hey everyone, with my lupus its really hard for me to wear makeup, im 15 and im in love with makeup. but the problem is most makeup irrates my lupus and havent been able to wear any at all unless i buy really expensive makeup. my question is for those who do wear makeup what makeup do you use that works well but wont irrate my face?

I personally don't wear a lot of makeup, but in general, they say Neutrogena is best for the skin, and I've heard many positive things about it. The mineral makeup they have been coming out with lately should be good, seeing as it's supposed to be all natural. You're 15 year old; you probably don't need to use a foundation at all. I would just keep the makeup really light. :-)

Bek, I don't know any store, whether it be a drug store or a large department store, that won't take back something that you bought but were allergic too. Keep your receipts till you try the products, and if they don't work, take them back for a refund. I've done in more than once.

I hope you find something that works.

I also use Bare Minerals, it works great and it feels like you have nothing on, it also has SPF in it too. Right now on their website they have a starter kit for $29!

I've heard good things about Bare Minerals....I don't wear make-up all the time, but I have been using Clinique for awhile and like it pretty good. I hope you find something that works well for you.
