If you don’t use a makeup setting spray, you should start using it in your makeup routine. It helps your makeup look smoother and less powdery and can protect against sweat, rubbing, and clumping. 

All about asetting spray: 

A makeup setting spray can be used to fix your look once you’ve perfected it and keep it from smearing or smudging. Setting spray, otherwise known as fixing spray, comes in spray or mist form and keeps your makeup looking good all day, like your daily makeup basics kit. 

Primers can hold makeup in place, but setting spray is much more effective. Many makeup “experts” say all you need is primer. Setting products come in mist, spray, or powder for all skin hues. When you master setting spray, touch-ups in the ladies’ room will become less frequent. 

Why use Setting Spray? 

If your makeup starts to wear off before you get home from school or work, use a makeup fixerspray to make it last longer. In addition, makeup setting sprays dissolve powder into your face, giving your makeup a more natural effect! 

Setting sprays can also make your skin look more moisturized or matte, depending on the spray and your skin type! 

Tips to use a setting spray: 

  • Step 1: Shake well before use. 

A good shake ensures the setting spray doesn’t drop or smear. Some substances can settle at the bottle’s bottom. Mix all ingredients by shaking well. 

  • Step 2: Spray X- and T-formation.  

Hold the setting spray bottle 6-8 inches from your face. Avoid spraying too near to cover your entire face. Spray an X-formation first, then a T-formation, to cover all the surface area. You can spot-spray too, if necessary. 

  • Step 3: Let Dry.  

The last thing you should do is let the makeup fixer spray dry by itself without doing anything else. This helps the spray soak in completely, so your makeup won’t smudge. 

How can I pick the best setting spray for makeup? 

  • If you have dry skin, try to choose moisturizing makeup setting sprays that leave your skin looking dewy rather than lifeless. 
  • If you have combination or oily skin, opt for matte-finish, oil-control makeup fixer sprays that prevent your makeup from spreading and shining all day. 

Remember these things: 

Setting sprays usually make your face look somewhere between matte (not shiny) and dewy (glowing). When you spray your face with a setting makeup spray, it won’t look completely dry, but it also might not be as shiny as dewy sprays. You can spray on more than one layer of setting spray. 

When should I use a Setting Spray? 

Every day after you’re done with your makeup! 

On days when your makeup needs to last—a long day, an event, or a wedding—we advise using a spray at the very least (especially if you’re a bride). 

Although each makeup setting spray online has instructions on it, generally speaking, you hold it approximately 10 inches away from your face, spray an even layer over your entire face, and then wait for it to dry. If the directions for your spray differ, then adhere to those guidelines. 

Setting spray can be used multiple times during makeup application if you truly need your makeup to last!
