I was so excited when Krista of The Hundred Blog reached out and asked if I wanted to be part of a fun event with Dove and a few other bloggers! For a fun night out, we went to happy hour at Laurel Hardware and then to a comedy show at The Laugh Factory in Hollywood. But the fun really started before the night out. We all got ready together with our Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant (we may or may not have sprayed it on each other, JK that’s weird). The spray is fantastic for girls on the go because it goes on instantly dry, keeps you fresh and smelling great for 48 hours, and is really easily transported. Plus, it provides added skincare benefits with its 1/4 moisturizing formula for softer, smoother skin. While getting ready and spraying ourselves, we all shared some of our beauty tips for looking and feeling your best for a night out.
My tip for a night out:
For a night out, I always like to make sure my hair is all set to go. With curly hair, it can get frizzy in an instant, so I use my T3 wands for beach-y waves and then finish with hairspray. One tip for getting the perfect beach-y wave, be sure to leave the ends out when using the wand! This creates a loose, no-ringlet wave that is perfect on anyone!
Esther of Girls Who Brunch recommends:
My beauty tip for a night out is to always do your eye makeup first! This is especially good if you’re doing a smokey eye. When you’re applying eye shadow, liner and mascara it can sometimes get a bit messy and there’s a lot of fall out. If you do your eyes first, you can wipe away the fall out and then cover with a concealer. My favorite concealer of the moment is the Bye Bye Undereye Concealer from It Cosmetics. It’s thick so a little goes a long way!
Michelle of Fifty Two Thursdays says:
An important tip which I’d like to share that’ll ensure a successful night out and (more importantly) a refreshing morning after is to use a good firming under eye gel pads. I pop them on for a little over 10 minutes while I sip on a nice glass of wine and relax before an eventful night. It’s my way of unwinding and prepping myself before the makeup, fitted clothes and uncomfortable heels go on for who knows how long. My go to gel pads are by skyn ICELAND. It de puffs, tones and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to give me the confidence needed all night!
Krista of The Hundred Blog a lot of important items:
1. Make sure you skin is clean before you put makeup on
2. Use a brightening serum (I like this one under my makeup from Peter Thomas Roth)
4. Wear perfume (my favorite right now is Alien from Thierry Mugler)
5. Drink lots o’ water
6. Use a silicone based makeup primer (this one is my favorite!)
7. Master the undone beach wave (use this to help!)
8. Put on a perfect playlist (I’ve got some in my music section!)
9. Wear a bold lip (my favorite is NYX Liquid Lingerie in Teddy)
If only I could remember all these things the next time I go out! One tip she seemed to forget is the Dove Antiperspirant Spray, which is super important to keep you smelling great through all your activities (we all know we can get smelly sometimes). Smelling great gives us girls the confidence to do anything :)! Dove is one beauty brand that I use regularly and trust- not only because their products are fantastic, but also because they and socially conscious and support ALL women, no matter what shape, size, color, or look. They are really changing the game in this respect and I highly admire them because of this.
Hope these give you some useful tips for a night out! It was so much fun meeting these lovely ladies and hanging out for a night on the town 🙂
