Best Eye Makeup for Sensitive Eyes

December 13, 2019

Eyes are one of the most sensitive parts of the body. Cosmetics can enhance their look, but certain ingredients found in beauty products can cause irritation to sensitive eyes and present dangers to overall eye health. Some of these include color additives, parabens, fragrances, talc, sulfates, preservatives, bismuth oxychloride, and fragrances.

Many makeup brands today, however, have taken extra steps to create quality products without adding damaging ingredients.

Below are some of the best eye makeup brands for sensitive eyes.

BareMinerals (also known as Bare Escentuals) is famous for being one of the first companies to introduce the world to mineral makeup. They are most known for their skin-friendly cosmetics, but they also include a variety of high-quality eye makeup created for sensitive eyes. Their products do not include parabens, artificial oils, or synthetic fragrances. On top of that, most of their eye products have been ophthalmologist-tested and come in a range of shades. Best of all, they provide a lasting finish for any occasion.

Almay is a top drugstore brand known for its skin and eye-friendly cosmetics. All of their products, including eye makeup, are tested for toxicity, sensitizing potential, and irritancy which ensures that they do not include any chemical ingredients that could negatively affect eye health. Almay also offers a variety of products formulated specifically for those with sensitive eyes and those who wear contact lenses.

One of the biggest names in makeup for sensitive eyes is Clinique. Formulated without any known allergens, this brand offers high-quality products ideal for sensitive eyes and those who wear contact lenses.

Physicians Formula is a top hypoallergenic drugstore makeup brand that is also rated the number one natural/organic face and eye makeup brand. All of their products are specially formulated to cater to those with skin and eye sensitivity. They do not contain any fragrances or parabens and are recommended by eye health professionals. Physicians Formula features their Organic Wear line, a collection of makeup products formulated without harsh chemicals, GMOs, gluten, or synthetic colors.

Known for their cruelty-free makeup with “good-for-you ingredients,” Tarte Cosmetics offers an array of eye makeup for sensitive eyes. None of their products are made with parabens, mineral oil, sulfates, or other harsh chemicals, and most of them are ophthalmologist-tested to ensure a non-irritating experience for those with sensitive eyes.

While these makeup brands can provide less irritation for many with sensitive eyes, it is also important to remember to keep brushes and cosmetics tools clean. Over time, bacteria accumulates in these items and can cause eye issues and damage. Regularly cleaning these items can prevent bacteria buildup and reduce the risk of eye problems in the future.
