How to hide a hangover with Too Faced

Last Updated: 10/02/2022

With the end of Dry January and multiple lockdowns comes the quick return of social plans that can quickly descend into drunkenness (“Just one more rosé…”), and Tuesday too-often transforms into ‘boozeday’. So if you’re waking up on a Wednesday (or Thursday or Friday or Saturday) and feeling less than fresh, reach for these aptly-named {Hangover} heroes from {Too Faced} to banish the give-away signs of one-too-many spritz *hic*…

Essentially your beauty Fairy Godmothers, Too Faced’s {Hangover Primer} and {Hangover 3-in-1 Setting Spray} quickly disguise dullness, puffiness, dehydration, (you name it)… waving a magical, blurring and brightening wand that helps you look refreshed (when you’re feeling like death). Although they can’t combat your headache, this power couple works wonders for lacklustre, wine-pickled cells – restoring a luminous, well-rested glow that belies your late night misadventures.

Purifying, energising and refreshing, Too Faced’s Hangover {Wash Away the Day Cleanser} is a must-try to start and end your day. Jam-packed with hyaluronic acid, lime peel, apple extract and ginger root, this not only thoroughly cleanses skin to remove all traces of make up, impurities and excess oil, it also lusciously hydrates and rebalances skin. The perfect prep for primer and make up, you’ll love how flawless your skin looks after using this.

Banish dull, tired skin with a little helping hand from Too Faced’s Hangover {Pillow Cream}. It’s powered by the brand’s exclusive skin-reviving Dream Complex – a blend of supercharged minerals sourced from real falling stars, coconut water, sea kelp, mango seed butter, avocado oil, vitamin B, and other nourishing and renewing ingredients like moisture-locking hyaluronic acid. Ultra-luxurious, this hydrating cream is a must-try, and is even available in a teeny tiny ‘Doll-Size’, so you need never be without it – pop one in your bathroom cabinet, one on your bedside and one in your pocket for good measure.

Boasting a cocktail (*shudder*) of soothing and refreshing coconut water and probiotics to recover misplaced radiance (you left it on the dancefloor, with your left shoe and your dignity), the {Hangover Primer} will help you look fresh in a flash. The featherweight formula boosts moisture levels to keep your skin beautifully dewy, while paving the way for seamless (and long-wearing!) foundation. Meanwhile, the brilliant {3-in-1 Setting Spray} then boosts the ‘bounce’ – plumping cells to diminish that drawn, washed-out look while it fixes your make up in place. Miraculously multi-tasking, mist before, during or post-make up application, then spray throughout the day to help replenish skin cells’ reservoirs and give yourself a ‘tszuj’ (it’s perfect for battling the post-lunch slump).

Indispensable essentials, this super-charged range will rush to your rescue whenever you need to dismiss all the visible hints that you’ve been up to noooooo good. With these in your handbag, feel free to go forth and enjoy that illicit third (fourth or fifth!) drink and Thank {Too Faced} when these save your face on the morning commute the day after… They can’t find your shoe though. You’ll have to solve that single-handedly *sigh*…
