Every makeup routine needs a finishing touch that secures the whole look and pulls it together – that finishing touch is a setting spray. Whether you’re dealing with sweat, heat, creasing, or oily skin, a good setting spray can help keep your makeup looking fresh for longer. “Priming sprays are a bit more skin-care-focused and offer more texture for a smooth surface,” Allen Goldman, CEO of Skindinavia, told POPSUGAR. “Finishing sprays are about a healthy, luminous look and extended wear.”
A makeup setting spray is the last step in your routine that helps give your complexion a blended, flawless look while protecting and preserving it for long-lasting wear. Setting sprays use special polymers to seal your makeup in place, creating a breathable mesh on top. Investing in a quality setting spray made for your skin type and needs can be more effective in making your makeup last longer than a primer might. We rounded up the best setting sprays on the market. We found top-tier picks, including the bestselling Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray and others from brands like Morphe, Charlotte Tilbury, and more. Shop our top picks ahead!
