Question GIRLS, Can you still tan with makeup on??

I just wanted to know if you can still tan even if you have a little powder/foundation on your face? I kinda noticed that when I have makeup on I dont tan as fast or I dont tan at all. Or Maybe its just me imagining that this is happening.

Does this happen to anyone else? can you still tan with a little makeup on your face?

I wear a foundation with an SPF of 15 - which, surprisingly enough, guards my fair skin well against the sun. But if I wear just powder or something with no SPF - I get burned.

Check your makeup. If it has an SPF, that's why you're not tanning.

My sister tans all the time with face makeup on, she says it's still the same as if you didn't have any on. No difference.

Depends on how many layers of gunk you put on your face. My makeup is usually fairly light where my skin still shows through, so I'd probably end up getting a tan, but when you pile it one, maybe it would be harder for your skin to soak up the rays.

wouldnt it melt off anyway, lying in the sun.

sounds like a bad idea to me.

I tottally agree with chiklet there...ew....why would you wear it gets all icky and clogs your pores, and if you're going to were foundation and powder, then you might as well mnot get a tan, beucase your foundation will cover it.
