One of the best things about makeup is that it gives you a chance to play around with creativity and self-expression, yet at the end of the day you can just wash it off and try something new. But even though makeup is temporary, if you want to get the longest wear out of your products, finding the best setting spray is a necessary step. After all, not only can a setting spray refresh and revitalize your skin, but it can also make sure your beat stays locked in all day.
But which type of spray should you choose for your skin type? While setting sprays that have oils and provide a dewy finish are better for those with dry skin, those with oilier skin may prefer a setting spray that provides a mattifying effect. Good thing there are a ton of different types with different ingredients and different finishes from which to choose. Not to mention that you can actually use a setting spray for a variety of other functions such as intensifying pigments.
