Need drugstore makeup which is fragrance-free and waterproof

I need recommendations for drugstore items for fragrance-free and waterproof mascara, eyeliner pencil, and some type of makeup.  

 

I have been doctoring for eye watering and cannot wear regular makeup because the makeup runs and I am a mess!  Can anyone make recommendations for some items which stay put, but will not be horrible to remove?  

 

I have not really ever worn waterproof because I never needed it before and felt it was awful to remove!  I don't want expensive items because I am experimenting now and may not be able to wear anything!  

 

Thanks so much for all suggestions!

With all the problems you have with being so sensitive to so many things,why not stop using.

@AngelPuppy1... I highly recommend
L'Oreal Bambi Eye Waterproof mascara. It stays on well AND removes easily. My favorite part is that it holds my curl too. For foundation, I love BareMinerals Original Loose foundation. I've been wearing it daily for more than 16 years! It stays on through heavy yard work. I don't have an eyeliner pencil recommendation because I only use gel liners in a pot with an angled brush.

Good luck to you. I hope you find products that will work for you.

I have!  I haven't been wearing anything!  I have been feeling so ugly!  My eyes without anything are so blah to begin with.  And my skin without anything is not good - red, broken caps, uneven.  It does not do anything for your self-esteem, I can tell you that!  I have been to the doctor 3 times already for this and have been given 4 different medications and it's helped some but not enough!  I thought I'd like to at least try some products which are fragrance-free and waterproof to see if they would work and at least make me feel human!

Thank you!  I appreciate the recommendations.  You're very kind!  I don't wear at lot of makeup and don't wear any really when I am home, but I decided if I tried to put a little on it might make me feel better about myself!

@AngelPuppy1  I just Googled "makeup for sensitive eyes" and it shows a lot of information and products. Clinique, even though not drugstore, has many items for sensitivity, but there are others. I think Physicians Formula has hypoallergenic products. You could even try YouTube. 

 

I know that I feel better if I look better, so I understand why you want to wear it. You just need to find products that work for you - they are out there, so don't give up. 🙂

I would use a setting spray instead of any kind of waterproof foundation. I have recommended this MILANI product several times here. It's got hundreds of top reviews for it and you can get it at b&m stores for less than $10.

Hi I too have very sensitive eyes . I have blepharitis ,so while i dont have tearing . I have very sensitve eyes and can get very big painful things that look like big whiteheads on my lids and lashlines. While working from home . I am not wearing eyemakeup . What I have found that makes a huge difference is filling in my eyebrows .  I found that just by filling in my brows makes a huge difference, and really opens up the eyes . When I do wear mascara I find Thrive Causmetics is great . It is not drugstore but sold at Ulta . 1 coat really gives a full look. If I do wear shadows for going out I try to wear just a single wash of color . I can't recommend a drugstore one I use Senna. I will say for me more important than the eyemakup is the removal of it . I hav tried several eyemakeup removers even ones for sensitive skin , which iritated by eyes terribly . I have had luck with the the Inkey List Oat cleansing balm very soothing and fragrance free . It is sold at Sephora with a good price 9.99 for a 5 once tube . 

I understand you perfectly since I am 57  and in the 80s and 90s eyemakeup was worn  all day everyday . Hope this helps

Thank you!  I have been trying to be patient, but I am so tired of looking so blah all the time.  When you look blah, it makes you feel all the more blah!  And there is so much out there on-line when you are looking, it is overwhelming!
