Makeup often mimics art, even at a basic level. When choosing the right color correcting product for your concerns, look no further than the color wheel. Complementary colors, or opposites on the color wheel, cancel each other out. That’s why products for redness and rosacea often have a green tint. Green corrects redness, giving the complexion a more balanced and even appearance. Here are a few of our favorite green-tinted products for redness and rosacea:
Combat overall redness with a green-tinted primer like Dermalogica UltraCalming Redness Relief Primer SPF 20. This formula has natural green botanical extracts and velvety silicones to help balance skin tone and texture. Calming ingredients also help reduce skin sensitivity, leaving the complexion with a flawless, neutral finish.
Conceal extreme redness with DermaBlend Smooth Indulgence Redness Concealer. With its green hue, this concealer neutralizes skin imperfections including redness, rosacea, uneven skin tone, blemishes, scars and port wine stains. This concealer’s matte, natural finish is perfect for wearing under makeup and lasts all day.
Neutralize smaller spots of redness with glo minerals Corrective Camouflage Kit. This makeup palette neutralizes and conceals discoloration with sheer, blendable coverage. Use the mint shade to address redness, the yellow to correct pink areas, lavender to combat yellow and orange tones, and neutral to balance everything out. This product is ideal for those who want to cover several types of discoloration.
Combine color correcting and coverage with stila CC Color Correcting Stick SPF 20. This CC cream stick contains a green core that corrects redness while providing skin with antioxidant benefits.
