Not sure about you lot but here at SkinBase towers, the party season is already in full swing. Things are only going to get more hectic as we move into December, and I am sure you’ll agree we’ve all been there, where we need tips to cover up a hang-over so that we can function the next day.
Whether it is getting drunk out with the girls or getting drunk at a work function without meaning to, you’ve got to know the right makeup tips that’ll work to cover up that hang-over and make you look beautiful.
The key to covering up a hang-over is making sure your face doesn’t look puffy and that your makeup doesn’t look smeary – remember that as you read all of my tips below girls!
Don’t cake on the makeup
While your first instinct on covering up a hang-over might be to cake on all of the makeup, that isn’t the case girls! Instead, you want to opt for makeup that is light and makeup that is heavy on the moisturiser (as you’ll see below!). The reasoning behind that is because you don’t want to make it seem like you are hiding something, instead you want your face to look natural.
Drink lots of water
When you get drunk, it actually takes a lot of the water out of your system, so you want to make sure that you are hydrating yourself (this will also help ensure that your hang-over goes away quicker!). Drinking tons and tons of water will make your face appear less puffy and will make you more alert – as well as hydrate you!
Remember when I said heavy moisturiser? That’s the way to go ladies! This tip to cover up a hang-over works great when you’ve been drinking all night and have dried your skin out completely. Just a few thin layers of your thickest and best moisturiser and you should be seeing your face return to normal!
Un-puff your eyes
You’ve got to un-puff your eyes girls if you are going to fool anyone that you aren’t hung-over. Cucumber slices, some cold compresses and even a gel-pack from the freezer are all ways to hide that puffiness. Not to mention you can use a little bit of concealer as a makeup tip to hide your puffy eyes.
When you are dealing with a hang-over, you want products that are going to be oil-based, so that they don’t come off as easy as water-based products do. That heavy moisturiser that I stated up there? Use one that has a little bit of oil to it, that way it’ll soak right into your skin!
Apply colour corrector
Another makeup tip is to apply some colour corrector under your eyes and really anywhere you see fit. Colour correctors have saved me so many times in the past when people thought that I was out all night drinking. Just a little dab of yellow or green-based colour corrector and you’ll see all of the wonders that it works!
Finally girls, the last makeup tip that we’re going to talk about is the colour scheme that you should go with. You don’t want to do something that is too crazy, instead, go with a neutral palette and make sure that you keep it simple.
So girls, the next time that you are thinking about heading out for a night on the town, remember these tips to cover up a hang-over so that nobody knows you went out! These makeup tips have really worked for me, what other tips do you girls have? Share!
