Hi,

I'm new here, based in the UK and terrible with picking make up products and make up in general.

I have rosacea which gives me extremely red cheeks and they get worse during hot weather. I've attached a photo of my cheeks and chin with no make up. You can see I have some scars and patchy skin too.

I've tried liquid foundations before but they dry my skin out terribly and never look right, even when I use a primer. I'm looking for something that let's my skin breathe and doesn't feel heavy.

I was wondering about using a tinted moisturisor? I've read that the ones with a green tint can help with this but I'm willing to try others as well.

Any advice, links or pointers would be great. Thank you!

Have you tried thinning out your liquid foundation with a moisturiser to a consistency that suits your skin. If my skin is dry I often do this:-)

Hi Bonnie

Seeing as though you own liquid foundation already, I would try applying a green tinted moisturiser before you apply the foundation. This should combat the dryness that you are experiencing and help the redness. There are colour correcting primers out there like the SmashBox Photo Finish Reduce Redness Primer and NYX colour correcting primer, although it may not provide you the moisture you need which is why a tinted moisturiser seems preferable.

Another option is to use a foundation formulated for dry skin like Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Tint.

If you have a favourite moisturiser, you could also add colour pigment to your moisturiser. Cover FX sell these drops.

I hope this helps! :)

Id suggest looking into clinique products. Clinique have a very good redness skincare range including a pressed powder to reduce redness. The pressed powder is silky and smooth with a yellow tinge. Pretty sure shishedo have green tinted products.........

Clinique is expensive... elf have a green tinted primer which is a more affordable


to and beyond
