It all depends on the look you want to have. Are you the girl who prefers to look glossy at all times? Do you prefer the matte shine-free look? No matter which preference you choose, there’s always a setting spray for you.

A setting spray is the finishing touch after completing your makeup. After applying your foundation and mascara, it’s time to lock the makeup in.

Make sure to shake the bottle as it contains a diversification of ingredients. These ingredients need to be a homogeneous mixture to attain the full effect. Once you are ready to apply, spray your skin 6 to 8 inches from your face. Make sure you apply the T and X motion when spraying. For full effect, you should cover your whole face. This means you have to spray a few times.

Avoid getting the spray in your eyes

Another proven way is turning shadow into liner. Either spray or deep your brushes into the setting spray.

If you have eyelashes which tend to rest on your eyelids, blink a few times after spraying. This prevents damp mascara from getting on your lids.

Since it requires a spray or two per makeup application, setting sprays are considered affordable. To get the best value for your money, apply setting spray properly and thoughtfully. Be patient as you wait for liquid eyeliner and mascara to properly dry fully before spraying. It ensures there isn’t any smudging.
