How To Apply Sunscreen With Makeup On Without Smudging It

Sunscreen is an essential and non-negotiable part of any and every skincare routine. Even when you’re applying makeup, it’s essential to prep your skin well and ensure that your skin is protected from the sun’s harmful UV rays. To be precise, you should apply sunscreen after moisturiser and before applying makeup. However, we also know that pairing the two, i.e. your sunscreen with other makeup products, can sometimes be tricky. While it’s still easier to apply sunscreen before makeup, reapplying it over makeup can be a daunting task. Wondering, how to apply sunscreen with makeup on? Well, you have come to the right place! In this article, we’ll share with you how to reapply sunscreen over makeup without smudging the base or contour. We’re here to help solve this query for you. So, read on as we discuss how to apply sunscreen with makeup on.

How to apply sunscreen with makeup on?

Usually, sunscreen is applied before wearing makeup. However, for optimal protection from the sun, it should be re-applied every two to three hours. Wondering how to apply sunscreen over makeup? Let’s find out! Trust us, all you will need are a few simple techniques and the right products, and you can easily apply sunscreen over makeup.

• How to reapply powered sunscreen over makeup

A powder sunscreen should be your go-to product for sun protection. It is one of the easiest ways to apply sunscreen over makeup.

How to apply - Take a brush and gently swipe the powdered SPF all over your face. Usually, powdered sunscreens are water-resistant and also have oil-control properties.

• How to reapply serum sunscreen over makeup

You should invest in a lightweight sunscreen formula to make the reapplication of sunscreen over makeup easier without making your face look cakey. You can check out the L’Oréal Paris UV Defender Serum Protector range (which is available in varied skin types).

For instance, if you have oily skin, we recommend using the L’Oréal Paris UV Defender Serum Protector Sunscreen Matte and Fresh, as it has oil and sebum control properties and leaves a matte finish even during hot and humid climate. Similarly, if you have a dry skin type, use the L'Oréal Paris UV Defender Serum Protector Sunscreen Moist and Fresh that is enriched with hyaluronic acid and gives ultimate sun protection. It comes with a powerful combination of SPF 50+ PA++++ broad spectrum protection against UV rays. If you have a dull skin type, go for the LOréal Paris UV Defender Serum Protector Sunscreen Bright and Clear, which has a combination of SPF 50+ PA++++ broad spectrum protection against UVA and UVB rays. It is a lightweight, non-greasy formula enriched with niacinamide and offers instant brightening. Those with uneven skin tone can use L’Oréal Paris UV Defender Serum Protector Sunscreen Correct and Protect.

How to apply - Simply dab the beauty blender or cushion pad with this sunscreen onto your face gently. Avoid using excessive amounts of product to avoid smudging your makeup.

• How to reapply spray sunscreen over makeup

Spray sunscreens are an easy and convenient way to reapply sunscreen over makeup. Choose a sunscreen mist that has been specially designed for facial use.

How to apply - Hold the bottle at least six inches away from your face and spritz lightly with your eyes and lips closed. Allow the mist to rest for a few seconds on your skin before gently patting it in with a clean makeup sponge. This method ensures that your makeup is evenly distributed without smearing or smudging.

Tips on how to apply sunscreen with makeup on

Keep in mind the following tips to get optimal sun protection:

• Use blotting paper to eliminate excess oil on your face before reapplying sunscreen over makeup. Don’t rub. Simply, press the blotting sheet to soak oil from your face.

• If you are using spray sunscreen, don’t touch your face until the product has dried. If you touch you face while the product is damp, you might accidentally scrape off makeup on some of the spots of your face.

• Use tinted sunscreens as they can help you get both sun protection benefits as well as an even-toned skin.

Tips on how to apply sunscreen on face before makeup

Now that you know how to reapply sunscreen over makeup, let us enlighten you on how to apply sunscreen on face before applying makeup.

Note: Never step outdoors without applying sunscreen under your makeup.

• Cleanse your face with a suitable cleanser. Follow it with applying face essence, serum, eye serum, and moisturiser. Now, move on to apply sunscreen. Take the required amount of sunscreen and gently massage it into the skin until it is thoroughly blended.

Wondering how much sunscreen should you apply on your face? It is recommended to use 0.4 ounces (approx. 11 grams sunscreen) on the face. Alternately, you can pour enough sunscreen on three of your fingers and that is the amount you need. Now, gently massage until the product is completely absorbed into the skin and you’re good to go.

With this, our guide on how to apply sunscreen on the face comes to an end. Prevent pre-mature skin ageing, sunburn, sun tan, and other sun-induced damages by reapplying sunscreen every 2-3 hours even when you are wearing makeup.
