We all detest having a cold or any other type of allergies. You have this hot date and your trying to get ready, but suddenly, your eyes are watering, and you're struggling with your bag, looking for a tissue to relieve your runny nose.
Guess what? A bad cold doesn’t need to ruin your beauty look.
1. Contour to combat a puffy face. When we wear black, we look slimmer. In the same way, shading and highlighting can help us chisel and define a puffy face. Using highlighter can also help draw attention to specific features, like cheekbones, and away from others.
2. Reduce soreness. Too much tissue use can result in a dry, sore nose. By applying a calming moisturizer, like an argan balm, we can soothe and hydrate skin.
3. Make eyes pop. To make your eyes appear larger, the trick is to apply dark liner to the upper inside lash line. This will define the lash line and open the eye area. To make the eyes look wider and less red — especially when dealing with an allergy-affected face — apply a flesh tone or white eyeliner to the bottom water rim.
4. Embrace bare beauty. If you want to give your eyes a break from makeup, just using waterproof mascara and fake lashes allows you to "wake up" your face without having to wear any additional eye makeup.
5. Soften your look. When trying to counteract puffiness, straight hair is a huge no-no. To balance out a puffy face, opt for wavy styles to move attention away from puffy cheeks and soften your look.
6. Sweep allergens away. Using excess styling products like hair sprays and gels can often trap allergens. Instead, pull your hair back into a smooth braid or topknot to keep your hair and allergens away from your face.
