Default Makeup with the fewest ingredients?

Hi everyone! I'm new to this particular board. I thought I would ask what you gals would rec for simple simple makeup. I have keratosis pilaris and rosacea on my face, so it seems like everything irritates it. I'm hoping to find some makeup that gives decent coverage yet is light enough to not irritate my skin or clog my pores.

I feel like I've tried millions of mineral makeups, but I'm open for suggestions.

Thank you!

Meow Cosmetics mineral foundation is well liked by many here, including me - no bismuth, no talc, no silica. About as natural as you can get, I guess. They sell samples so you can find your right formula and color.

If you don't want powder, I've also been using Illuminare liquid mineral foundation this winter - they call it liquid but it's really more of a cream. You can get a sample kit of each of the three different formulas in four different colors for $10.

You could try a tinted moisturizer, most don't have much coverage but I think most of them are pretty gentle. The buffing motion required for powders irritates my skin a lot so I prefer a liquid, personally.

Yeah, if you need any coverage at all, tinted moisturizers don't do the trick. I wish I could get away with just that. That's why I like the Illuminare - coverage but no buffing and no mess. Both my rosacea and seborrheic dermatitis are happy with either it or Meow.

Thanks for the tip on illuminare, auntnett! Everything has been irritating my dry, sensitive skin these days...even the Meow stuff. Just ordered a sample packet from illuminare.

Jane Iredale mineral makeup. I have KP on my face (laser treatments cleared it up) and very sensitive skin. Her stuff is amazing! www.janeiredale.com

When I wear them, I apply my minerals with a flocked sponge (from EDM, which I am switching from for the actual powder) - just sharing that you don't necessarily have to use the "swirl, tap, buff" method of application.

Yeah, I often just use a cheap drugstore powder puff to press it on and then brush off the excess with a soft fluffy brush instead of the stiffer flat topped applicator brush or even a kabuki. I get good coverage and it makes a little less mess than the usual buffing application.
