SPF Makeup

Trying to find makeup that plays well with sunscreen can be challenging.

We know that sunscreen-infused makeup isn’t sufficient daily protection since you don’t use the quantity required to reach the stated level of protection, but what works brilliantly, is to layer it over the top of your sunscreen. It gives added protection and there’s no worry that your foundation is going to interfere with your sunscreen product or vice versa.

Avène makes a fabulous tinted mineral SPF. It’s a creamy, glowy but not greasy, base that is fragrance-free  (bless you Avène), and water-resistant. Obviously, the white cast problem is non-existent and it gives great coverage. Easy to pop in your purse or to take on travels, the compact contains a sponge and a mirror. However, it can also be applied with your fingers, which is what I do. The downside: it only comes in two shades: Beige and Honey.

Sunscreen + Makeup = an Elegant Equation

    Such a good idea to layer on top of sunscreen for a little extra colour and still keeping your sun protection! 🙂

    Hope that your week has been a good one and you have a nice weekend ahead of you 🙂
