 FluMakeup

Flu season is here and hopefully you haven’t caught a cold or flu.

If you are sick, get plenty of rest!

When you’re ready to face the world, check out these makeup recovery tips to find out how to camouflage the last signs of your cold or flu.

Wear a Moisturizing Foundation

When you suffer from a cold or the flu, your skin may need extra moisture.

A tinted moisturizer or BB cream like Maybelline Dream Fresh BB 8-in-1 Beauty Balm isn’t drying like a powder, nor is it heavy like a liquid. It’s also quick and easy to apply (you probably don’t want to spend a lot of time on makeup when you’re getting over a cold!).

Cancel Out Red with Concealer

Red spots go hand in hand with a cold, especially around your nose. Benefit Cosmetics arsenal of correcting products from the Confessions of a Concealaholic kit like Lemon Aid and Boi-ing can help cancel out red spots on your nose and around your eyes.

To help with any dryness or cakiness around the nose, go for one of the latest high-tech skin relief lotions. Soothe from Diane Lai is an organic Shea butter-enriched lotion with natural oils to prevent discomfort and inflammation.

Try Peach Eye Shadow for a Little Warmth

For a quick fix for eye color, use a versatile product like Cream Colour Base from MAC Cosmetics in Shell.

This translucent cream color with a peachy beige shimmer is recommended as a shadow base but can also act as an all over color.

Wear a Blush With a Bit of a Glow

It’s common to become paler when you’re sick, so you may need a bit of colour and highlighter to create a healthy glow and subtle sparkle.
Clarins Blush Prodige Illuminating Cheek Colour is a two-tone compact with sheer blush and matching shimmer for highlighting. Sweet Rose is a universally flattering shade of pink that adds natural looking color.

Apply Lip Balm with a Hint of a Tint

Dry, chapped lips are almost guaranteed when you suffer from a cold, so ordinary lip gloss or lipstick just won’t do.

To give lips color and treat dryness, use hydrating protection like Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm in a neutral shade (I like Honeysuckle). This lip balm also has moisture rich ingredients like Shea butter and Vitamin E to fight against winter dryness.

Drink Plenty of Fluids to Get Over Your Cold or Flu

You can’t flush a cold or flu out of your system by drinking fluids, but they can definitely help you recover your health.

Water, juice, clear broth, or warm lemon water with honey all help to prevent dehydration (which ultimately shows up on your face).

    Great tips. I’ve not been sick this year (knock on wood) but if I’m sick, I definitely need a bit of colour on my cheeks to bring life back to my face! And yes, CONCEALER is my best friend!
