A Badass Night Out with the Girls

I am a homebody, I love staying in, having a good face mask while wearing oversized pj’s. I just don’t feel like me wearing a mini skirt, low cut shirt, heals, and a pound of makeup. Do you know what I mean?
So while others do sexy I depend on my inner rock goddess to make me look chic on the ladies night out. 

So if your like me… a house cat that is not the slightest badass but likes to look like one from time to time. Ladies night out is the perfect time to do so.

Silvery and Creased Shadow 
Chanel Illusion D’Ombre in Epatant is perfect for this look. So I know Chanel isn’t the first thing you think of when you think of rock and roll. And yes, I don’t particularly like this cream shadow… it creases like crazy and it’s a bit too sparkly for day-to-day usage. But lived in eye silvery lame eye shadow that looks like it’s been slept in works for this look.

To keep things flattering I apply this only to the lid and blend though my crease with a MAC 217 brush.

Glossy Smudgy Black liner
I love that lived in eyeliner look! The perfect product for this look is the Stila Eye Kajal. Truth is told I avoid this liner for everyday use. I find by the end of the day I look like I’ve consumed way too much tequila and maybe have even taken a snooze.
Way to build this product up!
What the eye Kajal is great for is for that rocker lived in look. To avoid looking crazy I apply this close to the lash line (like any pencil) and blend it out with a pencil brush.

Nars Albatross is my go to highlighter when going out. While this might be a little too much during the day in pictures this looks stunning. This looks white in the pan I promise you it shows up gold on the skin. Amazing highlight for darker skin tones too!

Mattifying Powder
Especially when being photographed you don’t want to overly shiny. While my skin is especially dry my chin is usually the area that gets greasy first. So to keep the oils down and my makeup lasting longer I like to use the BECCA Blotting Powder Perfector. For long time I hesitated using any blotting/mattifying powder because they have always emphases my dry skin. BECCA Blotting Powder doesn’t its lightweight, translucent, travel friendly and non cakey. While this product is perfect for dry skin ladies, it also contains no oil for those of you who have oily skin.

All that’s missing is my spiked belt I wore in high school and a pair of chuck tailors!
I hope you are all having a happy Saturday!

Thank you for reading,
