@Nikki... now that i'm starting to look more normal and less reddish... I've been using peach blushes because it doesn't add more focus to my nose...hehe
@Britt... I use the petroleum on my lids, nose & lips at night so when I wake up those areas are soother.
@Farrah-- I will definitely have to try the A&D ointment because my nose is now peeling. And yes my lips are beyond chapped... I've been using my lush lip scrub to rub off the dead skin everyday!
@ Jane... Waterproof everything for me! Mineral makeup during this time has become my best friend...lol.

Usually my sick consists of watery eyes, so I tend not to put nothing on my eyes, because the liner will smudge or come off, and most of my mascara will run (although I should try waterproof next time.)
Usually when I'm sick, I'd do a light foundation (powder, mineral, TM). I most def have to fill in my brows. And possibly some chapstick. Either than that, when I'm sick, I look like hell. LOL
A&D Ointment around your nose, it will heal it pretty quickly. Also, moisturize the hell out of your lips. I don't know about anyone else, but my lips get ridiculously chapped when I'm sick, and it's a dead giveaway that I'm under the weather.

Usually when I'm sick, I use a tinted moisturizer and a lip stain on my cheeks and lips (if you're feverish, products tend to melt off/not last on me), and a clear mascara or petroleum jelly on my brows and lashes.
opt for peach blushes :p

@Steph... Exactly why I need to put on at least some because being sick I already look dead...hehe. But so far that's what I've been doing eyeliner, mascara, light foundation. My nose is red so the bronzer and blush makes it look worse.
I use a light tinted moisturizer and a dab of bronzer around my face with some mascara and a thin line of eyeliner... for my personally if i dont use some sort of foundation/cover up i look dead, and my eyes look sick without eyeliner!!
Yeah I've been using it but lightly. I try not to wear blush because I feel right now it makes my nose look more red...hehe

I do wear makeup when I'm sick (well, not always).
I just... do what I normally do, haha. Works for me.
Blush and highlighter is a wonderful thing.
(Especially theBalm Hot Mama)
I think that should work fine, but you should try sugar and olive oil if you can. It works perfectly!
@Jasmine... The for a flaky, runny nose tip is great. I'm going to try it. Do you think I could use my Lush sugar lip scrub to exfoliate it?
