How to Apply Sunscreen While Wearing Makeup

Your foundation may have SPF but thinking that’s enough for you to protect your skin from the harsh sun may be a mistake. Sunscreens are a must, irrespective of whether you wear makeup or not. Now, how to wear sunscreen with makeup? Here are the deets.

Applying Sunscreen before makeup:

1. Prep Your Skin

Apply sunscreen on your face and neck. Massage well. Re-apply the sunscreen on the areas that are most exposed to the sun, like your forehead, around hairline, sides of the cheeks, and jawline.

2. Apply Primer

Applying primer is optional. In case you want to apply it, you need to do that in the correct way – Always apply sunscreen first and then the primer. If it’s the other way, you’ll mess up your makeup.

3. Use Tinted Moisturizer with SPF

For sensitive skin, use a tinted moisturizer with SPF. You can also apply foundation with a BB cream.

4. Apply Foundation

Apply foundation all over your face and neck and blend well. Use the other makeup products to complete your makeup.

5. Finish Your Look With A Setting Spray

While setting sprays are for keeping your makeup intact you can also use it for blending your foundation.

Applying Sunscreen after Makeup

Here are three ways to apply sunscreen over your makeup:

1. Brush Some Powder over Makeup

Use a powder sunscreen, if you do not wish to smudge your makeup. Take a little powder sunscreen on a big makeup brush and powder all over your face and neck. They are good for humid days and control facial oil.

2. Spray Sunscreen

A spray sunscreen is the most convenient option. Spray it gently all over your face and do not touch your face until it dries. Apply some loose power on it later.
