Hate your hangover face? Sibley Berty knows how to make sure you’re not looking as rough as you feel.

Heaven knows that when we arise with short-term amnesia after what had began as ‘just a few’ that getting ready for the day ahead can feel like an impossible mission. Tumbling clumsily out of our beds we wipe away the remains of fallen mascara – only to smudge it more – and avoid the birds nests’ sitting on our heads. However, with Halloween having come and gone there’s no longer a reason to resemble zombies. All you need is a pop of colour to bring back some liveliness into the face.

We all know that with drinking comes dehydration which makes our skin sallow and dull. The best way to cure this is with a statement blush to illuminate the face. Though it may seem alarming, the brighter the better, and colours like watermelon, tangerine and ruby are appropriately electrifying for this look. For that extra injection of radiance, gel and cream blushers work best as they have dewy finishes. To upgrade the look, add a slick of gloss to the lips in a matching colour. The best part about this make-up is that regardless of how gloomy you feel, you’ll barely have to lift a finger.

Turquoise and lime are perfect colours to use if you want a major pick-me-up, whereas metallic colours like bronze and gold are more delicate and befitting for a sultry day to night look. If you fancy something more subdued, you can use a brightly coloured liquid liner along the upper lash line, or pencil liner along the lower lash line – a makeup statement that is seriously on-trend right now.

If you’d like something equally as irradiating but less obtrusive, you could apply a silver cream or powder eye shadow to the inner corners of your eyes, transforming your eyes from darkly to sparkly.

With such easy, effortless ways to revive your face, there’s nothing to say that you can’t look as fabulous the morning after as you did the night before.
