tshel4:  Urban Decay. Normally I would recommend Armani but you have sensitive skin and a lower price point. Urban’s Naked foundation is great. Don’t forget to use a primer. I also like Urban’s setting spray All Nighter

I would suggest Estée Lauder double wear for heavy coverage, oil control, and staying power. Its a little less than 40 bucks and it has tons of shade selections. 

 

For a slightly cheaper option, the sephora airbrush foundation is great, but can be tricky to apply. Shade selection is not as great. 

 

For a drugstore option, I would go with Revlon colorstay whipped. It stays great on my oily skin and the coverage is awesome. 

 

I have rosacea, so I have extremely sensitive skin, and these all work for me. I would get a sample of the Estée Lauder, or have someone at sephora try the airbrush makeup out on you and see how you like it! 

 

Like the PP said, the urban decay all nighter setting spray is amazing, but that combined with your foundation might be out of your budget.

I wore makeup forever, looked flawless, covered my eczema, I still got alot of compliments about how naturally pretty I Looked. its makeup that can be laid out for glam or for a soft look. I suggest going to sephora and havung the people apply it. If you get frustrated come back another day and try again.

Estee Lauder Double Wear may be a good option, but I think the new version has an SPF and might flash back in photography.  The counter in a local department store will colour match you and give you a 10 day sample so you can try it at home in various lights and with photographs to test it out.

Revlon Colorstay is another great option and cheap too!

I personally like the Smashbox 15h Studio Skin but not sure of the price point? Again, if you have a local Sephora head in there and get colour matched and get a few samples to try out.

cdncinnamongirl:  I actually think the old formula had SPF in it but not the new version.  I know it used to but my bottle now makes no indication of an SPF (which I prefer).  

doublewear you can get a free 10 day sample of so I would try that and see if you like it or not.
