Get the Red Out

Covering up a screaming red blemish is hard enough. But to make matters worse, the redness often remains long after your zit clears up. The best way to get rid of red skin? Cancelling it out with green cover-up. (If you remember your color wheel, green and red are complementary colors.) To use, just apply the green concealer over the problem spots, blend it ever so slightly, and layer your everyday foundation over it. You'll be amazed at how it virtually erases redness.

Here are two green concealers I really like.

Smashbox Photo Finish Color Correcting Foundation Primer in Green, $38, available here.

Maybelline New York Cover Stick Corrector Concealer in Green, $5.49, available here.

For two more I haven't tried yet,

Bourjois Paris Lovely Base Redness Correcting Base, $20, available here.

Neutrogena SkinClearing Concealer in Green, $7.39, available here.

The Maybelline concealer stick is pretty good (at least in regular colors- haven't tried green), but you have to blend it with your finger. It just doesn't look right if you use a sponge.

thanks for the info jenn. i don't have pimply skin, but the occasional pimple i do get seems to stay on my face forever because of the little red dot left behind, so these products look awesome! and i'm a neutrogena girl, so i'll have to try that one out. Thanks fab!

I use the Neutrogena in regular color and I love it. I've been coveting the Smashbox in clear forever. I just need to use up my current primer. I'm not sure if the color correcters are available in trial sizes or not, but I know the clear is. For $15.50. Something to look into.
