If you love wearing makeup, finding the right sunscreen can be complicated. For one, you have to find a product with a high enough SPF to protect your skin. Then, based on your skin type and beauty routine, it has to pair well with your foundation and concealer, leaving a dewy complexion that glistens in the sun—in contrast to burning in the sun.
Fortunately, celebrity makeup artists, who need to protect and perfect their clients’ complexions, have the answers, sharing the sunscreens that enhance the appearance of your skin, as well as keep UV rays from causing any damage.
Busy Phillips and Mandy Moore‘s makeup artist, Kindra Mann, told us, ““I love the Sisley tinted one. It’s my favorite for the face.”

“My go-to SPF product to use with makeup is the Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield,” Vanderpump Rules makeup artist Jared Lipscomb. “This primer softens the skin, blurs fine lines and creates a smooth base for makeup. I love to use this product on my clients before an outdoor red carpet, or sometimes even on myself when I want some UV protection and a flawless complexion.”

“My favorite SPF product to wear with makeup is Kari Gran 365 SPF 28,” Hollywood beauty pro, Jamie Dorman, told us. “I love that the sunscreen active ingredient is mineral-based, so it is less likely to irritate sensitive skin. It contains oils that the skin recognizes to use to restore the skin barrier which prevents moisture loss. It sinks into the skin easily and makes a great base under makeup.”
