For the ultimate make-up setting power, no matter the weather you need a setting spray.
Good setting sprays will feel like nothing on the skin, will keep your make-up looking like it did as you finished it, and won’t let it melt, crease, disappear or settle into fine lines and pores. Finding a good one that won’t dull or disrupt your make-up, won’t feel tacky or drying, or like you’ve sprayed hairspray on your face, can be tricky. These are the hard-working setting sprays to know.
The Sculpted by Aimee Connolly Hydrate & Hold Setting Spray, €20, is a hydrating mist and setting spray hybrid and comes hyaluronic acid-rich, for plump dewy skin, and alcohol-free.
Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray, €32, hydrates, fixes and sets make-up so it looks just applied for 16 hours, creating a lightweight non-tacky veil on the skin that blurs pores, keeps skin hydrated and smooth and makes your make-up last.
Not only will MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ Goldlite, €24, refresh and finish make-up, but it’s infused with pearls so that it has a luminous, champagne gold iridescence to it to give a “just-been-to-the-spa” post-facial healthy skin glow.
If you’re finding that your make-up has melted down your neck by lunch, you need one of the Internet’s favourite setting sprays. Weightless, melt-proof and with serious staying power, Urban Decay All Nighter Ultra Glow Setting Spray, €31, includes hyaluronic acid and agave extract for plump, dewy skin.
L’Oréal’s Paris’ first setting spray, Infallible Magic Setting Spray, €12.99, is a micro-fine mist with 24 hours of staying power that won’t let your make-up crack, fade or melt.
For matte lovers, Maybelline Lasting Fix Matte Setting Spray, €11.45, is both hydrating and oil-absorbing for 16 hours of natural-looking skin that keeps shine at bay.
