A little color in your cheeks is ideal for most women, but what do you do when the redness is overwhelming? For the who suffer from rosacea, a chronic skin disorder that primarily affects the face, redness is a frustrating fact of life — sometimes, it can even feel like nobody sees past it. Fortunately, for those who wish to cover up their redness, a little makeup can go a long way.
YouTube makeup artist Sinead Cady posted a tutorial to her channel featuring five easy steps to getting rid of redness.
Step 1: Apply primer.
Start with the basics: Apply a primer to your skin to ensure your makeup stays on all day. Plus, it creates a "barrier between your skin and your makeup," says Sinead, "preventing any further irritation."
2: Pick a tinted concealer.
Use a yellow- or green-tinted concealer to counteract the red tones in your skin.
3: Apply concealer with a brush.
Add the concealer onto your skin gradually using a large brush to cover a wider area; and so you get the exact amount of coverage you want without going overboard.
4: Finish with foundation.
Using a brush once again, apply foundation over the concealer for an even finish.
5: Set with a yellow-toned powder.
Press a yellow-toned setting powder into the skin to keep your makeup in place.
As Sinead says, "Bye bye, redness!"
