The Complete Guide to Finding the Best Setting Spray for your Face
Setting sprays is a great way to set your makeup and make it last all day. They prevent your makeup from shifting, sliding or moving as you go about your day. Setting sprays are used to lock in makeup and set the final look of the day.
Here are some things to consider;
- Pick a hydrating setting spray if you'd like a dewy look or if you have dry skin. The con of a hydrating spray is that it's not as effective as holding make-up in place but it still promises an awesome dewy finish and medium hold
- If you are acne prone, consider an antibacterial setting spray. In addition to its holding power, it contains ingredients that help kill bacteria on your face that may cause further breakouts.
- If you have sensitive skin, it's best to avoid setting sprays with a scent. You'll be sure to find perfume in the ingredients list.
- The ingredients in a setting spray can be a good indication of what the product is meant to do. Setting sprays are used to help keep makeup in place for longer. It is essential to look out for alcohol, silicone, and oils listed among the ingredients. These are all substances that will not only counteract the effect of a setting spray but also cause skin irritation.
How To Get The Best Out Of Your Setting Spray
A great Setting spray does exactly what it's supposed to. It sets your make-up and makes it last. But the oils your skin produces also pack a punch and will show up sooner or later depending on your skin type or the weather. You can make your setting spray work better by spraying it in between steps. Put on some setting spray before your foundation, before your other complexion products and any other time before your final spritz.
