Thanks for bumping this thread, had been thinking the last week or so that I should be replying to this on my journey to find something that works!
I bought the IT cosmetics Bye Bye Redness as I wanted to try different foundations also. This stuff is good but is a little dark for my skin, and also hard to get. Took a while for it to come through and now I need more and it's out of stock again. Anyway, I also bought the 'CC+ Illumination Color Correcting Cream' foundation. I initially bought it in Light (which is the second lightest), thinking Fair might be too light for me. Because of the darkness of the Bye Bye Redness, I ended up buying Fair because the Light became an extra shade darker. I'm happy with both and does even out my skin. I tried a couple of their powders and found the CC+Airbrush Perfecting powder to be the best for a nice finish (also got that in Light).
Now, the main issue I was having is the fine lines under my eyes showing with makeup. I'm still having troubles there. I got the IT Cosmetic Bye Bye Undereye but it's too dry for my skin and the dryness makes it worse. Then tried the Maybelline Instant Age Rewinder as it seemed to have good reviews, but it's also too dry. I'm now playing with different eye creams. I got Dr Dennis Gross' Ferulic + Retinol Eye Cream but it burned a bit and made my under eyes even dryer *cry* I have been having allergies (even though it's winter) so I wonder if that's not helping. I've just ordered some Charoltte Tilbury Magic Cream which sounds very nourishing and plumping so fingers crossed! I will let you all know when I find that miracle! You can't see the lines when I'm makeup free, but it's clear the makeup is drying my under eyes so it seems I need some kind of extra nourishing eye cream.
I'll keep you posted. I do think of you all when I try these things, I know I'm not alone in this, so I will definitely give you an update.
