We all have heard that in order to make your makeup last longer you should spray your face with setting spray. But with all the choices, how do you determine the best setting spray for yourself? Well after playing with makeup for many years, I have been able to determine the good from the bad. And below I have listed the setting sprays which have kept my makeup on for the longest.
1. CINEMA SECRETS SUPER SEALER – This setting spray is super awesome for someone with oily skin or one living in a humid climate. The setting spray gives a lightweight, matte finish for both over and under your makeup. Also, the brand is great for long-wear tattoo coverage and preventing any transfer of makeup to your clothes. The Cinema Secrets Super Sealer costs $24.00 for 3.4 ounces at Sephora.
2. BEN NYE SEAL SETTING SPRAY – I know there are some of you who have not heard of this product or the producer, Ben Nye. First, the setting spray is waterproof and smudge-proof. It locks in your color for hours on end, even through perspiration. The spray is best used before putting on mascara and may be used on a daily basis. Ben Nye Final Seal Setting Spray costs $14.00 for 2 ounces at camerareadycosmetics.com
3. MEHRON BARRIER SPRAY – This setting spray is a clear, liquid spray which sets makeup in addition to latex and adhesives. The setting spray is also great for those with sensitive skin. And after a little digging, I discovered that many professional makeup-artists like to use this spray under the makeup they use as it helps to impede sweat, making the product for models under hot lights and for those in TV and stage work. The Mehron Barrier Spray costs $12.99 for 2 ounces at www.amazon.com.
4. SKINDINAVIA FINISHING SPRAY – Now I am sure many of you are more familiar with the name (more so than those listed above). This award-winning setting spray will hold your makeup in place for 16 hours and prevents shine. It will also keep the colors of your makeup much more vibrant, help your concealer not crease, and has been proven to reduce the need for touch-ups or blotting. You can purchase the Skindinavia Finishing Spray for $22.00 for 4 ounces at www.amazon.com.
These are by far the setting sprays I’m loving now. All setting sprays keep your makeup on for long hours, make it more vibrant, and are good for those with sensitive skin. Plus, all of the setting sprays cost less than $40.00. So, choose one today and keep that makeup on for hours.
