Foundation to cover cheek redness without turning me orange?

<img src="

I have very pale skin with pink undertones and I also I have keratosis pilaris which makes my cheeks very very red. I have tried multiple products to cover my redness and I haven’t found anything that works for me.

I’ve tried 3 or 4 brands of green primers but I end up having to use an absurd amount of product and in the end it doesn’t look good and is way too cakey. I’ve also used Bye Bye Redness by It Cosmetics, however that doesn’t come in a shade light enough for me. Every light shade but full coverage foundation I have tried has worked on my forehead and chin but turns my cheeks a nasty orange color when trying to mask the redness. It gives me an awful line around my jaw where my cheeks are orange and my neck is normal and pale.

I am super self conscious about this and I need help!! I’ll take any and every suggestion you guys can give me, whether it’s primer or a full coverage foundation or anything.

Oh and yes, I have talked to my dermatologist about creams for rosacea but nothing I have tried (including laser treatments) has worked. But I’m open to suggestions for those too if anyone has any!
