I wouldn't say I have really sensitive skin but every time I wear makeup I either turn red with a rash or swell up. I tried Almay and Physicians Formula which both are suppose tobe hypoallergenic but I still react to them. I noticed that this is especially bad when it comes to eye makeup, my eyes just swell and get itchy afterward. Any other girls who have this problem/condition?

Not a girl, but I react to almost all kinds of stuff people use to put on their skin. My fingers peel, I get rashes, I itch and have blisters. Creams, deodorants, aftershave, you name it - pretty much everything.
I started doing without even soap now. (Easier for a guy, yes I know.) And I have improved a lot. It takes a bit of massaging and a lot of hot water to get clean, but I haven't had any rashes, blisters or sores after I stopped with all the chemical stuff. Even my dry flaking skin stopped being a problem - evidently that was an allergic reaction too..
For you girls it is a bit more difficult. But in extreme cases - you could try using pure carbon or graphite for eyeliner. Hard to think anyone would react to that. The softest pencil you can find in the artists store should do the trick.
When it comes to all the other stuff - my advice is simply to stop using it. You'll feel better - and you'll save money. And after a while that is how people will feel is the true you - instead of the made up one that you're presenting now.
