Arnica cream is great for bruising and then how about Estée Lauder double wear foundation. It gives a full coverage but tbh I'm not sure how you will completely hide bruising unless you use professional stage makeup.
I would use a primer first - smashbox do quite good ones but there are cheaper options available. no7 do a few. I think green might be better for the early stages when it's got a reddy/pinky/purply tinge, and then purplish one once the bruise turns green!
After that, I'd apply a heavy duty concealer before my foundation - I like benefit boiing but something fairly solid like that or the dermablend, touche eclat ain't gonna cut it! Once that's on and settled, I'd apply a fairly heavy foundation using the Real Techniques stippling brush.
Reason I'd do it this way; I can never find a concealer that matches foundation perfectly and the texture is never as good. If you have lots of bruises you'd end up with make up patches. But if you try to put foundation over the top using a normal brush or sponge you'll end up displacing the concealer. The stippling brush means that you press the foundation over the top, so the concealer will stay underneath. Foundation wise - doublewear, lancome 24H (my favourite), or something similar. BB cream is not going to work ;)
Are you sure you're ok?what kind of tumble?face and body bruises will not go unnoticed To reduce bruises,get flannel place in really hot water,press it against bruse 1-2min and then rolling massage The heat draws blood to surface and massage disperses it
If you're in a client facing role,I'd call manager and explain,rather than let them see by looking
