Night Out Makeup Looks

Rocking awesome makeup doesn’t need a special occasion. But let’s face it – whether you’re prepping for girls’ night out with your crew or a date night, you want a look that slays. Well, get ready to crush your next big night out because we’ve got 4 hot styles for you to try that are sure to do the trick.




Yes, a golden “just got back from the beach” glow is great for a post-sundown adventure! Bring a little sunshine into your night out with a bronzer-highlighter combo. Apply bronzer to your cheeks, forehead, chin and jawline. Accent with highlighter across your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose and between your eyes.


Hello kitty


Some nights out inspire a more dramatic look and the never out of style cat-eye is still a fabulous go-to. Use a liner pencil to draw your cat eye, starting at the inner eyelid, out to the end of your brow. Go over the line using a good liquid eyeliner or gel. Start with a thin line while increasing the thickness at the outer edge.


20 lashes


If you’ve never tried fake lashes, you might think this sounds more medieval than magical. False lashes can add a lot of lush without a lot of hassle. It takes some practice but once you get the hang of applying them, you’ll be lashing out on the regular! You don’t even need a full set. You can apply a few lashes to the corners of your eyes and still achieve that wow factor.


Go with a bold red


Not everyone believes they can pull off bold, red lips. Wrong! Anyone can pull them off. If you’re still not sure, start with a more sheer red, rather than a deep red matte.

Don’t be afraid to experiment with your look no matter what the occasion is! After all, perfecting a signature look is a skill!
