We’ve all had those days.
You either wake up sick with a dreaded cold (totally NOT your fault) or you wake up on your boyfriend’s parent’s bathroom floor with a raging wine headache and hangover, not knowing the day or the time (hypothetically speaking……..) This one IS your own fault.
Regardless, you feel awful inside and out. While it takes time, meds and McDonald’s cheeseburgers to help the inside feel better, I have a few tips to help the outside look presentable when you actually feel like dying.
1- Water- drink lots of it and get a shower. Pretty simple. Drinking alcohol dehydrates you. You need to refuel and cleanse those toxins inside and out. Also if you can, try and remember to wash off your makeup the night before.
2- Depuff swollen and blood shot eyes with either cold spoons or teabags. Use some soothing eyedrops. Apply eye cream and a good concealer. Finish with Mascara. All these things will help you look more lively and less “Walking Dead like.”
3- Your face. Fix it. Apply concealer, tinted moisturizer or whatever to hide any imperfections. Then apply a nice pinkish blush. So even when your nausea makes you feel as white as a ghost, you’ll still have a little bit of colour in your face so you don’t appear see through.
4- Apply some Moisturizing Lipstick. Pink is probably the best bet here as well. Just enough to again, give colour to your Casper face. This part does wonders. Trust me.
5- Wear your hair neat and pulled back. Apply some dry shampoo and get it out of your face somehow. Neat ponytails and topknots can act as a face lift.
6- Invest in some Big, Dark Sunglasses. (Do not wear these indoors though. It’s a clear giveaway you’re hungover…or that you’re a big loser, Don’t be that person!)
7- Throw on some nice earrings. The bling will distract onlookers from your hot mess-iness.
8) This may be a little self explanatory but, brush your teeth and pop in a peppermint. Peppermint has natural properties that can sometimes help with nausea and in your case, beer breath.
If all of these fail to help with your appearance, just call it a day. Throw on some Netflix and hide in your room. Ha!ha!

Ps- I must say, I’m a big believer in making yourself look your best when you feel your worst. It may be hard to do for some, I understand that. But if you look a little better, I definitely think you feel better. Hope this helps anyone who may have had a little too much fun last night or plan to in the near future…*cough* Shauna *cough* 😉
