5 Makeup Tips to Use This Allergy Season 5 Makeup Tips to Use This Allergy Season 5 Makeup Tips to Use This Allergy Season

Your face is puffy, your eyes are red and watering, and you can’t stop sniffling—you know what that means: Allergy season is officially here. And as much as we love that the weather is finally warming up for spring, we can’t help but hate the complexion complications that it brings along with it. After all, with so many places to be and people to see, who has time to sniffle and sneeze all throughout the day? Luckily, there a few easy makeup tips that can help you disguise common signs of allergies like redness and under-eye bags.

Allergy Season Makeup Tip #1: Apply an Instant Eye Smoother

Come springtime, chances are you be experiencing some under-eye puffiness. The L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Miracle Blur Eye helps diminish the appearance of crow’s feet, fatigue, and puffiness, while working to correct dark circles and signs of aging around the delicate eye area over time. It has an instant blurring effect on crow’s feet, fatigue signs, and puffiness/under-eye bags, while it can help reduce the look of dark circles, puffiness, and lines with continued use over time. As the last step in your skin care routine, dot on a small amount to your eye area with your fingertips and gently blend in.

Allergy Season Makeup Tip #2: Use a Green BB Cream

You know the deal: When you’re constantly using tissues, that can lead to skin redness around your nose. The good news is, you can use green to help neutralize the look of redness, since they’re opposite each other on the color wheel. The L’Oréal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream is formulated with green color transforming pigments infused in an ultra-light lotion to counteract the look of redness. It has four actions in one: It neutralizes the look of redness, corrects skin color for an even-looking complexion, hydrates for all day moisture, and perfects your complexion. Consider BB a one stop shop—there’s no reason to follow up with foundation.

Allergy Season Makeup Tip #3: Hide Dark Circles with Peach Concealer

Ah, dark circles, how much we detest thee. Before getting bummed out thinking that you’ll have to rock a zombie look all season long, just reach for a peach color correcting concealer. The L’Oréal Paris Infallible Total Cover Color Correcting Kit comes with four pastel concealer shades (peach, green, yellow, and purple). Use the peach shade sparingly under your eyes to help cover up dark circles, then follow up with a flesh-toned concealer.

Allergy Season Makeup Tip #4: Contour Your Complexion

By now, you’re probably well aware of how a little contouring can help make your cheekbones look seriously sculpted. It’s also a great makeup strategy to have at your disposable when your face is looking a little puffy. Think about it: Contouring can help make your face look slimmer! Use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Total Cover Concealing and Contour Kit to highlight and contour your face. Use a concealer two shades lighter than your skin tone to highlight and one that’s two shades darker to contour. Apply concealer with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Contour Blender, drawing lines around your cheekbones, jawline, and nose. Blend the lines in circular motions.

Allergy Season Makeup Tip #5: Embrace the Under-Eye Makeup Trend

2017 is all about accentuating the lower lash line with an array of liners and mascaras for an upside-down look, and allergy season is all about giving you something to involuntarily tear up about. So, look on the bright side: These two seasonal trends can work together! To get an under-eye makeup look, simply pick up an eyeliner pencil or pen in blue—like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eyeliner in Vivid Aqua—and line, baby, line. Bonus: It’s waterproof, so you don’t have to worry about a post-sniffle touch-up! Just be sure to gently remove your eye makeup at the end of the day. Try a no-rinse cleansing option like the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser Waterproof – All Skin Types. Pour some out onto a cotton pad, hold the pad over closed eyes for a few seconds, then wipe.
