Conceal Redness: Four Easy Steps

  • stepp-2

Needless to say, I had to get creative in order to shoot this post alone (the backdrop is a bed sheet thrown over a giant ladder). I keep it classy. Anyways, with a pale complexion and pink/red undertones in my skin, I am always combating redness. It used to be so annoying to see a flush creep into my face half-way through the day despite wearing foundation.

A few months ago I began searching for the perfect combination of products to combat my red undertones. Today, I will share my daily, four step process for redness elimination and the must-have products to achieve it!

The Products– NARS Concealer; Morphe Brush; KVD Lock-It Foundation; Smashbox Photo Finish Primer; Beauty Blender; Airspun Loose Powder 
Step 1

Tip: Apply primer with brush or fingers (wash your hands first) then let set for a minute or two before proceeding to the next step.

 

Step 2

Tip: When skin is particularly red, apply NARS concealer (used here: Chantilly) to trouble areas (nose, chin, etc.) and use a beauty blender to lightly distribute product. This helps reduce major redness before applying foundation.

 

Step 3

Tip: Use brush to apply and buff onto skin (used here: LIGHT 45). This is a HEAVY foundation and does not distribute well when applied with fingers. I used the MB5 by Morphe Brushes.

 

Step 4

Tip: For a MATTE finish use AIRSPUN Loose Face Powder. It can be found at most drug stores and is a super cheap alternative to other pricey setting powders!
