Hey all! I hope you all have been having a wonderful day. I decided my first “Rave” would be about something I think every woman needs in her make-up bag: setting spray! I stumbled upon probably the best one I have used yet, and (dun dun dun) it’s only THREE dollars. Yes, you read that correct- three whole freakin’ dollars!
For those of you who are unfamiliar with setting spray, let me fill you in. This will revolutionize your make-up, I promise you. What setting spray ultimately does is make your make-up stay on all day long. It basically “seals” your whole make-up look, including the eyes. I discovered setting spray when I was researching “how to have your make-up last your whole wedding” and viola! I’m bummed I didn’t learn about it sooner.
I personally spray my face 4 times, in the form of an X formation, and then like a cross. That way it is sure to cover all of your face (don’t forget to close your eyes!). I have extremely oily skin (I always carry Clean and Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets) and my make-up tends to wear off after an hour or so. I have tried so many setting sprays, including Urban Decay’s All Nighter, and I seriously think Elf’s Mist and Set works significantly better- it is also about a third of the cost. If I pair a primer, 24hr foundation, and this spray my makeup stays put the majority of my work day. However, I still need to do some minor touch-ups due to my oily skin 😦 . This is great for those unbearably humid, hot days where your make-up just seems to melt off.
Where I live, I can find this Elf Mist and Set in Walmart or Target, I’m not sure where else they sell their products. I hope you all decide to give it a try and let me know how it goes 🙂
