How to apply green makeup on a temporarily red face?

I'm a 20-something year old female that currently does not wear makeup. I know as much about applying makeup as this guy
. I wouldn't waste the money and time applying and buying makeup if I didn't have to. However, I have mild Rosacea that comes and goes, which has left me suicidally depressed these last five years when it was more frequent (For reasons unknown the frequency of the flushing has reduced significantly since 2011 and I no longer struggle with a burning lobster red face on a daily basis.), and I would like to not have to endure the painful joke or comment about it the unpredictably rare times my face flushes and feels hot to the touch in public. It's for this reason I'd like to learn a few makeup tips for someone with mild Rosacea, sensitive skin, and an otherwise pale olive complexion. If it helps, the picture in my profile is misleading; my skin tone is closer to this shade
on a good day. How do I apply the appropriate makeup (green makeup, apparently) when I'm not always red but know I will be at some point during the day? Wouldn't green makeup make me look, uh, green when I'm not flushing?
