How to hide the hangover with @rachleary

Though you may be feeling rough after a big night, as Rach says, your skin and bank account don't need to suffer too. This easy and affordable five-step routine will help banish the bags under your eyes and brighten your complexion to give the impression of a full night's sleep, no matter what time you actually got in at!


24 hour hair with @bethanyfosbery

On the night...

The key to good looking hair is keeping it healthy, moisturised and clean. Bethany uses the Garnier Ultimate Blends Shampoo, Conditioner and Hair Mask before a night out to keep her locks lightweight and soft in feel and looking super shiny. The naturally-derived, vegan range is enriched with banana extract that eliminates build-up, excess oil and dirt and keeps both the hair and scalp hydrated.

The morning after...

Bethany keeps second day hair a secret with the L'Oréal Paris Elvive Dream Lengths Air Volume Cleansing Dry Shampoo. Perfect for refreshing last night's locks, the shampoo absorbs excess oil without any residue. The quick-fix formula is lightweight and leaves your hair looking more voluminous and feeling fresh.

    • Shake the can before using.
    • Holding the product 15cm away from your head, spray the Dry Shampoo into the roots of the hair.
    • Massage the product into the roots and brush through.



Long-lasting makeup for the late nights with @_sophmartine

The last thing you want to be worrying about on a night out is your makeup. @sophmartine has nailed the night out look with the best long-lasting products that won't budge, run or fade until removed with a makeup remover.
