BWA has a few makeup tips to hide everything that happens to your look after a night of partying hard this party season – dehydrated skin, under eye bags and an overall exhausted look are easily fixed with these simple tricks.
1. Keep your skin clean and hydrated with a cream cleanser that removes impurities without stripping moisture. Remove any eye-make up that stayed overnight with a cotton pad and gentle eye-make up remover.
2. To relieve swelling and puffiness of the eyes, place ice-cubes in a washcloth and hold under your eyes for 5 minutes. Then gently apply a cooling, eye-cream to freshen up.
To remove redness, we recommend eye-drops from your local pharmacy.
3. Moisturise entire face and neck with a light-weight cream that relieves dry, dull skin without feeling greasy. Add primer to the bridge of your forehead, nose and chin.
4. Use concealer to balance out dark circles under eyes. Yellow based colour concealers are best to correct dark areas. Then add a touch of shimmer into your regular foundation for an all-over-the-face instant radiance.
5. Cream blushes are better options over powder ones in this instance as they create a glowing look to the apples of your cheeks. Apply with circular strokes moving away from your face.
6. Brighten your eyes by rimming your inside bottom lid with a white pencil or dab a highlighter on the inner corners of your eyes and under your brow bone. Curl your lashes and apply black mascara.
7. Finish off with a rosy or coral coloured lippie to compliment your now fresh, glowing look! Plus it’ll detract away from your tired looking eyes if need be!
