Essential Make-up to Bring on a Night Out

When your going out for a night on the town, it's often hard to know what to bring with you ! I used to be one of those girls that brought everything but the kitchen sink in my bag. However after years of lugging around small but very over-packed bags on nights out, I've learned my lesson and now I only bring the absolute essentials. I only ever bring out exactly what I use and also things that are very replaceable.

Concealer : I bring my concealer everywhere with me(as you can see from the battered packaging) and especially on nights out. My favorite at the moment is the collection concealer (I did a review HERE). It's small so it'll fit in any handbag/clutch and is perfect for little touch ups.  Also this concealer is about €5.50 so if you lose it on a night out, it won't break the bank to replace it.

Mascara : Of course mascara is essential, little touch ups throughout the night to make sure your lashes stay perfectly curled. I recently bought this NYC mascara and it's perfect for a night out, it's only about €3 so again is very replaceable.

Eyeliner : I always use eyeliner on a night out, it's the one thing I find that needs to be reapplied quite often so this skinny little eyeliner is perfect as it's not heavy in any way and will fit in any bag. It's only about €3 so if you lose it, it's not the end of the world.

Lipstick : Of course, you can't leave the house without your lippie !! It is probably the most essential out of everything (or at least in my opinion). Reapplying your lippie often is so important because no one likes that, half on half off look !

Clips : These are the handiest thing when you've been on the dancefloor all night and you feel like you're going to pass out with heat. Pop your hair up with clips and you're sorted !!

So they're my essentials what do you think, am I missing something ? What are your essentials for a night on the town ?

    1. Ooh I never though of a little can of dry shampoo !! I've just tried this NYC one and it's grand for a night out but nothing will ever beat my badgal mascara from Benefit haha !

  2. Literally all I bring with me on a night out is a phone and some money, probably should consider some of these by the look of some of the photos of me coming towards the end of the night haha!
