Eczema-Friendly 'No Make Up' Make Up

I can probably count on my fingers how many times I've worn make up in the past five months but recently I've been dabbling into a little 'no make up' make up and it works really well for my skin! It doesn't irritate my eczema and takes just a few minutes to do, which I'm sure many of us appreciate (I'd much rather spend more time in bed!)

Anyway, I thought I'd share what products I've been using in my makeup routine as they might help you if you suffer with eczema or dry skin.

I find that my skin gets quite dull, especially because of my eczema. So to add a bit of life back into my skin I dab a little bit of liquid highlighter on the top of my cheeks. My current choice is the No7 Skin Illuminator - it's a really nice champagne shade that just makes my skin so lovely and glowy. No7 products are also hypoallergenic so it is perfect for sensitive skin.

Before I apply any make up, I usually slather a bunch of moisturiser or oil on my skin so it likely needs a small amount of powder so it is a bit matte. I don't over powder but just a little dab here and there makes me feel less like a grease ball. This one by NYX is great but sometimes I replace it with a little baby powder.

Next up, mascara. Boy I have missed wearing mascara. Since I haven't been wearing make up because of my eczema flare ups, I forgot that I can still use mascara as it doesn't touch my skin! Currently I've been loving the L'Oreal False Lash Telescopic Mascara because it doesn't make my lashes clumpy, separates them beautifully and make me look so much more awake.

I also seem to have crazy brows sometimes so I've been gelling them down with some clear mascara (I just use any cheap one I can find!) What a difference it makes - I don't even need to fill them in, just a bit of eyebrow gel makes a world of a difference.

Last but not least, a lip colour. I love the GOSH lipstick in Cinnamon - it's a really nice soft pinky nude shade. I usually pop this on or keep it simple with some Vaseline.

That's my 'no make up' make up look! What are your favourite products to use?
