5 Beauty must-haves you need to combat the morning after

After all of yesterday’s late night shenanigans (and perhaps the long weekend too for some of you out there), we wouldn’t be surprised if you turned up to work today feeling a tad hungover and/or drained. If dark undereye circles and dry skin are plaguing you this afternoon, refresh your skin with these beauty essentials so you can look and feel your best:

Caudalie Grape Water is one beauty product that even celebs and makeup artists swear by. Give your skin a quick hydrating boost with 100% organic grape water extracted from pure grapes. You can either use this as a toner, setting spray and facial mist depending on what your skin needs. The best part? It is perfect for sensitive skin as well.

For an intense recovery treatment in a span of a few minutes, one drop of Chanel Sublimage L’Extrait is all you need. Designed for the most strained and weakened skin, its active ingredient (Vanilla Planifolia) regenerates, repairs and protects your skin for soothing comfort and softness.

Dark undereye circles are perhaps the biggest bane of anyone who’s only had four measly hours of sleep the night before. Fret not, for NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer will help with pigmented and buildable coverage for your undereye area, thanks to its light-diffusing technology that helps to diminish fine lines and signs of fatigue. 

We know how it feels to wake up with a saucer-sized zit that popped up overnight, especially so if you’ve been eating way more CNY snacks than you should be. Bobbi Brown Skin Nourishing Glow Foundation is an emollient lightweight cream foundation you can use to give your skin a seamless finish. Its collagen-enhancing ferments help to soothe and ‘lift’ skin, along with star-shaped and spherical powders to reflect light and give your skin a luminous glow.


A foolproof easy way out to achieving colour to your pale complexion? Dab a little of Benefit Cosmetics Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain on your lips and cheeks and blend it lightly without the use of any applicators. Its smudge-proof formula ensures a budge-less look that can take you from day to night.
