BEAUTY FOR PERKING UP A FLU FACE

BEAUTY FOR PERKING UP A FLU FACE

It is no fun having to sneeze and wipe and basically talk or breathe when you’re down with the flu eh ? I sound like my voice is 5 times deeper and I look like a cry baby with watery eyes !

As much as I don’t like it, I’ve realised that a bit of makeup actually helps my mood, and it makes me a bit more alive, both physically and mentally ! And I need that for these days. So, here is what I would use on days when I’m down.

I make sure that I use a cream eyeshadow base with a powder eyeshadow on top,this ensures that through my watery eyes, the shadows stay on longer. Another thing I love to do is use a cooler cream shadow with a warmer powder shadow (like below) or vice versa, I find it looks more complex that way.

A bit of highlighter to make me seem like I’m in the pink of health *NOT*. And a lipstick a bit darker than my natural lip color, something that just brings some color back into the face.

My go to products are:

Tom Ford Platinum cream eyeshadow

(Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerize are a good alternative, with Marie Antoinette being a warmer version of Platinum)

NARS Isolde Eyeshadow

Urban Decay Sin

NARS Pigalle

 


What is your makeup ritual for sick days ? XO
