Makeup setting sprays

After it takes a half hour for us to apply our makeup. The last thing we want when we look in the mirror after a few hours it to see our makeup and hard work either has flaked off, is patchy or needing touched up. I love makeup setting sprays and the feel they can instantly take away that powdery look and make the skin look more natural. Really you could say they are like a hairspray for the face.

My top 4 are.

4: Caudalie Beauty Elixir

This is more of a refreshing spray for your skin but can be doubled as a make up setting spray. The only draw back to this is if you are sensitive to strong odors this has a strong smell initially but it does fade. It feels soft on the skin and leaves a lovely glow to the skin. This is €26 for 3 30ml bottles. 

3: Urban Decay Chill makeup setting spray.
Urban decay have a number of setting sprays on the market. This is €28 for 118ml so is on the pricey side. They have different types for different skin type needs. First is the de slick setting spray. This is aimed for people who have oily skin or even and oily T zone. This helps fight shine and the oil at bay throughout the day. Second is the chill which I have. This is aimed for dry or dehydrated skin for that extra moisture boost and to keep the skin feeling chill and not as tight. Third is the All nighter spray. I think this is the most popular in their range. Aimed to simply keep your makeup in place all night.

2: NYX Dewy finish

I love this stuff for everyday. This adds a lovely subtle glowing youthful look to the skin. It sits on the skin and helps my makeup last that little bit longer than it would without it. This retails from €11-14 and has 60ml in the bottle.
1: Mac Fix +

This is an all rounder. This can be used to prep the skin for makeup or after to set it. It leaves a lovely glowing finish to the skin. This for me is the best. It has a lovely fresh cucumber scent and can be used to help bring out the pigments in eyeshadows. This is €21.00 for 100ml bottle.
