  • Blemish management 101

    There's nothing like a breakout to make you feel self-conscious and ruin the effect of your perfectly-applied liquid eyeliner, foundation, tube mascara and blush. With each outbreak, it might seem that zits are the only thing you can focus on in the mirror. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to ensure that your face remains clean and clear to reflect your natural beauty.

    Prevention
    As with most problems, acne breakouts are best handled by preventative measures. This means washing your face daily to get rid of dirt, oil and other impurities that could clog your pores. It also means moisturizing to prevent your skin from getting irritated. Avoid touching your face or using makeup and skincare products with ingredients that could be too harsh for your skin, and always use sunscreen to prevent damage that could lead to pimples.

    Treatment
    If you manage to break out despite your best efforts, there are ways to treat the problem and prevent acne from coming back. Use an over-the-counter cream with benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid to get rid of zits when you're at home. If you find yourself in a situation where a product like this isn't readily available, Allure Magazine suggests using hydrogen peroxide solution to eliminate bacteria and aspirin to get rid of the spot. Just crush one tablet and mix with water to form a paste, then leave it on overnight.

    Coverage
    While your blemish is being treated, it might be necessary to cover it up in the meantime. Cosmopolitan Magazine suggests using a perfectly-matched concealer to cover the zit before you apply foundation. Use a concealer brush with bristles that can get into the nooks and crannies of the blemish, then use it to carefully blend the product out into the skin surrounding the mark to make it disappear. Apply foundation as usual, then tap a bit of loose powder on the pimple to prevent any oil from melting off your coverage.

    With these tips, you should be able to handle any breakout that might come your way. If your case of acne is very severe however, you might want to visit a dermatologist to get a prescription for a stronger treatment. Otherwise, you should end up with clear skin that will provide the perfect backdrop for all of your blinc cosmetics, whether it's eyebrow mousse, liquid eyeliner or tube mascara.

    4. Bold prints. These days, prints are everywhere, and they're bigger than ever. Glamour points out that oversized floral prints, geometric shapes and even bird silhouettes are all fair game. Pair a bold piece with understated black pants and a simple solid-colored top, or mix and match prints in the same color family for a head-to-toe statement.

    5. Anything white. There's nothing like white to break you out of your dark winter fashion slump. Harper's Bazaar reports that anything crisp, tailored and structured will fit in with spring's fashion choices. Pick up a white jacket with a statement collar or a pair of tailored cream pants.

    6. Metallic basics. Rather than keeping your sparkle to your accessories, Glamour recommends choosing metallics basics to wear with any outfit. Pick up a sparkling jacket, a pair of shiny pants or a shimmering skirt. Worn with neutrals, they look super fresh.

    7. Peplum skirts. If you're a woman who loves showing off your legs, you'll be thrilled with Elle Magazine's pick. The peplum skirt is a versatile item that can go with a number of different tops. Choose a bright color like pink and rock it with your favorite heels.

  • Tips to help you combat allergy season

    There aren't many things that are less cute than red, watery eyes and a blotchy face during allergy season. If you're one of the women who wakes up every spring morning with puffy eyes and a stuffed-up nose, you're probably looking for ways to make yourself look a bit more presentable. Here are some tips to help you clear up your symptoms and appear like yourself again.

    Prevention
    The best way to handle allergies is to cut down on triggers that might be causing your symptoms. MSN Health recommends identifying what you're allergic to by going to an allergist for a skin test. That way, you'll know exactly what's causing you to react and you can take steps to eliminate the problem.

    It's also a good idea to keep your windows closed if you're allergic to the pollen outside, and frequently clean your bedroom - including the mattress, carpets, curtains and pillows to make sure no spores are lurking.

    Treatment
    Spa-sensations.com recommends talking to your doctor about an allergy medication that can help you deal with your typical reactions. There are many varieties these days, so you won't have to worry about feeling as groggy as you look. MSN Health also suggests taking the meds before allergy season takes its hold - check out the National Allergy Bureau to find out what the pollen count is in your area to help you decide when to start.

    If you're frequently blowing your nose, you may notice a bit of chafing around the area, which can be fixed with a gentle oil-free moisturizer. A good lip balm may also be necessary to avoid flaking, and an over-the-counter bottle of eye drops can help to fix any redness.

    Coverage
    Once you've taken the steps to prevent and treat your allergies, you can choose makeup products that can help you spruce yourself back up. Spa-sensations reports that a yellow-tinted concealer can help you cover up raw, red areas on your face. Nude or pink-toned makeup can help wake up your complexion.

    To make your eyes appear whiter, Prevention Magazine suggests using blue eye makeup. Pick up blinc's blue tube mascara and liquid eyeliner to neutralize red and make the whites of your eyes pop. As an added bonus, these formulas are guaranteed not to run or smudge, no matter how watery your eyes get throughout the day. You won't have to worry about looking like a raccoon - even on the most pollen-filled days!
