How to Look Hot With a Cold: 6 Concealers to Kick Redness to the Curb
Let's face it, cold and flu season is upon us - and with all those sniffle-wielding germs buzzing around, the always-dreadful red nose is surely not too far behind.
And, while, yes, Rudolph is totally our favorite reindeer, he's totally not our best bet for a beauty icon. That means it's time to hunt down a product that will help kick any signs of sickness off our kisser, and allow us to look good in spite of feeling bad.
There are two important things to remember before raiding the beauty shelves in search of a concealer to camouflage rosiness - first of which is to hydrate. When under the weather our skin often becomes a victim of dryness. Counteract the effects of the flu with a mega dose of moisture (we love Peter Thomas Roth's Camu Camu Power Cx30 Vitamin C Brightening Moisturizer, but any rich cream will work).
In addition to applying face lotion, a green-based primer is also mega beneficial. This shade neutralizes any pinks or reds and makes for a smoother, more supple surface for other cosmetics. We here at High Fashion Magazine use Make Up For Ever's HD Microperfecting Primer as our go-to.
Now that your skin is prepared, it's time to pick a concealer. Each of the options below offer highly-pigmented formulas for maximum redness coverage without the threat of creasing, moving or caking up. Rejoice! And, hide no more - thanks to these cosmetic creations, having a cold never looked so hot.
