Allergic rash on face from make up brush ?

Brush or make-up: More likely the rash would be from an allergy to the make-up. Some people are sensitive to specific brushes, but more brushes these days are made from synthetic materials...More plastic than hair, which don't typicaly cause allergies. However, these are both treated with short courses of cool compresses, benadryl, (diphenhydramine) and if needed a little Hydrocortisone (twice a day for a week).

Razor burn or: Sensitivity to products used. Insure you use fresh, sharp blades vice dull blades. If hair is > several mm long – then trim before shaving. Wash area before shaving – warm water helps to soften hair. Use a lubricant when shaving. Avoid using products that contain alcohol or are scented. Shave in direction of the hair – not against it. Be gentle when shaving – don’t push down too hard. Moisturize.

Time will Heal: As long as there is no pus or increasing swelling one just has to give the skin time to heal. I would also ask the person waxing you to use clean or new wax.
