Be sure to pack a compact mirror and the lipstick you’re wearing for the evening — you’ll want to touch up after eating or drinking. For a completely kissable sheer lip tint, try COVERGIRL LipPerfection Jumbo Gloss Balm in a classic cherry or exotic plum shade. This coverage is buildable, which is perfect for touch ups.


Before leaving dinner, freshen up with a perfume-filled roller ball pen. Lightly put the fragrance on the inside of your wrists and the nape of your neck. If you don’t have a pen, you can always ask your department store for a small sample that will fit in your bag.
