Ten-Second Takeaway

With parties and shaadis lined up this season, back-to-back nights of glamming up, staying up late, drinking, and dancing is unavoidable. And because we’d hate to see you miss out on all the fun, here are some quick beauty tips on how to cheat your way to look refreshed the next morning and get ready to gear up for another late night.

Don’t Go To Bed With Make-Up On

You’re either too drunk to remove your make-up or maybe it’s too late in the night {more like early in the morning}; the temptation to go to bed with make-up on is at an all-time high. But the only way to look fresh for tomorrow’s festivities is to remove your make-up before heading to bed and letting your skin breathe. On these days, I suggest stocking on make-up wipes as the next best alternative to cleansing your face. Keep them at close reach such as on your dresser, vanity table, or bedside table to avoid excuses.

Avoid Panda Eyes

When you do have energy, follow these steps to remove your make-up properly, especially waterproof kajal and mascara.

Take a few cotton pads and soak them with your make-up remover. Make sure they’re soaked with enough product otherwise you’ll end up rubbing your skin more instead of allowing the make-up remover to do its job. Hold one of the soaked cotton pads over your eye, and leave it on for a few seconds. This allows the remover to break down the make-up before you wipe it off. Gently slide the cotton pad off and see how much make-up comes off in just one swipe.

Nourish Your Skin While You Sleep

If you’ve managed to cleanse your face, simply apply coconut oil around the eye area, directly on your lashes, as well as your brows. It keeps the skin hydrated, supple, and stimulates the growth of lashes.

Chug Lots Of Water

There’s no escaping the drinking and dancing this season; you’re bound to have a cocktail or two {or three, or four; who knows}. The thing is, alcohol dehydrates the skin and it will take its toll the morning after. Something that’s easy enough to do is for every glass of drink you consume, chug a glass of water to help you rehydrate.
