1) Don’t have really hot baths or showers before applying makeup – this will cause the red blood vessels under the skin to become inflamed and emphasise any redness you may have. Try to stick to warm showers because you may end up overcompensating with too much makeup to cover the redness.
8) I would steer clear of green concealers. I know alot of people would advise this in the first instance but to be honest, it can often give a very opaque and unnatural looking finish, especially if you only have redness on certain areas of your face. It would be ok if the whole of your face was red but if there are just certain areas, then it can make the rest of your face look strange. It’s always just looked weird on me and I was told by my wedding makeup artist that yellow toned concealers/primers like Benefit Lemon Aid are a much better option as they give a really nice finish and brighten your skin without looking weird!
10) The last and most important point of all is to remember not to get down about the fact that you don’t have the perfect, flawless complexion naturally. Most people don’t, but once you learn how to conceal your redness with makeup, it won’t be an issue anymore and you can feel confident that your skin looks even, natural and radiant!

All of these things have helped me and I don't think you can tell from my photos or in real life that I have discoloration in my skin so I hope they work for you!
