HELP!!

Does anyone one and tricks of the trade to get rid of hickies? Or hide them better then coverup? My bf thought it'd be funny to give me one and besides looking incredibly trashy I have to go to work in a couple hours and could be sent home because of it.

  • Make-up is the only thing I've ever heard of used to get rid of a hickey, which are really gross by the way....I can't stand hickeys.

  • A hickey is, for all intents and purposes, a bruise. Your BF broke the capillaries under your skin and caused bleeding. Nothing will make it go away except time...just like with any other bruise. Try using a concealer that is thick, and a shade lighter than your skin. Then dab it with powder you'd use for your face... and blend. It won't look perfect, but if people don't stare, it shouldn't be too obvious.
