We may be welcoming the spring weather with open arms, but our allergies surely aren’t. In comes the pollen and swollen faces! If you suffer from allergies, then you might find it a bit hard to wear makeup. And with all these wonderful spring collections coming out, we’re not having it!
The makers of Zyrtec know that allergies can affect not only the way you feel, but also how you look. To help women look fresh-faced and flawless during the height of allergy season, the brand has partnered with Celebrity Makeup Artist Jamie Greenberg to help women tackle their Allergy Face — beauty challenges that can accompany typical allergy symptoms like a red nose, puffy face and watery eyes.
Read on to find out how to create 6 springtime makeup looks that are both seasonably trendy and perfect to conceal your worst Allergy Face.
Camouflage redness by using it to your advantage! Use a red or pink blush and apply it to the apples of your cheeks. Lightly dab concealer on your red nose to lessen the intensity. Add the same color you added on your cheeks to your lips for a natural (and even) look.
Play down a red nose by enhancing your eyes and using highlighter on your skin. Actress Debra Messing gets Allergy Face too, and uses this makeup trick! Use a concealer on your T-Zone to conceal redness and mix highlighter in with your foundation Add bronzer to conceal redness as well.
Color-correct redness by contouring your face. Dab a green-tinted concealer, then lightly apply a skin-colored concealer over the green and on any other uneven areas. Contour the face with a highlighter by lightly shading features to make them look symmetrical. Apply bronzer to the areas where the sun would naturally hit your face.
Watery eyes call for a standout lip! Draw focus to your beautiful lips with a contoured face. Use a red lip pencil to create the shape of your lip. Then, apply red lipstick for a classic Hollywood look.
Black is so slimming, not just for your body, but for your eyes too! If you are suffering from puffy eyes, embrace a smoky eye look by opting for black and gray shades. Add black liner to your inner lash line and apply loads of mascara.
