Hiding Redness On The Face With Concealer
One of our most frequently asked questions we receive at The Make-up Studio is “how do I hide redness on the face”. If you have blemishes, broken capillaries or age spots that you wish to cover on your face, The Makeup Studio staff can help.
“It’s all about color theory”-Says Julie Farley.
The first step to hide redness on the face, is start with the color wheel to determine your shade of concealer. For example with redness on your face, you want to use a yellow/green concealer. Make sure your makeup concealer isn’t too light or dark. If you use too light of a concealer it will appear lighter on the face and will accentuate the red spots on your face. Remember you want to see the effects of the makeup but not see the makeup.
Here is a step by step tutorial to achieve even toned skin:
It’s a good idea to prep the skin with moisturizer, then a face primer like the Senna Silky Primer or the Alison Raffaele Acne Response Primer. The primer will ensure a silky smooth surface to help your foundation and concealer glide on smoothly and help fill in fine lines.
Apply liquid foundation or tinted moisturizer. The Makeup Studio staff loves tinted moisturizers at The Make-up Studio because their light formula will give you adequate coverage and most of them come with a sunscreen in the formula.
Apply concealer with a concealer brush on all redness and blemishes. Use the warmth of your finger to stipple it in. Here are a few of our favorites:
- Senna Totally Transforming Concealer - A full coverage concealer
- Alison Raffaele True Concealer - Lightweight texture
Apply translucent powder to set the makeup. This final step is often overlooked, but is very important. Translucent powder will help hold your foundation and concealer in place throughout the day. We’d recommend the Cozzette Infinite Pressed Powder or the Kett Sett Powder for this step.
So show your face with pride and don’t hide!
