You may not love the scent of your coworker’s hand cream, or the perfume wafting across the aisle on the train. But for some people, fragrances like those can trigger a range of very real symptoms, according to a new Australian study, from migraines to difficulties with breathing.
Perfumes contain a mix of several ingredients that include a complex blend of natural essences as well as synthetic chemicals. The average perfume or cologne contains about 14 secret chemical ingredients that are capable of triggering mild to severe allergic reactions in fragrance-sensitive individuals.
Fragrance sensitivity can be defined as an irritation or an adverse reaction to chemicals in a perfume or other scented products such as air fresheners and cosmetics. Sensitivity to strong odors can make allergic people severely ill. People with asthma or other respiratory illness can be more susceptible to fragrance allergies compared to healthy individuals.
Some common symptoms of perfume allergy include the following:
mild to severe headache
skin irritation, itching, and rashes
sneezing, coughing and runny nose, also called allergic rhinitis
breathing difficulties, dizziness, and fatigue
watery, red, and itchy eyes
inability to concentrate
swelling – or angioedema
nausea and vomiting

Squeeze little amount of foundation on your palm and dot your face and neck with it. In case you want to use foundation brush dip it into the squeezed amount. Now beginning from the center of your face, i.e. nose, work up to the forehead, both the cheeks, chin and your neck. Blend it well either with the fingers, sponge or brush.
Do not forget to apply foundation on your neck. Applying foundation just on the face makes it stand out from the neck because of the different shades. Also dab on some to the sides of the neck.
Give special attention to uneven skin tone, pimples, spots or dark circles. Build up these areas with little more foundation and blend well.
You can remove the excess foundation with either tissue or sponge. Just dab on to the area (do not rub).
Once you are done with applying foundation, set it with compact or loose translucent powder. This ensures that your foundation stays intact for a longer time.
