It's been unseasonably warm for November. I haven't started complaining about the weather like I usually do this time of year, but don't worry—cold, snowy days are coming, along with all my posts about how much I dislike the weather.
Even though there is no snow on the ground, I miss summer. I miss the carefree days and wearing nothing but flip flops and a little dress. I miss staying out late at night, on a patio, with family and friends, and I miss evenings at the park with my boys.
Now that November is here, it's complete darkness by 4:30 p.m. and I'm finding it difficult to stay upbeat, so last week, I got ready to go out with my girlfriend for a night out. Sometimes, all you need is an excuse to get dressed up, put on your favourite lipstick, listen to some music, and laugh the night away with friends.
I'm telling you—make-up and a night out with good friends is an excellent way to not let the colder weather and shorter days bring you down.
My go-to lipstick right now is by COVERGIRL. I love wearing Colorlicious lipstick in Enchantress Blush and Bombshell Pink. Both these shades of pink are my favourite. I love wearing Enchantress Pink during the day and Bombshell Pink at night. And paired with a smoky eye? Perfection!
Getting ready to go out is half the fun, whether you're going out with your hubby or friends. Turn up the music as you're getting ready, (Katy Perry!) pick out your favourite little black dress, and wear your favourite COVERGIRL lipstick to complete your look. (Skinny jeans, sexy boots, and a cute top will work, too.) I love that COVERGIRL'S Colorlicious lipstick has a colour to match every outfit and mood, with four different colour families to choose from: nudes, reds, pinks, and plums.
No matter what you're doing this November, make sure to take some time out for you before holiday craziness begins. All you need is the right shade of lipstick and you'll be ready to dance and laugh the night away.
P.S. Stay tuned for a great P&G beauty giveaway coming your way, just in time for the festive season!
