All About Rosacea!!!


Rosacea is an area of redness on the skin. It most commonly occurs in the cheek area and across the nose, as well as the chin and sometimes the forehead. A lot of women develop slight cases of rosacea after they start having “their own private summers,” due to the hormonal changes of menopause. Some women have rosacea their whole lives.

Rosacea usually appears as a general area of redness, marked with darker red spots. I prefer to use as little concealer as possible when disguising imperfections, so I conceal rosacea using a few extra steps:

  1. To counteract the redness of rosacea, use a yellow-based concealer. Applying a thin layer of concealer to all the red areas. Although this thin layer will cover the general area of redness, probably a few darker areas of redness will still show through, No problem – we will tackle these next.
  2. Using the same concealer, apply another layer to the darker areas – but only to the spots that are still visible. By covering in two steps, you will avoid having a thick layer of concealer over a large area of your face, and your skin will look more natural.
  3. Stipple (a patting motion) around the outer edges of the concealed area, to blend in the texture.
  4. Apply your foundation now, but be sure to stipple, not wipe, your foundation over the concealed areas. Wiping on your foundation can remove the product from the area you just concealed.
  5. Finish with a light dusting of powder to set your foundation and concealer.


Most women do not want to wear blush after they have concealed their rosacea. After all, they just covered the excess color in their cheeks – the last thing they want to do is add color back to this area. If you do want some color back in your cheeks, choose something very natural. A great option is to use a little bronzer for color, rather than blush.
