5 Setting Sprays and Facial Mists With Surprising Skincare and Makeup BenefitsDecember 07, 2022
There are few things more satisfying than a good makeup day — you know, when your winged eyeliner is completely even on both eyes, your foundation looks like a second skin and your lip color adds the perfect pop. To help your makeup look last all day, we recommend misting it with a setting spray, which can give your complexion a dewy or matte finish, depending on the formula you choose. Not into setting sprays? Face mists are a great addition for freshening up your face throughout the day. Below, we found five setting sprays and mists that also pack skincare ingredients.
