Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes redness, visible blood vessels, and very occasionally acne-like bumps, to appear on your face, making some women feel self-conscious.
Currently there isn’t a cure for rosacea, but the good news is that it can be treated, and with the right makeup you can successfully cover up any redness to feel more confident with your skin.
- The first step is to gently apply a hydrating primer to create a smooth base for the rest of your makeup and ensure that it stays put all day
- A green-tinted concealer may seem intimidating, but this is your best friend if you suffer from rosacea – it visually corrects redness and helps to even out the skin tone. Gently dab a light layer onto the area of redness and try not to use too much – a little goes a long way!
- Apply a buildable, hydrating foundation using a clean brush. Start at the centre of your face and blend outwards using broad strokes with a light touch to avoid irritating your skin further. Blend well to avoid any obvious lines
- If your skin already has a lot of colour, it may be best to avoid blush. Instead, try adding some natural looking warmth to your face by using a touch of bronzer, giving you a gorgeous sun-kissed glow
Top tip! Avoid red lipstick as this will bring out the redness in your skin. Instead opt for a moisturising neutral shade.
