I’m not especially proud of it and unfortunatly it is in a place that will be difficult to hide. I didnt notice it last night and my boyfriend claims that it was given unintentionally during the heat of the moment.
I feel like a bit of an idiot. I have to go to work tomorrow and I have no idea what to say if someone notices it. (There is no chance it will be un-noticed.)
Do you want to try to hide it with make-up? There is a cover stick you can get which has a green tint to it. Use that, then some regular base makeup. The green color covers the red of the hickey without making you look orange (and worse!). It may, however, end up looking like a bruise, or still like a hickey. Good luck.
Wear it proudly! Don’t flaunt it, but don’t go to extremes to hide it, either. If someone rude asks, just say that things got a little “frisky” last night, and leave it at that. Most will be jealous, and the others can go fuck themselves.
Don’t bother trying to cover it with make-up. It just makes it look more obvious. I remember a friend trying to do this. I wouldn’t have even bothered to mention it if it wasn’t for the make-up on his neck.
Apparently toothpaste works. Yep, sounds mad, and I’ve never tried it, but a mate of mine spent about 20 minutes rubbing toothpaste into her hicky when we were teenagers and she says it worked. (Ketchup to neutralise red hair dye sounds nuts too but that one does work, I’ve tried it!)
Otherwise, try make-up, but it will wear off without you noticing… ‘Has a werewolf been at you?’ my boss enquired one morning when I staggered in hungover and, em, marked. Chin up gal.
I am sure there is an actual thread around here dealing with octopus-like face hickeys and turkey basters. I read it. I am sure it was not a mad hallucination caused by snorting too much parrot feather dust. I remember it had advice on what to do with hickeys. Someone help me find it!
