes serious effort! So naturally, when he takes me out I’m going to make a huge deal about it and get as cute as possible.
As a mother, there’s nothing I cherish more as ‘me-time’ than when I have time to get fully ready. It honestly feels like a treat to myself! My everyday makeup look usually consists of a neutral-toned eye and a terracotta hue on my lips, but I turned it up a notch for this occasion with the new Just Peachy Matte Eyeshadow Palette by Too Faced.
Yes, I know they say beauty comes from within. And it totally does! But there’s nothing wrong with wanting to spruce yourself up. Today, I’m sharing a simple and easy 5 Minute Peachy Eye in a few quick steps that I promise any mama can master!
Step 1: Primer. This step is essential to making any look last as long possible, because it’s literally the glue that keeps your shadow in place and prevents it from creasing (even on the hottest days!). The Shadow Insurance is guaranteed to help keep yours in check and since it goes on clear, it won’t distort any of the shades you use on your lids.
Step 2: Shadow. Okay, I know eye shadow can be intimidating sometimes but once you get the hang of it it becomes second nature. My first piece of advice for anyone trying a new look with eyeshadow or just trying it out in general is to just find shades that are appropriate for your eye shape and your skin tone. Since I have a warmer skin tone I can’t slap blue or black on and feel alright about it. I tend to go for warmer neutrals, which is why I love the Just Peachy Matte Eyeshadow palette. It’s soft, velvety and it really allows you to build the shade as dark or light as you want! One of the most important things to remember is to blend properly. This will assure that you look hashtag flawless!
Step 3: Mascara. If they eyes are the window to your soul, then your eyelashes are the drapes, girl! Mascara is truly one of the beauty products I simply cannot live without. Even when I’m going for the no-makeup makeup look, mascara is a staple! Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara is so perfect for thickening and making my lashes nice and thick!
- Here’s a tip: when layering, make sure your previous layer is dry to prevent spider lashes!
Long story short, you’ll look absolutely stunning for this date night and I’m sure he won’t be able to take his eyes off you. Now go and enjoy a night out with your honey, because you deserve it! This palette is exclusive only at the Sephora In JCPenney!
