It's hard to believe that my husband and I have been married over two years already. One thing that we decided early in our marriage was to continue to have date night. Even one of our gifts during my bridal party was movie tickets because my co-worker wanted us to remember how important date night is. So, my husband and I devote ourselves to having at least one date night a month. We typically like to enjoy dinner and a movie, but sometimes our date nights aren't the typical. Like, this past Sunday, we enjoyed listening to Grandmaster Flash at the National Folk Festival. Either way, when it comes to date night, I am sharing super budget-friendly ways to be fashionable and fabulous!
Whether you've been planning date night all week or it's a spontaneous decision, these five budget-friendly tips will have you ready in no time!
Five Budget-Friendly Ways to Get Fashionable For Date Night
1. Get your skin together. Throw on a beauty mask!
One thing I love about beauty masks is that they refresh your skin in a short period of time. Most masks only take 10-20 minutes to do the job. Before applying makeup, take a moment to wash your face and then apply your favorite mask. A moisturizing mask would be ideal so your skin will be plump and moisturized for makeup application. Formula 10.0.6 Get Your Glow On is perfect!
2. Freshen up with Cottonelle.
If you have had a long day before date night, take a moment to get freshened up for you boo with Cottonelle®. Cottonelle® with CleanRipple® Texture is designed to clean better, so you’re clean & confident enough to go commando. Plus, Cottonelle® keeps you clean so you can feel confident enough to strut your stuff, whether down the runway, the red carpet or the city streets. Cottonelle® also has flushable wipes that are easy to use and even come with a push to open container. If you're in a rush, the wipes are the perfect way to add freshness to your bum before changing your clothes.
3. Shop your closet girl!
When it comes to going out, it's easy to think that you have to run to the store to grab something new to wear. Save money by visiting Pinterest and recreating a look with clothes you already own! Shopping your closet helps not only save money, but put your clothes to good use. One of my fashion must-haves for date night is a sexy dress or high waisted jeans. Check your closet and see what you can create!
4. Add some color to your nails.
You're almost ready! After finding a fabulous outfit to wear, add a splash of color to your nails. Since we're approaching fall, try a dark color or one of my all-time favorites, white. The polish will have your hands looking fancy and cute. SinfulColors has super affordable nail polishes that are long lasting. You can find them at your local drugstore. All the more reason for you and your boo to hold hands.
5. Throw on lipstick and you're ready!
Before stepping out of the door, throw on your lipstick. Be spontaneous and throw on a new color. It will add some spice to your look. If you're looking for a new color, check out Wet 'n Wild in your local drugstore. They have lip colors for under $5. Now you are fabulous and fashionably ready to enjoy your much deserved date night!
