Just to frighten some of you, this can be my skin….
I do get spots and blemishes like everybody else. It takes a lot of work with foundations and primers to make my skin look as nice as it does in photos. I try to avoid filters on the blog at times.
So for this week’s tip of the week, I wanted to share with you some tips for hiding redness in the skin.
- Change your skincare. Sometimes something in the regime may need swapping with something else. There are some awesome serums and moisturisers that combat the worst of blemishes and redness in the face. I use the Body Shop’s Hemp Face Protector religiously since it is the best product for reducing the red blotches that I get on my cheeks.
- Use a colour correcting product. Yellow tones counteract the redness in the skin. Most companies sell these now and come in concealer form, or as primers. Since I get a lot of redness in quite a large area, I opt for a primer. This usually will reduce the most angry redness in the skin. The Bare Minerals Neutralising Primer also has properties that calm the skin too, which is why I like it so much.
- Layer up foundation in thin layers. Yes it may be tempting to cover up your face with a thick layer of foundation, but it will only enhance your redness because it is obvious that product is there. I like to layer my foundation in thin layers to get a fuller coverage.
- Remove makeup before you go to bed. Some redness is caused by the harmful ingredients in cosmetics, so by cleaning your face thoroughly, it ensures that your redness does not grow.
I hope these tips have helped. If you have any other ideas for tips of the week, please let me know in the comments. Or if you would like some advise on anything, also please ask in the comments.
