When seasonal allergies attack, they not only affect the way I feel, but also the way I look. From a puffy face to a red nose, I don’t even want to go outdoors! Fortunately for allergy sufferers like myself, ZYRTEC® has partnered with celebrity makeup artist Jackie Gomez to give women back their confidence despite the puffy face that make you want to hide indoors all day.
My biggest worry is that my girls will inherit the allergies both myself and my husband suffer. Particularly when it comes to Em, with her strong Latina olive toned skin. ALLERGY FACE® doesn’t look good on anyone, and shows even more on a darker skin tone, like it does on Papa.
I don’t normally wear makeup. Sometimes it seems as if it’s making my face look even more puffy and drawing unwanted attention to myself. Gomez, an allergy sufferer herself understands, which is why she created six celebrity-inspired looks that will help Mama’s like us!
My fave is the Bronze Beauty. This easy-going look is meant to help combat the appearance of a puffy face by defining the face’s natural shape. Get the look:
Cheeks: Using a bronzer, shade the temples of the face underneath the cheekbones and under the chin to thin out the face, giving it a soft contoured look. This will help reduce the appearance of a puffy face.
Eyes: Instead of using traditional black/brown eyeliner, use a blue eyeliners to make the eyes stand out. Draw a line from the inner corner of the eye across the lash line. Stop at the outer corner of the eye, and then lightly smudge the line with a cotton swab. Use the same cotton swab to lightly line the outer crease. This create definition and give the eyes some shape. Further define the eyes by applying extra coasts of mascara on both the top and bottom lashes. A waterproof formula will last all day and is ideal if you’re dealing with watery eyes caused by allergies.
This simple, yet sophisticated look is great for any occasion and quick enough to do even on the busiest of mornings. Whether you are attending a fall wedding, enjoying some family time outdoors or headed to a meeting, this look will amaze, and standout!
