You’ve spent a lot of time working on your makeup style, and the ideal thing to do is to see it fade away before you’ve had an opportunity to showcase it. This is why setting sprays are an essential part of your makeup kit. These water-based formulations help keep makeup in place, thereby keeping your makeup looking new. In this article, we’ll fill you into what setting sprays are and answer the most frequently asked questions about setting sprays. We’ll also provide an overview of how to apply our setting sprays to create an appearance that lasts the entire day (and throughout the night) all night. Get all the information you need.
WHAT IS SETTING SPRAY, AND WHAT DOES SETTING SPRAY DO?
You’re missing out if you’re not applying a setting spray when you’re wearing your makeup. Put setting sprays to extend the wear of the makeup. Along with ensuring your makeup looks fresh, certain setting sprays help matte shine or give your look a goddess-like glow. All it takes depends on your chosen formula (more on this later).
HOW DOES SETTING SPRAY DIFFER FROM PRIMER?
Both setting sprays and the primer are made to make makeup last longer, so you’re considering whether you need to apply both. Some prefer using either one instead of the other; we suggest considering primer as your makeup’s base coat and setting spray as your top coat. Primer provides a base you work on, and the setting spray holds everything you’ve applied flawlessly to it. They’re the ideal pair to keep your look fresh and flawless.
HOW TO USE SETTING SPRAY IN YOUR ROUTINE
If you’re unsure about the best time to apply makeup sprays, do not worry. This is a frequent question among makeup novices. Luckily, we have the answer. The most popular (and most straightforward) method of a setting spray is after your routine. Grab your favorite finishing spray when you’ve finished making your face makeup look perfect. Hold the bottle approximately six inches away from your face and gently mist the product onto your skin. The goal is to leave your skin moist but not completely soaked. Apply about one spray per part your face (so you’ll need one spray on your forehead, cheek, eye, and lips).
If you’re sporting a complete application of makeup, it’s possible to use a sandwich application technique. It requires a little more time, however, the result according in our opinion is worth it. This involves spraying tiny amounts of setting spray on your face immediately after applying your primer and before every layer of your makeup to help make each layer stand out. If you decide to go with this method, ensure to allow the spray to dry completely in between each layer (this is especially crucial in the case of powder products! ).
Pro Tips: If you’ve got an exhausting day ahead of you, keep the bottle of your favorite set spray inside your purse. When your skin starts to feel exhausted, you can spray an ounce of face-setting spray on your face.
