3 Sunscreens That Won't Ruin Your Makeup
We all know the drill, put on sunscreen every day in the morning to protect our skin from the harmful rays of the sun. But how often do we actually follow this often heard advice? Sunscreen is sticky, smelly, and just no fun to wear. The worst part is the way it feels under makeup, and how it can ruin foundation with its shiny appearance! If you have been avoiding sunscreen on a daily basis because you're afraid of how it will work under your makeup, I have some good news for you. Skincare technology has advanced so much over the past decade, and gone are the days of overly thick face formulas that just don't sit well. Check out my favorites below to find out the best brands that will protect you from the sun, while still looking great on your face. I put together a few options, ranging from splurge worthy to budget-friendly, so there's an option for everyone!
Laura Mercier Daily Face Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 40 Sunscreen - $45
This ultra lightweight formula feels so airy on the skin, you'll never feel like you are wearing sunscreen. I first fell in love with this product back in the day when I worked for Laura Mercier, and still think it's just as fabulous as the day I found it. The consistency is water-like, and it wears with a matte finish, so you don't have to worry about your foundation routine being ruined by this. The formula is oil-free and oil-controlling for an added bonus!
Tarte Tarteguard 30 Sunscreen Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 30 - $32
Not only can you feel great about protecting your skin from the rays of the sun, but you'll also love the added benefits you'll get from ingredients like vitamins A, C, E, and maracuja. Worried about the telltale sunscreen scent? Don't! This silky formula has the fragrance of ocean's lily, so not only will it look great under makeup, but you'll also smell great too!
Neutrogena Pure & Free Liquid Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50 - $15
This liquid formulation is very lightweight, and effortlessly blends into the skin for a second-skin feel. This product also works really well for anyone with sensitive skin, as it is formulated without any added fragrances, and made with naturally derived ingredients. This ultra budget friendly sunscreen works so well under makeup, you'll hardly remember that you are wearing it. For overall value and effectiveness, this product definitely takes the cake!
