With Summer is full swing – and the sun at its strongest – there is no shortage of warnings about protecting your skin with sunscreen before venturing outdoors. But what do you do when your outdoor activity is a glam event… say a garden wedding? You want to look your best, but the thought of slathering your face with sunscreen does not seem appealing – try using makeup with sunscreen for an extra layer of protection.
Here are some of the latest products to add SPF and other age-defying ingredients to their formulations to protect you from harmful UV rays, while helping you look your best:
Powder: Try Jane Iredale Powder-Me SPF 30 Dry Sunscreen. This can be used on the body and face for UVB/UVA SPF 30 protection. It contains titanium dioxide and a natural clay that contains minerals to nourish and calm the skin. What’s more, this water resistant powder doubles as a bronzer – and it even controls shine!
Blush: CoverGirl™and Olay Regenerist™ have teamed up on this one. Simply Ageless Sculpting Blush SPF 22 is a one touch creamy blush with Olay Regenerist Serum to give you an instantly healthy-looking, youthful glow. This skin-protecting blush glides evenly over cheekbones and won’t clog pores.
Eye Shadow: Neutrogena’s Nourishing Eye Quad shadow gives eyes a beautifully smooth, vibrant look. Nutrient-infused color illuminates and defines eyes while SPF 15 protects eyelids. Crease and fade proof for beautiful wear available in perfectly coordinated quad palettes. Vitamins, silk, and soy condition skin so it’s smoother and healthier.
Lips: Nivea Fruity Lip Care SPF 10 is a tinted lip balm with almond oil and SPF 10 to ensure your lips are protected.
Or for a more glamorous look, try Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté with SPF 15 and hyaluronic acid to keep lips plump and protected.
Nails: Protect your manicure with Orly’s Sunscreen for Nails. This UV protecting top coat prevents nail lacquer from fading or yellowing.
