Her fans are used to seeing her decked out in designer gowns on the red carpet, but when it comes to nights out, Giuliana Rancic opts for decidedly less glamorous duds.

“I joke all the time that my look is masculine-chic,” Rancic tells PEOPLE.

“When I go out at night I wear a different version of the same thing: skinny jeans, a black leather jacket, pointy-toe stilettos and a lace tank with a neon bra peeking through.”

The E! News anchor says that her look on the show is sometimes “girly,” but she likes to mix it up come evening.

“It’s a little feminine, but it’s kind of dark and masculine,” she explains. “Basically I look like I can kick your a– , or at least I feel that way!”

Her after-dark beauty must-haves are bronzer, blush and something that takes a little more time to apply. “I take the extra five minutes to put on fake eyelashes,” she admits. “A lot of girls are scared of them, but if you practice putting them on yourself, it can really transform your look from day to night.”

She even shared a trick of the trade. “I just use Ardell lashes, you can buy them at the drug store,” she reveals. “Put the glue on your lash line first, and then apply the fake ones. That way you can place it exactly where you want it.” Good to know. Start practicing, ladies!
