Perfecting the Girl's Night Out Look

1:16 PM

Ever since having my baby girl 5 months ago, there have been many days where I admittedly didn't put myself first. Okay, so maybe that is basically everyday with a newborn, but I digress. As a new mom you just don't get the luxuries of going out wherever you want at any time of night or day but because I'm so in love with motherhood I haven't seen it as missing out too much. In a way, it makes me appreciate those times I do get to spend with my favorite ladies even more.

I don't know about you, but I definitely try to up my makeup game when I'm going out for an evening with the girls because they just appreciate it, at least to an extent slightly more than my infant does. ;) I thought this would be the perfect occasion to showcase my collaboration with COVERGIRL and share how their COVERGIRL + Olay Simply Ageless primer and foundation made my GNO routine foolproof and gorgeous.

I'm starting off with the COVERGIRL + Olay Simply Ageless Anti-Aging Foundation Primer which has a lovely creamy texture and applying it to a clean, bare face. This primer not only helps foundation to last longer and look better, but it also includes anti-aging ingredients that help condition skin over time which is always a blessing for my sleep-deprived self!

Next, I'm applying Simply Ageless 3-in-1 Foundation in Medium Beige all over my skin using clean fingertips. Seriously, I am in so love with the texture of this! It has almost a fluffy, soft feeling which blurs into the skin so smoothly, no brushes needed. The medium-to-full coverage gave me an even, flawless complexion with a very natural satin finish that also felt very hydrating.

To finish the look I applied a contoured rose-gold eye and matching rosy cheeks with a deep red lip to bring out the sophisticated glam feeling I was going for.

You all know I would never leave you hanging so if you want to check out my whole process for getting ready including makeup application and outfit, you can see it all step-by-step in video form below!

For the record, these pretty pretty photos are courtesy of the pretty BFF to my right, photographer extraordinaire Kassia. Girl, you are just too talented.

I know you only get snippets in the video, but the ladies and I had the best time sipping lattes, cracking up over silly selfies that will never see the light of day, and protecting ourselves from the local finches who were getting a little too brave about trying our food! All in all, a worthy event to get glammed out for, making memories with my best friends.
