Up All Night?

Comfort Zone Active Pureness Hydra Fluid

I love a good holiday shindig—it’s waking up the next day that gets me. But happily, thanks to the wonders of modern beauty science, no one has to know how groggy I feel. Here is my morning-after cocktail.


Comfort Zone Active Pureness Hydra Fluid ($40, comfortzone.it/en) Is it possible for skin to be simultaneously dry and greasy? When you’re running on four hours of sleep and a dinner of pigs in a blanket, the answer is yes. This moisturizing solution cuts the shine with starch while tightening and brightening with vitamin C.


StriVectin Clinical Corrector Anti-Aging Eye Illuminator ($29, strivectin.com) This concealer from the beloved skincare line StriVectin delivers a one-two punch to under-eye circles and bags with a combo of the brand’s signature repairing molecule, NIA-114, and luminizing pigments.


It Cosmetics Vitality Flush Stain Stick ($24, ulta.com) Never has a product been more aptly named. My shade of choice, Je ne Sais Quoi, breathes new life into death-warmed-over cheeks.


Pureology Fresh Approach Dry Condition ($24, pureology.com for stores) You’ve heard of dry shampoo. Now comes dry conditioner. I spritz it on to banish frizz and return the shine to my pre-party blowout.


Lancôme Absolue l’Extrait Ultimate Eye Contour Collection ($250, lancome.com) This little kit comes with a soothing balm, a massaging wand, and six Ultimate Eye Mask packets—each small rubbery cooling pad is infused with firming native rose cells that feel so darn calming, sometimes I use them without the other two products. Quel scandale! I know.
