The best kind of sunscreen is the kind you actually want to wear—not only because it does a kickass job of protecting you, but also because it makes you look even more beautiful than you already are! Leave it to us to find products that do both jobs (function AND form) equally well. That’s right. We’ve found sunscreen you can count on to keep your makeup face intact in the sweltering summer heat. 

Go ahead and sweat it out this summer.. Our top sunscreen picks are either so light they’re invisible on your face, or they have a pretty cool dual function, acting as both sun protection AND makeup.
