I love date night for two reasons - it's a great excuse to wear a short dress and flirt with my husband.
Exhibit A: Short Dress
I've been all about short dresses so far this spring. I used to think I was too old or too heavy to wear a short dress...no idea why. But I'm breaking out of that frame of mind, in a big way. I'm also all about nude sandals with those short dresses because they make my legs look extra long.
Exhibit B: Flirty Makeup (no way Dan can resist this!)
In addition to a gardenia-inspired headband, I pulled out a new shade of eyeshadow to create an easy smokey eye. I primed my eyelid, which is a really important step when wearing massive amounts of dark eyeshadow. Then I patted a peacock green shade on my lower lid, right up to the brow bone. I blended the green shadow just a little over that brow bone, then dusted a pale taupe over my entire lid to diffuse the color a little. I lined my upper and lower lashlines, the followed up with two coats of mascara. Though a smokey eye often sounds intimidating, this one was so easy. I was out the door and on my way to dinner in less than 10 minutes.
