What type of make up do you wear?

I have never really worn any make-up ever. I'm 22 and I was wanting to try some out. I have sensitive and VERY pale skin so usually any type makes me look oompa loompa-ish. Are the mineral kinds out there any good? Or is there another type you would recommend?

  • I use Clinique. It's very sensitive and they come in very light colors. I am very pale as well. You can go to the make up counter at Macy's and they'll give you a free demo.

  • I love Cover Girl....I have very sensitive skin and it's the only brand that doesn't make me break out!

  • I use Almay, only because I have really sensitive skin. That's is I even wear it. I really don't like makeup either. Most of the time I just put on some mascara, and a little eyeliner , some lip gloss, and call it done...

  • i am very pale, so no drug store brands work for me because they are all to dark or orange.... there are only 2 types of make up that work with my skin.... MAC and Bare Minerals..... bm lasts longer with everyday use one jar of the foundation lasts me about 4-5 months and MAC lasts about 1 month.... MAC is more full coverage but can be a bit heavy and break you out with too much use, Bare Minerals i like when i am pregnant because my skin is more sensitive and i use it everyday... i could even sleep in it and it covers well and does not make me look orange it blends perfect and it almost feels as if i am not wearing any makeup.... if you look at my default pic i am wearing bare minerals foundation and MAC lipstick and you will also see how fair skinned i am. i hope this helped.. you can pm me if you have any other questions

  • I only wear eye makeup usually. When I was pregnant I used Bare Minerals and it worked pretty well on my skin. You can go to a department store and get a free makeover - if the items are too pricey, just try to remember the colors they used and get something similar at the drugstore.

  • I used to wear covergirl but always broke out... then tried Mary Kay mineral powder and I do not need foundation anymore. its lightweight and comes in varied shades... You would probably do well with Ivory 1 in winter and bump it up to Ivory 2 or a beige 1 in the summer depending on tanning.

    Add a little mascara and a lipgloss and you are good to go.

    One other tip: instead of using an eyeliner pen, try using a lip brush and dipping it in your fav eyeshadow and apply it under the lower eyelashes.. Now you can have your eyeliner match your eyeshadow on top, Perfecto!!!
