Hangover Help!

Happy Sunday!

What a fun weekend.  I spent the day on Saturday working with an amazing bride.  She was so poised and calm and all of her bridesmaids were fun and so nice to work with.  I did the makeup for the bride and bridesmaids.  Nicole worked on the hair...we make a great team :)   After the wedding, we hurried out the door to make it to Willow's Grand Opening Party.  Jade and her husband have worked so hard on the renovations and it shows.  The place looked GORGEOUS and the party went off without a hitch.  Kudos sister and congratulations!

Now, it's Sunday morning and after the fun night that I had (and I'm sure most of you are right there with me), I'm feeling a wee bit hungover and tired.  I'm going to give you a few hints to help with recharging your batteries after one too many cocktails.

As soon as you wake up, start chugging water and keep drinking--ahem, water!--throughout the day.  Plain fluids help reduce facial puffiness and counter the dehydrating effects of alcohol.

Pop a wet washcloth into the freezer before you step into a cold shower.  Yes, I said cold: you need to stimulate your whole droopy self.  After the shower, lie down with the chilled washcloth over your eyes to reduce puffiness.

Apply luminizing face primer to instantly restore radiance lost at the party the night before.  I like Smashbox Luminizing Face Primer

Retails for $35

To make your eyes look as alert as possible, try adding a little dab of white shimmer powder on the inside tear duct and under the brow bone.  MAC Shroom is amazing :)

Retails for $15

Add a healthy dose of navy blue mascara.  A deep navy shade gives eyes a brighter, more awake appearance.  Este Lauder makes an amazing deep blue mascara.

Retails for $21

A pop of pink on the apples of the cheeks and on the lips gives the illusion of a fresh face even when you're feeling plowed under.

Bobbi Brown blush in Pale Pink $23
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Pink Whisper $5

This should help.  Hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday Funday! Be safe!
