5 Sunscreens You Can Apply Over MakeupMay 04, 2022
Best On-the-Go SPF Powder
For an airbrushed appearance and sun protection all in one, this mineral powder — with a built-in brush — is the way to go. The sheer powder helps blur and camouflage imperfections while also protecting your skin with SPF 19.
Best Foundation With SPF
Get a golden hour glow and shield your skin from the sun at the same time when you use this SPF 40-infused CC cream. The medium coverage formula is 90% skincare, so it works overtime to keep your skin hydrated, glowing and protected. Plus, it’s lightweight enough that you can dab it on throughout the day without experiencing any cakiness.
Best Compact With SPF
We all could use a little midday touch up here and there, so why not do it with a compact formulated with SPF? This ultra-blendable formula with SPF 17 provides you with weightless, natural coverage that melts into your existing foundation.
Best Setting Spray With SPF
If powders aren’t your thing, try a makeup setting spray with SPF. This aloe vera-infused face mist contains SPF 30 to protect you from the sun and leaves a matte finish to reduce shine.
Best Loose Powder With SPF
When you need to powder your T-zone to beat the afternoon shine, reach for a translucent powder with SPF. We like this one from ILIA because it’s formulated with skin-loving ingredients like aloe leaf to soften the skin and doesn’t look cakey.
