Allergy season is here and every single year between March and August I have the worst hay fever ever. Itchy eyes? Check. Itchy and sore throat? Check. Blocked nose? Check. I have it all and to top it off, I’m asthmatic so it’s double the fun.
I find wearing makeup throughout the summer near impossible because my eyes water so much. By the end of the day I have lines down my face where my foundation did sit because my eyes leaked it all away. It’s a waste of money and I look ridiculous every single day.
However, over the years I’ve realised to just give up on makeup and create a flattering and subtle look instead.
In this case, it’s more about skincare and less about the makeup side. Less is more as they say.
I’ve been testing out a new skincare routine recently and my skin has never better. Each morning and evening I use The Body Shop Tea Tree Cleanser. I then follow with applying The Body Shop Tea Tree Tone and then the Mattifying Lotion.
I do struggle with oily skin normally but this routine has really helped my skin massively. I stay matte all day long and my makeup sits perfectly on it.
I highly recommend these skincare products from The Body Shop for everybody with oily or combo skin.
Secondly, I only ever apply the L’Oreal Magique Lumi Primer. This just makes my skin look super glowy and fresh. Next I apply the Freedom Brow Pomade in blonde and then a touch of mascara to my upper lashes.
This is my final look. It’s super basic and easy to do but it’s so effective since I do have severe hayfever. I find that the mascara is good only on the top lashes and obviously, a waterproof mascara is even better.
