Three of the best setting sprays

Want your makeup to stay put no matter what the day, or night, throws at it? Then you need to invest in a good makeup setting spray.

No matter what your makeup longevity nemesis is, a good setting spray will help ensure your makeup stays put. And, let’s face it, who wants to dedicate time to applying product only to see it fade away within a few hours?

So, here’s three of the best tried and tested sprays, which have won the seal of approval at the Best Beauty Guide.


Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray

Urban Decay All Nighter

This setting spray has, deservedly, won cult status, thanks to the fact that this is one of the best setting sprays on the market. It feels super lightweight on and gives makeup serious staying power. It’s marketed at setting makeup for up to 16 hours, and, maybe I’m getting old here, but 16 hours…that’s seriously one long day! It’s suitable for all skin types, is free of oil and parabens, and promises smoother-looking skin.

Make Up For Ever Mist & Fix

Makeup Forever setting spray

I recently discovered this on a recent trip to Sephora specifically to buy the above mentioned Urban Decay setting spray. Price wise, they pretty much sit side-by-side, so it really was the pull of trying something different that prompted me to purchase it. And, I’m glad I did, without question this is just as good as Urban Decay’s All Nighter. I find it has a cleaner, fresher scent too, and helps keep makeup looking like it has been freshly applied.

MAC Prep + Prime Fix

I’m a fan of MAC, I find their products always deliver, and the Prep + Prime Fix is no exception. However, I don’t find that this offers as much hold as the Make Up For Ever and Urban Decay setting sprays. However, it does do a wonderful job at refreshing makeup throughout the day and giving skin a hydration boost. It’s packed with vitamins and minerals, including chamomile and cucumber. Great in hot climates, during air travel, or when skin needs a general pick-me-up. You can also use this spray to prep skin before applying makeup, so a great all-rounder.
