Best Makeup Setting Sprays of 2021
The oppressive humidity and scalding temperatures of summer exacerbate any standard makeup gripes tenfold, but what no one’s sharing with you is that there is one single product that cures all these woes for up to 16 hours at a time. Yes, really! Melted foundation, oily skin, vanishing blush, even sun damage — these issues can all be solved with setting spray.
Setting sprays use special polymers to seal your makeup in place, creating a breathable mesh on top. They’re super simple to use, as you can just spritz them across your face in a T or X shape just like a standard facial mist, and they give you a more long-lasting than a primer might. “Priming sprays are a bit more skin-care-focused and offer more texture for a smooth surface,” Allen Goldman, CEO of Skindinavia explained to POPSUGAR. “Finishing sprays are about a healthy, luminous look and extended wear.”
Once you incorporate setting spray into your beauty regimen, you’ll be able to party at a music festival, sweat it out on the tennis court, or work a full day and hit up happy hour looking like you just applied your makeup. Read on to discover some of our favorites.
