Hello Loves, happy Friday! Today’s post is going to be about my top 5 recommended facial setting sprays. All of these sprays can be used to prime the face, as well as set your makeup! I love each of these products for various reasons, so if you’re interested in learning more in depth about each product, please keep reading!
#1. Mario Badescu Facial Spray With Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater
This spray gives a very hydrated, dewy look to the skin which I love! It is very versatile which is beneficial since you can use it to prime your skin as well as set your makeup. Since this spray has all natural ingredients, it feels very refreshing on the skin and truly gives you a radiant glow. In addition, this spray can also be used to restore the moisture in your skin after having washed your face, which is great for those in a rush who don’t have time to apply a moisturizer, you can just spray some on your face and you are set!
#2. Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water
I find this product to be very hydrating and refreshing on the skin as the electrolytes in the primer awaken your skin while adding back moisture. This primer is great for all skin types as it is oil free, but also creates a level of hydration and moisture that isn’t overbearing. I enjoy using this primer after I prep the skin with moisturizer, which creates a dewy, sheer canvas for my face. I tend to only use this to prime my skin opposed to using it as a setting spray; however, it is intended for both priming and setting! If you are interested in a further product review for this, I will link the post!
#3.Avène Thermal Spring Water
The Avène Thermal Spring Water is an amazing multipurpose spray. The spring water is captured directly at its main source, in order to ensure that its soothing properties are preserved. I keep this spray in my purse with me at all times so I can refresh my skin whenever I am in a dry environment or need to add moisture to my skin. I also use this to prep my skin before makeup at times, and sometimes to set my makeup if I am going for a more natural, healthy look. I am going to post a list of benefits this spray has and what it can be used for;
- Following surgical procedures
- Facial redness
- Skin irritation
- Diaper rash
- Following make-up removal
- Following shaving
- Following exercise
- Following hair removal
- While travelling as a refreshing spray
Since this is an all natural spray, I highly recommend this to anyone with sensitive skin, who reacts easily to fragrance and other harsh chemicals and ingredients that can be found in products.
#4. Urban Decay De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray -Oil Control
This spray is formulated to set your makeup in place while controlling oil and surface shine on the skin. This is a very weightless formula, which is why I love it for nights out when I need my makeup to last for a long period of time. I use this spray on majority of my clients who are going to be in either humid environments or are needing their makeup to last them all day and night. Although this spray is a thicker consistency than most sprays, it feels very light weight on the skin, even when dried! A trick I also like to do is use this spray to prime, before my makeup, as it creates a barrier between my skin and the makeup, ultimately making it last all night.
#5. Mac Prep & Prime Fix +
This is a spray many people are familiar with. Like many others, this is multipurpose as well. This can be used to prime the skin, set the makeup and also as a shadow insurance in order to adhere pigments to the eyelid and intensify the colour payoff of the pigment. This spray refreshes and hydrates the skin, to give a very dewy finish. This spray contains an ingredient called “Glycerin”, which has humectant, which ultimately attracts moisture to your skin. If you are oily like myself, avoid spraying this in the areas where you get oily, as it will only intensify the shine. I also recommend spraying this over your makeup if you find it looks powdery or cakey since spraying this over your skin will not only amplify the intensity of the look, but will moisten the powders, giving you a seamless, natural finish.
