I may not understand the situation exactly, but can’t you buy some cheap disposable sponges to use with traditional foundation?

 What about using a palette? When I went for my makeup trial, my makeup artist used a lot of liquid products and squirted them onto a palette. Then she worked from the palette. For creamy products, she used a little knife thing to cut some product from the tub, and put that on the palette too. Obviously doesn’t work for powders, but I think there are lots of cream or liquid eye products, and blushes out there.

If you sterilized the palette and the “knife” tool before each use, would that work? Then you could use cheap disposable sponges each day, and never cross contaminate the makeup bottles themselves.

Edit: ah, I see sponges aren’t a great option.

I use the in-between every day which is an aerosol can foundation by Sephora. Dior also makes a spray on foundation but at much higher price.

When I did stage makeup (Lots of different people’s faces using the same makeup, very high risk of contamination), we used pallets. We sterilized a metal paddle tool to place the makeup on the pallet (which was cleaned with 90% alcohol) and we used it once per person. It was washed inbetween. The area that needed to be restocked (if needed) was cleaned with alcohol.

I mean, if you want to do an airbrush, you do you. But if the tip touches your face or hands, you’ll need to clean it as bacteria grows incredibly quickly in closed off environments, and I’m not sure how much of a PITA it would be to clean that. You seem to have your mind made up on an airbrush though, so if you want to drop that kind of money, go for it.

I have an airbrush system which I’ve only tried once.  I can see it’s going to take a LOT of practice to get the foundation on evenly.  Thus far, it’s sitting on my dresser unused.

So can you not double dip just in the eye area or is it your your whole face? I would use a sponge for everything except for the area around my eyes and look for another solution for the eyes.

I guess I’m not understanding this.  Makeup isn’t sterile to begin with, not in the proper sense of the word.  And if you’re using, say, mascara, putting the wand away and then using it again, whatever bacteria in there have come from your own face, so it’s not like you’d be exposing yourself to something new.

I think that for your own health you need to stop using make-up. I know that it might be difficult but it is not worth the pain and suffering.

I think most people’s initial concerns is the learning curve on using it on a daily basis. If you haven’t had proper training, the application can have the opposite effect of light coverage and end up looking like a mask. I’ve had airbrush done once professionally, and as someone who wears foundation daily, I hated the way it made me look in person. It was great for the pictures I was taking, but I felt I looked silly in person. I do hope you find something that works for you though!

Interestingly enough I just did a quick Google research on drugstore brand airbrush make up and Sally Hansen has one you might try before shelling out the money for a whole airbrush system (the kind with the spray wand that most people are probably thinking of). Here’s what it looks like.

I am not here till give you make up suggestions, I just want to, without seeing you, tell you that you DO look normal … Light skin tone, 40 year old skin with freckles and even rashes are, in fact, very normal and please dont risk your eyes just to even out your skintone, that is just dumb! Let your eyes rest and focus on living your life cause no one except yourself will really care about if you wear make up or not! I don’t want to sound rude but please dont be stupid.

 

When I was younger I had a allergy in my eyes and I would have needed to wear shades to protect my eyes, all year around, I never wore them cause I felt soooo silly and embarrased, and I pay for that now cause that damaged my eyes. I am not blind, but worse off that I would have been if I had not been so stupid. My excuse is that I was a teenager, a 40 something doesnt have any acceptable excuses! Listen to your doc!
