Sunscreen makeup

I love my sunscreen. My skin improve a lot since I started to use a sunscreen seriously. And a major issue with makeup is that…. Will it affect my sunscreen underneath ?

I have no idea of that nor do I able to find much information on the Internet .

I tested my makeup and at the end of the day, my foundation and blushes were still there. So I assumed the sunscreen was still there.

Anyway, this is how I apply blush when I just use sunscreen alone, I mixed my bare minerals blush with my sunscreen, such that it becomes liquid blush. In this way, when I layer the blush on top, it won’t affect me from reapply my sunscreen later on as they are of the same texture.

Skinceuticals Sheer Physical UV Defense SPF 50

Looking back at 1-2 years ago, I think the major change in my skin care routine was the consistent use of sunscreen, particularly Skinsceuticals sheer physical UV defense SPF 50. Since I started to use this 1+ years ago, I don’t believe in anyone who claim their sunscreen / product is better than what I am using.

As many of you already know, photoaging is the main reason why our skin aged. This thing, essentially, block out all of the sunlight ( not just screen out, it blocks). And it is very light and has long-staying power. I didn’t reapply it during the day for most of the time, but the change on my skin is still significant.

This is a sheer/clear version of the nude-colored Physical Fusion sunscreen I talked about few days ago.

Since using it, my skin become finer and fairer. This is always on my stock-up list. Highly recommended.

Skinceuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50 – Sunscreen + Foundation ?

Have you ever thought of how to reapply sunscreen after you have makeup on? I think about this lately.

I think the best you can do is to get a good sunscreen that is light-weighted enough and can stay on your skin for a longer time.

Sunscreen forms a major part of my skincare routine. Since I used sunscreen two years ago, I see significant improvement in my skin texture. It is even finer than my skin when I was still a teenager.

I use Skinceuticals SPF 50 sunscreen – it is watery in consistency , really light-weighted, non-greasy – that means it can stay on your skin for a long time (may be the whole day) unless you go swimming or do sports.

And the good news is, they have a colored version lately. It is a universal color and it will adjust its color according to the wearer’s skin tone.

It’s a very good substitute for foundation/tinted moisturizer if I go for something sheer and natural-looking for everyday use.

It work best if you allow some time for your moisturizer to be absorbed before applying the sunscreen. It quickly dry up and stay there for long. It is better than the transparent version when I want to have some bronzer on my face. ( because my skin is pink-toned and too light-colored for bronzer to look natural on my bare face )
