Happy Makeup Monday Friends! It’s been a while since I have talked beauty and I am really excited about today’s post. Last Friday, I attended the early access Gilt City Warehouse where they had celebrity makeup artist JAMIE GREENBERG sharing Spring makeup looks. And not just any looks but actually ALLERGY FACE MAKEUP LOOKS.
With allergy season at it’s worst this year, your makeup can irritate your skin or effect how your makeup goes on. Watery eyes, red nose, puffy face, itching. All too common symptoms which can really effect your makeup application and wear throughout the day. But luckily I learned a few tips from Jamie Greenberg and wanted to share them with you all today.
Jamie has partnered with ZYRTEC and created 4 signature looks that combat allergy face. These looks allow you to look fresh faced and flawless while the allergies are in full force. The DEBRA MESSING SPRING STARLET, SPRING RADIANCE, SUN-KISSED CHIC, & GILTED GLAMOUR.
We all have a signature beauty look. For me,I like a look that is easy to do and can go from day to night. Full coverage but lightweight. So GILTED GLAMOUR is my look of choice.So keep reading below on how you can achieve this look that can be worn everyday with allergy face.
STEP 1: PRIME YOUR FACE
Before applying any makeup, I like to make sure my skin is moisturized and primed. I love using FRESH COSMETICS because its natural ingredients and doesn’t irritate skin. Super hydrating that lasts all day so when you allergies flare up, dry skin is a side-effect. Once my skin is hydrated, I prime the skin with SMASHBOX PHOTO FINISH PRIMER WATER. Silicone, Alcohol, & Oil free which is safe for your skin and allergy free,
STEP 2: EYES
I like to my eyes first so the shadow doesn’t get all over my foundation. Gold shadow is my go to. It makes the eyes pop, looks great on all skin tones, and can go from day to night. For the base, I have been using LAURA MERCIER CAVIAR STICK EYE COLOUR (which is dermatologist tested) in Copper all over the eyelid. This is a great base that allows the gold shadow to pop.
Next, I use BAREMINERALS TRUE GOLD eye shadow all over the lid where the base is. You can use the shadow wet or dry. I use it dry and I have very bad allergies in my eyes and no problem, even with it being a loose shadow.
Lastly I top the eyes with mascara, I am obsessed with BENEFIT ROLLER LASH MASCARA. Of all the mascaras I have used, this one never irritates my eyes or makes them water. It’s long lasting, non irritating, widens the eyes, and lengthens the lashes. You can check out my review on this mascara HERE.
STEP 3: SKIN (foundation, powder, blush)
Now that your eyes are done, it’s time to get your skin looking just as good. I love a good full coverage that isn’t heavy. I recently got turned on to COVER FX CUSTOM COVER DROPS which is liquid foundation and it’s amazing. Specifically made for sensitive skin and free of the 5 inflammatory: mineral oil, fragrance, parabens, gluten, & talc, which is deal for allergy face. A little goes a long way, so use a few drops all over the face and blend.
Once the foundation is set, I love to set it with a TOOFACED PRIMED & PORELESS PRESSED POWDER. Translucent in color, this powder adjusts to any skin tone and helps set your foundation without having that cakey finish. I apply it with a large powder brush so its very light. Oh did I mention it is paraben free so it doesn’t effect or cause allergies.
Last in the skin step is blush. I like to add a little color so the cheeks look bronzed and sun kissed with hints of peachy pink. GIORGIO ARMANI FLUID SHEER is my go to for a sheer liquid blush. Plus you can use it on your eyes and lips.
STEP 4: LIPS
Speaking of lips, we are at our final step. To finish of your look, lips must have color. Since I am using a liner, I opt for a bold lip. And since I was gifted with the awesome COLOUR POP IN BLOOM LIP/CHEEK SET created by Jackie Greenberg herself, I had to use it for my look. The lippies are incredibly smooth and soft, which make for an easy application. Oh and they are super long lasting so you will have color all day. So again you are ready for day or night.
Hope this beauty post will help with allergy face and how to create an easy, everyday look. Please note THIS POST WAS NOT SPONSORED BY ZYRTEC & THIS REVIEW IS BASED ON MY OWN OPINION.
