How to Choose the Perfect Setting Spray

Warm weather can be the enemy of your perfect makeup look, and with the summer approaching, you’re probably looking for ways to keep your look perfect throughout the day.

One solution is the setting spray — a spray that you apply after putting on makeup in order to help it stay on your face longer without melting off. But how do you choose the right one?

The setting spray should be strong enough to prevent makeup from sliding off your face, but not too strong so it makes you look cakey. Bad formula setting sprays often have a hairspray formula and can add unnecessary shine to your face. 

You want to use a hydrating spray that also has a blotting effect because nothing is worse than your oily skin ruining your makeup a few hours into your day. Of course, it’s crucial to have a proper skincare routine that will give you the perfect makeup base. If you’re wondering whether you should save some money or splurge on the setting spray, we say go for the more expensive brands, because you will really be able to see the difference.
