5 Sunscreens That’ll Help Set Makeup

You have to set your makeup with something, especially during the hot summer months, so why not kill two birds with one product, and pick a setting spray or powder with SPF baked right into the formula? Ahead, find five sunscreens that will help you set your makeup all while protecting you from the sun.

[Editor’s Note: Spending time in the sun increases your risk of skin cancer and early skin aging. To decrease this risk, you should also regularly use a sunscreen with broad-spectrum SPF 15 or higher and other sun protection measures including: limiting time in the sun, especially from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and wearing long-sleeve shirts, pants, hats and sunglasses.]

La Roche-Posay Anthelios 60 Ultra Light Sunscreen Shield Spray

Trade in your usual setting spray for the La Roche-Posay Anthelios Sunscreen Spray. This ultra-light sunscreen formula has broad-spectrum SPF 60, protects from UVA/UVB rays and even has antioxidants. Even better, it absorbs quickly into the skin and will leave you with a non-greasy finish, whether you have a full beat or just wearing some tinted moisturizer.

IT Cosmetics CC+ Perfecting Powder SPF 50

If you prefer a setting powder finish, look no further than the IT Cosmetics CC+ Perfecting Powder. This formula comes in six shades and contains physical sunscreen with SPF 50+ and makes re-applying throughout the day super easy — all you need is a brush!

Peter Thomas Roth Instant Mineral Sunscreen Powder SPF 45

Another powder favorite is this Instant Mineral Sunscreen Powder. With SPF 45, it suits all skin types, whether you’re oily, combination, dry or sensitive — and comes with an enclosed brush applicator in the package for less mess.

Coola Sport SPF 50 Sunscreen Spray

For another “setting” mist that will work nicely right over beach makeup, try the Coola Sport Sunscreen Spray. This spray comes in both a fragrance-free formula or a guava-mango scent, and is grease-free.

Sol de Janeiro My Sol Stick

In between reapplying lipstick (or even over top), My Sol Stick is the on-the-go sunscreen balm that provides SPF 50 and major moisture. It leaves behind a glowy, buttery finish — not to mention an addicting scent.
