What's the best thing about Spring weather? Warmer temperatures, newer wardrobe, and the cool breeze of rain to keep your skin hydrated.
The worst thing? Rain. It frizzes up your hair, soaks your clothes, and if it gets on your face it can ruin your perfectly put together look with a swipe of your hand wiping away raindrops. But makeup can fade for many reasons.
Do you ever blot excess oil and notice you removed some of the makeup by accident? Makeup can also crease over time naturally, especially with smile lines. In the situation of makeup transfers, your makeup can transfer to your clothes, food, drink, your hands, or other people if your one to hug or press checks to others in greeting.
That's when setting sprays come in to save the day (and night!). Setting sprays are to your face what top coats are to manicures: they seal in your look for long term wear. As crucial to your look as primer, setting sprays are considered a finishing touch to a makeup regimen.
Especially now, when setting sprays can do more than just seal in your look: some can add extra shine, remove extra shine, or add just the right amount for photography purposes!
So for the long rainy days, or just long days, we have a short arsenal of setting sprays that can keep your makeup flawless all day long, rain or shine.
