Why Makeup Setting Sprays Will Change Your Life.

There is absolutely nothing worse than glamming yourself up, only to see your reflection a few hours later and say “WHAT THE…” Trust me, we have all been there, including myself. It wasn’t until I fell into the makeup setting spray hype a few years ago and let me tell you I will never look back!

e.l.f. Makeup Mist & Set | Adriana Lately

Makeup setting sprays have been around for years. Many of the top makeup artists have used a makeup setting spray as their holy grail products on their clients. Put it this way, a makeup setting spray is like a hairspray for your face. From your foundation to lipstick, these unique sprays lock your makeup in place all day.

Let’s say, you start your day with a fresh face, by mid-morning you are running around and then by the afternoon your makeup might’ve slid all around or you have mascara running down your face or you have your arch nemesis – extra shine! These sprays vary in either a spray or mist form. Now you can even get one in a specific finish, such has dewy or matte.

There are a ton of makeup setting sprays on the market. Some include active ingredients like green tea to calm your skin or charcoal to absorb oil from your skin. You can even find sprays that are phthalate-, paraben, sulfate and alcohol-free!

From the time that I was introduced to setting sprays, I was hooked and never turned away from them. I’ve tried many high end and low-end sprays and you won’t believe which that my favorite makeup setting spray only costs $4.00! Yes – the E.L.F Makeup Mist & Set is my go to, everyday, favorite setting spray. It works wonders!

If you are just starting out in the makeup game or just curious about the makeup setting spray game, check out the list of setting sprays that I have tried and have found that they seriously lock my makeup into place for 8 hours+.

  6. I absolutely love makeup setting sprays and will not leave home without applying one, especially in the summertime. My favorite is the Urban Decay All Nighter. They also have a great prep spray that is so refreshing.

  12. Face mists are part of my everyday skincare routine, and I love how they work as a setting spray, too. The Water Bank Mineral Skin Mist from Laneige and the Innisfree Green Tea Mineral Mist are my all-time favorites.
