Understand your Skin
You need to understand your Skin before you start thinking about makeup. Is it sensitive and dry? Oily? Combination? Have you ever had a skin condition like rosacea, eczema, or acne? Do certain ingredients cause your skin to flare up? It is important to understand your Skin’s needs in order to choose the best products.
Read labels when selecting makeup for sensitive Skin. Avoid highly fragranced products as they are more likely to have a negative effect on sensitive Skin. Avoid drying alcohols and witch hazel. Also, avoid citrus, products containing a large percentage of essential oils, and products containing high levels of essential oils. Another problem can be preservatives, particularly methylisothiazolinone and methylcholorisothiazoline, which are often used to replace parabens; these are known sensitizers when used in leave-on products.
Look for “fragrance-free,” “hypoallergenic,” or similar terms. The makeup will be tested to ensure that it is less likely to irritate. Check the label to see if it says “non-comedogenic.” Non-comedogenic makeup will be less likely to cause breakouts by clogging your pores.
Mineral Makeup is the best bet for you, as it’s fragrance-free, non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic, and tends to contain soothing ingredients and skin-loving instead of elements that can irritate.
The right shade
Avoid products that are too yellow when choosing colors. Yellow makeup on red Skin = orange complexion. You will reduce your redness by using neutral shades.
Test your products with a patch.
Patch testing is recommended before applying any new products to your face to test for allergic reactions. Apply the product to an area such as the back of your hand, or use a small amount along your jawline.
Be sure to prep your skin properly.
It’s important to begin with a blank canvas before applying makeup. Remove any impurities with a sensitive cleanser. It’s now time to moisturize. It’s also important to nourish sensitive Skin, as it can be dry. Choose a moisturizer that is designed to soothe and hydrate Skin. This will lock in moisture and create a smooth foundation for makeup. Phytomer’s Douceur Marine Moisturising Creme is our favorite! The cream has a silky texture and is soothing to the Skin. It also reduces redness. It is also deeply hydrating without feeling heavy or greasy.
Use a small amount of the product and gently pat it on your Skin. This will allow the product to absorb naturally and slowly. Add a high-SPF sunscreen to your skincare routine for added protection. This will prevent premature aging and sun damage. We recommend ELES Luminous Defence Brightening Day Protection 50
Prime time is now.
Salute the makeup primer! This product is your best friend. It will also create a barrier that will reduce the chance of irritation. Select a gentle formula. We love ELES Retexturizing Face Primer.

Use a liquid foundation that is breathable and lightweight.
The best-selling Liquid Powder Mineral foundation is the. The foundation is silky and mineral-enriched, providing broad-spectrum protection for the Skin. The liquid formula glides on beautifully to sensitive Skin, setting up as a powder finish. It does not clog the Skin. It’s brilliant.
You can also look for products that do multiple things, such as concealing, treating, and toning in one. Is that a tall order? CC Creams are the answer! These miracle formulas correct color. Instead of covering redness with a thick layer, the CC Cream’s Photonic Crystal Technology “offsets” redness and wrinkles while subtly illuminating Skin.
