Hide the Hangover Makeup


We've all done it. Those "I'll just have one or two" nights that turn into you stumbling in at 5 in the morning, sending blurry eyed snapchats that you will forget about the next day. The morning after the night before arrives and of course, you've overslept, and of course, a busy girl like you has a million can't-be-missed plans for the day. 
Damage control.


It's times like this that makeup really stands to us. Here are my tried-and-tested surefire ways to hide the hangover and have you looking fresh as a daisy!
They're listed in order of importance:

♡ Concealer 

This is one of the best ways to appear more awake and fresh. Disguise those eyes with a peach toned concealer (this is specific to fair skinned ladies. If you are darker and unsure what concealer to be using, just ask!). Peach neutralises blue-y/purple hues under the eye better than any yellow concealer will. I like to use a peach tone from my 20 shade concealer palette (review here) and for extra radiance, I apply Kiko Cosmetics Natural Concealer in shade 01 to the inner corners of my eye. You won't recognise yourself! 



 ♡ Blusher 

Blusher will instantly make you look flushed and healthy , even if you feel washed-out and dried-up. It's amazing how many women skip it, but it adds so much life to a face that it should never be taken for granted! For my fair skin I love the Catrice Defining Blush in 030 Love & Peace. For super pale people, orange blushers are really flattering. For those who are not super fair, peach tones will look beautiful. Darker ladies will look beautiful with deeper tones, such as pink-y reds with a hint of orange or shimmer. 



♡ Foundation 

It is so so important that you choose a foundation that is the correct shade! Obviously this is true of everyday makeup, but even more so when you're hungover as a foundation that is too light will completely wash you out! At the moment I am loving Esteé Lauder's Double Wear foundation as it has great coverage and a satin matte finish, all the while being super smudge proof!



 ♡ Highlighter 

The goal is to appear more awake and brighter, so highlighter is not to be forgotten! I have every Benefit highlighter, Topshop's blogger-favourite Glow and lord knows how many more,  but at the moment I am absolutely loving this cheapo Essence highlighter from their All About Sunrise eyeshadow palette. It gives a glowing sheen that isn't too in-your-face or white looking. I've never seen a highlighter so good but I imagine it is similar to Mac's Soft and Gentle, from what I know! Apply this to your brow bone, cupids bow and cheekbones for an instant lift to your face.


♡ Lipstick 

You all know by now that I am such a fangirl for Topshop's Infrared Lipstick! The orange-y red tone is so Summery and flattering on fair maidens! If you are super pale, a light pink lipstick will suit you when applied with your fingertips to add a light pop of colour. If you are darker, apply this same technique but with a darker shade of pink, such as Mac's Show Angel. The magenta tone will really suit darker skin!




Aaand there you have it! The essentials that will have you looking bright eyed and fresh, no matter how bad you feel on the inside! These few staples (paired with a lick of mascara and brushed brows) will be the 5 minute makeover that takes you from looking like Marilyn Manson to Marilyn Monroe!

I hope you enjoyed reading and as ever, thank you so much for all your lovely feedback!
