Does anyone have any suggestions for brands of make up for someone who never wears makeup?
I tend to breakout easily (rashes/acne/etc) to makeup, so whenever I’d try to wear any in high school, I’d give up just because before I’d even worn it for an hour I’d be wanting to claw my face off.
As such, I have no idea what I’m doing (so I’m going to need someone to do my makeup for me), and all the places I’ve asked have said to bring in what I want to use and they’ll do it. But since I don’t wear it, and I’m so sensitive, I have NO idea what to get or what I need, etc.
I’m allergic to aloe (whoot! lovely red rashes), so anything with aloe in it is immediately out.
Also, when I get warm/nervous, my face is the first to flush and turn red and start sweating, so I’m afraid that as I’m standing for pictures, or the nerves of the ceremony, or while were dancing, whatever I’m wearing is going to look weird due to the flushed face, or come off onto my dress or anything else I might touch to my face.
Can anyone out there give me some pointers or ideas? Any ideas for brands to get or what to buy?

Bare Minerals by Bare Escentuals.
Natural, gentle and feels light on your skin. If you have an Ulta or Sephora in your area, go there to have a free trial and see how you like it.

I agree…Bare escentuals. It’s light, shouldn’t cause you to break out, and super easy to apply, plus there’s a lot of colors and you shouldn’t have trouble getting it to blend. It is a little pricey ($25) but it lasts a long time. I also recommend buying one of their brushes (I really like the long handled baby-buki). You could also probably save some money if you just bought a starter kit.

There’s actually a Bare Minerals Boutique in the mall next to my house. I’ll have to go check that out…

I had the same problem with breakouts in hight school! Few years back I tryed Mary Kay not one breakout since, and as for eye eyeshadow I LOVE ELF and its really cheap! Hope I helped

I tried Mary Kay and Avon in college. While I could use the facial cleansers OK, the makeup still caused me to break out. My skin is sooo sensitive to stuff it’s insane.

I also recommend Bare Minerals- Its fabulous! Very breathable and it has staying power! I find that it stays on MUCh longer if you get the Mineral Veil on top! Good luck!

I haven’t ever tried the Bare Minerals, but I LOVE PUR minerals. I used to break out a lot too, until I started using the PUR minerals, and now my skin stays so clear & fresh looking. I usually buy mine at Ulta, but every once in a while they run a great deal on the PUR minerals website too.

Personally, I don’t like Bare Minerals. I feel like it doesn’t really give me coverage for my dark spots and constantly red cheeks. I’m suprised that they want you to bring makeup, my artist just used her stuff on me and I didn’t have to bring anything.

Aveeno Clear Complexion moisturizer is AMAZING under makeup and to keep your skin clear.

I have very sensitive combination skin and I use Alima Pure mineral makeup. Its similar to bare escentuals, but fewer ingredients. Unfortunately I think its only sold online, so its kind of annoying to find your colour.

I never wear makeup and I quickly discovered that my skin was super sensitive. I tried a few drug store brands but ended up only being able to wear clinque foundation. Didn’t cause one breakout or rash. Wonderful!
