7. Apply foundation lightly
Some professionals say that applying foundation on a puffy face can only draw even more unwanted attention. What we recommend is to use highly moistening and rich foundation. The point is to apply only a small amount. If you apply blush before foundation it will give you even a better, fresher, and healthier look. Use special applicators and other tools to apply your make-up. What you will need is a clean soft sponge and a wide brush. If you apply make-up using your fingers it increases the risk to spread bacteria, which in your case will only make the situation worse. Irritated and blemished skin is the last thing you would want.
