How to Apply Flawless Makeup With Sunscreen

when and how to apply sunscreen with makeup

Sunscreen is an essential step in any makeup routine - but how and, at what point should you use it? With a few easy tips, you can learn how to achieve a flawless makeup look while still protecting your skin. From choosing the right product for your skin type to finding the right application methods, we've got you covered, queen!

Prepare Your Skin

Before you can achieve a flawless makeup look, it's crucial to properly prepare your skin. Start off by cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing to make sure your skin is smooth. Of course, these are just the basics of any skincare routine so add any eye creams, serums, and toners that are needed for your skin type.

After you've completed the steps above, add a layer of sunscreen. Experts suggest using about a tablespoon for the face (or two tablespoons for face and body). Remember to include your ears, hairline, and neck. This will ensure your skin stays safe and protected. Now, you're ready to apply your makeup with confidence!

Wearing Makeup with SPF

It would be a disservice to you for us to not discuss beauty products with SPF incorporated in it. While some is always better than none at all, SPF in makeup is not a reliable source of sun protection. There is simply not enough plus, most only protect against UVB and not UVA rays which cause the highest rates of skin cancer. Learn more here.

The Best Options to Reapply Over Makeup

Ok, darlings! Know that you know how to properly apply sunscreen with makeup, let's talk reapplying. Reapplying your sun protection is equally as important as applying it in the first place. No matter what level of protection it offers, sunscreen is recommended to be reapplied every two hours. Using a sunscreen mist or powder are by far, the best methods or reapplying over makeup. These products will assure your lovely skin is well protected throughout the day. Look for a gentle, zinc-based physical sunscreen designed to be worn over makeup.

The Long and Short of It

Sunscreen is key to looking great and preventing premature aging, so it's a must in any skincare or makeup routine. We suggest implementing a sunscreen that's lightweight, then follow up with a primer before applying your foundation. This will help ensure that your makeup looks smooth and lasts all day, while still protecting your skin. Finally, don't forget to set your makeup with a light dusting of a SPF powder or spritz of a SPF facial mist for the perfect finishing touch!
