I wanted to bring you along while I get ready for a night out with my friends! I went through the process from hair, through to outfit, and maybe even some pics of my friends and I!
The first step was to take a shower and do my hair! If you want to see the products that I use in the shower, check out my pamper routine where I go into detail on my current favorite shower products! So, once I am out of the shower, I let my hair air dry. I already damage my hair enough so the less heat, the better!
The first image is my hair completely air dried. Sometimes I would add curls and sometimes I straighten it, so like I said, a lot of heat! To help minimize the heat damage, I use the products on the right. Those include the Flat Iron Express by Garnier Fructis. This stuff is the best! It truly does cut down on the time it takes to straighten your hair and helps to protect it at the same time! Along the same lines, I use the Flat Iron protector, also by Garnier. This is the heat protectant that I use and it doesn’t make your hair greasy, which is amazing. Lastly, to help my hair I use the Whole Blends Smoothing leave-in-conditioner, by surprise, surprise, GARNIER! 😂 Clearly, their products are perfect! This particular one is the Coconut Oil and Cocoa Butter scent. You can put it in your hair either damp or dry, and neither make your hair greasy!
Here is my hair, halfway through and completely straight! I really enjoy my hair straight versus natural and with the leave-in-conditioner helping with the humidity, it stayed straight literally the entire night! This was my first time using this when going out and being around a TON of people and I was pleasantly surprised!
After my hair was done, I moved on to the face! This routine is more in depth than my everyday makeup routine, if you want to check that out, go ahead and click here! The first thing I do is put primer on, this is the Maybelline Master Prime to reduce redness. I then use my favorite foundation at the moment, and has been for a while now! This is the Covergirl Outlast 3-in-1 foundation in the shade 810 ‘Classic Ivory.’ The one that I have is before they changed the packaging, lol. For concealer, I use the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser in ‘Fair’. I swear by this stuff, I used it tonight for under my eyes and on my face as well.
I will then go in with my powder, which is the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in ‘Transparent.’ This made my makeup last all night! Next step is to use the Pixi bronzer in the shade ‘Summertime.’ Finally, for the face, I use the Doll 10 cream highlight in the shade ‘Champagne.’
For this particular look, I did my eyebrows and for shadow used the classic Naked 2 pallet. For brows, I used the Brow Fix Brow Kit by Milani, and this is in the shade ‘Light… something,’ honestly, some of the back has rubbed off because I have used it so often 😂 I also just brush them out with the spooly on the end of an eyebrow pencil that is not currently my shade.
For eyes, I first used the E.L.F Eyelid Primer that is literally a dollar… As I said, I then use the Naked 2 pallet by Urban Decay! I start with going all over the lid with the shade ‘Verve’ which is labeled number 1 above. Second, I mixed the shades ‘Suspect’ and ‘Tease’ to put in my crease, these are labeled number 2! I then take ‘Tease’ and run that on my lower lash line. Lastly, I take the shade ‘Bootycall’ and use that to highlight my browbone! (Number 3). I then use my liquid eyeliner by Milani and do a slight wing. And finally, I use my favorite mascara at the moment, the Covergirl Super Sizer in ‘very black’.
The final step is lips! (also, say hi to my makeup set up, mirror on a chair in the middle of the living room! 😂) So for lip color tonight I used the Real Her lip kit. Includes a liner, a liquid lipstick, and a lip gloss. I first started out with a balm, and then used the kit in the shade ‘Lady Love.’
And this is my final makeup look!
I was very pleased with my outfit tonight! I wore a black skirt with a knot on one side and a slit up the leg. I paired this with a blue and ivory striped, high neck, crop top and nude heels! The heels have an amazing pattern on them as well, so of course, had to do a close-up!
Overall, it was a very successful night! Here are a couple of shots, number one is Kendall and me! Number two is me (in the middle) and a few of my friends!
