Makeup For Sensitive Skin

More about our sensitive skin makeup


A lot of people ask us what's the best makeup for sensitive skin so we decided to put together this collection of the most safe and effective Colorescience products. We had a head start here because we're big on natural minerals and botanical extracts, which are already great ingredients for sensitive skin products, and now you can find everything you need in one place.


Browse through the various products available to find something you can replace from your regular routine and enjoy the confidence that comes with knowing you can trust your makeup. Now, let's go deeper in to some of the details.


Can I wear makeup if I have sensitive skin?


The short answer is yes, by wearing makeup for sensitive skin!  You just need to be a bit more mindful of the ingredients that go in to the products you're using and perhaps do some more research. Luckily for you, the team here at Colorescience has put in the work and we have developed a range of makeup for sensitive skin that is far less likely to cause problems than traditional types of cosmetics.


As you can see, we don't simply offer treatments that aim to lessen the symptoms associated with sensitive skin – our products aim to prevent these symptoms from ever occurring in the first place. For example, our Natural Finish Pressed Powder Foundation is non-comedogenic which means it won't block your pores. It also provides hydration which soothes the skin and actually helps to control oil production as well.


Why is mineral makeup good for sensitive skin?


Mineral-based makeup is better for sensitive skin compared to traditional chemical-based products for a number of reasons. You still get a great finish that is lightweight and allows your pores to breathe and the extra hydration, but you don't get all of the risky chemicals that are commonly found in regular makeup.


Basically, when it comes to makeup for sensitive skin the main idea is to use natural ingredients wherever possible instead of chemicals. Two of the main active ingredients in our range of makeup are zinc and titanium. These are natural minerals sourced from the earth and then milled into a fine powder. By using minerals we can create healthy and effective makeup with ingredients that have stood the test of time.


We also use many botanical extracts that nourish and repair the skin, instead of causing long-term damage like so many other types of makeup can.
