Hangover? What Hangover
Looking in the mirror the morning after the night before has often made me think what a state! How did I go from being dolled up to the nines to looking like I've been sleeping on the streets. Puffy eyes, dehydrated skin and a mouth as dry as the Sahara Desert are some of the horrible after effects of a night on the town.
Sometime a hangover is the perfect excuse to stay in bed with a bacon sandwich glass of water and headache tablets but sometimes, especially of the night is unplanned you need to be up and running errands. I got this idea off Rebecca's blog P0larMilk to show you how I try and hide my hangover. I can never be bothered/have enough time to do a full face but these products are essential to help take me from looking like a corpse to a kind of alive human being.
First of all I take the Superdrug Vitamin E Radiance eye cream to try and reduce the puffyness, Then I use the Benefit That Gal Brightening Face Primer to try and add a bit of life to my skin. I follow this with the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation as I think it Gives a nice dewy finish or as the name suggests a 'Healthy' look. Next up is the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer which is great for hiding bags under my eyes, I then finish with a quick spritz of the Caudalie Beauty Elixr to set the foundation and hydrate my skin.
For eyes I heard that a nude eyeliner on the waterline is great for hiding any redness. As I dont own one of these yet I have opted for my Eyeko Eyeliner in powder pink (I got this in a Glossy Box and always wondered when it would come in handy!) I then use the Max Factor Eye Brightening Mascara to make my eyes look awake.
And Voila, thats how I try to conceal my hangover. I thought this may come in handy as its Christmas party season and all.
Do you have a hangover routine? I would love to hear some of your tips!
I had my Christmas party Last Night and oh my god did I feel rough This morning! Luckily I didn't have anything to get up for, apart from hunting for something filthy to eat. Have you had your Christmas party yet?
