Highly rated brands that produce makeup for sensitive eyes include Almay, Physicians Formula and Clinique, according to TotalBeauty. These brands offer such eye makeup products as mascara, eyeliner and eye shadow and all have formulas designed to be gentle for sensitive eyes.
Those with sensitive eyes should avoid powered eye shadows and lengthening mascaras, as these products may travel into the eye and cause irritation. They should also avoid makeup made with carmine. This ingredient may also appear on labels as red No. 4, carminic acid, C.I. 75470 or E120. Individuals with sensitive skin should try to use natural makeup, which has less of a chance of irritation.
