Anyone who knows me will laugh at my posting anything about beauty. I tend to keep it simple and some days I don’t wear any makeup at all, so it will probably shock some people to see me write about beauty and tips. Who knows, maybe someone will have some tips for me! Anyway, this post is to address a new makeup tip that I just learned about. Why am I just finding out about green makeup?
Green makeup is used to hide redness on your face and to help cover up blemishes. Who knew? I had to try it, because I have a mild case of Rosacea. My dermatologist says it’s very mild and hardly noticeable, but when I look at my face, it screams out at me. My skin is very light – pale, even – and I hate seeing any redness. Everyone tells me that they don’t even notice, but I do.
I bought three different types of green makeup to try. The first thing I bought is Becca Cosmetics Anti Fatigue Under Eye Primer. I have darkness under my eyes and read that this primer would help hide the dark circles. Next, I bought Dermablend Quick Fix Color Correcting Powder Pigments in green, and Maybelline Master Camo Color Correcting Pen in green for redness.
When I used the under eye primer, it hardly showed at all. It mainly left a tint of green under my eyes, which I then used a concealer to cover. It actually did help diminish the darkness under my eyes, but didn’t cover it 100%. I then tried the correcting powder. You just pour some powder on the back of your hand and rub it until it turns creamy. It seemed to do a pretty good job covering the redness, but I didn’t like having the green spot on my hand that didn’t wash off easily, so I haven’t used it again. I have used the correcting pen several times and it does the job. I rub some of the green makeup on the redness, then cover it with foundation. It works at eliminating the look of the redness, but no matter how much foundation I use, I can still see some green tint coming through, which I don’t like. I’m thinking about trying some yellow makeup concealer to see how well it blends to cover redness.
I also have very dry skin, and it doesn’t take long after I use moisturizer for my skin to be dry again. I have tried several different moisturizers, but none of them last as long as I’d like them to. I recently bought some skin care products from Kannaway that have CBD oil in them. I heard that the CBD oil is really good for skin. I just got it and have only used it once, which isn’t enough time to review. I’ll keep you posted when I decide whether or not I like it.
