I use an SPF 50 with my morning skincare, and I rarely use powder when I’m applying makeup, so my favorite way to use this has been as my “reapplication” sunscreen throughout the day! ...(I was able to layer blush, bronzer, and setting powder over it to get a cute look - see photo with NO filters for what I was able to get for a quick 5 minute look) If you want more coverage, use a powder foundation, NOT a liquid of any kind - powders stayed GREAT over it, but liquids just creased like crazy.
