Valentine’s Day is tomorrow! Are you getting all dolled up and going someplace special? My hubby and I will be going out on Saturday night which means I’ll be putting on some make up and maybe even ironing my clothes (which I never do).

When I say put make up on, I don’t mean caked on.  It’s just that I typically only really wear eyeliner, lipstick and occasionally put some blush on.  When I have an event to go to, that’s when the Mascara & Powdered foundation come out!

This Valentine’s Day, I’ll be using Neutrogena® Healthy Volume® Mascara because it conditions and volumizes your lashes.  Plus, there are no clumps, smudging or flaking to worry about AND it even gets the small lashes that too often can’t be reached.  The brush is no joke!

Even though we’re married with kids, who seem to get grossed out every time we smooch, they won’t be with us on date night so I’ll finish off the look with kissable lips, thanks to Neutrogena® MoistureSmooth Color Sticks. It instantly moisturize lips and then conditions them.  They’re made with fruit extracts, mango and shea butter so it glides on to your lips easily.
