My “Rosacea Friendly” Foundation Routine

I was in a rush today to get my makeup on before my kid was dropped off.  I decided to mix a small amount (size of a pea) into my tinted moisturizer and set it with a small amount of Revlon PhotoReady translucent “finisher” powder.  It gets quite humid when it starts to warm up in NJ until about September, and we have a small bathroom and that means the humidity from the weather and hot showers gets trapped in there, which means I start sweating my makeup off in the middle of applying it.  I can only use what doesn’t make me break out so it’s a real bugger.  This powder helps.  I apply a tiny bit with a big powder brush and build it up as needed.

I normally wear just a tinted moisturizer and no foundation, but probably due to genetics, I see I have developed a bit of rosacea.  My Mom has it and I’m as pale as she is so it’s even more noticeable.  My green primer and a bit of this foundation covers it, but it’s a light finish so I don’t even need to bother with blush, I just dot some bronzer on the spots of the face where the sun hits.  I don’t do contouring because it makes me look like I have a 5 o’clock shadow.  I’ve tried the Kim Kardashian technique, even that doesn’t work.

My color: classic ivory (light 3)
