How to hide a hangover with Too Faced

It’s that time of year when balmy summer evenings quickly descend into drunkenness (“Just one more rosé…”), and Tuesday too-often transforms into ‘boozeday’ (blame sunshine). So if you’re waking up on a Wednesday (or Thursday or Friday or Saturday) and feeling like Withnail (or I), reach for these aptly-named 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. 

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.

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 duo 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*…
