Dior's new primer is color correcting and radiance boosting. It's expensive but I've never been let down by Dior's products.

i use hourglass and have used it on many others and have found that it doesn't bother sensitive skin. however, if you are trying to cancel redness, i would go for one of the smashbox color correcting ones or the mufe green one which is supposed to cancel red.

HeYyY Jessicacalyn,

 

I second the Laura Mercier Foundation Primer I use the Hydrating one because I have DRY skin! It works so0o well and it gives a little bit of a dewy glow. Also it's very gentle on your skin! 

 

Hope this helps! >(8D)

I also use bare minerals and what I have been using as a base is bb cream (I use dr jart black label detox) and I have found that not only do I use less of the bare minerals but also I can still get a natural yet even toned look.

Hi Jessicacalyn, check out Clinique Redness Solutions Daily Protective Base SPF 15.  It has a slight green tint to it to help reduce the appearance of redness & even out skin tone.

Also, you might want to apply a treatment serum before your primer to help calm & sooth your red skin.  Try:

 First Aid Beauty Anti-Redness Serum
