The weather has already started to warm up which means summer is quickly approaching. And even though our summers were put on hold last year, we all have our fingers crossed that we’ll be seeing a vaccinated summer this year. We’re all preparing to spend the time we lost last year in the sun as many ways as possible this summer. At the beach, at a show, at a barbeque, or at a fair or amusement park your face is going to be exposed to the sun all summer. No matter what it is that you’re doing, you need to be wearing SPF to protect you from the sun’s pesky and harmful UV rays. Thankfully, there are a decent amount of makeups with sunscreen in them so you can still look your summer’s best while you soak up all that sun.
We know that sunscreen can sometimes seem heavy under a full face of makeup, so why not try some makeups with sunscreen in them already? We’ve compiled a list of some of the best makeups with sunscreen that are perfect for the summer and perfect for you to try. You should still put regular sunscreen on with these makeups for that second layer of protection, but with these makeup options, you’ll at least have a bit of protection to start you out. You’ll be glowing this summer, in the best way.
