There are times when you are not well and recovering from an illness. The signs of sickness show up on your face for a long time, even when you are about to recover. So, how to look beautiful when you are sick or recovering from it? There are some simple tips that you can try to look beautiful and hide your dull skin even in sickness.
8 Makeup Secrets From Professional Makeup Artists:
#1.USE MINIMAL MAKEUP:
Of course, packing your face with makeup will not make you feel any better while you’re sick, so the first of my makeup tips for when you’re sick is to try to keep your makeup use to a minimum. The last thing you want is loads of mascara and eyeliner irritating your already itchy and puffy eyes! You’ll be constantly trying to rub your eyes and blowing your nose, so the less makeup the better. Your goal is to use makeup to cover up your symptoms and still look fabulous, but keep it as simple and natural as you can.
#2.Use Tinted Foundation:
Using tinted foundation adds a glow to your face, when your are sick. It can also be used during winter days, when the sun rarely shines and there is no fresh air for your skin, resulting in dryness. Using tinted foundation will make your skin look good during winters too.
It’s important to set your foundation with a powder for a long lasting effect. This can either be a translucent or color powder – according to your preference. Of course, you will want to continue applying the powder throughout the day when you see your face getting oily. However, since the skin tends to be very dry when we’re sick (with blowing our nose and rubbing our eyes), try to keep the powder use to a low. You want to avoid getting patchy, dry skin!
#4.Ice On Eyes
Due to viral infections, your eyes may get puffy and smaller. To make your eyes look bigger and remove puffiness, use ice cubes. Wrap an ice cube in a thin cotton cloth or a plastic cover and then gently place it over your eyes for 5 to 20 minutes.
#5.BLOT, DON’T POWDER:
We always have to powder our face up throughout the day to get rid of any oiliness. However, when we are sick, our skin is extra dry and sensitive. Using a powder to get rid of oils will look and feel worse. Try using blotting papers (very cheap from drugstores) and keep blotting throughout the day! This will absorb any oils you may have built up, without creating dry skin and patches on your face.
#6.Avoid Nude Or Light Shaded Lip Gloss:
If you like to wear a light lip shade or gloss, avoid it when you are not well. It can make you get a more sick look. Put some bold colours on your lips instead when you are sick. This will make you look vibrant and classy.
