Make-Up With SPF


Sometimes we can forget to apply our sun cream, so having a foundation or primer that contains a bit of sun protection is better than nothing. Whilst makeup with SPF isn’t a replacement for your daily sunscreen, every little bit of extra protection helps. Here are some brilliant products that contain bonus sun protection:

Bobbi Brown Extra SPF 25 Tinted Moisturising Balm This lightweight moisturiser is similar to a tinted moisturizer. The ultra-rich formula provides a hint of coverage for dry skin and contains SPF 25, making it perfect for balmy summer days. It also comes in eight shades, so you’re guaranteed to find a perfect match.

Priced at £35.00

Nars Pure Sheer Lipstick SPF 15 A lip product with a hint of colour and sun protection? Yes, please. This lip treatment contains wild mango butter and Vitamin E to nourish chapped lips and comes in three versatile wear everyday shades.

Priced at £18.50

Estee Lauder Double Wear All Day Glow BB Moisture Makeup SPF 30 If you haven’t jumped on the BB Cream bandwagon, summer is the perfect time to do so. This oil-free version brightens skin and delivers a very dose of SPF 30. Unlike the regular light-medium-dark varieties, this BB Cream comes in eight different shades.

MAC Prep + Prime Face Protect SPF 50 This primer offers enough SPF protection to rival most good sun creams. Unlike chalky sunscreens, this dries to an invisible finish and won’t change the texture of your makeup. If that wasn’t good enough, it is formulated with an oil-absorbing powder that will keep you shine free, without the need for blotting sheets every few hours.

Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow! Brightening Oil-Free Makeup SPF 25 If the name doesn’t explain it all, let me clarify: This liquid makeup offers broad spectrum factor 25 coverage. The Oxygen Wow Hydrating Complex helps prevent signs of ageing by boosting cellular respiration (clearly a good thing).

Rimmel London Natural Bronzer SPF 15 If you’re looking for a bronzed goddess glow that will stay put through sweat and swimming, this one is waterproof. It also comes in three different shades and contains SPF 15. What are you waiting for? Dive in.

Priced at £5.99

Clinique Almost Powder Makeup SPF 15 If you prefer a mattifying powder foundation, as opposed to its liquid counterpart, this Clinique version provides sheer coverage and contains SPF 15. The portable formula makes on-the-go touchups easy though you probably won’t need them.

Now that you know what products have a shot of SPF you can go out feeling secure that you’re doubly protected against the sun’s harmful rays.
