There’s nothing better than girls’ night out. It doesn’t matter what the girls and I do when we are together- drinks, dinner, dancing, book club, Zumba, whatever. Having some time away from real life to hang out with the best women in my life is always at the top of my to do list.
That said- I usually get to have girls’ night at the end of a long day with the my girls, aged two and four. By the time I’ve played, cooked and cleaned all day, I usually want to get out of the house as quickly as possible- and that means finding ways to look cute fast, and ways to get some quick energy. (Like my favorite two minute updo!) Here’s my 5 minute simple smoky eye tutorial to get you looking glam for girls’ night.
What You’ll Need
- A medium-toned eye shadow that you love. I usually use a darkish mauve color.
- An eyeshadow crease blending brush/definer brush
- A smudger brush
(Check out this handy guide to makeup brushes if you aren’t familiar with all the terminology)
Get the Smoky Eye
Dip the eyeshadow crease blending brush into the color of your choice, and tap it against the sink. This will remove any excess powder that might want to fall onto your under eye, causing a raccoon eye look that is hard to get off! Apply shadow along your eye line from corner to corner.
Using the smudger brush (or really any foam applicator), line underneath your eyes from corner to corner. Once you reach the outer eye, build it up a tiny bit into a semi-cat eye.
Finish with mascara! I LOVE how this look gives me a tiny bit of cat eye without being too dramatic. You can also line your eyes on top of the shadow on your top lash line, but I love how soft my eyes are lined with just the shadow on this particular look.
If you are anything like me, by the time girls’ night rolls around (usually after my kids’ bedtime) I’m super tired. I pretty much need a pick me up in order to have enough energy to really enjoy my time out. Dunkin’ Donuts® iced coffee is the perfect solution because it’s creamy and delicious and you can find it at Kum & Go® in four different flavors to fit my mood- Original, Espresso, Mocha and French Vanilla.
