Remember when you could party all night and be raring to go the next day without any problem?

After you turn 50, you have to face the facts. It’s not easy to go out and celebrate and stay beautiful. When you’ve partied the night before, you can expect a blotchy complexion, tired, puffy eyes and dull hair.

However, by applying a few simple tips and a little willpower, you can look fantastic throughout the holiday season!

To show off a fresh, party-proof complexion, you must first avoid a hangover. You should also make sure you drink a lot of water to stay well hydrated. When you get up the next day, drink a large glass of water with a few lemon slices added to taste. It’s the best way to start the day off on the right foot and well hydrated!

You’ll find many good treatments in the cosmetics section that are sure to help you maintain your healthy glow.

Here are my five easy steps look your best the morning after a big celebration!

Apply makeup and cleanse: It’s essential to remove your makeup before going to bed. However, when we get home late, it can be easy to forget this step! Don’t panic. One lapse does not a habit make! When you get up the next day, remove your makeup with micellar water, such as Jouviance's 4-in-1 Micelle Solution. Then, thoroughly cleanse your skin with a cleansing brush and mild cleanser. A-Derma Oat Milk Soothing Foaming Gel is soap-free and won’t dry out your skin.

Lift: Time to break out the Coup d'Éclat Lifting Ampoules! These complexion enhancers are effective and keep their promise to reveal radiant, luminous skin. A single application unveils a clearer complexion and a well-rested look.

Moisturize: Complete your care routine by applying a good moisturizer to restore skin tone. You can kill three birds with one stone with IDC REGEN EXPRESS, an all-in-one anti-aging cream-serum you can apply to your face, eye area and neck. This treatment moisturizes your skin and instantly reduces lines, wrinkles and signs of fatigue. I’m a big fan of the tinted version for its instant complexion-boosting properties.

Blush, mascara and glossy lip balm can brighten your face in just minutes!

Apply makeup: The morning after a party or celebration, go easy on the makeup. Heavy makeup can make you look tired, so avoid weighing down your complexion and eyes. Aim for subtle. Highlighting your cheekbones with a bit of cream blush and adding a dab of mascara to your lashes and a glossy coat of lip balm can brighten your face in just minutes!

  • L’Oréal – Professional 909 Black Mascara
  • Maybelline – Dream Bouncy Blush
  • Annabelle – Lipsies Lip Balm

Style your hair: Brush your hair well, then use a dry shampoo to revive it and add volume. If your hair is short, sweep it backward and away from your face. If you have long hair, tie it up in a loose chignon.

And, finally, top off your look with a beautiful and colourful sweater that makes your complexion glow! There you have it. You’ll never feel nostalgic about being 20 again! Assert your right to look and feel beautiful at any age this holiday season, even the morning after!

I’ve always had a passion for fashion and beauty. I share my tips, tricks and favourite finds for women over 50 on the “La P'tite Madame” blog. Getting older doesn’t mean letting yourself go! I’m over 50 myself, and I feel more beautiful and serene than ever before!
