How I Like To Prepare For Special Occasions & Nights Out




I love getting ready for a night out or a special occasion - what could be more enjoyable than picking out an outfit and pampering myself? I don’t know about you, but when it comes to getting ready for a night out or special occasion, like a wedding, I like to be prepared. I have a list of essentials that I have to do beforehand, as well as lots of great tips for pampering myself. In case your night out preparation could do with a little revamping, I thought I would share all my best advice for getting ready to go out. Be it a night out or a wedding, it doesn't matter, these tips will come in handy.

Beforehand:

Pick your outfit and accessories - The first thing you should do is decide what you’re wearing. It can be tempting to leave this until the last minute, but it’s really not worth it. You’ll only end up stressing about it if you do. Even if you’re not buying a whole new outfit, it’s important to feel confident in what you’re wearing. A great way to boost your confidence is by investing in luxury lingerie from Knicker Locker or another lingerie store. There’s something about nice underwear that helps to boost self-esteem. At least, I think so, anyway.

Get a spray tan - It’s never a good idea to get a spray tan on the day of a special event or occasion, just in case it runs or something goes wrong. So if you’re going to get a spray tan, it’s best to do so at least a day beforehand. The great thing about spray tans is that they contour your body, making you feel more confident.

On the night itself:

Have a bubble bath - Start your preparation with a lovely, relaxing bubble bath. It’s always nice to spend some time unwinding before heading out, and a bubble bath is an ideal way to do that. Run your bath at least three hours before you have to leave, so that you have plenty of time to relax and unwind.

Smother yourself in your favourite scent - To make your perfume stay in place throughout the night, layer it up. Start off applying a scented moisturiser that is the same smell as your perfume. Then spritz your body, while still damp, with a small amount of perfume. Damp skin is meant to lock in scents better than dry skin, you see. Once you’re dressed, spritz your perfume of choice onto your outfit and into your hair.

Do your hair and makeup - Last but not least, do you hair and makeup. Start by doing your makeup, and then do your hair. If there’s a certain makeup look you want to recreate, give yourself plenty of time to do so. The last thing that you want is to be rushing to get ready. As for your hair, make sure to leave yourself plenty of time - at least 40 minutes. And don’t forget, even if you don’t normally use it, to set your hair with hair spray.

There you have it, a guide to how to prepare for a special event, occasion or a night on the town.
