proudgeek:  My friend uses Neutrogena makeup because that’s the only foundation/powder that won’t make her break-out or irritate her skin, maybe try their products out? For the eyeshadow I would go with a hgiher-end brand though because it does make a difference in how long it stays.

To be honest though I would seek out a professional make-up artist and tell her/him your concerns. They work with a variety of clients daily and have just the right brands for the right skin. I think it’s better to splurge on your big day than adding the stress of doing your own makeup the day of your wedding.

I have sensitive skin too, and I really like IT cosmetics CC cream as a foundation. I also use the Bare Minerals Original Powder. 

If you have a Sephora or Ulta close, go by and talk to one of the employees. They have always been super helpful when I’m looking to try new things and they’ve made some great suggestions.

I use bare minerals my skin is very sensitive and it has been the only thing I can use wihtout having major issues. You can also have it be very light or have full coverage since it is a powder its easy to have a sheer look.

I tried clinique and hated it (it did not provide enough coverage for me, I need a lot for psoriasis issues), so it might be the right amount for you! Better yet, when I tried it on at the mall, they gave me a free sample so I could take it home and see if it grew on me.

Neutrogena, Bare Minerals… all the ones that are supposed to be made especially for sensitive skin have only made mine worse. The only thing that has every really worked for me is MUAC.com – I have one of their conceler palettes, rice powders, and highlighter. Seriously it’s like a pro makeup artist look. Also love their gental peels, green tea wash, and toners. Toners are like the holy grail. I also use Bobbie Brown waterproof eyeshadow. I don’t currently use eyeliner or mascara, but have heard great things about the BB versions of those too.

I would do a few test runs with makeup artists to find something that works for you. It’s worth it to avoid the stress.
