Oh. Your. Aching.
Yes, you partied like a rockstar last night, and while you may be feeling the effects of it mostly in your head and stomach, your skin is probably suffering a hangover, too. Make sure you do a couple of things this morning to help that Beauty Hangover:
Makeup. We are sure, yes, positive, that you stumbled into your apartment, kicked off your shoes, maybe hit the bathroom to, uh, you know, then fell face first into your pillow to pass out.
