It's not much help I don't think but when I have a red spot I use green concealer before my foundation to reduce the redness x

Where do you get this from? I can understand the theory to that because in hair colouring green nutralizes red and vise versa x

Hello

I'm not 100% sure but I feel that MAC, gosh, benefit cosmetics etc will make a green pigmented concealer. As u say, the red pigment is neutlized by the green so when covered with a regular concealer/foundation over this it is hidden well.
Remember to dab the concealer on not rub. This provides a better & more natural coverage

Hope this helps

i use coloured concealer to hide different imperfections..green is fab for anything red on the skin including spots. i buy mine for the bargain of £1.99 in boots, its the natural collection one & they had a 3 for £5 offer last time i went in. there are other colours sold elsewhere which are fab, i was buying a trio of green,pink & normal skin tone colour in Germany for less than 2 Euro..great quality products out there for so little cost. oh the pink was to hide dark circles around eyes, good coverage & looked great. x
