Finding the perfect makeup is hard enough, but for combination skin types like those with oily and sensitive skin, it can be even harder. Although it's tough, don't give up. There are plenty of cosmetics that cater to your skin type. From foundation to makeup remover and everything you use in between, these brands have got you covered.
When choosing a foundation for oily, sensitive skin, you’ll want to make sure that your makeup is oil-free and it is also free of other irritating chemicals and ingredients. Bare Escentuals BareMinerals Matte SPF 15 Foundation is highly rated by both consumers and beauty experts like “Allure,” who awarded it a Best of Beauty award in 2010. Because this foundation is a loose-powder type, free of any unnecessary ingredients and has a matte finish, it is perfect for your oily, sensitive skin type.
Pick an eye color brand that you know will last and last when other ones seem to "melt" away due to your oily skin. A product like Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow is not only a long-lasting formula, but it also leaves a matte finish. Keep your eyes peeled for formulations that claim they are "long-lasting" or "crease-free," then you'll know that these ones will work for you.
Who doesn’t have imperfections to conceal? But when you have oily or sensitive skin (or both), you may wonder how to conceal your blemishes without causing irritation. Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Correcting Concealer is a 3-in-1 product designed to help you cover and conceal without irritating sensitive skin. Brighten under-eye circles with the yellow correcting fluid, hide blemishes and other imperfections with the concealer and brighten your complexion with a highlighter.
Now that you have found all the best type of makeup for oily, sensitive skin, it is time to take it all off. Use a makeup remover that is sans any oil and is formulated for sensitive skin like Neutrogena Extra Gentle Eye Makeup Remover Pads. They remove your makeup like the best of them, but are gentle enough not to irritate sensitive skin.
