A few weeks ago I reviewed The Ordinary Serum Foundation (you can watch that review HERE) and as soon as that review went live, lots of people asked me to also review The Ordinary Coverage Foundation as well*. Ask and you shall receive!
Well I bet that’s a contender for the weirdest blog title you’ve read today! There are many ways I keep control of my rosacea: changing my diet, adapting my lifestyle, carefully selecting my skincare. But day to day I have had to learn how to cope with the way that rosacea affects me mentally. So I decided to share with you how blue lipstick helps me cope with rosacea… stick with me, it will all become clear!
Colour correcting has been around for ages but has only really hit the mainstream in the past year. I’ve had a lot of questions from people who’ve heard that green colour corrector products are wonderful for those of us with facial redness… but understandably, many are put off by the thought of ending up with a green face! So I’ve recorded a very quick tutorial showing how to cover redness with green concealer.
As April is Global Rosacea Awareness Month I’ve been sharing a lot of information about living with, and learning to control, rosacea. It’s a frustrating condition as it can be completely calm and soothed until BAM! Something changes. A tiny shift in routine, diet, or stress levels can result in a flare up of epic proportions. Which is why I wanted to talk about how to survive warm weather with rosacea.

Last Tuesday I appeared on Channel 4 on Katie Piper’s Face To Face, a programme dedicated to raising awareness of different facial conditions and talking about the empowering and supportive side of make up and beauty. I was so thrilled to take part and wanted to chat a little bit more about it.
If you follow my blog you will know that I am a huge fan of full coverage make up. My rosacea redness makes me very self-conscious and I feel more like myself when I know I can apply a full face of make up. But I know that not everyone can (or wants to) wear a lot of make up. So I have pulled together the products that would work as a rosacea cover ups for men and those who prefer a lighter look.
Whenever I mention to people that I like my foundation to be high coverage, there is one name that always pops up: Vichy Dermablend* foundation. I have been keen to try this product for a while – I am a big fan of Vichy skincare as it’s very gentle on my sensitive skin, so I had high hopes for their make up range. I was given this at an event a few months ago and I’m kicking myself that I didn’t try it out before now!
I have filmed a first impressions video so that you can see how well the foundation covers redness and so you can hear my initial thoughts on the texture, formula and application. There are also some bloopers at the end of the video if you fancy something to cheer you up!
