Best Foundation for Redness

Women use foundation for different reasons. One reason I love to use it is because of the redness on my skin. I’m a big believer in finding the best foundation for redness.

Best Foundation for Redness

Best Foundation for Redness

I’ve been on the hunt for years to find the best foundation for redness because I needed it for myself. The hard part is that I wanted to find formulas that wouldn’t be too heavy or too thick on my skin. I just didn’t want it to cause terrible acne because of the thickness of foundation.

We wear foundation to make our skin look flawless, right? Maybe that’s not the only reason why, but we do wear foundation as the base of our makeup. That’s the point of foundation. For me – I really wanted to find one that would flawlessly cover the redness over my eyes. It’s not crazy red, but it’s there.

Makeup for Moms over 40

A lightweight, creamy foundation that actually cares for your skin, this formula goes on seamlessly and blends effortlessly to cover imperfections and visually even out skin tone.

Buildable and natural-looking, it leaves you in control of the coverage: For light coverage, apply with the Retractable Foundation Brush; for medium coverage, apply with the Flat Complexion Brush.

It comes in 10 flexible shades, each of which is formulated to suit a range of skin tones. (So you don’t necessarily have to change shades as the seasons change.)

It also includes sodium hyaluronate, a natural moisture magnet, to promote smoother-looking skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

These are options I’ve categorized as the best foundation for redness. If you have Rosacea these might be good options for you, too. I don’t have Rosacea, so I don’t want to say these are the best for that condition. I do have redness on my cheeks (also dark spots) and these have worked great on my skin.

If you’re looking for an easy way to get makeup off, try the Makeup Eraser. I’ve had tremendous luck with this and have probably sold about 1000 throughout the years! I just think it’s KEY!
