Though I do love Spring, I definitely do not love all the seasonal allergies that come with it. The constant sneezing, red, swollen, itchy eyes and bloated face do not make for a good look. That is why when spring arrives I have to pull out a few tricks that will help hide my "ALLERGY FACE" and allow me to look good, despite my allergies. 



Today I am sharing the few tricks I practice to help hide those red puffy eyes, stuffy nose and swollen face. 

  • eye drops : These should always be in your makeup bag, especially during allergy season. No matter how beautiful your makeup is or how amazing your outfit, if you have red eyes, it's just not going to look good. 

  • say goodbye to heavy foundations : I know your first reaction when faced with a red blotchy face is to grab the heaviest full-coverage foundation you own. But when your body is busy fighting these allergies, adding heavy cosmetics can actually aggravate the situation. It's better to opt for a tinted moisturizer, a BB cream or if possible just a light moisturizer and skip foundation completely. 

  • tea is good for the eyes as it is for the soul : I found this tip last year online and it has really helped me with my super swollen eyes. Soak two green tea bags in hot water and then place in the refrigerator. Once they are cool apply them to your swollen eyes for about 10 minutes. The caffeine helps reduce redness by constricting the blood vessels. Chamomile tea bags have anti-inflammatory properties and can help reduce swelling too. 


In an effort to help women look their best despite their allergies, the makers of Zyrtec have teamed up with beauty and fashion expert Carmen Ordoñez (@VivaFashion) to share beauty tips that will help us all fight ALLERGY FACE. I am not a big makeup guru so these tips were super insightful and I am already practicing a few of them. I love the eye brightening tip especially.
