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.

Colorescience All Calm Corrector

Best primer for enlarged pores ever

I've been using ColoreScience All Calm Corrector for over a year now. It's the only primer I've come across that doesn't go lumpy at the end of the day, show track marks or highlight enlarged pores by sitting on top of them like polka dots.

I have rosacea, oily t-zone and am developing horrible orange peel texture on forehead and nose. All Calm Corrector doesn't clog or aggravate my ...

An all time classic

This foundation has been a part of my life nearly 15 years now and I can’t ever find another foundation that does as good coverage without build up. It smooths over skin perfectly and stays on the entire day (especially withy the Mac mineralize pressed powder!) would highly recommend
