3 Night Out Outfits to Rock!

If you’re like me and you love to go out, be it a party, a dinner or a date night, here are 3 night out outfits to inspire you in shining through the night!

There’s no question that a black outfit is the king of the night-out-outfits, and to inspire you in choosing your next outfit, I’ve styled 3 different night out outfits in black for this season. By now, you all know how I love a shinning outfit an it doesn’t matter if it’s with sequins, glitter, metallic fabrics or metallic details, a little shine was never too much.

So let’s get this party started!

 

• 3 Night Out outfits to inspire you:

Velvet glitter dress: 3 Night Out outfits

Let’s start with a little black dress, that’s not plain at all! My first night out outfit is this black velvet dress with a metallic shining touch that makes it a perfect choice as a sparkly dress. It’s a great dress for going out to the club or even for a dinner or date night when you pair it with a cosy coat.

You can check more details of this velvety dress on the photo bellow to see how shiny it actually is (I didn’t add any filter at all on the photo and no shining effect was added, it’s really how the dress shines is person):

Since this dress is more in a tight style to the body, I decided to do a soft makeup with brown shades as for the eyeshadows and a pink lipstick, to create a balance between the sexy dress + a cute makeup. Also the hairstyle I did was on the cute side as well.

This his something I love to do, mix a contrast between sexy + cute to create a different outfit.

 

If you prefer a long sleeve dress for the cold weather season, here’s a great option: a bodycon dress, but with a high neck + long sleeves with the right amount of shine! This mini dress also has some shinning metallic details that make this a sparkly dress to rock on a night out!

Add a pair of comfortable high heels and you’re ready to party all night long with this dress!

 

I LOVE dresses, but of course you don’t need a dress to style a night out outfit, you can also do it with a pair of trousers! And since shining  clothes were my inspiration for styling these 3 outfits, I’ve picked a pair of sparkle wide leg trousers for this third outfit option for going out:

Well, the wide leg trousers were definitely the highlight of this outfit because they are super shining also in person, I’d say more shinning in person that it looks like in this photo. Therefore, it’s perfect for a special occasion or as a nice dinner outfit, this outfit will guarantee that you’re dressed to impress. 😉

I was in love with this pair of trousers since the first time I tried it, because it’s so shiny that it creates a beautiful effect for your outfit.

 

Since this pair of trousers were already shinning enough, I styled them with a cropped top in black satin, the perfect touch for an elegant outfit. There was already glitter enough on this bottom part, so the top could be more neutral and basic to create harmony and balance on my outfit.

Lately I’ve been loving crop tops and even the long sleeve tops in a cropped style have been my go to style of tops this fall/winter season! It looks so beautiful and classy when you style a crop top with high waisted trousers or high-waited skirt.

As anything in fashion, there are many different kind of options to explore when styling a night outfit, which is the coolest thing about fashion: we can always play and enjoy many different styles and outfits!

And how do you prefer to style your night out outfits?


Pixi MatteLast Liquid Lip Pleasing Pink Review

I’ve been trying a couple of Pixi liquid lipsticks, which are called MatteLast Liquid Lip and I’ve been loving them all! Lately I just tried the Pleasing Pink liquid lipstick, a beautiful pink shade that I’m loving!

So here’s my review of the Pixi Matte Last Liquid Lip in the colour Pleasing Pink, including how it wears on the lips (swatch) and a video, so you can check how the colour looks in real life and on movement. You will also find a list of ingredients by the end of this post, in case you need to check it for allergies.

• Pixi MatteLast Liquid Lip – Pleasing Pink:

Pixi Pleasing pink lipstick

This is my second time trying Pixi’s liquid lipsticks and I also had loved a previous nude colour I had tried last year, I had already liked the pigmentation and formulation of the previous colour and the same goes for the Pleasing Pink Colour.

This Pixi liquid lipstick dries very matte and it’s very pigmented, meaning that with only one layer of lipstick, you can already have a very rich and vibrant pink colour.

Here you can check how the colour goes on my lips with two different photos of me wearing the Pleasing Pink liquid lip colour:

On the first look, I did a more warm toned makeup look with 2 different shades of red eyeshadow (they are from the Morphe Fall into Frost 35F eyeshadow palette), completing it with the Pleasing Pink Lip colour by Pixi.

 

For this second look instead, I went for some brown shades for my eyes, also from the same palette of the previous look, pairing it with this pink liquid lipstick by Pixi:

You can also check a quick Instagram video on @manuluize, that I posted a couple of days ago, in which I apply the Pleasing Pink MatteLast Liquid Lip by Pixi, so you can check this colour in action:

This colour is really pigmented and it applies very well on the lips. The matte effect will show on the lips as soon as this liquid lipstick is dry.

For the duration of this lipstick, it has a good duration meaning that if you don’t eat anything, it will stay for a long time. When you eat, specially if it’s something oily, you will probably need to re-apply it after eating. Otherwise, for drier foods or a quick snack, the lipstick can have a longer duration, even if you eat something.

4 Valentine’s Day outfits

Well, it’s that time of the year! The Valentine’s Day is coming and have you already thought about your outfit? Here you will find 4 different suggestions of ideas and inspirations for Valentine’s Day outfits, from the romantic gal to the sexy lady.

You all know how much I love dresses and pink, so a pink dress up dress is always a must-have for me! And for the Valentine’s Day, it makes a perfect romantic outfit. In satin and with asymmetric sleeves, it gives a special touch to this dress, making it an elegant dress to stand out on the occasion.

To make this outfit even more fashionable, like an it girl, I decided to pair this pink one shoulder dress with a statement pair of shoes! This lovely pair of high heels are the prefect statement shoes with a pink flower and a Swarovski crystal to make you shine all night!

And since it’s cold outside, a long coat was my choice for this outfit, matching a cream coat with this pink dress to keep this outfit in a pastel color palette, making it a very elegant outfit for a dinner out or also for going out with your friends if you will be celebrating galentines!

PS: At first I wasn’t sure I’d enjoy this different-colour-of nails-trend, but actually, I’ve been enjoying playing with nail polish colours and wearing each nail in a different color, but matching them all in similar or harmonic style, like I did here with nude + pink + violet nail colours.

 

You can mainly go one of the two way for a Valentine’s Day outfit: romantic or sexy, the choice is yours according to your personal style and what are your plans for the day!

If you prefer more of a sexy outfit for this Valentine’s Day, this next outfit is for you! Think about fake leather + animal print! You can’t get sexier than this! 😉

So here’s option number 02: a fake leather mesh sleeve dress with animal print sleeves (leopard print), a mix of elegance and sexiness in the same outfit! Pair it with high heels and you’re ready to rock and look even more flawless for your special date night!

To me, everything says sexy in this dress: the bodycon shape, the fake leather fabric and the leopard sleeves details, but as I always do when I go for a sexy outfit, it is sexy, but also still very elegant, because that’s how I prefer to dress when I go for a sexy outfit.

 

If your Valentine’s Day plans are during the day or if you believe something a little more casual would fit better your plans or your mood, get cosy with a jumper dress. To transform it in a more sophisticated look, I added a fake fur gilet + a statement fake leather belt to this dress and voilà! You have such a beautiful and more fashionable outfit!

But if you want another sexy outfit option, I have another Valentine’s Day outfit inspiration for you: a crop top in fake leather + organza sleeves matching with black fake leather leggings. Sexy and chic! Since my whole outfit was black, also for this outfit I gave it a little fashion touch wearing it with statement boots in black and gold, which match with my cute backpack in sequins:
