From The Makeup Artist's Kit: Instant Mattification for Every Skin Type

Here at SheFinds, we’re shooting a show for MTV, and when our makeup artist, Raedawn Johnson, from Julie Hewett LA, sprayed my face yesterday after my makeup was done, I was perplexed. Raedawn has been key makeup artist for fashion shows in the tents at Bryant Park during fashion week, such as Vassilios Kostetsos and Plutocracy, so she knows her stuff. The makeup spay felt refreshing, but wouldn’t it melt my just-made-up face? Nope. Turns out, it sets it–like a hairspray for your face but without the stickiness. We can’t believe we’ve never heard of Skindinavia before–and now we’ll let you in on the secret to long-lasting makeup. Mine actually lasted from 7am until midnight, and looked so good, I’ll admit, it pained me to take out the make-up remover.

skinindavia dance spray

If you’re extremely active during the day–whether you’re a chef or you’re hustling as an errand girl–this active hold Skindinavia Dance makeup spray ($19) which was originally designed for professional dancers, holds up your makeup when you’re running around. This way, you’ll always look pulled together no matter what.

skindinavia 10 years younger

Sometimes concealer and foundation setttles into fine lines–to prevent this, try 10 Years Younger Makeup Finish ($19), which fights against makeup slippage into lines and pores.

skindinavia no more shine

Ditch the blotting papers and powder compacts: made for oily skin prone to shining halfway through the day, the No More Shine spray ($29) creates a matte base to your makeup, setting it into place.
