Well that was quite a heatwave we had over the weekend wasn’t it? Now that summer has decided to show its face we think it’s time to look into makeup products with SPF. We know that we are supposed to wear sun cream every single day, however, most of us are guilty of forgetting to apply it on occasion, especially when we’re trying to get ready in the morning. There is a lot to be done in a short amount of time and that bottle of sun cream always seems to get hidden among your foundations, lipsticks and other skincare creams. Makeup with SPF isn’t meant to replace your regular sun cream, but at least if you are using a product, it will still provide you with a bit of sun protection. And if you layer your makeup with SPF on top of your sun cream, it’s even better. Here are 10 makeup products with SPF you need in the warmer weather.
