Create the Perfect Girls’ Night Out Look with These Hair & Makeup Tips

Nothing beats spending a night chilling at home in your jammies and binge watching true crime dramas with a huge bowl of popcorn, but sometimes you want to get dressed up, round up your favorite girlfriends, and hit the best San Diego nightclubs. When you’re getting ready for a good old-fashioned girls’ night out, you want to look as good as you feel—gorgeous, confident, and ready to slay your swagger. You’ve been waiting for the chance to wear that super cute outfit, and you need to top off your look with just the right makeup and hairstyle. If you need a little inspiration for your situation, follow these tips to take your girls’ night makeup and hair routine up a notch.

Get Your Glow on with Foundation

Think about switching up your usual foundation and using one with a dewy finish that gives you an extra shimmer of glow. Use circular motions when you apply it, and make sure to buff it into your skin seamlessly. The most important thing is to blend, whether you apply your foundation with your fingers, a sponge, or a stippling brush (which has synthetic bristles that keep you from applying too much and natural bristles to help you blend. Make sure to blend down into your neck, since it’s usually lighter than your face, and you don’t want any visible lines.

Lift Your Lashes with Mascara

If you want some seriously fierce lashes that’ll last all night long, your best bet is a mascara that’s both waterproof and volumizing. Start by holding your brush horizontally. Apply it to the base of your lashes and gently sweep up. Then make another pass holding the brush vertically to add more mascara and plump up your lashes even more.

Add Some Shimmer to Your Smoky Eye

Give your go-to smoky eye a shimmery golden makeover by swapping out the black and gray eyeshadow for a palette of gold instead. It’ll really pop if you’re wearing your favorite girls’-night-out little black dress. 

Start by lining your upper lash line with black eyeliner and smudging it to create the smoky effect. Then diffuse the line with a sponge tip, moving up toward the crease of your eye to give it a more subtle impression.

Now you’re ready to go for the gold! Just follow these easy steps:

  • Apply eye shadow primer to your lids so you’ll have a smooth surface for your shadow.
  • Using a flat shadow brush, apply a layer of gold eye shadow to your lids.
  • With a black pencil eyeliner, draw a thick line on your upper lids. Smoky eyes are supposed to be a little messy, so don’t stress over getting it perfect.
  • With the same pencil, draw a line along your lower lash line, and then blend it out with a small, flat brush to give it more dimension and make it even smokier.

If you’re going for a darker hue, try using a slightly stiff brush to apply multiple layers of color on your lids. For a more intense color, try wetting the shadow. For a more sheer look, use a fluffier brush. If you want extra drama, you can apply a bronzy shade in the crease and a champagne shade in the inner corners of your eyes. Use a fluffy brush to blend the shadow and get rid of any lines, and you’re done!

Go Bold with Your Lip Color

Red always slays, but if it’s your go-to lipstick shade, why not shake things up a little and try something new? Step out of that comfort zone with a bright peach, vivid fuchsia, or deep burgundy. Use the applicator to outline your lips first, and then fill in your color to create the luscious kissable look you want. 

Get Raves for Your Waves

Girls’ night out is perfect for some sexy, beachy waves, and this hairstyle is super easy to pull off with just a few simple steps:

  • Wash your hair
  • Spritz on a bit of leave-in conditioner
  • Put your hair in a braid and allow it to air dry
  • When it’s dry, unbraid it and shake it out 

You’ll be amazed by your gorgeous, softly tousled curls. The best part is you don’t have to use and heat to get this casually elegant look. If you want your style to last through the night, texturizing spray is a good choice—it gives you a fuller look without being sticky or tacky like hair spray.

Let Your Ponytail Fly

If you think ponytails are boring, you haven’t seen a slicked-back, sleek take on this classic style. And can you think of a better way to keep your hair out of your face while you’re on the dance floor with your buds? It only takes a few seconds to tie your hair up into a cute pony, and you can give it a little chignon-like design by wrapping some of your hair around the tie and giving it a bit of a creative twist.
