    I always apply before my makeup. I then wait at least 15 minutes before adding makeup. This way I know the sunscreen has fully soaked into my skin. It also helps if you have a facial lotion with sunscreen already in it because then you can just apply when you wash your face.

    I always apply my sunscreen and wait 15 minute for it to soak into my skin.  Then I apply my makeup.

    You can always mix your sunscreen with your foundation in a separate container and only have to apply once.

    Apply before your makeup. Sometimes I mix the lotion in with my foundation, and wait until that dries to apply the rest of the makeup. Try an oil free kind that won't make your face break out under the makeup. You can also purchase makeup that already has SPF in it.

    I don't think you should wear make up and sunscreen. Just pick one or the other.

      Often women can wear a Moisturizer that contains an SPF of 15 or more.  I wear a Neutrogena that is 55 spf under my makeup that also contains a sun screen.

      Why do you need a moisturizer in the summer? It is hot enough already for you to sweat and moisturize your skin that way. My issue is too much moisture.

      It is a good idea to wear moisturizer every day. I used to not use moisturizer because it made me break out, especially in the summer. I finally found out that it was what was in the lotion. I have a hub about mineral oil that tells all about it.

    Definitely apply the sunscreen before putting on makeup. It is a good idea to apply sunscreen 15 minutes before going into the sun so that it has time to soak in and does not get rubbed off onto clothes and such. I hardly ever put makeup on top of sunscreen since my makeup has SPF in it. I usually do one or the other.

    Always apply sunscreen before make-up for better use. Wait for 10 to 15 mints after applying sunscreen and before make-up.
