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