In the last 13 years my rosacea has changed so much: I’ve gone from Type 2 (pustules and bumps) to Type 1 (flushing with persistent redness); my skin is now more oily, rather than dry and scaly; I’ve changed my diet and lifestyle, my skincare routine has been honed and perfected, and I’ve learned how to manage my stress a little better. I finally feel like I am more in control of my rosacea, but years of damage have left me with a lot of broken capillaries (spider veins or telangiectasia if we’re being scientific) which give my skin a pink tone even when I’m not having a flare up. Keep reading for my tips on how to cover thread veins below.

I talk about rosacea a lot on the blog and I cover skincare, diet, lifestyle, stress and everything else that can affect my skin. I try to give as much advice as I can but for a lot of people, these long term solutions are helpful but they also want short-term help. I get at least one question about covering rosacea with make up every day, as so many people just want to be able to go about their day with a little bit more confidence. So I’ve put together my tips for a flawless base. I’d recommend starting with the other posts in the series – chatting about primers and foundation – but today we’re talking about colour correcting.
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.
