  • If you have any type of significant flaw, I recommend you try Derma Blend. I know that Macy's carries it.  Here is the website link:

    Derma Blend

    I use their Setting Powder on top of my foundation.  They really are great products!

  • I have awesome luck with BareMinerals . . . I have very red skin on my face, and it does a really good, natural job.

  • bare minerals doesnt have enough coverage in my opinion... Cover Fx is formulated specially for ppl with troubled skin , redness , acne scars etc , it hides ur imperfections really good i have a friend who dealt with bad acne scars and its all she uses , it is a medium/full coverage if thats what ur interested in you can find it at Sephora.

  • It's not the foundatin that'll do it but a primer meant to conceal redness that goes on under your foundation. Smashbox has a great one; it's green (you need a green one to combat the red in your skin tone). It not only reduces the redness but it also makes your foundation go on smoothly.

  • I was going to recommend the Smashbox primer as well. I have very red cheeks and this product is a dream come true for me. I can wear it under almost any foundation, even bareMinerals and my red cheeks are completely masked. You can get it at Sephora and I'm pretty sure that you can get it at Ulta as well. Smashbox also have a tri color primer that I recommend. I've seen it at Ulta and picked up a sample and I was pretty pleased with it as well.
