Hiding redness can be a tricky process. You have to be careful with products because if you put on too much, your makeup can look like a cakey, unnatural mess. You also want to make sure that the products match your skin tone and that you blend correctly, so your makeup looks seamless and effortless.
One hero product that can really neutralize redness is a green concealer. Yes, green as in the color. And no, you won’t look like the Wicked Witch of the West. “A lot of people get intimidated by color correctors, but learning how to apply it the right way can really change your makeup game,” says makeup artist Karina Milan. “Although foundation can often help us even out our overall skin complexion, there are often tricky areas that don’t seem to get covered. That’s because different undertones and colors in the skin require a complementary color to camouflage them. The goal of a green concealer is to cancel out any pink or red tones in the skin that might seep through foundation.” And green concealer is best used when dealing with rosacea or red breakouts, according to makeup artist Tobi Henney.
