Green or Yellow concealer to cover rosacea?

Postby JulieBC* on Wed Aug 02, 2017 8:02 pm

I've been using green concealers to cover rosacea for a few years now. For a long time, I'd always read/been advised that green is the way to go for covering redness. Many of the green concealer/colour correcting products advertise themselves as being designed to counteract redness.

However, a number of blogs and magazine articles I've been reading recently have recommended using yellow concealer for covering redness, instead.

Before I head out to start spending money on multiple concealer colours, I'd love to hear other opinions from rosacea sufferers.

I do find that I have to use very light green concealer so it doesn't show through my foundation as my skin is very pale, so my foundation is light and looks muddy if I use a dark green under it.

Has anyone tried yellow or both yellow and green colour correctors? If so, what's your opinion about the redness coverage?

Thanks! :oops:

Hi julieBC,
Sorry but, I never used color concealer to cover rosacea.
I think you should take advice from skin specialist before using it.
Thanks..
