Get the Red Out
Use a protective sunscreen under makeup as a preventive, then stick with cosmetics that have just a hint of green in its hue. Green can neutralize red tones in the skin. Choose an oil-free foundation and concealer, and apply concealer in concentrated areas with an antibacterial brush. The National Rosacea Society recommends mineral makeup for sufferers; there are formulas specifically made to tone down redness, and it doesn't tend to contain irritating substances. Extra-gentle eye makeup can help reduce eye irritation, and with cheek redness, blush usually isn't needed. Less tends to be more when you have skin irritations, so go easy on the makeup.
