I’m on my way to university but let’s have a quick discussion about makeup setting sprays before that. Are they really worth the hype? Let’s find out, shall we?
You’ve probably already heard about makeup primers or you maybe have one in your makeup bag. A makeup primer is applied before the foundation and it provides a smoother application. Well, a setting spray is then the last step of your makeup routine, meaning that you use it after you are done applying your makeup. So, think of it as the finishing touch. It usually comes in a spray or mist form. It is transparent and doesn’t change the texture or the color of your makeup. It just sets everything and makes sure that you won’t have a makeup meltdown in the middle of your day. A makeup setting spray is suitable for almost any skin type but pay extra attention to what you are buying, if you have a sensitive skin. Maybe consider a product that doesn’t contain any alcohol or any harsh chemicals. After you’ve picked the best one for you, all you need to do is to apply a few squirts of the spray on your face from an arm distance.
So far, so good! But where do you find a makeup setting spray? I’ve looked online and found out that Urban Decay have one, e.l.f. cosmetics have one, online catalogs offer setting sprays also (eg. Avon, Oriflame). Or in my case Alverde ( a German brand) offers a great, natural setting spray and it only costs 3 euro. If you have a DM store nearby, you can have a look.
In my opinion, a setting spray is a great option, especially if you want for your makeup to look extra nice and to last a long time. Let’s say you have a big event coming up, a setting spray would be your best friend. Of course, you don’t have to use it every day, it is by no means a necessity but it could be very helpful for the days when you have something important and want to look put together.
