Are you ready to glam up and turn heads on your next night out? Whether it’s a girls’ night or date night, getting ready is half the fun.
Some people can feel ready with a little bit of make-up and a great outfit, whilst others want to go all out with micro ring hair extensions and flawless make-up.
For the ones that are getting ready to go out, we’re sharing all the essentials you need to get ready for a night out.
Skincare Routine Before a Night Out
It’s always important to take care of your skin. But, it’s especially important to have a solid skincare routine before a night out.
A gentle cleanser is what you should be starting with. This will remove any dirt, oil, and makeup that has built up during the day. Once your face is clean, you’ll want to apply a toner. This gives you a burst of hydration (perfect for parched skin in summer).
Next, you’ll need to apply a serum or face oil. After applying the serum or oil, you’ll want to follow up with a moisturizer. This will help to seal in all of the goodness from the previous steps and keep your skin hydrated throughout the night.
Most people think that the first step of getting ready for a night out it starting with make-up, then hair, then the outfit. Whilst those are seen as the basics, you should never neglect your skin before leaving the house for a wild night.
You will thank your earlier self the next morning when your skin doesn’t look dry!
What to Wear: Choosing an Outfit
Consider what venue you will be going to. Fancy a bar or club? Think about what would suit that vibe better. Something different than if you were going to a restaurant.
Your personal style will make you feel confident. Bear that in mind when you are choosing your outfit. If you feel best in a little black dress, then go for it!
Makeup Tips for a Night Out
It’s okay to take your time with your make-up. However, you don’t have to do the whole contour and highlight steps if you think that you will still look as good with the staples.
First, start with a clean face. This will help your makeup go on more evenly and last longer.
Next, apply a primer to help your makeup stay in place and prevent any creasing or smudging. After that is done, it is time to focus on the eyes.
For a dramatic look, opt for a smoky eye. Start by applying a dark shadow to your lid and blend it up into the crease. You might want to add a lighter shade of shadow to the inner corner of your eye and under your brow bone. Finish off your eyes with some mascara and false lashes if desired.
For your cheeks, choose a glowing blush or bronzer to give you some extra radiance.
A bold lip color is the perfect finishing touch to any glam look. Just make sure to line and fill in your lips before applying lipstick or gloss so that the color lasts all night long.
Hair Styling Ideas
No matter the length of your hair, you can make it look brilliant for a night out.
Not good at styling your hair? Do you feel like it is always flat? We might just have the answers for you.
1. Start with clean, dry hair. This will help your style last longer and give you a better result overall.
2. Before styling your locks, you might want to run a blow dryer over it first. This will help to add volume and prevent frizz.
3. When choosing a hairstyle, consider your outfit and the event you’re attending. You want to make sure your hairstyle compliments your overall look.
4. Styling your hair yourself can be a bit tricky. Ask a friend (who is good at hair) to help you. They will be on hand to offer up some fool-proof tips.
5. Experimentation is fun! You don’t have to stick to the same style.
Accessories You Need for a Night Out
Accessorizing will help you pull your entire outfit together, so always remember that before you walk out the door.
First, a good clutch or handbag to carry all your essentials.
Don’t forget your footwear! A great pair of heels can truly make the outfit. But, if you are not comfortable, go for a lower heel or a wedge.
Don’t forget the finishing touches like jewelry and a scarf or wrap (important if it is cold).
Simple. Basic. Effective.
With the right preparations, getting ready for a night out can be an enjoyable experience.
From finding the perfect outfit to organizing your makeup and accessorizing, there are lots of ways to make sure you look great when you walk out the door.
We hope our tips have helped you figure out what essentials you need and given you some ideas on how to pull it all together in time for your next big night out!
