How to hide redness on the face

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 , 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 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. Remember you want to see the effect of the makeup but not see the makeup.

Here is a step by step tutorial to achieve even toned skin:

Step One:

It’s a good idea to prep the skin with moisturizer, then a face primer like the Senna Silky Primer. The primer will ensure a silky smooth surface to help your foundation and concealer glide on and help fill in fine lines. (Of course, there are many other options for a face primer! To see all the ones we carry, please visit our website.)

Step Two:

Apply liquid foundation or tinted moisturizer. The Make-up Studio staff loves tinted moisturizers because the light formula will give you adequate coverage and most of them come with a sunscreen in the formula.

Step Three:

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:

Step Four:

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 Youngblood Hi-Definition Hydrating Mineral Perfecting Powder or the RMS Beauty “Un” Powder.
