No one is endorsing a long night of drinking! But hey, it does happen. And even a couple glasses of wine can show up in our skin the next morning. The bottom line is, alcohol is dehydrating. You have to replenish the fluids on the inside and the outside! My advice: if you can drink a glass of water for each serving of alcohol, your body will thank you. And chug water before you go to sleep. Not too much that you’ll have to get up a lot to go to the bathroom because sleep is important for your skin too. Then try these tricks to make the most of your makeup the next day instead of having it work against you:

TIP #1: Switch from a foundation or mineral powder foundation to a tinted moisturizer. You want one that really hydrates your skin like this one ($$) or this one ($). A BB Cream or a CC Cream is great too if you pick one that isn’t mattifying and doesn’t just sit on top of the skin.

TIP #2: Bring a little life back to your face with a Face Gloss or Face Balm. After applying tinted moisturizer all over your face and neck, rub a few drops in between your fingers then pat and tap your fingers under your eyes, along your cheekbones and anywhere that needs a little love. This step really does the trick!

Then finish the look with Cream Blush instead of Powder Blush, a Pink Lip Gloss (in shade #15) or Tinted Lip Balm (not the time to rock a bold matte lip!) and Mascara. Drink  electrolyte water throughout the day, switch to high anti-oxidant green tea, take vitamins and you’re good to go!

Don’t you just want to cry when you drop your brand new compact and the powder shatters into a million little pieces? But wait! Don’t throw it out and call your losses. You can absolutely put humpty dumpty back together again! And while you’re at it, grab your old cream shadow, blush or liner that has dried out, cracked or shrunk and bring it back to life too. Here’s how to do both: (more…)

ON THAT NOTE

Dear everyone,

It’s the weekend. We hope you’re going to be doing something fun and exciting. Know what’s not fun and exciting? The fact that bacteria collects on the surface of your phone while in your purse. That bacteria makes it’s way to your face and causes blackheads, blemishes + sometimes full breakouts. It’s like rubbing your face in the bottom of your handbag! Ew. Interestingly, skin care experts + dermatologists can usually tell which side you use most when talking on the phone. Take a quick minute to wipe it down with a dab rubbing alcohol on a cloth! It will kill the bacteria and save you a lot of time in the long run!
