Shop Sensitive & Acne Friendly Makeup


It can be really difficult to find makeup that is right for your skin type, especially when your skin is sensitive and reactive, or you're suffering through a breakout.These are our best picks for makeup that is free from common irritants, yet give your face a flawless finish.

 

if your skin is sensitive, it's possible that makeup part of the problem - if some ingredients don't agree with your skin they may cause congestion, or irritation. It's often very difficult to pinpoint what is causing the issue, however it is good to look for hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic products that do not contain potentially problematic ingredients. And remember - what works for you may not work for others, and vice versa.

 

If your skin is sensitive or acne-prone, try using foundations, tinted moisturisers or BB creams with mineral-based physical sunscreens. Keep an eye out for Zinc Oxide or Titanium Dioxide - they sound like a mouthful, but they're both mineral ingredients that block the sun naturally. These aren't absorbed by the skin, so are great if your skin is sensitised.

 

Another thing to try is a mineral powder! Many new-generation mineral powders are made with skincare ingredients and emollients, so you may be very surprised at how flattering and hydrating they are - they don't cling to flaky or uneven skin areas, and give the look of natural skin with just a bit of blending. They're also perfect for sensitive skin, and feel like wearing nothing at all.

Beautiful consistency and coverage

I have been looking for a foundation with medium coverage that doesn't look cakey or dry on my skin and I finally found it! I am obsessed! I always get compliments when I wear this foundation.
This foundation is quite thick, moisturiser and primer is a must. I wear it with just the slightest dusting of powder over the top because I don't like too much coverage.

LOOOVE this foundation

Best foundation I have ever used. I prefer lightweight makeup, however, with decent coverage. And this satisfies both for me. It just seems to mold onto my face and blends really well. I use this foundation by itself on a day to day basis, and over liquid foundation on a night out when I want to be more 'glam' :)

Great product for oily skin

I have oily skin and have used a range of mineral powders which tend to make my skin very oily. Inika is the best mineral powder I have ever used. I use Nurture most of the time and Trust when I have a fake tan.

The Best primer ever!!!

Ok so I’ll be honest, I didn’t even know what primer was until I tried it.
This was the first I had tried and it was amazing.
My make up is so even and the primer helps make it last longer.
I thought I’d try a more expensive brand thinking it will be so much better because it’s a designer band.
Wasn’t I shocked to found out I just paid triple the price for a primer that was really not great.
I now use Nude by Nature EVERYTHING, I love it so much never disappoints.
