Sephora: Sunproof Makeup Essentials

Sephora , Level 2

So you’ve perfected your daily look, but maybe it’s not as sun-safe as you’d like. Or maybe figuring out how to incorporate sunscreen into your look without messing up a good thing is an ongoing struggle. Either way, here’s a quick guide to adding sun protection to any look while keeping things makeup-friendly. Read on to learn how you can protect your skin with SPF without compromising on your look of the day.

Prep your look

This is probably the easiest way to incorporate sun protection, and likely something you might already have been doing. Get your base ready with everyday-SPF sunscreens that can go on as a first step right after you’re done with your skincare regime. Go with at least SPF 30 for daily use, or step things up with a higher SPF if you anticipate an outdoorsy day ahead.

Perfect your look

Once your base is prepped, enter the handy helper that is SPF-infused makeup. From skin tints to foundations and lipsticks to lip glosses, there’s no end to the possibilities when sun protection meets makeup. Our advice? If there’s an SPF-infused option to any of your makeup staples, it simply makes good sense to go with that for the additional sun safety it offers.

Protect your look

Starting the day with a sun-safe look might be simple, but keeping that protection going while on the go is a touch trickier. Reapplication might be key, but who has the time to wash a whole look off to redo things in the middle of a busy day? Here’s where SPF toppers step into the spotlight. Invest in facial sprays, face powders and balms that pack SPF protection - they’re a quick and easy way to top up on your skin’s sun safety all day long without moving your look around.
