The 3 top SPFs to wear under your makeup

SPFs have come on in leaps and bounds, but there is always the chance that they can eff up your carefully applied makeup. Not these.

When it comes to summer and sunshine, it's beyond important to get yourself a good SPF. I'm not just talking about when you go on holidays for one or two weeks throughout the year; it's important to find one you love that's Factor 30 or above and use it daily. The SPF in your foundation is not strong enough.

The main reason we don't tend to use SPF under our makeup is usually because the consistency can be either too oily or chalky. I've been doing my research and here are my three favourite SPFs to wear on a daily basis.

  • Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Cream SPF 50 for Face €36.75


This one is best for a drier skin type but it's water resistant which is excellent of you live in rainy Ireland or play a lot of sports. It's non-comedogenic, not chalky and protects against UVA and UVB rays. True to their brand, Shiseido always do skin care well.

  • La Roche-Posey Anthelois 50 


This is an excellent choice in suncream. It protects against UV rays, camouflages pores, mattifies, and tones down redness, so your skin looks pretty much flawless. Plus, it's clear so it won't leave that chalky film and the best part is that it doesn't make you break out.

  • Bioderma Photoderm Max 50 €14.50


This gorgeous formula is excellent for those of you with sensitivities as it's hypoallergenic, paraben free, non-comedogenic, non-chalky and with cellular bio protection with essentially protects against the harsh UVA and UVB rays.
