Heels or flats? A dead heat. Nude lips or ‘Ruby Woo’? An eternal struggle. Straight hair or curls? Not even sure. Decisions, decisions, decisions. This is just a brief preview of how Saturday night preparations look like in a typical girl’s world. Truth be told, we’ve all been there.
Here are some of the party-prep tips you might wanna consider before you blew your friends off for an early bedtime.
What to wear?
Ok, so you took a shower and washed your hair. Now you have to take a deep breath and dress up. Although you’ve already planned your killer outfit ever since you came back from the previous wild party, it’s time for the final touch. All of a sudden, you find it awful and can’t count on one hand how many times you have changed. Just relax, there is a solution to such problems. There are always pieces of clothing worth wearing in your closet, and I’m sure you could mix and match easily.
Cheers to fabulosity!
Make some nice cocktails for you and your girls, just to warm-up a little before you go out. Your pre-party deserves good quality music as well, and name me a better mood booster than Queen Bey? Her songs will either make you wanna leave your man, or dominate the party like it’s nobody’s business. The choice is yours, so make a playlist of your all-time favorite songs and your party mode is on.
Beat that pretty face
Let me guess, there are quite a few eyeshadow palettes on your makeup desk and yet, you use only one of them. Yawn. Instead of doing your own makeup, please your friend to do it, cause I’m sure she’s watched as many tutorials as you did. Experiment with colors a little bit, but keep it natural, yet effective. A red pout can do no wrong and be ready to stand out from the crowd. Besides, you weren’t born to blend in, but to make a scene. For the ultimate unicorn status, apply some highlighter on your cheekbones and nose bridge. If your hair looks perfect and your lashes are longer than the list of the people you hate, then you are ready to hit the dance floor!
But first, let me take a selfie…
You must take a selfie while your makeup is still fresh, rule number one. Good lighting is everything, so you better work those angles, tilt your head until you get them right, ‘cause one side neck strain is worth 500 bomb selfies. Invite your girls for a group picture and let your Instagram feed explodes. Give a small preview of your beautimous figure on the storyline, just to tease your crush a little before he actually hits the like button. Just make sure to tidy up your room first, since no one likes to see sloppy mirror selfies. Preach!
Let’s talk about your bag essentials, shall we?
Don’t you dare leave the house without small pocket tissues or wet wipes. Apart from the phone, money and chewing gums, these are the things every lady should keep in her purse. You never know who might spill a drink on your white dress, so be classy. Oh, and don’t forget to lock the door before leaving, ‘cause you don’t need that kind of negativity in your life.
After party skin care is mandatory
Beauty comes from within, but facial care is equally important. Since we could all use some help to get refreshed skin after party, we should stick to the organic products that aren’t harmful. Rose water is suitable for every skin type and it soothes and tones your skin and keeps it moisturized. Also, you could make phenomenal DIY masks with honey and coconut oil. Coconut oil is a miracle product with multiple uses. Not only does it smooth your hair but it’s also used as a nighttime face moisturizer. Therefore, wouldn’t it be nice to surprise your skin after a rough night?
So, ready to go out and celebrate your awesomeness? Apply your favorite fragrance, put on some hot heels and murder that dance floor, before your shoes murder your feet.
