According to Krista Torres' article, You Need 15 Pumps Of Foundation For The SPF In It To Be Effective (buzzfeed.com), that's A LOT of foundation to get enough face protection from the sun.
How would it look on your face if you put on 15 pumps of foundation? Scary. . . possibly, right? Your face may end up looking cakey, blotchy, and worse off.
Well, what if there’s more than just one step to putting on sunscreen?
To be honest, some people think they only need to put one to two layers of sunblock to protect their skin from UVA/UVB and HEV (blue light) rays. NOPE! That is not the case. Even if you put on sunscreen in the morning, every couple of hours, you’ll have to reapply! UGH! Just imagine putting on makeup and the sunscreen on top of it.
According to the 10-step Korean skincare routine, you’ll put on sunscreen in step 10.
At K-Beauty Makeup, we suggest how-to put on more layers of SPF protection for your face.
Some of us at K-Beauty Makeup apply more than one layer of sunscreen prior to putting on makeup. We sure do!
Consider trying our method when layering SPF protection using K-Beauty skincare products. Below are 9-11 layers of SPF products you can put on your skin instead of 15 pumps of foundation! (There’s plenty of other methods as well).
Note: When you place a product on your face, tap/dab/pat it onto your face.
