Is there anyone that has ever worn makeup that has too much of a red under tone? is there a way you can fix this? My face looks red. Blending it with another color wont help either. I really like this brand that i've been using

What foundation? I have a red undertone and keep ending up with foundations with yellow tones.

Why not just purchase the correct shade and save the one with too much red for the summer season (if it looks right during the summer)? I don't think it could be fixed.

I kid you not, I've tried EVERY shade there is close to my complextion, and ALL of them come out red. but maybe your right, I'll just hold it until the summer.
 
 
So Far I've returned the product 4 times to fidn the correct shade

I do mix my BE mineral makeup golden deep with golden medium which is basically a yellow powder. 

I just spoon in the yellow and stir it with a toothpick until the correct shade is achieved.  I never use up my perfectly matched mixed color completely until I mixed a new batch so I have a guide to go by.

Usually brands with little selection in their darker shades all have red/ orange undertones. Shop a brand with a wider range, Revlon is a good example.
