Solution:
Wash your hands, and then use your ring finger to smooth out any concealer that has begun to crease. Prevent the concealer from creasing by setting it with a small amount of pressed powder. For best results, use a small brush or sponge, making sure to blend the powder from where the eye and nose meet, softening out to the temple where any crow's-feet lines may reach; you want to avoid putting excess powder on wrinkles.

Solution: 
If you scrub too much, first try treating the area with a gentle moisturizer or some Vaseline. If you don't experience relief within a couple of days, switch to an over-the-counter 1% hydrocortisone cream to calm inflammation and redness.

Solution:
If your face tends to get oily after a few hours out and about, blot (never wipe) your face with some oil absorbing sheets. If it's an oil emergency and you don't have any, a piece of toilet paper or paper toilet seat cover will work just as well.
