Since I recently hosted a Girl’s Night Out last week at a blow-dry bar, I figured I’d share my top 5 must-haves if I’m having my friend’s over.

Typically when I have my friends over we don’t do the whole sleepover thing. We usually get ready together before a night on the town. We’ll drink champagne ( sometimes in the shower, lol ), listen to Brazilian lounge, & eat a cheese/grapes plate. Super mellow.

Here’s the top five things I HAVE TO HAVE while we’re getting ready:

Leg makeup: 

If you haven’t heard of leg makeup you haven’t lived. Leg makeup isn’t as complicated as it sounds. In fact it’s so easy, it’s kind of crazy. When I’m hanging out with my friends we’re typically showing some leg. Think mini skirts, but not too Vegas-ish. Airbrush Legs by Sally Hansen ( I like the ‘Light Glow‘ shade ) gives my legs a sun-kissed finish & hides any flaws. I swear the Victoria’s Secret models wear this on the runway. It’s like that dewey finish with a tint of shimmer. I’m so obsessed I even wear it on my arms. A total must-have for a girl’s night.

Lip plumper:

Big lips without filler or surgery? Hell ya. Lip Plumper really takes it up a notch in the lip department. It kind of stings too which is sorta sexy if you think about it? If my friends & I are getting ready together we all like a little OOMPH in our lips soooooo that’s where this magic tool comes in. It stimulates the lips making them appear fuller & more kissable. So Kylie J. A video tutorial on how to pump those suckers up, can be found here.

Raw coconut oil:

DUH, DUH, DUH. But wait I have a trick for this that’s kind of life-changing: my Aunt Cheryl used to be a supermodel in New York City ( no joke, going to brag about her for a minute…she was on Chanel billboards, Macy’s ads, & partied with the best of them at Studio 54, so she knows her stuff ). Anyway, she told me that all the models would rub oil on their neck bones to make them pop out. They also applied a little Coconut Oil to the tips of each of their shoulders. I swear by this tip when I’ve had too much bambleberry ice cream the day before. It makes you look kind of 80’s chic too. All my friends & I used this tip before my friend Jackie’s wedding and it was a hit. Plus you smell like a tropical heaven. My favorite coconut oil is this kind because it’s raw, organic, & unrefined.

Eyelash curler:

Unless you live under a rock you are very aware that lashes just don’t look the same without a bad-ass curler. I AM SOOOO SPECIFIC about my eyelash curler. I feel like the day I found the right eyelash curler, everything else fell into place. I kid. Kinda. If I’m getting ready with my friends I HAVE TO HAVE my eyelash curler, primer ( die for this one ), & mascara. Watch the whole shebang go down here.

While I’m obsessed with my eyelash curler for obvious reasons, I can’t live without a good moisturizer. If you guys read The Skinny Confidential Book you know I HAVVVVVEEE to mix my foundation with moisturizer before application. I like a dewey finish, not a dry, matte, flakey, dandruff-ish finish. The moisturizer mixed with my foundation ensures a pretty, Kim-K finish that kind of glows without making you look super sweaty ( because be real, nobody has time for a sweaty looking upper lip ). This moisturizer mixes super nice with my foundation creating a flawless finish.

What’s your must-have for a night with your babes? I’m sure you guys have some super rad tips/tricks up your ruffled, lace sleeve…?

  • I’ve heard that coconut oil is really good too! Apparently it also does wanders for a hair mask, I’ve started putting it on my cuticles at night so they don’t get dry and sore :)

  • Thank you for making Sally Hensen leg makeup acceptable.

    Like, i have had this for a while (sometimes I’d buy it and sometimes not just like when I had an event) and it seriously makes such a difference on your legs. For some reason I have bruises ad like little nicks that just go away with this. Hilarious, you’re da best.


  • I am at the airport and totally just realized that I forgot moisturizer and my eyelash curler. AH!

  • Wait, tell me more about this leg make-up sitch. I’ve used that a few times before and I think I’m, not doing it right. For example, I would not wear a white robe while doing it because that stuff gets everywhere. In fact, I typically do it in the shower then run the water so the color doesn’t stain it. But I’m mostly likely missing something… Please dish! XO

    I’m the SAME WAY when it comes to eyelash curlers!! A lot of my friends don’t get what the big deal is, but I tell them to get a Shu Uemura one. I swear by mine! XO

  • I thought I was the only person who put airbrush legs all over their body! I’m glad I’m not the only one lol.

  • Hey Lauren! Does the Sally Hansen leg spray come off on your clothes at all? And is it sticky? I HATE sticky self tanners.

  • As I read each of this tips I realized I need to up my game and am going to need to buy/try each one!! Especially the airbrushed legs…girl needs a serious suntan!

  • I’ve also ready that adding a drop of Almond Oil to your foundation helps attain the dewy look without the greasiness. So far, I really like it.

  • Brazilian lounge music?? Is this on pandora or something?
