When you have a face that is already naturally reddened by a ruddy complexion, rosacea, acne, or other sources of redness, you might feel that adding blush will only make things worse. It is possible to wear blush over a red facial complexion, as outlined in this article.
- Neutralize the redness to begin with. Apply a yellow-based tinted moisturizer or foundation over your whole face.
- Use a blush that has a pink or slightly brown color to it. This is much better than applying a blush with any hint of red to it.
- Place the blush on as usual. Just don't overdo it; look for a hint of a healthy glow rather than lashings of blush.
- Read How to apply blush for more details.
- If your complexion is red owing to a medical condition, talk to your doctor before applying makeup. Makeup might exacerbate any problems your skin or face is experiencing.
