Makeup setting spray, AKA “finishing spray” or “setting mist,” is to makeup what hair spray is to hair. It’s designed to be used after you’ve applied all of your beauty products (we’re talking post-makeup primer, foundation, concealer, bronzer, blush, eyeshadow, mascara–the whole deal) to lock in your makeup look. Most setting sprays contain water to hydrate the skin (and keep it from flaking and looking cakey) and a range of polymers to hold your makeup firmly in place. Some specialized setting sprays also contain skincare ingredients, like hyaluronic acid for dry skin or oil-free ingredients for oily skin.
If you have oily skin or find that your makeup disappears by the end of the day, setting spray could be the perfect solution for you. Plus, since spritzing on setting spray is the final step of your makeup application routine, it never comes in contact with your actual skin, making it an ideal choice for sensitive skin types.
How to Choose the Right Setting Spray
As simple a product as setting spray is, there are a variety of different types out there to choose from depending on your needs and preferences. For example, some makeup setting sprays can transform a makeup look from matte to dewy, Others are meant to do the opposite and be more mattifying, like this simple .

Maybelline Superstay 24 Makeup-Locking Set Spray Review
This Maybelline adjusting spray particularly extends the longevity of makeup and locks it in place. It comes in a humble white bottle, and the spray does not feel sticky or sticky – it is instantly absorbed into the skin. It also feels very refreshing on the skin. Maybelline did not specify the skin type for which this product is suitable. However, I found it to be ideal for extremely oily to combination skin, as it is very mattifying. If you have dry skin, we do not recommend trying this setting spray. Overall, it is a budget option pharmacy that offers great competition to the big brands.
