Makeup For Sunburned Skin: 3 Tips To Cover Up The Redness (VIDEO)

Jun 26, 2013

Let's be completely honest. There's nothing quite as unattractive as a sunburn. But for some women, it's practically impossible to not end up with red, splotchy skin after spending just a few minutes in the sun. However, that doesn't mean that you have to hide behind closed doors until you're no longer red in the face.

In the video above, PopSugar Beauty reporter Kirbie Johnson shares three tips to conceal sunburns. It begins with adding moisture back to your dry, damaged skin. Look for lotions that contain humectants and lactic acid -- these ingredients help to turnover dead skin cells and get rid of a sunburn fast.

The second step in hiding a sunburn is to apply a physical sunscreen. The zinc oxide and titanium dioxide used in this SPF product will provide broad spectrum protection from harmful UV rays.

Lastly, you'll want to cover up the white streaks that result from physical sunscreens as well as even out your complexion. A mineral foundation works best to remove redness and mask hyperpigmentation, as most are made with soothing aloe vera and are talc- and mineral-oil free.

Be sure to watch the video for the complete three-step guide to hide a sunburn without irritation.
