Although your mind might be in recovery mode from the mayhem of the silly season, signs of weekend mischief may have your face sprouting fine lines, dark eye circles and blotchy, dry skin. So how do you disguise these pesky buggers? Here are a few beauty remedies and quick fixes that will shift you from gross to gorgeous so you can put your best face forward for that Monday breakfast meeting.


Want to get rid of the puffy eyed monster that rears her hideous head after one too many vodka and limes? Throw those cucumber slices out (they're so old school)! It's now all about Clinique's De-puffing Eye Massage Stick which is the bomb for massaging away bags and simultaneously brightening and refreshing the eye area. Even better, wait five minutes for puffiness to decrease and then apply concealer as needed. Touché!


A hangover wouldn't be a hangover without the standard day of being couch-potato and catching up on as many episodes of 'The Real Housewives of NYC' as possible. Why not kill two birds with one stone during ad breaks and get rid of those fine lines and eye bags by throwing on Estee Lauder's Stress Release Eye Mask which only takes ten minutes to absorb around the delicate eye area. The aloe, cucumber and caffeine extracts will soothe, diminish puffiness and reduce appearance of lines and wrinkles so you'll look like you've just had an eye lift (kinda).. a bit like those housewives you're watching on TV right now.


Let's not lie. Over the festive season, we're all prone to excessive drinking, late nights and awful karaoke with your arms draped around Bruce who you've just met at the bar (we've all been there). Despite the fun and games, such antics can leave our skin badly dehydrated and in need of thirst quenching treatment. Enter Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Masque and now you're best buds with your skin again. The hydrating, oil-free gel restores critical moisture to dry skin without unwanted oiliness. Your skin will have never felt more supple, soft and darn thankful you finally came to your senses.


Now that you've banished your eye puffs, hydrated your skin and officially saved your eyes from a hangover meltdown, it's time to rid yourself of those over-sized sunnies and that tacky blonde wig you’ve been sporting for optimum disguise. But before you do this, dab on some makeup to brave the big bad world outside. Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat is the concealer to end all concealers and will have people questioning why you look so bright and bubbly - (after all, wasn't it you that balanced a tray of martinis on your head last night)? With a few steady strokes of this highlighter (remember gently pat into skin, no rubbing!), dark circles, fine lines and signs of fatigue will be on their merry way. I'll take two, thanks.


If you thought hiding a hangover was harder than finding Louboutins at 85% off, think again! When you've spent the night before partying like a rock star and it's time to head back into the office, nothing else is more important than hiding your hangover so your boss doesn't go all Charlie Sheen-style crazy on your behind. Your best option is a yellow-based foundation to absorb broken capillaries or red, blotchy skin. Try Bobbi Brown's Skin Foundation SPF 15+ which provides excellent coverage, lasts all day and is ideal for all skin types. Most importantly, it'll give you your dose of SPF 15+ which is tres important! Team with a bit of light blush or bronzer on the cheekbones and a swipe of liquid eyeliner and you're all good to go!
