Spending a long day out and about poses a big beauty challenge: How do you ensure your skin is well protected from the blazing sun without having to compromise on makeup?
High-protection sunscreens have the bad reputation of being uncomfortable to wear – they tend to feel oily and don’t smell very pleasing – especially when worn in Singapore’s humid climate. (You can almost feel your makeup melting off from the short walk to your nearest MRT.) But we’ve come a long way since the days of slathering thick white sunscreens on our faces, wondering when they’d ever absorb.
Sunscreens feel weightless on the skin these days; they help to control oil and some even dry to a humidity-proof powdery finish. Those that fall under the new skincare and makeup hybrid category also work to fight UV damage while doubling up as a colour corrective base to the complexion, cutting down steps in your makeup routine.
