Here's How You Can Wear Your Makeup & Have Sun Protection, Too
Nothing is worse that a sunburn during the summertime, and protecting your face (and basically your entire body) is key if you're going to avoid any lobster-like redness. Wearing makeup and still getting enough SPF protection can be tricky, but that’s where the Labels and Lacquer girls come in.
You can find lots of makeup products that contain SPF, but you may have to look hard for them. Even if you have to shop higher end makeup— it’s worth it for the added skin protection, you know?
While you may be able to snag a foundation with an SPF of 30, you want to be careful with what types of makeup have sunblock in them because you may not apply foundation ALL over your face in the same way that you would a normal sunscreen lotion.
So, you may want to try and find primers and non-tinted products to use as a base for your makeup. Then, you can layer on that SPF 30 foundation as little or as much as you’d like.
Here are a few facial products packed with SPF that’ll help you maintain flawless skin all summer long!
1. Facial Sunscreen
TarteGuard Facial Sunscreen, $32, Tarte Cosmetics
You could always just start with a sunscreen that's made especially for the face before applying any makeup. One product with SPF in it is all you need, so you could really stop with this, if you wanted to.
2. Moisturizer With SPF

Something that's going to moisturize and protect your skin all-in-one? Now, that's a win-win.
