Mastering SPF Layering, Makeup, and Reapplication



You’re in front of your vanity, meticulously crafting your makeup look for the day ahead. But did you know that your sun protection routine should be just as carefully curated? Beyond your morning sunscreen application, mastering SPF layering, and understanding the nuances of makeup with SPF are essential for keeping your skin safe and flawless under the sun’s rays. Let’s uncover the secrets to a sun-kissed glow without the sun damage!

Layering Tips

For maximum protection, apply Grail’s Daily SPF 50++++ sunscreen before makeup, allowing it to set for a few minutes before starting your makeup routine. This creates a barrier that shields your skin from UV rays and helps makeup adhere better throughout the day.

SPF in Makeup

While some makeup products offer SPF, it’s often not enough for full protection, so using a separate sunscreen with a higher SPF is recommended. This ensures adequate coverage and reduces the risk of sun damage, especially during prolonged sun exposure.

Reapplication Strategies

To reapply sunscreen over makeup, consider using a setting spray with SPF or a mineral powder sunscreen for easy touch-ups without smudging your makeup. These products help maintain sun protection without disrupting your makeup look, keeping your skin safe and flawless throughout the day.
