SPF Makeup Is Summer's Best Beauty Shortcut

There's always room for improvement in life, whether that's finding the time to exercise, not texting (or tweeting) when you're on your fourth shot of tequila, or maybe even just following the cardinal rule of drinking more water. When it comes to our beauty routine, there's always one thing that most of us could be better at: remembering to wear sun protection.

Fortunately, our favorite brands keep finding ways to make life a little easier, like putting SPF in moisturizer so we never leave the house unprotected. Some might call it lazy, but we call it practical — especially when it's as simple as piling it on with SPF-infused makeup, too. It's not a replacement for your regular sunscreen, of course, but the more the merrier when it comes to sun protection.


With the warm weather finally here (even though SPF should be worn 365 days a year), it’s the perfect time to start loading up on sun protection every way we can. The best makeup products with SPF, ahead...
