Beauty Shrink: What Does Your Look Say About You?

THE SHRINK:
Nikki has excellent posture, indicating that she is self-confident, but judging from her puffy eyelids, I'm guessing she's also sleep deprived. Perhaps she's working long hours? The red blotches on her nose and cheeks suggest a skin condition called rosacea, which can be exacerbated by alcohol. But to be fair, blotchiness can also be the result of vigorous exercise and stress.

NIKKI RESPONDS:
The coffee shop where I work is next to a hospital and extremely busy, so I'm on my feet for hours and am exhausted by day's end. I would say I'm very self-assured; I do what I want when I want. As for the skin, I actually do have rosacea — it runs in my family — but I keep it under control by wearing sunblock religiously and staying out of strong sun. Wheat seems to cause facial flare-ups (I suspect I'm allergic), as does some makeup, so I usually go out nearly barefaced.

MC RECOMMENDS: To copy Nikki's natural look, try a lightly tinted or clear sunblock like Clinique City Block SPF 40 (top) or Aveeno Continuous Protection Sunblock SPF 30 (center), and a rosy cream lipstick like Neutrogena Moisture Shine LipSheer in Plum Kiss.
