make up you experience this problem?

December 22, 2009 12:07pm CST
I like to look beautiful and presentable but I am scared to use make up because I'm not sure which cosmetic products that suits my skin. I can't use Maybelline and Avon, I tried Silky Girl and still I feel itch on my face and sometime when I use their lipstick or lip gloss my lips will get itch, swell or get really rough, and in a few days it will start to crack. So do you get this kind of problem too? How do you choose the right product for your skin...any tips?

I rarely use make-up, a little lipsticks and such but little else unless it is a special occasion, this means that since my skin is not used to it it always breaks out the next day when I use base for instance. Nothing like you though, the only thing that does that to me, is some of the Oil of Olay products (tried some once, my face looked like I had sunburn). Depending on how sensitive your skin is there are hypo-allergenic make-up which is available at certain stores or beauticians. There is also the possibility of trying home made make-up which uses everyday products to make things like base using unscented baby powder among others here is a quick link I found but there are many others with various tips that allows people who are sensitive to make-up access to other products

Yes, I have to be so careful with the make-up that I use because it can cause me to break out.
