"I can't let beauty challenges from my allergies like watery eyes, a puffy face or red nose hold me back from looking my best on a red carpet or the Broadway stage," said Messing. "Thankfully, beauty gurus -- like Jamie -- understand the allergy-related beauty challenges that women face and can teach us the easiest ways to stay gorgeous during allergy season."

Greenberg -- who is also an allergy sufferer -- has worked with many celebrity clients who have to deal regularly with the beauty blunders caused by allergies. To help all women tackle ALLERGY FACE™, while staying current with the hottest trends, Greenberg has curated six "looks" for the makers of ZYRTEC® that will help females look their best this season.

"The looks that I have created for the makers of ZYRTEC® will help allergy sufferers find the right makeup solutions for every occasion from casual to high-glam."

To unveil her ALLERGY FACE™ looks, including a special look inspired by and featuring Messing, Greenberg will bring her beauty expertise to the 40th annual Macy's Flower Show® in New York City to help allergy sufferers look beautiful. Flower Show attendees will have the chance to sit down at the ALLERGY FACE™ Beauty Counter, which is sponsored by the makers of ZYRTEC®, for a one-on-one personal beauty consultation. The beauty technicians, who have been trained by Greenberg on her trend-inspired looks, will also share top beauty tips for achieving the ALLERGY FACE™ looks at home. 

The ALLERGY FACE™ Beauty Counter will be open March 24 through March 26 from 3:00 pm EDT to 7:00 pm EDT in the world's largest beauty department of the newly renovated Main Floor of Macy's Herald Square. Flower Show visitors can email to schedule an appointment.
