Getting sick is probably one of the most irritating things that one can experience. What’s even worse is that you would look so horrible that you wouldn’t even want to step out of your house. However, if there are certain situations where you just have no choice but to head out, you can always look at your utmost best.
All you need is just a little bit of make up.
Drinking lots of water during sick days can help your body get rid of unwanted toxins from your body. Your face and lips will get really dry so slather on some moisturizer and lip balm.
2. Boost Your Immune System
In order for you to be up and running from taking a sick day or two, you would need to make your immune system as strong as possible. Don’t forget to take your daily vitamins, sleep early (get at least 7 hours of sleep a day), and visit your doctor if your symptoms get worse.
3. Use A Yellow-Toned Creamy Concealer
Using a yellow-toned concealer will help in covering up your dark circles. Yellow tones can effectively hide the purple undertones. Green concealers, on the other hand, effectively hides redness on the skin. Apply the concealer on your under eye area by placing a 7 pattern, starting from under the eye circles up to the sides of your nose. Next, apply a lighter colored concealer on your eye circles. Don’t forget to put a little bit of concealer on your eyelids so that they will appear less translucent. Blend everything accordingly.
4. Less Is More
When it comes to doing make up during sick days, it is important that you should not pack on a lot. Your face will look all the more cakey which will thus make you look even more sick. BB creams are packed with a lot of moisture and coverage that it is sufficient enough to cover your whole face without being cakey. A drop or two of BB cream is more than enough.
5. Apply A Very Natural Looking Eye Makeup
Putting on a smokey eye look especially when you are feeling a bit under the weather is not advisable because it will just make you look tired. Apply light colored shadows on your lids. Use a light shimmery shadow to highlight your brow area to give it more lift. Add some white eyeliner on the corners of your eyes to make your peepers look brighter.
6. Use A Cream Based Blush
Using a cream blush works wonders on dry skin. Apply this on the apples of your cheeks and blend well. You can also add a highlighter and highlight the areas of your face such as the tops of your cheeks and the bridge of your nose.
7. Apply A Moisturizing Lippie
Your lips can get really dry especially when you are sick, that’s why applying a tinted lip balm, or lib butter can give your lips the moisture that it needs.
Getting sick can make us look and feel awful, but we can still look our best with just a few make up tricks. As long as you feel that you can go up and about, you will definitely find these tips useful.
