I am wondering which you put on first in the summer, the makeup or the sunscreen. I usually put on makeup first then the sunscreen on top of it but it makes my face look shiny/greasy. I sometimes put on just makeup because I know it has spf but now i am nursing the second burn on my face. Any suggestions?

Well find a good company that makes a make-up with a spf built into it, I would tell you not to wear make up and just the sun screen if you are just laying out. I know Lancôme makes make up with spf built into it and you don't have to put any additional on.

I don't know how people manage to do this, succesfully. I used to put sunscreen on, then foundation (which I've pretty much quit wearing), but, when I would prespire, which is anytime I step outside in this disgusting heat, it runs into my eyes, and burns badly. Then my eye makeup is ruined also. Now, I just use a moisturizer with spf in it. It doesn't burn as badly when it melts off my face.

I use sun lotion first, let it soak into my skin then put make-up on top which also has UV protection.

I just use almay smart shade, my face stays pretty white during the summer, so much that I have to quit using it if I want some color.

I use Olay's moisturizer which contai SPF 30, then makeup. You have to read labels carefully. If I am going to the pool or doing yardwork, I skip the Olay and only use sunscreen.

Many moisturizers and foundations contain sunscreen, especially the 15-18 spf. If you want two separate products, make sure that you put the sunscreen on first. Let it set for about 10 minutes or sometimes even more (it is like a moisturizer so you need to let it set) and then apply your foundation. However, I would save your money and time and get an all in one.

If you just want a sunscreen and not makeup, then go with a 30 spf and liberally apply it about 20-30 minutes before going out in the sun.

Use the sunscreen and drop the makeup.

Sunscreen needs to go on bare skin and sink in 15-20 mins or so before it becomes effective. You also have to reapply every few hours, especially if sweaty. What SPF do you use? How often do you reapply?

Have you ever tried using a mineral makeup? That is easy to top over sunscreen and is something that is easy to reapply during the day.

Once you burn you are going to be more prone to burning for up to 8 weeks after the burn is gone. You should try to stay out of the sun or get a higher spf lotion at that time.
