How To Apply Sunscreen While Wearing Makeup?

Let’s get straight to the point. I know that your foundation has SPF, but if you think that has got you covered, you are wrong. In this article, we want to talk about How To Apply Sunscreen While Wearing Makeup? But the problem is here that you use sunscreen will it look too cakey? Or make your face ugly and break out?


Why SPF so important? And How does it work?

Sunscreens can protect our skin from UV rays.  UV rays can penetrate deep into your skin and cause age spots, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation, while UVB rays give you sunburn and even cause skin cancer.


In any case, some UV rays are still going to get through the sunscreen and reach your skin, so the SPF number is an indicator of how long it might take for your skin to turn red under the sun. In other words, a sunscreen with SPF 15 will prevent your skin from becoming red or getting tanned for about 15 times longer than usual.

Ok now we want to answer our big question, How To Apply Sunscreen While Wearing Makeup?


If you want your sunscreen to work under makeup, always buy a sunscreen that is specifically formulated for facial skin. These sunscreens are more lightweight than traditional sunscreens and will not make your skin look cakey. Also, if you are applying a sunscreen, make sure use a primer before.





Choosing a sunscreen that has at least SPF 30 and any of these ingredients:

Zinc oxide

Titanium dioxide


Your cosmetics can’t protect your skin from rays, because it comes off easily. Also using sunscreen under your makeup is a better base for your makeup.


Prepare your skin

Before you start to makeup, apply the sunscreen on your face and neck and massage well.

Never start rubbing sunscreen from the middle of your face, if you start from the middle you may miss out the major areas like hairline or sides of your cheek.

This step it depends on you. You can skip this step but if you apply primer and use sunscreen you need to do it in a correct way.


Moisturizer and foundation

You can also use a moisturizer with SPF or apply a heavy foundation with a lightweight formula. But if you are not using moisturizer apply foundation all over your face and neck. Well, you can finish your make up with setting spray to keep your makeup.

We hope in this article that about How To Apply Sunscreen While Wearing Makeup is so helpful for you and use this method on your routine makeup.
