You partied hard and woke up to see a zombie in the mirror. But don’t panic—these eight steps will have you looking like your fabulous, flawless self again in no time.
Targeted Eye Cream
After washing your face, use a targeted eye cream like Sisley's L’Intégral Anti-Âge Eye and Lip Contour Cream to deal with dark circles. Gently massage around the eye area for two minutes. Put the cream in the freezer for 15 minutes beforehand to maximise its effect, as the cold will help constrict blood vessels and reduce puffiness.
Super Hydrating Mask
To help replenish and moisturise your skin, apply a super hydrating mask like the Snow Fox Skincare Arctic Breeze Detox Cooling Mask and leave it on for 10 minutes. It's an instant pick-me-up for your skin, and the cooling effects will wake you right up so you can get on with your day.
Apply a tightening serum like La Prairie Skin Caviar Lift to shape and define the face. Apply by pressing with the palms of your hands from the centre of your face and slowly moving outwards, which helps relax features and prepare the skin for make-up.
Energising Day Cream
Seal in moisture with an energising day cream, like Clé de Peau Beauté's Energising Cream, which contains fruit extracts with vitamin C to revitalise the skin and keep it radiant and supple.
Minimise Sun Damage
Every model or actress—and basically anyone with flawless skin—will tell you the same thing: don’t forget the sunscreen. Tatcha’s Silken Pore Perfecting Sunscreen is invisible, lightweight and can double as a primer.
Apply a thin layer of foundation, like Estée Lauder’s Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Makeup, a water-based formula with anti-oxidants for a dewy look that covers any redness without looking patchy.
A Touch Of Blush
Use a fine, soft powder blush like Gucci's Sheer Blushing Powder to bring some colour back to your face and create a healthy, subtle glow.
