How should I apply makeup over sunscreen?

Lisa Wyatt, San Francisco

Bobbi: Dust bronzer over your cheeks, forehead, nose, and chin, then sweep on a blush that's the color your cheeks turn after exercising (it's your most flattering shade). If your skin is already rosy from the sun, skip blush and add a bit of shimmer to your cheeks in a pale pink (if you're fair) or peach (if you're darker) to enhance your natural flush. Apply it on your cheekbones, moving up toward the hairline in short, downward strokes. That's all you need to play up your glow.
