Clean Makeup Products For Sensitive Skin

It’s no secret that I’ve been on a mission to switch to as many clean products as possible. Pretty much my entire skincare/body routine has switched but makeup has been much harder. As someone with very sensitive skin, I am really careful with new products and try to only try 1-2 at a time. It has taken me over 2 years but I have finally switched all of my makeup over to clean makeup products for sensitive skin.

Clean Makeup Products For Sensitive Skin

 

Clean Eye Makeup

Mascara is something I wear each day even if I wear pretty much no other makeup so this is one I really wanted to switch. ILIA Beauty makes my favorite one and I have raved about it several times including here where I did my ILIA Beauty review where I went through several of their products.

Brown gel is another item I wear daily no matter what. So I tried the ILIA essential brow gel and it has quickly become my favorite. Even more so than most of the ones I have raved about in the past.

I don’t wear eyeshadow a ton unless I am getting REALLY done up but I love so many products from RMS beauty and I love their eye polish! It’s a great option for a clean eyeshadow.

Liquid liner is always my favorite. I really don’t like pencils and when I picked up the W3ll people mascara I also tried the liquid liner and honestly it compares so well to the non-clean ones I have used. Another great one is the ILIA Beauty liquid liner.

Clean Face Makeup

RMS beauty un-cover up was the first clean beauty product I ever tried and it’s been a favorite since. I love the consistency and it really covers all the signs of no sleep. But the concealer I use EVERY single day is the ILIA true serum concealer. This is a great clean comparison for the NARS creamy concealer.

I honestly don’t wear foundation much. If I do it’s the ILIA true skin serum foundation. It is extremely lightweight, does not cake, and really doesn’t feel like a foundation. But the coverage is incredible. I also use the ILIA priming serum. This was one of my hardest switches because I love the Laura Mercier primer. This is a really good switch for that.

When it comes to bronzer, highlight,  and powder again I have to go to RMS beauty as I just think their products are insanely good! The magic illuminizer is so good for every day! Such a great throw on and look amazing product. I also love their bronzing luminizing powder for a quick glow. The un-powder is a great translucent powder to set!

I am OBSESSED with the ILIA Beauty multi-stick. This is a great cream blush and you can really build it as you blend it in.

Why Clean Makeup?

Truthfully I never thought I would be the type of person that felt like I needed to switch my products to clean makeup. After doing research and seeing the results it was having on my skin I was sold. Sure, there are times I will try the occasional nonclean item or brand but I really try to stick to clean makeup.

    I’ve been switching out a lot of things in my house for clean products as well. I haven’t even tackled makeup yet. I only wear eye shadow, eye liner, and mascara. I’ll have to check out the ones you mentioned because I haven’t done any research yet and this gives me a place to start.

    I’m just basic when it comes to makeup. My eyeliner, maybe mascara and my lip gloss or favorite lipstick. I do like to try new things if I see something I like..

    I’ve wanted to make a change towards clean makeup. I know that it could make my skin better if I did. But I just don’t trust the efficacy! Maybe I’ll give some of these a try.

    I’m looking forward to giving some of these products a try. I’m wary of clean products because they often use ingredients that, while cleaner or healthier for most, I’m super allergic to (avocado, oats, soy, etc.) so I have to be careful. BUT I’ll definitely need to look into these. I would love to switch up my routine!

    I am working on slowly switching myself over, too. My skin is also very sensitive, so I am taking it slow like you said. I will have to try a few of these as they are all new to me.
