Dates with significant others are always nice, but sometimes you just need some quality time with your best gal pals.
For those planning a stellar girls night out with the friends who have been with you through thick and thin, getting bangs and painfully growing them out, and every fashion fad to come down the runway, we’ve got you covered.
Morgan Stewart: Your beauty BFF
We turned to beauty influencer Morgan Stewart for a look that is designed to last from happy hour to night cap.
“You never know how long your girls night out is going to last, but you want to know the makeup is going to last the entire night,” Morgan said.
In this video tutorial, Morgan uses her favorite Artistry™ products to create a fun, bold look, including Artistry Studio™ Limited Edition Illuminating Light Up Compact and Artistry Signature Color™ Lipstick in Daring Red.
Step by step: Base layer
Morgan uses Artistry Ideal Radiance™ Illuminating CC Cream Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 50, confessing that on her “lazy” days, sometimes this is all she applies before going out.
“I’ll just use this on my skin on its own, because it does an excellent job of evening out my skin tone and protecting it from the sun,” she said. “I can rub it in with my fingers and be good to go for the rest of the day.”
Allow the base layer time to set by moving on to your eyes. Start with the Artistry™ Automatic EyeBrow Pencil to fill in your brows. Framing the eyes is key when paring it with a bold lip, Morgan said.
For color, she turned to the Artistry Studio™ Limited Edition Illuminating Light Up Compact. “These are super shimmery, they’re ultra-pigmented, they go on your skin beautifully and evenly, and again, I can use these on both my eyes and my cheeks,” she said.
Use the Gold shade in the bottom corner to provide a wash of color over your entire lid. Follow that with the Luminescent White Pearl at the top of the palette, applying it to the inner tear ducts, brightening the overall look. Finish it off with Artistry™ Signature Eyes Length & Definition Mascara™.
Foundation and cheek
Morgan chose Artistry Hydra-V™ Sheer Weightless Foundation SPF 15, which is one of her “go-to” products.
“For this look, I want my cheeks to match my lips kind of perfectly, but also not distract too much from my bold lip look,” she said. To achieve that, she created her own cheek color by mixing a few drops of foundation with Artistry Signature Color™ Lipstick in Daring Red on the back of her hand.
“When I mix it together and apply to my cheeks with a sponge, it’s going to not only create a color that complements my lips, but it’s kind of like me mixing my own custom color,” she said. “I feel like I’m really making the look my own.”
Next, return to the Artistry Studio™ Limited Edition Illuminating Light Up Compact and apply the middle shade – Pink Pearl – to the tops of your cheeks and the tip of your nose. “You cannot go anywhere without having a beautiful, glamorous glow to your cheeks.”
The bold lip
Start with Artistry™ Automatic LipLiner in Spiced Wine, applying it to the edges of your lips. Use the brush end to feather the liner toward the center of your lips.
“And then finally, I’m going to top everything off with the Artistry Signature Color™ in the shade Daring Red, which is of course the color that we used on our cheeks,” she said.
And you’re done! You’re all set to have an amazing time. (Remember, what happens on girls night out, stays on girls night out!)
