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.

Good but not for a natural look

I used to use this foundation when I wanted a full coverage look. This foundation has an interesting smell, however it is definately medium - high coverage. It didn't break me out but I feel like it is quite heavy for everyday. Would look beautiful for events or special occasions.

Good coverage and long lasting

I have normal to dry skin and this foundation doesn’t show any of my dry patches, doesn’t feel cakey or heavy on my face while having a good medium to full coverage and lasts throughout the day. Great for everyday wear since it feels like I’m not wearing anything

Great primer

I got a free sample of this with my order and I just love it. I love that it is silicon based rather than cream, and it just feels so good on my skin.
I’ve used this with a few different foundations (liquid, mousse, powder) and my makeup stays on awesome. Will definitely be buying some when I’m out of my Too Faced Hangover primer.
