Look, date night is great, and a Netflix night alone is fabulous. But nothing beats the feeling of getting together with your closest friends and having a girls' night out. It's also the perfect time to show off that tricky cat eye you've been practicing all week — or to go for that bold lip color you've been coveting. Being surrounded by your friends gives you confidence, so an evening out with your BFFs is the best time to have fun with your beauty look. And we've got you covered, because we've pulled together your ultimate beauty guide for a girls' night out. Because after all, girls just wanna have fun.

Work That Smoky Eye

No beauty look is more famous than the smoky eye, and a girls' night out is the perfect time to break out your favorite eye shadow palette. But you don’t have to limit yourself to the classic charcoal look. If you want to try something a little different, go for a golden smoky eye, which is smoldering but soft.

Try a Cat Eye for Extra Drama

The cat eye is like a little black dress. No matter what decade you're in, it's still in style. Plus, the winged effect actually makes you look younger as it widens and lifts the eyes. So if you don't want to do the whole smoky eye thing, skip the shadow and grab your favorite liquid liner. A bare lid with a cat eye still brings plenty of drama to the table.

Experiment with False Lashes

If you've been nervous to try false lashes, bite the bullet and try it on your next evening out with your girlfriends. Or if you don't want to do a full set, try a smaller cluster (called a "flare"). The whole glue and application process can be a little tricky the first go-around, but once you've got 'em on? It's like an instant makeover.

Go Bold With a Statement Lip 

Try something different. If you always do a nude lip during the day and a red lip at night, challenge yourself to go for a hue that isn't your signature color. Have fun with it. In
