Badass Songs to Listen to when Youre Getting Ready ...

By Lyndsie

Getting ready for the day – or the evening – can be … well, it depends, really. Sometimes it's fun, sometimes it's fast, and sometimes it's just tiresome. I feel that way occasionally when I'm getting ready to go out. There are days when I just need a little inspiration as I apply a fierce face and do something fabulous with my hair. You know how I give myself a boost? Music! These are the songs I listen to when I'm getting pretty. Add yours!

1 Florence + the Machine – Kiss with a Fist

I … don't know why I like listening to this when I get ready, but I do. There's something a little punk about, plus I admit, I love the lyrics.

2 Beyoncé – Who Run the World?


3 Prince Ft. Sheena Easton – U Got the Look

This is particularly fitting in light of Prince's recent, tragic passing. RIP, Prince. Thank you for making us all feel a little more fabulous.

4 Fergie Ft. Ludacris – Glamorous

Fergie makes me dance around the bathroom. I fully admit that I sing into my brush and pose in the mirror. Sometimes I even kiss my reflection.

5 Hozier – Take Me to Church

I've loved this song since I first saw the heartbreaking video, but the song itself also has the power to make me feel … well, like I'm the woman Hozier's singing about, actually.

6 Third Eye Blind – Semi-Charmed Life

This has been a go-to for me since high school. That beat, man. That gets me excited about getting ready.

7 TLC – No Scrubs

Same here. I don't look for boys when I go out, scrubs or otherwise (I'm married to a sugar momma, I don't need no scrubs), but this song still puts a strut in my step.

8 Lady Gaga – Marry the Night

To be honest, any of Gaga's songs will make you feel like a queen as you're getting ready to walk out the door. This one's just my favorite.

9 Shakira – She Wolf

Shakira just … god, I love her.

10 Christina Aguilera Feat. Lil’ Kim – Can’t Hold Us down

Regretfully, I am not as into Christina as I once was. That being said, this song does things to me. It puts a little extra pep in my step.

11 Rihanna – Hard

Rhi does, too. She can make a girl feel so frigging empowered.

12 Katy Perry – Part of Me

What? I can't explain it.

13 The Pussycat Dolls – I Don’t Need a Man

Ahahaha, I really don't. You don't either.

14 Queen – Don't Stop Me Now

Queen will never not make me feel awesome.

15 Panic! at the Disco – La Devotee

Everyone needs a song like this on their makeup playlist, even if it's not this particular song.

16 Taylor Swift – Shake It off

As you're applying your favorite cosmetics and feeling your look, remember this: if you don't have a single hater, you're doing something wrong.

17 Demi Lovato – Confident

This goes without saying, right?

18 Beyoncé – Single Ladies

Of course, that was before Lemonade dropped. I think Bey is going to feature even more heavily on my playlist.

How do you rock out when you're putting on makeup and getting ready to step out?
