The Best SPF Products to Apply Over Makeup
The hiccup when it comes to wearing SPF is that it’s tricky to reapply throughout the day whilst wearing makeup – we need products that effortlessly layer on top of our makeup, without disturbing it, becoming cakey, or leaving that dreaded white cast. And yes you do need to reapply throughout the day, ideally every couple of hours, especially if you’re sitting outside, (especially now our beloved pub gardens are open) or directly by a window all day whilst WFH.
We’ve made it easy to stay protected with our pick of the best SPF mists that you can spray easily and liberally over makeup.
The Kate Somerville Uncomplikated SPF 50 Soft Focus Makeup Setting Spray is a classic and for good reason – the super fine mist provides a beautifully fine mist that helps reduce that middle of the day shine, and contains a generous SPF 50 to boot.
The Garnier Ambre Solaire Sensitive Hydrating Face Sun Cream Mist SPF 50 can be applied under or over makeup, leaves a satisfyingly invisible finish, and is enriched with hyaluronic acid - the super skincare ingredient that holds one thousand times its weight in water and is like a big drink of water for your skin, perfect for hot days.
The Pixi Sun Mist is a broad spectrum SPF 30 that combines sunflower and cucumber extract to hydrate and cool, making it a great option for sensitive or dry skin.
If you’re looking for a vegan option with added skincare benefits, look no further than The Body Shop Skin Defence Multi-Protection Face Mist SPF30 PA++. Enriched with marula oil, red algae extract and Vitamin C - all known for their brightening and conditioning properties. We love this anti-pollution and anti-dullness mist.
The Shiseido Sports Invisible Protective Mist SPF50 is perfect for workouts and outdoor activities, being non-sticky, non-greasy, instantly absorbing and non-comedogenic too.
