@jlc3:  Either Mac Studio FX or Bobbi Brown’s stick foundation. Bobbi Brown’s is more of a cream base and heavier, while Mac’s is buildable and dries to a more matte finish.

Giorgio Armani makes little color correctors in a tube and I swear they are a holy grail makeup item. I have the pink one for darkcircles and the first time I tried it, I was like, this is never gonna work, but one swipe and it was like a crazy makeup miracle, my dark circles completely disappeared. They make a green one for redness and I didn’t buy it but the MUA at the counter demonstrated it and it totally worked.

@jlc3:  I have fair skin and loovee BB cream. I don’t really have redness ( just acne) and it provides amazing coverage. I don’t even use concealer sometimes ( and my skin almost always has a acne grrrrr ) its that good. I find it way lighter and easier to blend than foundation

I started with Garnier then wound up ordering the BB cream from Asia ( Holika Holika Petit BB cream). Its much better IMO.  You can buy it on amazon for a good price

Green concealers will be your best friend with a regular concealer on top.

Spend the money. It’s worth it to spend good money on high quality concealers and base foundation. I buy Clinique during bonus time so I get free mascara, eyeshadow, blush, and lipstick.

The BB cream from Smashbox has good coverage, is easy to apply, and has good staying power. As a bonus, it actually helps heal my skin.

But to go with this, it may help to address the root cause of the redness. Is your skin irritated? What cleanser and moisturizer are you using? How often? It could be that switching to more gentle products (like CeraVe) may eliminate the redness.

Could be due to diet or dermalogical issues. Or inflammation. If it is acne, I use visine eye drops to get the red out.

Try Clinique, it’s great for all skin types and they have a redness reducing line.

I love Clinique… it’s about the only thing my skin will tolerate!

I have rosacia and am always struggling with redness.  Ive used different things over the years.  Was into a green primer and mineral powder from pure minerals for awhile.  Lately I’ve been using Clinique redness reducing foundation which is awesome.  I have cream from my doctor as well that helps.  I tried the la Roche posay cream for rosacia and my skin starting pealing.  Although my mother has used that in the past.
