What is a setting spray, you might be asking. It works like hairspray, but for makeup. Once you've applied your makeup, you simply spritz your face from a few inches away and give it time to dry. Now you can expect makeup that looks the same at the end of the day as when you just put it on. Try any of the setting sprays on this list for fab results.
