Lindsey Wixson Has Allergic Reaction to Fashion Week Makeup 2011-03-07 12:44:05

Fashion Week Makeup Gives Model Lindsey Wixson an Allergic Reaction

Poor Lindsey Wixson. The 16-year-old Fashion Week staple has tweeted that instead of walking the rest of Paris Fashion Week, "I'm coming home tomorrow due to an allergic reaction to the make-up from the day before. :(" Here's wishing her a fast recovery, and many, less allergic Fashion Weeks in the years ahead.

I feel terrible for Lindsey, and her misfortune is a good reminder that makeup can cause serious allergic reactions, not just run-of-the-mill breakouts. Clearly, with FW's hectic schedule, there was likely little time for Lindsey to test all this stuff on herself, but for those of us with a little more free time, performing a patch test before you put new cosmetics on is always a good idea.
