Question: How should I do my makeup for girls’ night out?
Answer: Every so often, it’s necessary to let loose with girlfriends and hit the town. A girls’ night is the perfect excuse to play with funky new products you might not ordinarily try out in your day-to-day makeup routine. The more glitz and glam, the better!
Apply your base makeup, beginning with a great primer and finishing with a loose powder. Prepping your skin before makeup application is such a vital step; you want to make sure that makeup lasts throughout the night. When it’s girls’ night out, don’t be afraid to wear a little more makeup than you normally would (translation: it’s time to break out that red lipstick that’s been collecting dust in your makeup bag)!
There are a number of products out there that will not only make you look fab, but will last all night long as well. Here are a few of our faves:
- Stila Stay All-Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner: Playing with funky hues of liquid eyeliner is a great way to spice up your eyes. This Stila eyeliner will last for hours without smudging. Swipe a line in indigo or turquoise along the upper lashes while creating a wing. A winged liner look in a bold funky color will make your eyes pop!
- Illamasqua False Eye Lashes: Girls’ night out and false lashes go together like margaritas and a good time. Illamaqua lashes come in a wide variety of lengths and colors. Pumping up the volume with lashes makes for a glamorous makeup look. New to falsies? Have a girlfriend help you apply.
- Marc Jacobs Beauty Tonight Lights Glitter Dust: Glitter, glitter, glitter. Need I say more? Those shimmery little specks attract the best type of attention. This Marc Jacobs Beauty dust feels luxurious on the skin, unlike some other scratchy glitter products. This glitter dust looks fantastic applied lightly on the cheekbones or all over on the eyelid.
The best part about hitting the town with your besties is making memories that’ll last a lifetime. Why not look flawless at the same time?
