5 Make Up Setting Sprays Worth Your Time & Money

Make Up Setting Spray

A last step many people forgo in their makeup routine is setting all their hard work with setting spray. There are two reasons we love finishing off our makeup with this under appreciated miracle product: a) to eliminate excess powder that contributes to that cakey look we can’t stand and b) to seal our makeup in to last all day and night! A few spritz of the following sprays can help keep your makeup on and looking freshly done.
