If you’re going to party the entire weekend and fight a nasty hangover, you’re skin’s going to talk. We have some solutions that might help you conceal your wild weekend aftermath. Puffy eyes and ruddy skin are not what one wears to work on Monday! So while you take some days to catch up on your sleep, we have some make-up tips to help get you through the week.
Prime the Primer
Before wearing make-up, use a primer. It evens the skin and conceals the under-eye bags. A silicone based primer is most recommended.
Try: Clinique Pore Minimizer Instant Perfector (₹1,050), MAC Mattifying Gel (₹1,157).
A good concealer is a must in order to hide the eyes that certainly speak for themselves! Puffiness, redness and dark circles are most common consequences. Mostly a concealer with a hint of yellow would look more natural than the pink formula.
Try: Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer (₹6,300), Clinique Advanced Concealer (₹3,600), Bourjois Brush Concealer (₹1,407), L’Oréal Touche Magique Concealer (₹500).
Pile the Pillow
While you are getting your beauty sleep, just make sure to keep your head elevated. Laying your head flat leads the fluids to accumulate under your eyes causing the puffiness. So sleep with two pillows under your head to lessen the puffed eyes.
Get the Glow
Use a bronzer or blush to hide the sleep-deprived skin. A touch on the cheeks, forehead and chin and you should have the sun-kissed, healthy glow.
Try: Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Soft Shimmer Bronzer (₹3,235), Bobbi Brown Bronzing Power (₹2,310), Lakmé Absolute Sun Kissed Bronzer (₹1,164), Mac Fleur Powder (₹1,350), Lakmé Absolute Day Blushes (₹550).
If you want to take the cheaper way out, then count on your kitchen. Try resting some cool green tea bags or cucumbers around your eyes. They lessen the irritation and puffiness of the eyes and make you feel refreshed.
Opt for Serums
Serums are highly recommended these days; even more than creams. These anti-oxidant packed formulas plump up the dry skin cells. They moisturize the skin cells and reduce redness.
Try: Olay White Radiance Intensive Brightening Serum (₹1,260), Estee Lauder Perfectionist (₹5,253).
Make your lips the center of attention. Opt for a bright coloured lipstick like red, maroon or pink. It will make your tired skin less noticeable.
Hope these tricks help you out!
