Gift Guide 2012: The Morning After Pick Me Up Look!

This look is for those morning-afters when you have a little bit too much to drink the night before... Which for me happened to be Friday night... On Saturday I woke up with a disastrous hangover, it literally was the worst of my entire life! Oh boy, it makes me feel terrible even thinking about it but lets face at least once in your lifetime you will have to wake up looking pretty scary, something like Samara, that girl from The Ring... And since over the festive time we all relax a little and let ourselves go, and you know, eat and drink more than we perhaps should - I though it might be a good idea to share what make-up I wear when I am not in my best shape but wouldn't want the entire world to know this by looking at me... 

To begin with, once you have managed to get back home and not be seen by anyone you know, lots of water and fresh air always help to flash out the toxins... I always take Berocca and try to sleep as much as possible... Get yourself very comfortable, have a nice long shower and put on your comfiest pair of pyjamas... Slowly you'll start regaining some energy, but I find hangovers completely drain your face of any life-associative colour and skin felt incredibly dehydrated... So today I made sure to apply Caudalie S.O.S. Thirst Quenching Serum and Nuxe Lip Moisturizing Stick after thoroughly cleansing my face... 

Because I had to infuse life back into my face I chose colours that instantly pick you up and make you look the opposite of what you feel, fresh and healthy! After I did my foundation I used a highlighter to make my skin look nice and glowy, I quite like my Bobbi Brown Face Highlighter Pen in Opal... Something simple yet chic for the eyes like Dior 3 Couleurs Glow in Nude Glow palette, just a wash of that natural colour all over the lid and the highlighter on the brow-bone... Estee Lauder Quick-Thick Eyeliner in Punker Black is my go-to fail-proof eyeliner!

The main actors in this play are Mr Tom Ford Blush and Miss Chanel Lip... I wore this lip combo to the Estee Lauder Christmas event, this is actually a lip look I have been most complimented on ... It is incredibly flattering, a beautiful orange red that gives you this very cute and chic mouth! First I lined and filled in the lips with Chanel  Precision Lip Definer in 56 Orange Intense, and then on top I applied Chanel Rouge Allure Lip Colour in 97 Incandescente... God I love this combo! The liner brings out the orange in the lipstick, and it ends up looking pretty matte and gorgeous! 

And as for the blush, of course I had to dig out the most lux product I could think of, Tom Ford's make-up range is just so glamorous and sexy, and that's exactly how it makes you feel... Tom Ford Cheek Color in 03 Flush is a fabulous bright peach that goes very well with an orange-red lip, both making your face look alive and delicious... And of course who wouldn't love to find a beautiful Tom Ford blush or lipstick or anything in their Christmas Stocking...
