Help my face!

I need some help! So in my new job I can't wear makeup. Mascara I could probably get away with but I wear a mask (work in a lab) so can't wear my usual foundation as it would rub away and leave a nice mask shape across my face! Now my question is, can anybody recommend something that will even my skin tone or perhaps a foundation that stays put? I have mild rosacea so mostly just red cheeks. Also have a few Campbell de Morgan spots hanging around which currently look more like blood blisters. Otherwise my skin isn't too bad. Would love any advice!

Would BB / CC cream work?

The only ones I've tried in the past have been very foundation like and transfer quite easily. I'm happy to give one a go though! (At this point I'll try anything! I'm only 25 and I've never been happy with my skin sad) Any recommendations?

Have you tried mineral foundation?

Maybe a light fake tan would work to even out your skin tone?

I have used the Bobbi Brown cc cream and found that to do exactly what you're looking for.

Moogoo powder? Or their tinted moisturiser is very light.

Or just smashbox primer? It matifies and leaves a nice finish without colour.

I'll look into the Bobbi Brown one! Might try and get into John Lewis next week and get colour matched for it. Also, as far as fake tans go, any recommendations for one that's not too orange for pale skin?

YSL Fusion ink is very sheer and gives a lovely natural finish . Long lasting too. Ask for a sample (it comes in dinky little pots with a wand in the lid), and see how you get on .

How about just taking your usual cleanser and taking any makeup off before you put your mask on. You could also take a quick minimal makeup kit to do your makeup before you leave.

I would start using a gradual fake tanner on your face to even out your complexion.

I recommend a very light one such as Boots No 7 naturally sunkissed
