New York is back! Summer is back! We're getting back to normalcy and want to celebrate. With restaurants and bars safely reopening, it's time to grab your girls, throw on a pair of heels, and get out. It's been too long since we put on makeup and jeans, had a birthday dinner with friends, went out dancing, and stayed out all night. This is the summer of making up for lost time. Not sure where to start? Here's your guide to a girl's night out.
Can't remember the last time you put on a full face of makeup and pants? Neither can we. Everyone wants to get back out this summer, so prepare to see them. You want to look and feel your best when you run into your crush you haven't seen since pre-covid. To prepare, start with freshening your face. A soothing gel eye mask will moisturize and brighten before you even put on concealer. They're a night out (and day after) must.

You don't need to be a makeup artist to look like a model. The most simple and natural makeup can be the prettiest. And if it's hot out, you don't want to cake on too much product and feel sticky. A little concealer goes a long way. Swipe some under the eyes and define your cheek bones with some bronzer for a sun kissed look. Wisp on mascara, your favorite gloss and you're gorgeous girl!
What To Wear
You're either dreading or beyond excited to put on real clothes. Call your friends (or us!) and figure out who's wearing what black top. You can dress up or a little casual depending where you're going. Here's some outfit inspo for every occasion:
Jeans, black top, wedges is every girl's going out uniform. Switch it up with a colored top or printed bandana crop. Adding jewelry will set your outfit apart from the others as well.
Bandana tops are perfect for summer nights because they're silky soft, flowy, and cut out so you can stay cool. Solid handkerchief or patterned bandana, you need these for your next Saturday night with the girls.
