How to Fix Every Awkward Beauty Date-Night Moment in a Snap
So You Have a Hickey
The dilemma: Your date happened to be a sexy vampire, and following those three hours of snogging, you now have a superobvious hickey on your neck.
The solution: Dig for a tube of lipstick and use the cap, and some pressure, to massage the hickey as soon as you notice it forming. Massage the area for about 20 seconds every 15 minutes. This helps break down the clotted blood and makes the hickey disappear more quickly.
After you're finished with the massage, reach for some color-correcting concealer. Since hickeys are bluish red, use a yellow or green concealer to counteract the color, such as NYX Color Correcting Concealer Palette ($12). Apply the concealer with your fingertips in a tapping motion, which deposits a lot of concealer without making it look caked or obvious. Apply your foundation, and then set it with a finishing powder. We recommend cult favorite Make Up For Ever HD Finishing Powder ($36).
