Sensitive Skin Makeup Tips & Tricks | The Makeup Loft

To help those with sensitive or acne-prone skin navigate the waters of makeup, we’ve enlisted Andrea Beauty to share his top tips and tricks for beauty products that both pamper and protect your skin.

We love how makeup can perfect our complexion in an instant, but no one wants a flawless finish that clogs pores. Enter ‘makeup with benefits’, a new generation of makeup multitaskers with supercharged formulas.

Number one on our list is Face Studio Protecting Primer, a water-based formula that smooths skin and offers SPF 8 coverage. Andrea uses a brush to apply primer. Fingers can aggravate irritated skin, a clean brush ensures the right amount of product is applied, with just the right level of pressure.

Next up, spot correction. Going in with Instant Age Rewind Concealer, he uses a sponge to dab product over blemishes, focusing more on red flare-ups. He dusts Fit Me Powder over the same areas to set his makeup.

Those with acne-prone skin tend to overcompensate with foundation, but this often ends up being more detrimental for your skin overall. For foundation, Andrea levels up with the NEW Dream Urban Cover Foundation. The ultimate foundation for summer, it offers the perfect blend of skincare and foundation. Enriched with broad-spectrum SPF 40 and antioxidants, it shields your skin from environmental aggressors. Andrea spritzes a sponge with setting spray before using it to blend in his foundation. This handy hack is perfect for those with dry skin because it removes the need for setting powder – the particles often settle in dry spots, making them more visible and prone to creasing.

Andrea highlights the high points of his face and conceals any dark circles with Instant Age Rewind Concealer. Finally, he goes for a natural glow with Master Contour and completes the look with Colossal Big Shot Mascara.
