Hey, guys! Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!
A few years ago, setting spray could only be found from high-end brands. Since then, though, the drugstore has fully embraced the setting spray. I’m not going to lie, I always have one in my makeup stash and I use it almost every day. It’s more for mentality sake. I’m not really sure it’s actually doing anything. I’ve tried the setting sprays from Wet n Wild, e.l.f., and Physicians Formula. I liked all these but went through them so fast. I decided to hit Pinterest to see if I could find a DIY option.
Lo and behold, there were some DIY recipes for setting spray. After a reading a few, I settled on this one.
For my version, I used 1 part glycerin, 2 parts witch hazel, 3 parts distilled water (spoiler alert, I just microwaved some water to sterilize it), and a few drops of rosehip oil. I mixed all the ingredients into my empty Physicians Formula setting spray bottle. The sprayer on that bottle is awesome! It dispenses a perfectly fine mist, which is essential for a flawless application.
My DIY version was accidentally put to the test a couple weeks ago. My makeup routine goes something like this: foundation, concealer, powder, bronzer, blush, highlight, eyeshadow, setting spray, brows, and mascara. I tend to get pretty messy when applying eyeshadow, so the need to brush off the fallout is almost always necessary. Welp, this fateful day I forgot to do that and sprayed the setting spray. Oops! Let me tell you what, that eyeshadow fallout Would.Not.Budge. No joke. It wasn’t going anywhere. That’s when I decided, this DIY setting spray IS doing something good for my makeup look. I’ve been hooked ever since.
Do you use setting sprays? What’s your favorite?
