Hiya
This is my first post on here... i have really rosy cheeks and my chin is a kinda purply colour as when i was younger i had acne and its not normal colour anymore, im fair skinned and when i put foundation on it dosnt cover spots, and my un even skinn colour is the same

Is there a really good foundation that will make my whole face the same colour....

Also i have dark circles under my eyes and the skin looks like a little lizards skin, kinda bumpy, ive tried lots of things but nothing seems to work... Any tips on that one either

Aghh...I really shouldn't know this being a straight guy and everything but...

Try mineral makeup. Go with a green shade that will downplay the redness in the cheeks.

For the dark circles go with Vitamin K gel. I would try a MILD alpha hydroxyacid facial cleanser to assist with those bumps, but use common sense as the eyes are the most sensitive part of the face and the skin is very thin.

Another good thing to cover spots is to try a shade a little darker than you normally wear. Put that on the spots and then put your regular shade on top.

I agree, mineral makeup is the way to go, but avoid any with fillers. You want something that's good for your skin.

Is the discoloration you have on your face due to little broken blood vessels? It's common for them to form on your cheeks and around your nose. If this is the case, you can get them removed.

She said that it was from acne, so I doubt it's broken veins, rather just post-acne hyperpigmented spots, albeit severe ones.

I have heard minerals make up are good for the skin and they cover well. use a mineral powder concealer also. Bare minerals is a good brand.

I have uneven skin tone and i use a colour corrector stick. I have red patches on my face and i use the green shade as this neutralises the red. There are different colours to choose from depending on the colour you are trying to correct. Dont worry, this goes under foundation! it gives me a nice even tone when foundation is applied


I also get 'bumpy' eyes underneath. Sounds like a reaction to something (pet allergy, Hayfever). Theres not much you can do to hide this. I mix my concealer with everyday moisturiser so it can cover up and moisturise the dry skin at the same time.
You should possibly look at buying pirition or something to treat allergies. Consult a pharmacist first and they will advise.

I have got red patches on both of my cheeks and my chin is purply too. Is there not a remedy for this problem? I would like to get of rid of my uneven skin tone. It is so frustrating sometimes.

Have anyone tried Bio Oil? I heard they are for used for treating various skin conditions including uneven skin tone. I have never used it myself though.
