Why Setting Spray Is Your Best Kept Beauty Secret!
We glamazons have a lot of things to do, and that includes long days where we sometimes only have time to apply our makeup once! But, when you’ve got the ultimate beauty secret, aka a dynamite setting spray, then once is enough. We’ve chosen our top setting sprays we rely on to ensure the makeup we’ve applied in the AM stays on our faces perfectly well into the PM.
NYX Makeup Setting Spray (Matte/Dewy)
Makeup guru Christine Cho recommends NYX as one of her go-to choices for setting sprays. A beauty bargain at $10, these sprays come in dewy or matte depending on what look you want for your flawless finish. The lightweight spray goes on easily and comfortably lasts for hours.
Christine’s other top choice is Makeup Forever’s Mist and Spray. Ideal for those who tend to touch their faces throughout the day (guilty perpetual eye-rubber right here!) this rub-proof and sweat-proof spray lasts for up to 12 hours. It also ensures that skin doesn’t dry out!
If you’re on the shinier side of things, this setting spray is for you. Urban Decay comes to the aid of oily-skinned beauties everywhere with their Urban Decay De-slick Spray. It’s weightless and powerful and will keep you looking gorgeously matte all day long. An added bonus? It’s vegan too!
We’re big fans of Caudalie at Haute Appetite. The all-natural French beauty brand is host to so many multi-purpose products we use on the regular. Their Beauty Elixir is no exception. A deliciously scented mist with grape extracts, this spray not only sets makeup but also refreshed dull faces and tightens the appearance of pores. Just magical .
The highly-rated Set-n-Stay spray by Laura Geller is ideal for summer and winter seasons alike. The mist keeps your skin hydrated for the drier winter months but is also formulated to prevent melting or caking that the summer months tend to bring. The mineral rich spray is also lightweight and smells lovely.
