Do you change your sunscreen depending on the makeup look you want to create?
I do. If you want glow, Ultra Violette Queen Screen SPF50+ is for you. It’s a lightweight and sheer, glow-giving sunscreen with great UVA protection and a fresh rose scent.
Price: $AU47 for 50mL
Inclusivity: I’ve seen this sunscreen work on all manner of skintones – Ultra Violette themselves have a very diverse instagram feed and insist on educating consumers how much they really need to apply – no “a little goes a long way” garbage here. So refreshing. So I can confidently tell you that it’s sheer. For everyone.
Skin Types: Normal/combination to dry. If you prefer a matte finish, you might find it too glowy, although it won’t clog pores.
Makeup Compatibility: O M G. I love it so much, sometimes I just prime with Queen Screen and go. Applies well over makeup too, if you use a little at a time and don’t mind being very glowy. I’ve made several demos of this technique but first figured it out with this sunscreen – there’s a how to on my instagram story highlights!
I have seen people mention that it separated their foundation but have not experienced this myself.
This will give you a gorgeous dewy look, and can blur the skin enough to wear alone.
Finish: D E W Y
Sensitivity: None experienced, although those extremely sensitive to fragrance may have trouble
Eye Sting: None!
UV Filters: Octinoxate, Octyl Salicylate, Tinosorb S, Tinosorb M.

Will it clog pores?
Not for me. Be sure to patch test and double cleanse at night if this is an issue for you.
Bonus Ingredients: Kakadu Plum for an Australian twist and loads of Vitamin C,
Dragosine Plus for added infrared and blue/high energy visible light protection 🤗
Glycerin for added moisture, I’m on a big glycerin kick right now
I LOVE Queen Screen!
