The Morning After


Let’s face it: This season, very few of us are getting the amount of sleep and rest we so desperately need. Whether that’s due to a hectic holiday party schedule or the demands of parenting is another topic altogether. But I’m sure we can all agree that a healthy, well-rested glow is the overall goal here. If you’re on the fake-it-til-you-make-it beauty bandwagon (as I very much am), then this post’s for you. Here are my top, tried-and-true picks for achieving that full-night’s-rest look, give or take a few hours.

The-Morning-After-Collage-Products for the day after a holiday party

Above: Sometimes, the best you can do is pull your hair up, swipe on some highlighter, and give your cheeks a healthy glow. Here are some essentials to stash in your bag for touch-ups. Some of these products are new (Beauty for Real) and others are classics (YSL Touche Eclat), but all are practical necessities.

The-Morning-After-Collage-Beauty Products for Hangovers

Above: Much as we’d all like, there isn’t always time to spare the morning after a very late night. Skip the wash and opt for dry shampoo (and a bit of volume), add some shimmer to your lids, and swipe on the type of lip color that doesn’t require a mirror for application. A dab of cheek tint will make everyone think you slept for days.
