My face is a mess thanks to prednisone. Tips on covering up/reducing the zits as best as possible, pre-job interview?

I'm not a terribly vain person, but my face is a mess lately thanks to taking prednisone for a long time (thanks Crohn's!). I'm at the end of my prednisone taper now and I know my face will clear up at least SOMEWHAT again soon, but I have a job interview tomorrow and I'd like to try to calm things down just a little bit.
Yes, I know that any place that would make a hiring decision based on facial redness is one I should avoid. But I'd like to at least look a LEEEETLE bit less bumpy/red, for my own edification at least.
I'm seeing aspirin/honey masks - maybe tonight? I rarely wear makeup other than some powder. I'll be trying to artfully apply it tomorrow, but I'm not one to go to drag pancake makeup to cover stuff. A lot of the other questions are about long-term acne issues and routines - I already have a decent skin care regime, but this is beyond my control.
Other tips? Tricks?
