Everything You Need to Know about Setting Sprays

BLOG, Makeup / Wednesday, January 22nd, 2020

What is a setting spray and why should you use one? Do you find yourself confused by the huge array of beauty products on the market wondering what they actually do? Setting spray is definitely on my top 10 list of products that everyone should have in their makeup bag. Read on to find out why!

What is a Setting Spray?

We’ve all had those days where we’ve left the house with our makeup looking flawless only to notice by lunchtime that our foundation or eyeshadow has started to smudge or fade.

Thankfully, a makeup setting spray is the perfect solution to this problem. These nourishing formulas work like a top coat for your face, preserving your look so that you won’t fall victim to creasing, flaking, or sliding—all it takes is a set-it-and-forget-it spritz and you’ll be left with a flawless finish that won’t be gone by lunchtime. 

In my 7 Steps to a Flawless Face blog post I talked about all of my secrets to creating a flawless face, and setting spray was the last step. A setting spray can be applied to your entire face to help keep eye shadow, mascara, and lipstick from smudging, caking, creasing, and settling into fine lines.

Not only will the right setting spray help keep your makeup in place, but it can also help improve the look and health of your skin. Some feature ingredients that help brighten and hydrate skin, while others help control oil and shine.

Like most makeup products, the number of setting sprays on the market can be overwhelming. So today I am going to share my 2 favorite setting sprays that I use on my brides and recommend to all of my everyday women. Whether you’re looking for a setting spray that has the perfect finish, or one that works best for your skin type, your makeup will look great all day and night long with both of these picks-they both will make your makeup last at least 16 HOURS.

10 Years Younger Makeup Setting Spray

10 Years Younger is for any skin type, but is my favorite for anyone with normal to dry skin. It’s a setting spray that mists on weightlessly to reduce makeup slippage and keeps skin looking beautifully flawless. You can save up to 50% of makeup usage with this unique spray and it truly keeps your skin looking fresh throughout the day.

10 Years Younger Setting Spray

• Helps reduce makeup slippage into pores, lines, wrinkles or scars

• Keeps makeup looking flawless day and night

• Fewer required touchups throughout the day

  • Oil and Paraben Free
  • Not tested on animals

I also love that it leaves the skin sort of “youthful” looking.

Pro Tip: For my brides, I layer the 10 Years Younger Setting Spray with at least three different passes. And if they have a bit of oil to control, I will sometimes add more translucent powder in-between passes. This will make your makeup as durable as can be!


Why should I use 10 Years Younger Makeup Setting Spray?
10 Years Younger Makeup Setting Spray uses its unique dispersal system to apply a protective coating that helps keep skin moisturized and holds makeup in its place. This prevents the makeup from settling into lines and wrinkles so skin appears smoother and younger.

How do I use 10 Years Younger Makeup Setting Spray?
For best results apply just before mascara. Shake Well. Close eyes and spray 2-4 times in an “X” and “T” formation.

How often should I use this product?
For best results, use this product daily as the last step in your makeup application.

Love this

This has been such a game changer! I used to get frustrated that I was using great makeup and it just didn’t last the whole day. Now I spritz this on and my face looks smooth, fresh and my make up lasts! The bottle does last quite a whole even with consistent daily use!  
It also pairs nicely with all natural deodorants that are healthier but not always as effective. A little spritz helps enhance the anti perspirant effect too! 😂

How do I use No More Shine Makeup Setting Spray?
