Special Event Style – What I Wore

Thanks to Walgreens for underwriting this post. I was paid as a member of the Clever Girls Collective, but the content is all mine. Visit http://www.discoverbeautywithin.com/

So lovelies… How do you get ready for a special event?? 

My makeup and hair routine is pretty much the same for a big event as it is for everyday, just amped up a bit. I can honestly say all of the items I use cost less than $10 each (on the high end) and can be purchased at your local Walgreens or other drug store! 
One of my newest makeup loves is the Falsies Mascara! This stuff seriously takes your lashes from blah to WOW!! The eye on the right is before the mascara, the eye on the left is after. And that’s just one quick coat! Love it! 
For work I swipe a coat on each eye, and go with it. 
For a big night out, a couple of coats makes my eyes look more dramatic.
Another beauty product I’m loving is Aussie Mega Hair Spray
Unlike many other kinds, it smells nice and holds those curls, or straightened strands, without weighing down your locks. 
For a night out on the town you definitely want all that hard work you did on your hairdo to last!
Right now Walgreens has a special March promotion going on! 
Get that pretty red clutch for FREE when you spend $10 or more on any two Dove, Nexxus, Suave or TRESemme hair products! I actually use Dove Shampoo and Conditioner myself, so this is a great time to stock up!! 
Visit Discover Beauty Within for more details.
I think that lovely clutch would go perfect with my red, special event dress, don’t you!?! I also tend to think Kayli and I clean up nice! 😉

So, tell me, what are some of your favorite beauty products??

I’m always up for trying something new!

Happy shopping lovelies!!

Linking this to these FUN parties! Hope to see you there!!!
