I haven't found any concealer to get rid of it completely and I was wondering if you all knew any tricks? Thanks!

You'll need color correction concealer. Green concealer will cancel out the red on your skin. You'll apply this before your foundation and then seal it with powder to help your make-up last all day. Yellow concealer will work for any darkness under your eyes.

As for where to get green or yellow concealer-Physician's Formula is available in most drugstores or Walmart and it is fairly inexpensive.
