Allergy-Proof Your Makeup


What's not to like about spring? The snow has finally melted, the trees are starting to bloom, and your killer fashion sense is no longer buried underneath layers of bulky fabric. But with all of those images of you lounging with an iced-latte under the sun swirling in your mind, it's easy to overlook springtime's biggest downside—"Sniff, sniff," sound familiar?—allergies!

All it can take is a little pollen to trigger enough itching, sneezing, and swelling to ruin your look. So you might want to stock up on antihistamines, tissues, and a few allergy-proof staples.
