Got Gluten? (Make-up Edition)

If you're sensitive to gluten like me, makeup can really affect us if accidentally ingested. I tend to have bad reactions to products with fragrances, or products that use gluten as a binding agent, (who knew?! Thanks science!) Keep reading to learn more about my go-to makeup products, that are Gluten Free, and essential to my routine.

Seriously, I love this foundation. I had tried a several foundations that were said to be great for sensitive skin, but I actually didn’t think about gluten in terms of skin products, I came across Cover FX in sephora, and tried both the foundation and the corrector, and was amazed. You can control your coverage from light to heavy, by simply adding your favorite moisturizer. Cover FX also has foundation drops that are becoming more popular, and it’s next on my list to try! Read below for more info on the Natural Finish Foundation that I personally use.

Available in 40 global shades, this oil free foundation has a silky, hydrating feel that glides on the skin and imparts a radiant, second-skin finish. Loaded with skincare ingredients, it contains Vitamin C and Vitamin E to protect against free radicals.

The lightweight texture is formulated to leave a luminous, soft focus finish to the skin and is buildable for a medium to full coverage.

Does NOT Contain: Parabens, Sulfates, Phthalates, Fragrance, Gluten, Mineral Oil, Talc


I love this redness correct pen, and it actually works. You may think its weird at first to put green on your face, but don’t worry… you’re not going to look like the wicked witch of the west, unless you booked broadway, in which case order 7 and apply heavily...ANYHOO, the green pigment actually counteracts the redness you see on your face. After applying the correction, you can easily blend with the Natural finish foundation, and your skin won’t hate you.
