My cheeks are naturally rosey but if im hot or embarraced or have a hot flush my whole face just goes bright red!! i haven't yet found a decent concealer or foundation to calm the red down... the red always breaks through! Does anyone else have a similar problem or a good foundation that will cover up red cheeks but wont dry out your skin?

have you tried the green stuff that you can get? i had some from the body shop and it worked a bit(!) ...god i'm really selling it aren't I????

Oh yes - it was why I had to give up drinking at lunchtime. (Although I did find vodka has less of an effect than wine)
Having tried an awful lot fo green bases I ahve to say they always just lokked like green on top of red cheeks on me. One thing that has helped is chamommile oil (mine is from Darphin) - one drop on each cheek morning and night.

I have a pot of 'green stuff' whether it is the right stuff i don't know... ive never used it. I think il try the Camomile stuff though. Its worth a try. I hate red cheeks!

theres a really great product out for this you can get it from space nk. its called B Kamins booster blue treatment. its specifically for this. i bought it for mr secret as he looks permanently flushed and it really works. not cheap though.

Did you get the rosacea cleanser or the rosacea mask?

the moisturiser, is it called a mask? Its in a pump bottle and you put it on after moisturising and leave it on.

Does anyone know of a really god concealer that will cover ugly spot scars on face??

Dropinthe, Im not sure if it covers scars but i find it really good (apart from totallyn covering up my red cheeks)... that Max Factor stick foundation. I think its around £8 and it lasts ages. Ive been using that one for about the last 3 years as i haven't found one better (obviously not the same stick!)

I think that no.7 makeup is fab! I naturally have rosy cheeks but with no.7 foundation I just have that healthy glow look as opposed to sunburnt

hi when you use the green corective base, you must use it thinly and blend it in well. there is also a green corective powder which works well. you have to use it under foundation or bronzer. there are some powders that have green flecks in them which are good.
