Fun fact about sunscreen, anything higher than 30 doesn't make a huge difference. SPF refers to the level of protection it offers, so SPF 30 multiplys your skin's resistance to sunburn by 30, meaning it only allows 1/30th of the UV rays in.
1/30 = 3.33% UV rays allowed through.
1/50 = 2% UV rays allowed through.
So basically the extra 20 SPF blocks an extra 1.33% of the UV rays, which is pretty much peanuts in the grand scheme of things. Better sunscreen stays on your skin longer, making it more effective, so waterproof/sweatproof stuff is the way to go for near transparent people such as myself.
Get out of here with that logic, Mr. SPF 100 hater.
Don't get me wrong, if there are 2 sunscreens that are the same price, same brand and same bells and whistles (sweatproof, spray can, optional jetpack) then I get the higher SPF stuff, but if you are paying more for more SPF you aren't really getting your moneys worth.
It's hard to know what you mean by makeup. I feel like a street walker when I wear more than a little mascara, but I know girls who will spend more time putting on makeup than I care to think about. I'm going to find a good moisturizer with some SPF and that'll be my makeup for the weekend. You're probably not going to see a mirror all day so just pretend you look awesome.

I don't wear much makeup either, and I don't see the point in wearing much at Sasquatch. You are in the elements all day (sun, wind, sometimes rain) and I am always busy hanging out or seeing shows. I just wash my face and put lotion on and use lots of sunscreen. Oh and Burt's Bees because I like it. No worrying about anything smudging or whatever.
