Default Sensory issues and makeup

Seems a bit silly to bring this up at all here. But I figured I didn't have much to lose.
I don't regularly wear makeup, I mean on of the alters likes to but she doesn't often, it's entirely a sensory issue for me. Especially eye makeup. Not the wearing part of it the putting it on. I've never been able to put on eyeliner or get eyeliner put on me. Anyone who's tried got frustrated. However, I love cosplay and that does often require makeup. Sometimes just a bit and sometimes...a lot of heavy makeup (as with the one I plan to work on next). So how do you get passed or work around the problem of sensitivity when putting it on?

I like using very soft brushes.

Can you do the cosplay of a character that doesn't require much, if any, makeup, rise13eyond? Maybe that would be the ideal solution for you. Sending many hugs to you

I find makeup without glitter to be more comfortable than that with glitter.
