Does anyone on here have it? Have you found any make up products that help hide the redness? I’ve been in the process of finding make up for the wedding and I’ve used the Smashbox green primer as well as Makeup Forever HD green primer and I’m still seeing red. However, I’ve never been diagnosed with it- I’ve had two make up people make comments about my rosacea, acting like I knew I had it!

Clinique makes an anti-red calming line that is made for people with ruddy complexions and rosacea. Worth trying! My friend’s mom has it and it is really really obvious. Maybe it’s not so bad? Just enough that a MAU would notice it?

i have it!! i use french Ella Bache products and they have red reducing lotions as well but for day to day makeup, i use mineral powder (id essensials) and found it works great in covering up the redness and it feels very natural

The Clinique rosacea and redness line worked well for me, but Dermalogica worked even better for skin care supplies. I would recommend Clinique as a good starting point. I still use their yellow face powder.

I have a slight case of it (my mom has it way worse) and when I was still living at home, she went to the dermatologist and got a cream for it (Rx only) that she let me use too – you had to apply twice daily and it made a HUGE difference. Only problem is she decided not to re-invest because she didn’t remember to put it on every day, and didn’t see a difference – I can’t afford to go to a dermatologist, and it’s not sold OTC.

I’ve never been diagnosed, but I do have some problems with redness. I had my makeup done a couple of years ago and the MUA mentioned that it was slightly an issue. Until then, I never really thought about it too much. However, I’ve found some products that seem to work really well for me and have decreased the redness almost completely. I use the Clinique redness line, which I’ve found really helps. I know people who like the Aveeno redness line (it’s less expensive than Clinique), but I didn’t like how thick it felt on. I’ve also used a redness relief gel made by Boots that I got at Target with good results.
Also, for me, I’ve gotten the best results from avoiding things that seem to trigger the redness. I spent a lot of time really trying to track what things seemed to set it off worse and for me they are: alcohol, hot bath/shower, and a couple of facial products I used to use!
