Tips On How To Prevent Allergy Face! #ALLERGYFACE #ZYRTEC #Ad

This post is part of a sponsored campaign on behalf of Latina Bloggers Connect and the makers of ZYRTEC®

Hey All!

It’s that bad time of year again! It’s allergy season and allergies can affect not just how we feel, but also how we look.  Many women experience what we call ALLERGY FACE™.  It’s when you get a puffy face, red nose and watery eyes with allergy symptoms. I have to say I suffer greatly from allergies and I also get really red puffy skin especially around the nose.


It usually happens around the nose and eyes because I live with a tissue box next to me this time of year. It’s all because of the allergies.  According to a recent survey by the makers of ZYRTEC®, 96 percent of women suffering from allergies experience ALLERGY FACE™.


My tip for getting rid of allergy face is I take something like ZYRTEC® to fight the symptoms of allergies and try to use a great cover up and soft tissues. The less you can irritate your skin wiping the better.

The makers of ZYRTEC® have partnered with beauty and fashion expert, Carmen Ordoñez from, to help women combat “ALLERGY FACE™”!

Check out video one of a three-part, bilingual video series on in which Carmen shares her personal beauty tips to take on ALLERGY FACE™ beauty challenges below.


In this amazing part one video, “Tackling ALLERGY FACE™, One Tip at a Time, With Carmen Ordoñez,” Carmen introduces her tips to help disguise a red nose, a puffy face and watery eyes.

Her tips include:

How to Disguise a Red Nose: Use a foundation or bronzer with a dewy or shimmery finish instead of a matte finish, which will only highlight dryness.
How to Contour a Puffy Face: Using an angle brush, apply a bronzer with brown undertones parallel to your jawline to help contour your face. Make sure it’s only one or two shades darker than your natural skin tone as you don’t want to overdo it.
How to Distract from Watery Eyes:  Dab a white or silver shimmery eye shadow in the inner corner of your eyes.

These are such amazing tips that I will be using for sure. I’ve always known I should use more bronzer, but I wasn’t sure if it would work. I now think I should really give it a try after seeing this video. I also love the tip to dab eye shadow in the inner corner of your eyes. I would have never thought to do that.

Some other useful tips Carmen had to share are:

To help your Nose: To help offset redness around your nose, apply a corrector or primer with a green tint, followed by your foundation.
To help your Face: Add a pearly nude eye shadow to the top of your cheekbones to help them stand out. This will help distract from your ALLERGY FACE™ and illuminate your face.
To help your Eyes: Draw attention away from puffy eyes by defining your upper lids with a navy liquid liner. Go for a stylish cat eye, which is a favorite among celebrities and has been all over the fashion runways. Start at the inner corner of your eye and create a wing effect once you get to the outer corner of your eye.

Be sure to be on the look out for part two and part three of Carmen’s video series, which will be released in the summer and fall. In the meantime, be sure to follow Carmen at @VivaFashion on Twitter and check her blog for her latest ALLERGY FACE™ tips and tricks.
