Red sensitized skin can be a pain in the a**.
Being a natural Redhead and living abroad on a tropical island, my skin tends to gravitate to the pinkish. My new fave for combating redness? Dermalogica's Redness Relief! It cuts the red immediately and is also matte so you can wear under your makeup with no shine issue. [and the green tint is not too pigmented and it blends out to sheer skin so you won't look like Kermit the Frog] Another great one that is good for touch-ups throughout the day is Physicians Formula Talc-Free Pressed Powder in Soft Green, fellow makeup artists, this is a GREAT addition to our kits.
*TIP: Too much sun? Use these anti-redness correctors vs packing on foundation. Too much foundation on sunburnt skin can be irritating as well as won't match you skin anymore so give up the attempt. And remember... Sunscreen!
