Yesterday, I was chatting how makeup setting mist can be a lifesaver when used in conjunction with highlighter. Highlighter can be so damn clingy and it accentuates everything! Dry skin, pores, uneven skin surface, you name it and highlighter can cling horribly. Powder is the same especially for drier skin! Misting yourself after highlighter can refine the finish and you can depowder, smooth, and soften the appearance of it with a little makeup setting mist.
Sure, there’s good and bad things about makeup setting mists.
Do you use them?
Yay or nay for you?
I rarely use them. I mist myself crazily with my favorite hydrating facial sprays but when it comes to makeup setting mists I tend to avoid using them! Sure, I own them and sure, I use them but it’s actually quite rare. I don’t really see the point of makeup setting mist and I feel like I’m smearing my makeup when I use them. For example, after applying foundation, blush, etc…and proceeding to mist myself I end up feeling like my blush becomes a lot more intense. Obviously, damping anything that’s powder will intensify the color. I feel like a dewy clown after misting myself with a makeup setting spray after applying makeup. Not to mention, after spending so much time to put my makeup on why would I want to drench my face?!
I just feel like I’m smearing my makeup and making things look worst instead of better when I use a setting mist.
So, it’s more of a nay for me than a yay.
What about you?
Do you always set with a mist?
Or do you just apply your makeup and go?
