Make-Up Bag: Mist Sray

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!

Elf Mist and Spray

Elf Mist and Set

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 🙂
