Re: Given up

Angela, I completely know how you feel! I think a lot of us do. Perhaps you are using the wrong shade of foundation -- it may have a red tint or hue in it which makes the red marks seem darker...? I have had red marks that have stubbornly remained on my face for over one year now -- so trust me, I completely understand the frustration. I have learned lots of make up techniques though that have helped in covering the marks up. It is true -- that a green shade underneath your foundation helps -- green over red tends to neutralize the red marks. I use a green stick made my Shiseido underneath my foundation. And I use a foundation with a green hue to it (I know it sounds funny, but you really don't see the green)....and last, I use a pencil stick concealer made by BeneFit to dot over the red marks -- it has been my lifesaver. Don't give up! Go to a few make up counters at the department stores and see what kinds of tricks they use to cover blemishes -- and find a good foundation -- it will help tremendously! Good luck. hth. bella
