NewBeauty Editors' Picks The Best Makeup With SPF

Makeup is always a little bit better when it also packs in some SPF. These seven picks are editor-approved to do just that, while providing a punch of color.

Yolanda Yoh Bucher, Editor-in-Chief

Total Block SPF 65 is a powerful heavy duty sunscreen that does double duty as the perfect foundation for flawless skin. It covers up my freckles, and prevents my skin from developing new ones. What more could you ask for?” $19, dermstore.com

Elise Minton, Executive Beauty Editor

“The thought of wearing SPF around my eyes kind of freaks me out, but with bareMinerals 5-in-1 BB Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow in Barely Nude I don’t have to worry about it dripping into my eyes or causing some sort of reaction. A must for summer days, the color is sheer (so you can layer or wear it solo) and I never end up with sunburned eyelids.” $18, ulta.com

Liz Ritter, Executive Managing Editor

“This color isn’t even remotely close to my skin tone but I’ve found that Colorescience Loose Mineral Foundation Brush SPF 20 in Toast of the Town somehow manages to make the most perfect bronzed look that’s never sparkly or ruddy. It works really well for midday touchups where I would normally apply bronzer, and even on my arms and legs to give them some of that faked sun-kissed glow.” $62, colorescience.com

Brittany Burhop, Senior Editor

“Although SPF 15 isn’t the preferred level of protection by dermatologists, I love this bareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 because it’s a loose mineral foundation and it layers perfectly with my daily moisturizer, which also has SPF in it—the combo of the two gives me the total sun protection I need each day. Plus, it is super lightweight and easy to blend into skin for even coverage and a natural look.” $28, sephora.com

Leah Goldblatt, Editorial Assistant

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 in Sugar Nude Tinted has a long-lasting formula that keeps my lips feeling ultra-moisturized and smooth with a sheer touch of color.” $23, fresh.com

6 / 7

Anna Jimenez, Senior Multimedia Editor 

“The fact that Perricone MD No Blush Blush has a SPF of 30 is really just a bonus because I love the soft, subtle color it gives to the cheeks. When applied to the apples, it almost looks as if the color is shinning out through your skin. It’s really a beautiful and elegant look.” $35, perriconemd.com

Carolyn Hsu, Managing Web Editor

SkinMedica TotalDefense and Repair is a multitasker is a one-stop solution for lazy days at the beach. It’s a sunscreen, anti-aging treatment and makeup tint all in one and goes beyond just UVA and UVB protection to also address premature aging cause by infrared rays—that other pesky ray coming from the sun—so you can relax on your day off instead of worry about skin damage. And the one feature that makes this the perfect beach bag product? A universally flattering tint that helps cover imperfections and leave skin looking radiant and smooth.” $65, skinmedica.com
