Getting Ready With Your Girls Is Top Tier and Here’s Why

June 3, 2022

The next time you have a girls’ night out, you’ll have to get ready together. It’s for your mental health and sanity. Need extra convincing? Here why you should: 

The chance to catch up on gist

This is when you brief them on all the happenings. If you don’t talk to certain people anymore, you’d want your girls to be aware. Anything can happen during a night out, and your girls need to be armed with all the current information. 

Makeup activities 

Even if you don’t use makeup, watching your friends get ready is such a chaotic experience. One person is blowing lash glue to dry faster; another is looking for an eyeshadow palette with a colour that’ll match the aesthetic. The chaos is 10/10.

Feedback on outfits

One reason women overpack is that they have backup dresses for their backup dresses. If you don’t feel confident in how your outfit makes you look, your girls are there to style and restyle you. They’ll give you tips and help you select the most flattering styles. It’s for your own good. 

Pregaming drinks

This is for the drinkers. You need to pregame with your girls. Alcohol is costly outside, so it’s important to drink before you go out so you can be lit without spending too much. It’s financial responsibility!!!!!

Music 

The getting ready playlist is the most fire thing you’ll ever listen to. It gives what it’s meant to give. Imaging getting hyped by your girls even before the party starts.

Pictures

Nobody takes better pictures than girls that like you. They’re super invested in your angles, poses and lighting. They’re thinking of things you’re not worried about and will help you come up with the best Instagram captions. And the hype that comes as they’re taking the pictures? It’ll help you feel like the bad bitch you are.
