Whether you swear by a setting spray or are yet to experience the magic of one – listen up!
Those with oily skin will know the pain of spending hours meticulously applying your makeup, only for it to slide off your face the moment you step out into the sun.
The one thing your routine could’ve been lacking? A setting spray specifically geared towards your skin type.
First things first, what is a setting spray?
Well, it does what it says on the tin and sets your makeup in place. It does so by forming an invisible layer over your makeup to protect it from smudging and fading throughout the day. Genius!
You may have thought that setting sprays were a one-size-fits-all type of product, but that is certainly not the case.
Those with normal to dry skin will require slightly different formulations and are best suited to setting sprays that are hydrating, dewy and illuminating.
If your skin is on the oilier side, those three words might make you want to run for the hills!
Your best bet? Oil-free formulations that mattify and balance the skin, all without drying it out in the process.
