How to hide redness
In this period of colder, it is not uncommon to see on our face areas of redness, and diffuse light handed and showy. Do not panic, there are several solutions to help make finding our beautiful healthy complexion and uniform. Here are 10 tips.
1) Apply a base corrector
Before starting up with the application of a foundation, a spell or powder (over your daytime moisturizer), it is ideal to neutralize the complexion with a so-called base corrective. The natural pigmentation of the skin is then corrected, but transparent for a natural effect. Several companies offer their version in a variety of colors that neutralize a particular problem. For redness, you should always choose the greenish tint, green cut always red. Suggestion: Make-Up Forever HD Primer Base Microperfection foundation shade 01 (around 27 € / $ 35 CDN).
2) Use a pigmented foundation, but natural look
This is not because we have redness that we must have a foundation ultra-thick which gives the effect of a mask. Technology foundations and many changes can now find formulas very light, natural look but with a good degree of coverage. I have a preference for mineral foundation which, through its micro-minerals reflect light to hide imperfections and irregularities. Moreover, their formulation, all lightweight, ideal forsensitive skin prone to redness often. Suggestions: Cover FX Mineral FX (around 35 € / $ 37 CA), bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation Bare Escentuals (around 23 € / $ 31 CA).
There are also versions that have liquid covering properties, but natural look. I prefer formulas lighting effect, which showcases the complexion and gives a result health healthy glow. As mentioned for the mineral, reflecting light, foundation type luster conceals redness better. Suggestion: Make-Up Forever HD Foundation Couvrance invisible (around 32 € / $ 40 CDN).
I have a technique for applying the foundation that allows a better coverage redness maintaining a natural look. We start by applying foundation all over the face with a brush is designed specifically for this purpose or finger smoothing fine. Thereafter depositing a small amount of product on the back of the hand. Then, with a finger, taking a small amount of foundation at a time and we just tap to cover more areas (such as the nose, the nose, the area around the nose, cheeks, chin, etc. .). Should never smooth or extend the product. It simply tap, always using a very small amount of foundation on the tip of the finger, and continue tapping very gently until the product is well blended. We can add layers, always touches and localized manner only. Pat can not remove the bottom layer already applied. Foundations like bright promote this type of application.You can also search for formulas “modular” which facilitate this technique does not plating.
This technique of localized application keeps a light coverage all over the face, and more opaque, where it is needed, which gives a much more natural.
3) Choose the right color of foundation that neutralize redness well
When you’re shopping for your foundation, be very careful in the choice of color. I often met people who had a lot of redness, opt for a foundation to under-tone pink, believing that he was harmonized their complexion.This common mistake is normal, because eventually, you get to harmonize the foundation for redness and not dyed. Wearing a pink foundation, it accentuates the redness. To avoid this problem, it is important to find an area of the face that has no redness and try the foundation there. If you do not find one, you can give it a try in the neck. If the neck is also too rash, you can even go to the neckline.
4) Cut the redness without sacrificing good looks
One last thing to know about applying makeup on skin prone to redness is often, they will find that once the foundation applied (especially when it is not pink), they ghostly air, sick, pale complexion or not. This impression is also normal, since these were the same redness that gave the impression of having “color”, since the distinction between a beautiful rosy complexion and redness is thin. To correct the situation, I recommend using a bronzer a tone for your complexion, not too orange or too dark, and come accentuate facial features (under the cheekbones, nose, temples, the top of the forehead and chin). You will have a beautiful healthy glow healthy complexion without redness.
5) Use a specific correction
There is nothing worse for someone who has redness multiply indefinitely layers without correcting the redness is covered. You end up with a large amount of product, and no results. Hence the importance of choosing the corrective anti-redness.
There are two types of markers: the correction to be applied before foundation, and those applying after.
If you choose the first option, you can, as bases corrective choose a green version that cuts out the red. By cons, nobody wants to end up with green spots on the face. That is why we will apply the foundation on top, but beware: it is essential to use either a foundation or powder to the technique described above, which involves gently pat the foundation liquid not to remove the spell below. Suggestion: Brush Avène Couvrance green corrector (around 12 € / $ 22 CA).
For the second option, is to apply the correction above the foundation, I recommend illuminatrices versions, which, like the foundation, conceal redness better reflecting light. Suggestion: Button shine Yves St-Laurent (around 30 € / $ 40 CDN). They are applied with the same technique as for liquid foundation or tapping.
6) Apply corrector easily
Here’s another little trick to not overextend the product beyond the area to be covered. This board is also ideal to hide a pimple or a birthmark. Depositing a few drops of the correction area to cover, then wait approximately 30-60 seconds for it to dry about one quarter to one half, but not completely. Slightly drying, texture correction becomes thicker and less extend over a large surface, which will facilitate your work and save the product.
7) A neutralizing powder
If you want to powder over your foundation or your spell, I recommend a powder under-tone yellow. This color helps to hide redness. By opting for a version Dew, you will create the same problem as the foundation discussed above. Suggestions: Loose Powder Benefit Bluff Dust (around $ 29 AC / € 26), Clinique Mineral Powder Anti-Redness Redness Solution (around CAD $ 40/33 €).
8) Choose the right blush
Normally, we advise against the use of a blush to those who have redness around the cheeks, especially those that make rosacea or rosacea. I’m a little less say radical. There are always ways to wear, just to give a beautiful complexion and look healthy, but it is simply to choose the color.
Avoided at all costs shades of pink, orange or with a sub-tone red. On the other hand, you have a GO for golden tones, beige and neutral (earth tones). You can also choose a pearl or a little more pearl to illuminate the complexion. Suggestion: Clinique Aglow (around 29 € / $ 24 CA).
To ensure optimal results, we also apply the blush to the right place. It thus avoids getting too nose. We start from the temple and stops about vis-à-vis the iris of the eye, emphasizing the most flattering of the cheekbone.
9) The rest of the makeup
Some colors of eye shadow or lipstick can also accentuate rosacea or rosacea. To avoid: bright red, copper, orange, terracotta, coral, khaki, green, brown, red and pink. In favor: neutral earth tones, cold tones (blue, turquoise, gray, white, etc..) And golden.
10) Take care of your skin
Many people who have sensitive skin redness. Sensitive skin should be treated very caring, gentle. There are many tips and treatments perfectly adapted to sensitive skin. Trademarks spend even whole lines for sensitive skin as Avene, La Roche-Posay, Vichy, Ducray A-Derma, Clarins, Clinique, etc..
