We all love summer. Long days, summer fridays at work and weekends by the beach. But what do we all HATE about summer? The humidity and the heat. There’s nothing cute or fun about worrying if your makeup is melting off your face. So to ensure there are no makeup meltdowns to ruin your summer fun, it’s time to add a setting spray to your summer makeup routine. Keep on reading to see which type of setting spray you should choose based on your skin type!
3 REASONS YOU NEED A SETTING SPRAY
1. HYDRATE BEFORE MAKEUP:
To boost hydration, mist onto cleansed skin (an arm’s length away from face) before applying moisturizer and makeup
2. SET MAKEUP:
To set your makeup, mist on top of makeup after you’re finished
3. REFRESH THROUGHOUT THE DAY:
For a hydration boost or to refresh your makeup, mist throughout the day
I have dry skin and when I need my makeup to last all day, a setting spray is an absolute must. I just started using the Tata Harper Hydrating Floral Essence and I love it. It’s great for boosting hydration especially after applying your makeup. For a more affordable option, try the Pixi Glow Mist. You can use it before applying makeup for hydration and after makeup to set and add a dewy finish.
If you don’t really fit into the dry or oily skin type categories, then you probably fit into the normal skin category. Meaning you don’t tend to break out and your skin doesn’t feel dry or greasy. Your best option for makeup that lasts all day a night is the MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ and honestly, it’s great for dry skin too (I use it all the time)! For those of you worried about sun exposure, I also recommend the Supergoop! Setting Mist with SPF 50.
And now for oily skin. The Urban Decay De-Slick setting spray is a total game-changer. It has temperature control technology, so say goodbye to shiny, oily-looking skin. If the De-Slick is a bit over budget, I’d definitely go for the NYX Matte Setting Spray for a more affordable pick.
