This weekend, I'm having a fun girls night out with my close girlfriends (sometimes you just gotta have a night out without the boys!). Read on for the four beauty essential to help you party the night away!
1. A good primer
If you want your makeup to last all night, you need to start at the base! A good primer will create the perfectly smooth canvas for your makeup, and it's an extra important step now that the weather is heating up (for more on how to ace your base, read on!). First apply your favourite moisturiser, wait a few minutes for it to absorb, then apply your primer. Here at bb, we love MeMeMe's Seventh Heaven Face Base, it contains shea butter, vitamin A and beta 0carotene to nourish and hydrate the skin, as well as even out skin tone.
2. Long-lasting eyeliner
It is best to avoid pencil liners when you have a night out - they smudge easier and by the end of the night, you might find yourself with a pair of panda eyes! Your go-to party eyeliners are liquid liners or gel liners for ultra long-lasting wear. Eye of Horus Liquid Define Eyeliner comes with an easy to use felt tip applicator - perfect to achieve a sexy cat eye. On the other hand, Glamorous Minerals Gel Eyeliner has a waterproof and smudge-proof formula that comes with an in-built brush for easy application (make sure you check out my review on this product!)
3. Bright lippie
Nothing makes you stand out than bold, bright lips! But you'd want a formula that won't easily rub off after a few drinks. For ultra-pigmented colour that goes the distance, you can't go past Obsessive Compulsive Lip Tars. They might be packaged like a lipgloss, but be warned, do not use them like a lipgloss (unless you want to end up with big clown lips) - squeeze a teeny tiny amount on the back of your hand and apply with a lip brush.
4. Cushion those heels!
A girls night out means glitzy glam, sky high heels are a must! But unfortunately, with gorgeous heels comes inevitable sore feet. To help you rock the dance floor all night long with your girls, make sure you arm your heels with Hollywood Feet's range of cushions. They are available in Gel Cushions, Heel Cushions and Velvet Cushions. Say goodbye to those annoying aches and pains!
