Post-Party Next Morning Essentials - How to be Brunch Ready!

Have a little too much fun last night? If you celebrated at a wedding or just had a fantastic night out, these quick steps will transform your late night cocktail hangover into a beautiful brunch face! So brew yourself some coffee (Step 1), pop some ibuprofen (Step 2), a follow these steps to look alive after a big night out!

After you've had a few sips of coffee, make sure you're starting with clean and moisturized skin! Make sure you remove any left-over makeup from that smokey-eye that looked so great last night, your dark circles wont need any extra help!

Start with moisturizer. You can skip this step if you're really rushed, but it really only takes a few seconds. Like your body, alcohol will dehydrate your skin and bring out those red broken capillaries so its important to replenish the much needed moisture!

Next, move to your base: your foundation, tinted moisturizer, or BB cream. In this case, a BB cream might be a better option because it will help restore your skin. Apply your base all over, including your eyelids.

Then you'll want to spot conceal with your favorite concealer or under eye brightener. Apply to any areas or break outs that need extra coverage. You'll also want to focus under the eyes, to awaken, brighten, and de-puff.

Apply the under eye concealer in a triangle starting from the inner corner of your eye down the side of the nose and under the eye 3/4 of the way and blend it out. (See below)

For under eye concealing and brightening I'm obsessed with YSL Touché Éclat (I call it my magic wand!), it can awaken anyone's eyes and make them look like they slept like sleeping beauty for 10 hours! Whatever product or brand you use, the placement still works the same to achieve a similar effect!

The last steps are to add mascara (optional) and your favorite pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses and you're alive and looking well for brunch!
