Can anyone recommend a foundation to wear on top of sunscreen that lasts? I have hyperpigmentation on my face so I have to wear factor 50 sunscreen all year. I would like a foundation that lasts in top of the sunscreen and doesn't make my skin look too oily if that's possible.

Estée Lauder double wear you won't look back, it's amazing and I've used it for years!

Or maybe try an SPF foundation. Heliocare SPF 50 foundation is amazing, very moisturising, coverage is excellent. And I've tried the lot! X

What skin type are you? I have oily skin and the longest lasting foundations on me are Clarins everlasting (lovely soft and natural finish), Dior forever (bit more coverage I think), and YSL inkfusion (light great for summer and very good coverage too)

After you've put your foundation on give your face a light dusting of Nars Light Reflecting powder. It will keep you shine free all day. Magical stuff.

I thought that the sunscreen was supposed to go on after the make up. Did I get that wrong! I'm now to the whole multi stage high tech skin care routine thing.
I'm using lrp factor 50 anthelios and I'm very happy with it. If been putting it on after cc creme but before powder.

But...but.....but.....if you put your sunscreen on over your CC cream you'll just end up wiping your makeup off.

Sunscreen definitely before makeup.

Another one for EL double wear. Came back to it yesterday after a fling with other foundations and it lasts immaculately on my oily skin right up until the evening.

Other than that, let your suncream really sink in properly before putting foundation on top of it, go make a coffee or something. Otherwise it'll slip off quicker.

suncream OVER foundation?!?! shockshockshock

Lone dissenter. I put it on under foundation and then if I'm out in the sun for a while will reapply over my foundation. Sun cream isn't a once a day application thing (unless you are using Ultrasun et al).

Try Biore sunscreen. Anything will go on easily over that. Was recommended on mn. Brilliant stuff, no grease, dries instantly.

I have oily skin, it is ultrasun that I use but it makes my skin more oily and I need some make up to lessen my hyperpigmentation which I'm very self conscious of.

In our climate applying sunscreen once a day to the face is fine for 99% of the year. If I'm on holiday somewhere hot I don't bother with makeup so I can reapply suncream to my face throughout the day. I don't understand how you can put suncream over your foundation without rubbing all your makeup off?

Clinique City Block spf 40 is marketed as a primer as well and is for under make up. There is not much difference between 40 and 50, dermos say.
I use it under make up but on really hot days and if going outside a lot, I layer it over foundation later in the day and top with a bit of powder blusher. It's tinted so looks a bit like foundation anyway.

Sunscreen applied at 8am is not going to do the job that well by 3pm same as if it was on your body.

Sunflower I use SPF year round for the same reasons. Have you tried the ultrasun spf30? I found it much much better than the the spf50

It doesn't rub my make up off. It looks fine. I need to reapply it in the afternoon as I'm usually outside for an extended period later in the day so its going over the makeup at some point anyway.

Estee Lauder double wear is amazing.

It makes my face look pretty bloody flawless which is a hard thing to do.

I have got loads of facial sunscreens now obsessed and waiting for my Biroe to arrive. I love the Estee Lauder SPF 50 but for that price and the small bottle I won't buy it again. I have to use a lot as I am using retin.

I went to the beach at the weekend with my foundation on and a big floppy hat. I was so paranoid that I ended up re-applying SPF on top of my foundation and I looked a hideous mess grin

Shop - is ultrasun 30 sufficient protection for hyperpigmentation? Is is less oily than the factor 50. I have just changed from ultrasun factor 50 to ultrasun factor 50 antipigmentation and it is too greasy it's horrid it must sits on top of my skin and makeup doesn't seem to sit on it right.

If you change to Biore you will have factor 50 and something you can apply foundation easily over. It's sinks in extremely quickly and is not oily or creamy. It's leagues above any other sunscreen.
