For people with sensitive skin, finding a consistent makeup routine can be the worst. We go to YouTube, searching the "world's best foundations," just to find out that the ingredients will immediately send us into a breakout — at least I know I do. And when we search for all-natural makeup, the results are, well ... not what we want. It really seems unfair; like, why is my sensitive skin such a hindrance on me achieving the beat faces everyone else flaunts?
Well, we can. It's not as simple as running into your local Sephora and grabbing whatever is on the shelves, but it's possible. Ahead, check out 10 of the best beauty brands (and products) for anyone with sensitive skin. They're all made with clean, organic ingredients and won't leave your face angry with you.
