We all have imperfections that seem, to us, like the worst things ever but others barely notice them. Every one of us has at least one insecurity, whether that's our weight, spots or the shape of our nose. Basically, we tend to make mountains out of molehills out of these imperfections.
I, too, have a very minor insecurity although it seems like a huge thing. I am very paranoid about my skin. I get very red. I'm red anyway but I used blush quite easily. Thankfully I have managed to get the blushing under control.
It may be a small case of rosacea or something else entirely. All I know for sure is that it has been here for the last few years and it isn't giving up without a fight. I began to wonder if wearing makeup was affecting it. Looking at old pictures now, though, I realise that it's been around for quite a while.
Enough background talk. Last year I discovered a primer from No7 that counteracts my redness wonderfully. It is the No7 Colour Calming Primer. It neutralises and conceals the redness and does the primary job of a primer.
This is green so don't panic when you first see it. The green is meant to counteract the red, giving you a perfect base for your makeup
If I remember correctly this cost around €30. But there's so much in the tube that it will last you a lifetime. I recommend this to anyone and everyone who is uncomfortable with red skin.
If you try this out, let me know how it went! Enjoy your day! Wherever you are, it's probably better than the lashing rain we have here in Dublin...
