If you’re suffering from hay fever, it can be hard to keep your make up in place as a result of symptons such as; sneezing, a runny nose and itchy eyes. If you’ve got a special occassion/interview/first date coming up and you need your make up to look flawless, dont panic!
I’ve put together a few product suggestions along with some great techniques you can use to create longevity.
- Apply an eye base to keep your eye make up in place such as Pixi Eye Bright Primer (£12.50)
- Stick to neutral/warm tones, purples and pink tones shades will enhance the redness in your eyes
- Use a creamy or liquid eye shadow as it’s less likely to smudge such as Bobbi Brown Long wear (£16.50)
- Define your lashes with a Mascara that contains no fibres or fragrance, try No7 Sensitive Eyes(£11.50)
- Buff Mineral Foundation and powder onto your skin, it won’t slide off and is brilliant for sensitive skin. I use Bare Minerals Original foundation as it contains 100% minerals (£23)
- Carry a pot of vaseline with you to moisturise dry areas around your nose and help prevent pollen from entering your nostils
- Pick a bright lipstick to place the focus onto your lips, not your eyes.
- Take care when removing your make up in the evening, use gentle fragrance free skin care and soothing eye make up remover.
