I'm usually pretty good about wearing a daily moisturizer with SPF, but over Memorial Day weekend I skipped that important skincare step and got so burnt that I could now pass as Elmo's cousin. In order to ensure that doesn't happen again, I'm snagging some of the best SPF makeup products on the market to add another protective step to my daily routine. While they certainly won't replace my sunscreen (which I will be wearing every day from here on out!), they'll add a second line of defense against summer's strong rays — when it comes to keeping your skin healthy and happy, more is more!
Tinted moisturizers, foundations, and CC creams with SPF aren't necessarily anything new, but they've come a really long way over the past handful of years. Gone are the days when wearing any of the aforementioned products meant feeling like your complexion was caked with goo. Formulas are light and effective, so why wouldn't you want to try out an item that works double duty? Products that do feel more innovative include setting powder, lip tint, and even eyeshadow with SPF, proving just how paramount sun protection has become within the makeup industry. Check out some of the coolest picks below and work them into your daily beauty practice so you can avoid resembling a certain Muppet.
