I've suffered from allergies ever since I can remember, which puts a real damper on spring. It is such a great time of the year, with the perfect weather and such beautiful blooms all around. But when you have to deal with allergies, it's super hard to enjoy all the beauty around you. For me it is mostly the red, watery, itchy eyes and the incredibly stuffed nose that I have to keep wiping all day. Then because I wipe it all day, it gets super red and swollen, which makes me look and feel like Rudolph. That is where ZYRTEC® helps me so much during these months. If I can alleviate the symptoms then I won't have as many side effects from them.
The makers of ZYRTEC® know that allergies don't just affect the way you feel but the way you look too. They have partnered with celebrity makeup artist Jackie Gomez to help Latinas handle ALLERGY FACE symptoms: red nose, puffy face and watery eyes. Because Jackie Gomez is a fellow allergy sufferer, she knows what it's like to deal with these dreaded side effects and has come up with some beauty looks to help us camouflage ALLERGY FACE. You can find all of Jackie's looks on the ZYRTEC Facebook page. I have tried a few of the tips on each of the looks she came up with and they really do help mask those ALLERGY FACE issues. My favorite of her looks is one that is very much "my" look, with a lot of brozer, a winged cat eye and a bold red lip.
As per Jackie's look, bronzer across your nose helps to reduce the appearance of a red nose. I also applied bronzer liberally on my forehead, under the cheekbones and my chin. A green tinted primer also helps reduce the appearance of redness on nose and cheeks. A light shimmery shadow helps to define your eyes and adding a winged line helps draw attention to your eyes. By finishing with a bright, red lip you are also bringing the attention to your lips. I like this look because I can wear it daily and I feel like my ALLERGY FACE is at bay. This look really focuses the look on my eyes and my lips and keeps them away from my big, red nose.
ALLERGY FACE has many beauty challenges, but with ZYRTEC® and Jackie's great looks, you can still look amazing! Check out Jackie's celebrity inspired looks and pick the ones that you are most comfortable with and put them to the test. Soon you'll be looking great, and when you look great it's hard not to feel pretty great too!
