It’s been a while since I’ve had a big night out. I’m prepping for a competition at the moment, which means lots of gym/healthy food and no alcohol. I’m planning some nights out, festivals, and holidays for when it’s all over though – 8 weeks to go! I think that getting ready for a night out is half the fun. Here are some of my favourite tips to help you:
Do Your Tan the Night Before
I always apply at least one layer of fake tan the night before a night out. The tan I use develops over night, so the next day I shower it off and have a nice bronzed look. However, if you use instant, then you should obviously do it on the day. There are some problems you can run into with instant though: what will you do if it rains?! This is why I like to use a tan that develops overnight and wash away the excess in the morning, as it looks far more natural and lasts the night. Just make sure you don’t apply it immediately after shaving, as it’ll stick in your pores and look nasty.
Do Your Nails the Night Before
Do your nails the night before too. There’s nothing worse than painting your nails the day of a night out to chip them or smudge them while you’re rushing around trying to get ready. This happens to me every. Single. Time. That’s why I make sure I do them the night before.
Have a Can of Dry Shampoo on Hand
Dry shampoo will add instant volume to your hair. I apply it even if I’ve just washed it and don’t need to get rid of grease, as it gives it so much oomph! If you want your style to hold and crave that extra volume, then you need dry shampoo. Trust me.
Use Teeth Whitening Strips
I always use a teeth whitening strip if I’m going out. My favourite are Crest 3D white. You can tell the difference after using just one strip! Just make sure you don’t drink anything that can stain your teeth afterwards.
Do Your Makeup in Natural Light
When doing your makeup, do it in natural light if you can. If you can’t, do it in the closest thing. Doing your makeup in rubbish, dim lighting could end in disastrous results. You won’t know until you enter a bright bathroom though, and that’s the scariest thing! Doing it in a bright, close to natural light will ensure proper blending and a flawless finish.

Drink Loads of Water
Drinking loads of water will make your skin look better, especially if you start doing it in the lead up to your night out. On the day, it’ll keep you hydrated and stop you from getting too drunk. Maybe. It might even stop your hangover!
I always use these tips when I’ve got a girls night out planned. They make me feel so much better. Doing things the night before really takes time off my getting ready time too. What are your favourite big night out tips? Let me know!
