New to the makeup game and don’t know where to start? We’ve got you covered with the best setting sprays babes!
Setting spray, also referred to as finishing spray, is used to set your makeup in place after finishing your makeup application (pretty self-explanatory right?) to achieve a long-lasting look. It’s a mist that usually includes a combination of water and alcohol as its main ingredients. In addition to making your makeup last longer, it can prevent the fading and smudging.
There are two main ways to apply – the first (and most common way) is to spritz all over your face after you’ve applied your makeup. The second way is to spray a bit after each step of your makeup application, so a first spritz after you apply your foundation, again after you’ve done your eyeshadow, and a final time after your blush, powder, and lipstick.
Skindinavia offers a few types of settings sprays, each that offer over 16 hours of protection with our patented slow-release technology. Yay science! They are also each cruelty-free, vegan, paraben-free, and hypoallergenic.
