Why you should skip heavy makeup after a night out

December 1st, 2012 | Contributed by:

You might want to skip the heavy makeup after a big night out!The holiday season is full of awesome parties, which means you might find yourself spending more nights than one indulging in cocktails and staying up past your bedtime. But the next morning, chances are you won't look your best – unless you take it easy on your makeup routine.

While you might feel inclined to cover up dark circles with heavy concealer and apply tons of makeup to distract people from the redness of your eyes, you'd be making the problem worse.

Alcohol and not getting enough sleep can both suck the moisture right out of your skin, which can make it dry and dull. Putting lots of product on top can enhance any flakes and make you look more tired.

Instead, opt for a tinted moisturizer rather than your regular foundation, which will moisturize while giving you light coverage. If you need more, use a dab of concealer just on the spots that you need covered.

Then, skip the brown or black eyeliner in favor of a nude eyeliner, and use it on your inner rims to make your eyes look brighter. Add a shimmery champagne eyeshadow and a bit of mascara, then add a tinted lip gloss. No one will ever know what you were up to last night!
