You don’t want to spend precious time perfecting your cut-crease or your super-snatched contour only to have it smudge away after one good laughing fit—and that’s exactly why setting spray should be a part of your daily makeup routine. Setting spray is the glue that holds your entire look together: Without it, sweat, tears, or even your skin’s natural oils can cause your makeup to slip and slide around, destroying your masterpiece. Not on our watch.
A must-have in your makeup bag, setting spray differs from makeup primer—which also helps keep your look locked down—in how it’s used. Primer is applied before you break out your makeup brushes, while setting spray is (usually) spritzed on at the end of your routine to tie your look together.
At NYX Professional Makeup, we have tons of different setting sprays to choose from, including matte-finish formulas that help control excess shine and shimmer-flecked formulas that give your skin a gorgeously sunny glow. For your daily makeup-setting needs, try Matte Finish Setting Spray. The lightweight formula sprays on easily and locks your makeup in place while helping dial up the intensity of your pigments. The result is a beat that looks vibrant and freshly-applied all day and night long.
For those who prefer a fresher, more natural finish, try Dewy Finish Setting Spray, which provides long-lasting hold and brightens up your skin with a subtle kiss of dewy shine. And don’t forget to stash a miniature bottle of your fave multi-tasking setting spray in your bag when you’re going out: A few spritzes throughout the day (or night) will refresh your makeup and ensure it doesn’t budge ‘til you’re ready to reach for the makeup remover. Find the perfect setting spray for your skin at NYX Professional Makeup.
