School’s finished & summer’s just around the corner..meaning long nights out, beach bonfires, and chatting with friends till dawn.. and yes, a couple of margaritas thrown in the mix. But we still have to get up for that 9am office meeting, summer classes or simply breakfast with grandma - so it does help to look a little less miserable!
Here are a few items to keep on your vanity (or fridge) to hide that hangover!
#1. Place Makeup Removing Towelettes & Acne Gel on the nightstand. We’ve said this before and we’ll say it again: always remove makeup before passing out! Leaving it on ages skin over time and makes it look like hell the next day - especially if you have combo/oily skin! So do a quick wipe and spot treat with a gentle medicated acne gel.
#2. Get rid of hangover dead skin. Alcohol is VERY drying and makes the skin look blah and tired the next day. If you have dry to normal skin slather on H20 Face Oasis as an overnight facial mask so you won’t be fighting flakes during your makeup routine. Keep a moisturizing lip balm beside your bed stand and do a quick swipe on your lips before conking out. The key is: keep essentials close to the bed as possibleso you won’t be too lazy to do it.
#3. Keep Eye Cooling Mask in the Freezer or use a refrigerated eye gel. Grab your cooling eye mask when you are in the kitchen trying to keep the munchies at bay. Lay down in bed with the cooling eye mask - it’s okay to doze off. The key here is to depuff your under eyes so it makes it easier to cover dark circles with concealer the next day.
#4. The morning after makeup: Hydrating Elixer, Primer, yellow concealer and multi-colored highlighting pressed powder. Sounds like a mouthful - but if you truly want to hide a bad hangover, have these in your makeup bag. Makeup Forever’s Hydrating Elixer will hide flakes caused by drinking alcohol, swipe of heavy duty yellow concealer will help with covering under eye circles in a rush, and yes, a mult-colored highlighting powder will make you look pop n’ fresh.
#5. Get Smart Water with Electrolytes. Take a huge bottle of Smart Water on the way to the office or class. Drinking water with electrolytes will help decrease the side effects of a hangover throughout the day. So drink up so you will feel better - and it will definitely show on your face too!
