Whether you suffer from rosacea or acne, it can be difficult to deal with the redness that accompanies these conditions. Whilst I’m all for flaunting my bare skin (everyone knows about my permanently flushed cheeks), there are certain occasions that call for a bit of camouflage. Ahead are 5 stellar products that can cover up all types of redness.
1. NYX Cosmetics Concealer Jar In ‘Green’
If you are dealing with a smattering of inflamed zits, this little jar can be your saviour. The pale green hue counteracts red tones, whilst the creamy formula ensures that your skin doesn’t look dry or flaky. I recommend using a thin brush to dot the formula on to the concerned area before putting on your concealer.
2. L.A. Girl HD Pro.Conceal
Speaking of concealers, here’s one that works perfectly over blemishes! The squeezable tube dispenses a buildable formula with a natural-looking finish that can cover up all kinds of pimples. Plus, the wide shade range makes it easy to find a match for your skin tone.
3. Smashbox Photo Finish Reduce Redness Primer
When you are dealing with larger patches of redness, it’s best to turn to a primer rather than colour correct each area individually. This silky formula evens out your complexion, blurs out pores and ensures that your makeup lasts longer! What more can you really ask for?
4. Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra 24H Long Wear Foundation
This pigmented foundation is brilliant at providing a smooth and flawless base. The oil-free formula glides on smoothly to deliver a full coverage and matte finish that stays put for hours on end. It also comes in a whopping 45 shades, thus ensuring that everyone finds their perfect match. Whilst it may be too much to wear on a daily basis, you can definitely consider it on special occasions like weddings and birthdays.
5. Clinique Redness Solutions Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15
Don’t have the time to colour correct and apply your base? Turn to this multi-tasking bottle instead. Specially formulated for flushed skin, this soothing formula covers up redness and strengthens your skin’s moisture barrier. As a fellow rosacea sufferer, I would highly recommend that you get your hands on this formula.
