12 Beauty Tricks to Hide a Hangover

  • Rehydrate the Dehydrated

    Begin by moisturizing that dehydrated skin with a brightening moisturizer like Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Boost. This lightweight serum’s fresh orange scent will help you wake up! When your skin is lacking in moisture and a healthy glow, this is the perfect first step.

  • Depuff and Brighten

    Attack that under-eye puffiness (from those late-night eats) and darkness from lack of sleep with a supercharged eye cream. Origins GinZing Eye Cream with caffeine will stimulate lymphatic drainage, decreasing puffiness—and the luminescent particles add instant radiance!

  • Color-Correct Lifeless Skin Tone

    When you’ve been friendly with cocktails, your skin is dehydrated and your circulation is slower, thus giving your skin a more gray than gorg appearance. A pink-toned primer does the trick to brighten things right up! Benefit’s That Girl revives dull skin.

  • Illuminate Dull Skin

    Fake a glow with a tinted moisturizer like Stila Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer. It has just enough light-reflecting particles to give your skin a natural radiance without looking greasy. Lightly set with powder.

  • Conceal Redness

    Dot a creamy, hydrating concealer like Benefit’s Fake Up Concealer on these key places: under eyes, corners of the nose and mouth, above the top lip and on any blemishes or dark spots. Your skin is likely drier than usual, and this concealer won’t cling to any of the dry patches.

  • Brighten Lids

    An eye primer with concealing properties, like Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden, cancels out redness, veins and discoloration on the lids. The eye area is among the first to tell all after a night of drinking.

  • Liven Up Your Cheeks

    Breathe life back to your cheeks with blush. Choose a more nude/spice shade like Revlon Powder Blush in Naughty Nude so as not to further accentuate any excess redness in the skin.

  • Subtle Shimmer on Eyes

    Sweep a pearly neutral shadow over lids to add just a touch of light. Try NYX Cosmetics Pearl Mania in Mink for a suble golden glow. Stay away from a smoky eye today as you likely have remnants from last night, and we are trying to fake a wide-awake effect.

  • Open the Eyes

    Several quick coats of a buildable formula, like CoverGirl Flamed Out, will frame your eyes in fringe and make eyes appear alert and flirtatious.

  • Define Brows

    A quick coat of Benefit's Gimme Brow requires zero precision—something you’re lacking on mornings such as these.

  • Wear a Bold Lip

    A bright, fun lip color like Revlon Color Lacquer Balm in Tease is your biggest helper today. The juicy shade totally distracts attention away from bloodshot eyes and sallow skin.

  • Set and Refresh

    Spritz yourself with an invigorating facial spray like LATHER Cucumber and Ginseng to instantly refresh your look.

More is inspired by the savvy friend every woman needs. The one who gets you to try on that outfit you’d never pick out for yourself. The one who stands by you, whether you’re growing out your bangs or going through a breakup. The one who makes you feel happier, smarter, you-er.
