Hide the evidence. "A sheer wash of foundation or a BB or CC cream instantly neutralizes redness," says Sonia Kashuk, a makeup artist in NYC. Apply with a slightly damp sponge to further cool your skin.
Avoid eye makeup meltdown. Mascara (even waterproof, which takes awhile to dry) can smudge the second lashes touch warm, sweaty skin, and powder shadows clump. The exception: a waterproof eyeliner marker (like Stila Stay All Day, $20). Don't try to master the cat eye; just dot liner along upper lashes for definition. You can swipe on mascara when you're back at your desk.
Pat lip balm on lips and cheeks. The creamy formula will blend easily. Avoid reds (you're plenty rosy already). Perfect: a carnation pink, like Fresh Sugar Petal Tinted Lip Treatment, $23.
