Protecting your skin with a layer of SPF is essential on any day of the week, no matter what time of year it is. But for those who might forget from time to time, some of the best SPF makeup products work to protect you from the sun while enhancing your features.
“Most makeup that has SPF includes an average SPF 15 protection," Andrea Tiller, a celebrity makeup artist, notes. "In this case, when prepping the skin, I always make sure that I use a moisturizer first to hydrate the skin and then apply a good sunscreen [with a minimum of SPF 30] on top for ultimate protection. After that’s done, I then go in with the makeup products and any added SPF that they may have."
And if you have to reapply throughout the day, don't fret — there are ways to protect your skin without disturbing your finished results. Makeup artist Emily Cheng, who "never leaves the house without sunscreen," has a special tip: "Be sure to keep a powder version [of sunscreen] with you for touch-ups,” she says. "I'm prone to sun spots, so this is a must for me."
