When applying makeup, it is important to consider the longevity and how long it is going to last throughout the day. A professional makeup application is meant to stay from the moment of application til the end of the day.
One might wonder, what are some products used to ensure the makeup is going to last this long? Aside from investing in good primers (both for the face and for the eyes), I do recommend getting a makeup setting spray which is used at the very end, immediately after the makeup application is complete. It is also a very simple step as it is just sprayed lightly all over the face.
The purpose of a makeup setting spray is to lock in the makeup so it does not crease, transfer, disappear, or need any touch ups.
The makeup setting spray I have been using for years and that I always keep stocked in my makeup kit is the Skindinavia Makeup Finishing Spray – Oil Control. They do offer different variations of makeup finishing sprays that essentially do the same thing but I like to get the Oil Control because I think most people want their face makeup to stay relatively shine free and matte for the day. Furthermore, this makeup setting spray ensures that the makeup will last for up to 16 hours. What I love most about this spray is that it is lightweight (it does not feel sticky) and it has a patented temperature control technology that actually keeps the face cool which prevents shine to build up throughout the day. I think that in itself is amazing!
