“Ladies look here, when you been with your man for a long time , every now and then you gotta go back in the closet and pull out that freakum dress” – Beyoncé

You don’t need to wear a freakum dress on every date, but you should look your best. Here is a simple look I put together for a recent dinner date with PJ.

Before you apply any makeup be sure you’re face is clean and moisturized. I start off with a primer so my makeup will last throughout the evening. I do a little color correction under my eyes and follow that up with concealer. After applying concealer I use a dime size amount of foundation, and build upon that depending on how much coverage is needed. I set with setting powder and move on to the eyes.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, UrbanDecay Primer, NYX Matte Black Liquid Liner, BH Cosmetics 120 Color Eyeshadow Palette

I usually keep my eyes neutral if I play to do a dark lip. I love the BH Cosmetics palette because it gives me a variety of colors to choose from and for a great price. I got mine from Amazon. I prime my eyelids before I apply the eyeshadow for the same reason as before. After the apply the eyeshadow I follow up with mascara. I don’t use false lashes because I am terrible at putting them on. So, I use mascara that will give me a lot of volume which Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara is perfect for. I do my winged liner and that’s it for the eyes!


I swatched all the dark color lipstick I have and I settled on the purple on the far right. It is an Ulta brand liquid lip cream that I am not a huge fan of but it was the color I thought went best with the outfit.  I finished the look with a light contour, highlight, and finishing powder.
