How to Properly Apply Sunscreen Under Make-Up. It's important to keep your face protected from the sun. Many make-up items come with UVA and UVB sunscreen in them, but it's still a good idea to apply sunscreen under your foundation make-up to protect your skin from burning.

Step 1

Wash your face as usual.

Step 2

Dry your face thoroughly.

Step 3

Apply sunscreen to your face in a thin, even coat. The average adult requires about 1/4 to 1/3 of a teaspoon to cover the face. Use at least an SPF 30, though sunscreens are available in 50 and 60.

Step 4

Let the sunscreen soak into your skin.

Step 5

Dab away any excess sunscreen with a tissue.

Step 6

Apply your foundation as normal. Foundation with an SPF can give you added protection.
