the perfect pre-night out prep!


Sometimes the prep leading up to a night out is just as fun, if not more fun, than going out for a night. I’m all about beauty and love the process of getting all dolled so here are my tips for a fun and fabulous way to prep for any night out!

drink. Popping a nice bottle of bubbly and pouring yourself a glass of champs will set the mood for your beauty prep. It’s fun and sophisticated drink to sip and help get you in a fun state of mind. Remember only have one or two glasses of champs; showing up to a night out already half drunk is a big no-no.

skin. Slathering on a sexy scented body lotion or butter will make your skin feel super soft and smell amazing! Personally, I love, love, love Victoria Secret’s Pure Seduction body butter which is one of the ultimate sexy scents. Be prepared for lots of complaints ladies!

facemask. Nothing will make your skin and makeup look more luminous and gorgeous than doing a hydrating face mask. I always suggest exfoliating first, my favorite is the First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads, which gently exfoliates your skin. More about that here. As for masks, I’m obsessed, obsessed with sheet masks! Currently, I love the SK-II sheet masks which are the best of the best, but I also have been loving Leader’s What Happened Last Night? sheet mask. And honestly, I’d probably do both before heading out, double the fun! Both masks hydrate, de-puff, and add radiance to your skin. #winning

tunes. Music is my go to for putting me in a going out state of mind. Throw on some tunes and dance around your room. Nelly put it best, “So take it off like your home alone. You know dance in front your mirror while you’re on the phone.” Loving some throwback music. Nelly, Spice Girls, and many other late nineties/early two thousands pop songs are on my playlist.

How do you prep for a night out?
