Try: Living Nature Concealer
This discreet cover-up in its manly black packaging can be tucked away in your bedside drawer, and no one need know it exists. Apply a little mixed with a pea-sized amount of eye cream to achieve all-over, effective cover for dark bags. Work right into the edges of the nose and blend with your skin by dabbing gently. Your eyes will look instantly brighter.
Try: Shiseido Men Anti-Shine Refresher
Crowded rooms, bright lights, excess booze and over-zealous dancing; the prime causes of sweaty, shiny face syndrome. The solution? Shiseido’s skin-quenching, mattifying moisturiser – the foolproof way to keep your skin looking composed, even if you don’t.
The Eyebrow Groomer
Try: Tweezerman Slant Tweezer
The more you ignore it, the worse that unibrow’s going to get. Tackle the issue head on and get party smart with a Tweezerman tweezer. The slanted shape will ensure effective hair targeting. Just be sure not to go too wild with the removal and apply a soothing moisturiser to the post-plucking.
Try: Mont Blanc Legend
Heady, wintry and modern, Mont Blanc may be better known for its pens, but this long-lasting fragrance is my pick for the party season. With top notes of citric Bergamot and fruity pineapple leaves, a heart of Jasmine and woody White Cedar and a base of enduring Tonka Bean and Sandalwood – this scent will get you noticed before you even enter the room.
Try: Biotherm Homme Facial Exfoliator
Alongside drinking lots of water, the key to brighter-looking, hungover skin is all about effective exfoliation. Scrub away dead skin and immediately give yourself a lift with Biotherm Homme’s impurity-attacking exfoliator.
Try: L’Oréal Paris Men Expert Hydra Energetic
X-Treme Moisturising Gel Flash Bronzer
Given that its winter and you’re feeling fragile, you’re probably looking a little pasty. Quench your skin and give yourself a bit of extra colour with L’Oreal’s brightening, bronzing moisturising lotion.
The Eye Saver:
Try: Elemis Men Anti-Ageing Time Defence Eye Reviver
The skin around your eyes is incredibly sensitive and it’s the area of your face that’s most at risk from the effects of smoking and drinking. Give your peepers a leg-up with a hit of British brand Elemis’ Anti-Aging eye cream. Thick and nourishing, it’ll have you looking sharp before you can say ‘cirrhosis’.
