The makers of Zyrtec know that a red nose, watery and puffy eyes can alter how you feel. So, to help you get through this season with a fresh face that looks flawless at the height of allergy season, is celebrity makeup artist Jamie Greenberg who shares four easy-to-recreate allergy face looks:
Look #1: Inspired by actress Debra Messing who suffers from allergies is the Spring Starlet.
- To cancel out red redness, use a green primer and coppery brown eyeliner and eyeshadow to take attention away from watery eyes.
- Complete this look by applying a light flush of coral on your cheeks and a light coral pigment on your lips.
Look #2: Keep it simple this season with Spring Radiance. Use pastels and pinks to distract from watery eyes and redness.
- Lighter skin tones should use light pastel eyeshadows and darker skin tones should use an irridescent berry pink.
- Use a tinted moisturizer for dewy look on your skin, which also helps with puffiness during allergy season.
- Apply baby pink blush on your cheeks and a pink tinted balm on your lips.
Look #3: Welcome spring with a Sun-kissed Chic look that embraces the warmth of the outdoors .
- Use waterproof black liner on your top lids to define your eyes and then apply waterproof mascara.
- Apply a full-coverage foundation that tones down redness and corrects uneven skin tone.
- Apply coral/pink bronzer or for darker skin tones, a warm/orange toned bronzer on your cheeks.
- On your lips, apply a bold fuschia or hot coral. Dark skin tone? Choose warm undertones like yellow or peach.
Look #4: Easily turn your daytime look into a Gilted Glamour nightime look.
- Apply gold eyeshadow across the top eyelid and then apply black eyeshadow along the corners to achieve a smokey effect. Darker skin tones should blend a reddish hue to create a shimmery look. Follow with black eyeliner on the top eyelid and brown on the bottom to define your eyes. Finish with black mascara.
- Use a yellow or green-tinted concealer to cancel any redness.
- Lightly contour your face with a bronzer and use a pinkish-nude shade on your cheeks to counteract puffiness.
- Finish with a pink or nude lip stain or maybe a gloss with glitter for darker skin tones.
