Make-Up Cheats For Hangovers, Hideouts, Last-Minute Dates or Parties


Sure, beauty is skin deep; but it won’t hurt if you looked your best with easy makeup tricks, right? And, here are few real-time situations where you would want to play your ace game.

“Arrgh, I f****** swear I am never going to have another drink in my life”

It’s a weekday, and you wake-up feeling all groggy, and of course, you don’t want the world to know about your crazy night out? Follow these simple makeup tips to hide that hangover.

  • Say it with a rose: Splash chilled rose water on your face and let it dry naturally. This will give your skin look all the moisturiser it needs to look fresh.
  • Bring out your primer: Let away the drained or pale look with the help of a primer. This will even the skin tone and give it a smooth finish.
  • Play with your bronzer: A bronzer on the face and blush on your cheeks will add colour to your skin and make it look alive.
  • Conceal your dark circles: Use a concealer to hide dark circles and a light shade of eyeshadow to camouflage those puffy eyes. Here, avoid dark shades as they catch too much attention.
  • Brighten up your look: Use bright lipstick shades like coral or pink to draw attention away from tired eyes.


“Baby, I have a surprise waiting for you under your office building”

So, when your husband/boyfriend drops in at work with a surprise date plan just play along and get date-ready in minutes.

  • Put on a fresh face: Freshen up your face with a good face wash or cleansing milk.
  • Prep yourself up: Use a BB cream for a light and fresh look, and then top it up with a blush on the cheeks.
  • Shine your way: A shimmer eye shadow and a deep eyeliner are best suited for a romantic evening out.
  • Make it a bold night: A bright and bold lip colour for a sexy pout completes the face routine.
  • Wear your bounce: Pep your hair by brushing them backwards for added volume.


“Now that the meeting is cancelled, let’s go get a drink instead”

So, when your evening meeting is called off and the team decides to take it easy with an impromptu party plan. Go along, and transform immediately into a star with these tips.

  • Get an instant glow: A powder or mineral foundation are quick to apply for smoothened glowing skin.
  • Wing your eyes: A liquid or a gel eyeliner in winged application shapes your eyes and provides a dramatic look. Complete your eye makeup with coats of mascara on your upper lashes.
  • Highlight your cheekbones: A blusher with silver (for fair skin) or golden (for dark skin) highlighter over your cheekbones add glamour and sheen to your face.
  • Go bold, of course: A bold lip colour is perfect for that diva look.


“I don’t have time for a beauty routine”

Here are all-time beauty hacks that will ensure you’ll always look your best…

  • Powder your hair: No time for hair wash? Dab either loose baby or face powder on a big makeup brush and apply it to the roots of your hair to remove extra oil and dirt.
  • Get an instant glow: For an instant apple cheek glow, use a sheer nude color lip gloss on your cheeks and lighten up!
  • Condition your legs: For a quick and unbelievably smooth shave, use conditioner on your legs.
  • Tame your frizzy hair: Use hair spray on a round brush and comb along from roots to tip for smooth, well-finished look.
  • Fight the sweat: If you are on the run, don’t forget to spray some perfume on your hair as well to get rid of the sweat odour.
