Perfect Cover Up for Redness

If you’ve been following my posts for  a while, you’ve probably noticed in my photographs that I tend to have redness to my complexion.  I have a skin condition called rosacea which (among other things) leaves me with red, blotchy skin.  Since I also have allergies, I tend to have noticeable bags under my eyes.  What these two things mean is that I use cover up and foundation every single day to reduce how noticeable it is.

I’ve tried a lot of cover ups, mineral power, liquid foundation, primer, etc.  Some products work better than others but I haven’t really found anything that takes it to a point that I’m happy with it. When I heard about Aquatint Erasing Creme from Judith August Cosmetic Solutions, I looked forward to seeing if this would do the trick for me.

Aquatint Erasing Creme is a cover up that covers and brightens when you need extra help.  It’s recommended for those with fair skin, red allergy eyes or blotches and under eye shadows. That describes me perfectly.  Aquatint Erasing Creme is meant to be used underneath your cover up and foundation so it is not a replacement product. You simply use a sponge to apply it to the areas you need help with.  A little bit goes a long way. It is very concentrated.

With Aquatint

I was a bit taken back when I opened the jar and saw it was green.  I had visions of Frankenstein for Halloween time.  Once you apply it and rub it in, the green color is totally gone. It just sort of dulls the redness somehow. Then you apply your normal cover up and foundation over the top and the results are truly amazing. You can see a picture of me without using the Aquatint and a picture of me using the Aquatint.  The cover up and foundation I used in both pictures are the same.  The only difference is the Aquatint. I cannot tell you how impressed I am. I haven’t found a cover up yet that would disguise all the redness. I will definitely be using this every day!

    Yep, red cancels out green. I’ve used the small sticks for spot treatments and it works wonders. I have never applied it to my entire face though. It seems to work great!

    I would have been hesitant to try it too if it were green and I had not read the review. Thanks for a detailed post!
