Having sensitive skin is sometimes seen as a double punishment: It is hyper-reactive and make-up is banned. And yet this everyday pleasure need not be forbidden, not even on very fragile skin. Quite the opposite, it can actually neutralize redness, improve the appearance of skin reactions, and protect the skin against external aggressors.
Test products before committing yourself
Sensitive skin reacts to factors usually tolerated by “ordinary” skin. It is therefore important, before adopting a product, to test it on a small part of your face. If you experience no discomfort within 24 hours of applying it, it’s good news you have found the right product for you.
Matte compact for smooth base
A matte compact powder is ideal for those with sensitive skin. This is because a compact is often said to be milder than a foundation for your skin. You can also opt for mineral compact powder that will protect your skin.
Water-proof eye makeup
With a wide range of water-proof makeup available for sensitive skin, the eyes should also not be neglected. Water-proof mascara and kohl or an eye pencil are your best bet.
