Fall Allergies are No Fun
As I write this, it’s a Friday afternoon and I’m feeling like garbage, thinking about how I’m going to pull it together to go out tonight. For the past few days, fall allergies have been working their “magic” on me, and it’s really starting to take its toll on my body, making me feel and look bad. I’m thinking about what to do to make my eyes seem less red and swollen and how to perk up my lackluster skin. From what I have heard, I’m not the only one suffering with fall allergies, even though fall has not even officially arrived yet.
Makeup Tricks Can Make the Difference
The makers of ZYRTEC® recognize that allergies can affect not only the way you feel, but also how you look. To help women look fabulous even during the worst of allergy season, ZYRTEC® has partnered with celebrity makeup artist Jackie Gomez to help women tackle ALLERGY FACE®, those beauty challenges associated with allergies, like puffiness, runny nose, and watery eyes. Jackie Gomez has created a variety of celebrity-inspired looks to help women disguise the symptoms of ALLERGY FACE® and regain their confidence.
With my fall seasonal allergies being so bad that it’s affecting my appearance, I decided to mask the symptoms by getting creative with my makeup. Luckily, I had my ZYRTEC® ALLERGY FACE® “Get the Look” book to provide some ideas. I decided to try out the dramatic Fox Feline look using makeup I already had.
This look combines dramatic accents and behind-the-scenes tricks to make a red nose and irritated eyes less obvious. Eyes and lips are the focus with this makeup look. Here are some pics of the finished product:
Trying out this look really did help me to look better, despite feeling so bad. Even though my eyes still look a little swollen and red, applying concealer, a light eye shadow color called “Sugar, Sugar,” and some liquid eyeliner helped to perk them up. The red lipstick is a quick bolt of color and helps to distract others from noticing any allergy-related symptoms.
