3. Choose the texture you are comfortable with: When you have sensitive skin, there are some textures which suit your skin and some which don’t. You have to first figure out what your skin is reactive to. Blushes can come in powder form or can come in a creamy texture. If you have dry and sensitive skin, it is always best to go for hydrating blushes which are usually in cream form. However, if you think the dense nature of the creams makes your skin breakout and react, you can go for the lighter powder blushes. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. More about them below.
- If you have dry skin which is prone to breaking out and becoming flaky when it is devoid of moisture (which tends to happen annoyingly happen), then you can check out a range of high-end cream-based blushes which are available. These act as a protective layer on your skin, and give you that ingénue-like glow without drying your skin out, which makes it a double whammy. Here is what we recommend:
Yves Saint Laurent Baby Doll Kiss And Blush
Tarte Cheek Stain in Dazed
Lakme 9to5 Lip and Cheek Mousse
- People who have sensitive skin, which is also oily have a problem with cream blushes however. The creaminess of the blushes can block your pores and make your face appear even more oily, leading to blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, acne and a host of other problems. You need to keep your makeup light and breathable, no matter how dramatic. Lucky for you, there are a number of heavy-duty powder blushes which are highly pigmented and give you the perfect blush effect without straining your skin. Here are our top choices.
Benefit Galifornia Blush
Hourglass Cosmetics Ambient Lighting Blush Collection
Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Blush
When you are choosing makeup for your sensitive skin, you have to be extra careful about the components that your makeup is made of. Whether you are going for foundation, concealer, primer, or anything else, choose makeup which is as natural as possible, contains things like minerals, Vitamins, SPF, natural extracts, etc. Also, try out the makeup on a patch of skin before your final application to see whether it is reacting with your skin or not, because if you put on your makeup without trying, it could end in disaster. Hope these tips for choosing the best blush for sensitive skin helped you figure out what you were looking for!
