quick tip to a hot outfit

It may seem simple and obvious but its a gem of a tip…

When getting dressed for a night out DO YOUR MAKE-UP & HAIR FIRST!!!

It will help you decide what to wear, because you’ll already look good.

If you try to dress with tired bags under your eyes and your hair a mess; nothing you put on (no matter how cute) will look complete or good.

On the other hand, if you’re hair & make-up ready, you’ll already look fabulous and can “play” more with your clothes. You can try out different accessories and automatically see what works rather than think… “hmm, this might work once my hair is done.”


Now, you may ask “what if after I get dress, my hair or make-up doesn’t go with my outfit?” I have two answers to that:

1. You’re make-up should match YOU not your outfit!

2. Its super easy to change up your lipstick (go from glossy to red etc) or put up your hair AFTER you pick out your outfit. You still want to be mostly ready before you dress!

Do you have any fashion tips for dressing up that you want to share? Leave a comment below, would love to hear from you!

  • That DOES sound about right!! I just have this habit of either getting eye makeup (or lip gloss) on my shirt as I put it on OR I end up “messing up my hair”. :/ .. Then again, when I get dressed first, I usually end up getting makeup on my shirt that way too!! :/ .. I’m just a messy makeup applier I guess.

    Thanks for the tips!! I like the point how makeup should match US, not our clothes. Definitely a thought to ponder!
