Save Vs Splurge: Makeup Setting Sprays That Work!
Yes, yes, we have said this before. But now, we are really feeling it, aren’t we? We are talking about summer. The time of the year where deodorants are the only thing keeping our nostrils from being fried, mangoes are at their orangey-sweet best, and makeup seems to abandon our face with alarming regularity.
While you might not want to put foundation (we talk about replacements in this article!), and are okay with minimal coverage, keeping it intact… now that’s another story. Worry not, we have makeup setting sprays that are committed to keeping makeup on your face, and exactly where you want it.
Smashbox is perhaps best known for its dedication to bringing out products that keep your makeup intact. The makeup is there 2 hours in, 6 clubbing hours later, and even after an intense session in the sack. While their primers certainly have a cult status, their makeup setting spray – the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water – is pretty epic as well. You can use this before you apply makeup or after it, and it claims lock your makeup in. Yes, it does cost a pretty penny, but hey, totally worth it. To make a relevant pun, ‘We are all set!’
Now, if you are looking for something that’s more wallet-friendly, turn to the NYX Professional Makeup Setting Spray that comes with two finishes – matte and dewy. This claims to keep your makeup in place, keep it looking fresh, and isn’t sticky or uncomfortable. Plus, it’s easy to carry around for when you need to give your makeup a quick pick-me-up, so we would totally recommend it.
