10 Best Sunscreens To Wear Under Makeup | Clozette
Summer is not the only time to pack on your skin protection. No matter what season it is, heading outdoors or even just staying indoors can cause some serious UV damage to your skin without you knowing it. Plus, if you add putting on makeup on a daily basis, your skin is up for some serious issues.

More often than not, sunscreen can feel tacky under makeup. Ahead, cleo.com.sg reveals a definitive list that gives the right protection without getting in the way of your makeup routine.

Shiseido White Lucent All Day Brightener

On the lookout for a sunscreen that can also act as an illuminating primer? This one’s a great pick. It works to reduce dark spots and uneven skin tone, so you’re sure to have your skin protected and repaired even underneath your foundation.

Sunplay Skin Aqua Sarafit UV Milk & Essence

Hate the sticky feel of sunscreen? This one’s for you! Its smooth, glide-on texture leaves the skin feeling soft and lightweight, leaving a smooth and moisturised base for your makeup products.

Kiehl's Ultra Light Daily UV Defense

If you are not a fan of scented sunscreens or have sensitive skin, reach out for this. Kiehl’s newly improved oil-free and fragrance-free formula gives extended protection and care to your skin against UV rays. It also soothes skin underneath your makeup.

The subject of juggling multiple roles is no longer uncommon. Today, the modern woman takes on various identities or responsibilities by choice, not by force, because of her desire for “more” – whether it is to enrich or to empower herself.

Take Singaporean digital influencer, Francesca Tan, for instance. The multiple-role woman divides her time between a modelling and a real estate career. One thing’s for sure though, this modern woman may be constantly on the go, but she never forgets to take care of herself.

Watch the video above as Francesca takes us through a day in her hectic life. Plus: find out how you can win a set of SK-II GenOptics Aura Essence for yourself!

On being a modern woman…

“It is so tiring. But I just have to do it because I don’t want to stop modelling at all. Modelling was good, but I wanted something more. I wanted to try something different and step out of my comfort zone. I guess you can call this changing my destiny! I wanted to push myself to do something that I’ve never thought of doing, like real estate. At the same time, I wanted something that’s flexible so I can manage my time between photo shoots and real estate.”

On taking care of herself beauty-wise…

“Having a beauty routine is a habit to me. I have a skincare routine that I follow everyday. To me, it’s neither an extra step nor does it take any extra effort at all. Just because I’m always on-the-go does not mean I should sacrifice my well-being in any way!”

On her beauty essentials…

“Cleanse, tone, moisturise – you just can’t miss these three steps. On top of that, to combat skin dullness, I need my eye cream, SK-II GenOptics Aura Essence and the iconic Facial Treatment Essence.

The SK-II GenOptics Aura Essence helps with targeting spots and really brightens up my skin so it appears more radiant – especially important when I’m often out and about. It’s rich and moisturising at the same, plus it absorbs right into my skin very quickly.

I also use the Facial Treatment Essence and I recently got acquainted with the spray format. It’s so convenient and a great pick-me-up in between shoots and client meetings.

For makeup, it’s definitely going to be my trusty concealer and brow pencil! I’m really into highlighting recently as well and I just want to add some highlights everywhere. With its spot treatment and brightening power, the GenOptics Aura Essence really works to enhance my highlights even more. A huge bonus is that it smells heavenly!”

Here at Clozette, we love learning about new beauty products, upcoming fashion releases and cool new things that are meant to improve our lifestyles. So it’s not unusual that we’ve already set our sights on and have created a list of things we want to get our hands on. 

With that, we’d like to introduce you to a new series, #ClozetteCovets, where we share what goodies we are lusting over and would love to nab. This month, we're all about freshness. Take a look at our picks.


Creative Director

"I'm setting my eyes on the new stacking rings from the Pandora spring collection. I'm a ring lover so I cannot wait to get them on my fingers! Apart from that, I am also quite enamoured with the side detailing of the collection. I also like that some of them are pastel-hued while others are a bit more bold, making them perfect for mixing and matching. The rings are also versatile in such a way that you can choose to show the band part or the crystal part depending on the look you're going for. I also appreciate that they are modern-looking as I don't like overly feminine, sweet floral accessories." 



"This COS 10 Collection cotton poplin shirt dress is part of the 10-piece capsule collection created for the 10th anniversary of COS, one of my favourite shopping boutiques! Designed with Japanese influences in mind, this is a staple piece with a twist – its versatile fabric belt lets you style up in various ways. Definitely one for keeps!"



"Fun fact: I never leave the house without a pen and notebook (or a piece of paper I can scribble on). It’s a habit I formed when I was younger and very eager to document every moment of my life. While I no longer have the urge to write down everything that happened in my day, bringing a pen and notebook does come in handy when I need to take note of things. So, yes, a pen is a must! And you can just imagine how excited I was when I learned about the new Pilot Juice Up pens. I’m already set on getting one… or two… or all twenty-two!"


Features Writer and Campaign Executive

"For as long as I can remember, I've always been obsessed with lip care. I have really chapped lips and I look pale and sickly with them bare, so lipsticks are always my go-to. That's why my top pick for this month is By Terry Baume's De Rose Lip Care, which has highly concentrated shea butter, essential Rose wax, ceramides, vitamin E and hyaluronic acid spheres that promise moisture and protection for my lips. This can definitely act as the perfect primer before I swipe on my favourite lippie."


Campaign Executive

"I love the LANEIGE White Dew Original Ampoule Essence as it lightens my dark spots and brightens my dull complexion! I have combination to oily skin and the essence's lightweight formula works great for the humidity that we experience all year round. It does not leave me looking too oily by the end of the day. This product has reached holy grail status in my books!"


P.S. We're also looking forward to getting one — or all — of these new beauty releases.
