You're Doing It Wrong: Forgetting To Apply Makeup Setting Spray

June 16, 2014 by Julia Welling

Getting your makeup to stay on for long periods of time is tough, especially during the summer months when sweat and oil are basically unavoidable. You can apply and reapply as much foundation, primer, and powder as you want to keep your face from melting off, but at the end of the day, you’re still going to have shiny skin. (Unless, you’re one of those freaks of nature that don’t have this problem. And if you are, the rest of us envy you and wish you would stop being so perfect.) So how are we supposed get flawless skin and keep our faces on in the summer? The answer: use Urban Decay makeup setting sprays.

Urban Decay’s sprays do exactly what the title says. They literally set your makeup. All you have to do is apply your makeup, then spritz your face with one of UD’s three different sprays when you’re finished and BOOM! your makeup will stay on all day long. If you aren’t using one of these sprays this summer, you’re doing your makeup wrong, and you need to stop what you’re doing and get one of these sprays immediately. Don’t believe us? Head over to Sephora and try one out for yourself, but first, find out which one is best for you.

For the oily gal: If you have naturally oily skin, then this one is for you. Urban Decay’s De-Slick Oil-Control Makeup Setting Spray ($30) fights oil and shine by giving your skin a matte finish. Apply this spray after you put on your makeup, and you’ll be oil-free all day. There’s no need to worry about your makeup melting off your face or smudging when you use this product. And unlike primers and other makeup setters, this spray is weightless and won’t clog your pores or dry you out (aka. cause you to produce even more oil).

For the party girl: If you’re out partying till dawn, you definitely don’t want to leave the house without applying Urban Decay’s All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray ($30) first. This spray will save you from being “that girl” who’s holding up the bathroom line at the club because shes reapplying her whole face. This spray will control oil and keep your face flawless and your makeup vibrant for up to 16 hours. But just because it says “all-nighter” doesn’t mean it’s ok to sleep in. No matter how much you partied, always wash your face before you hit your pillow.

For the basic chick: When we say basic, we don’t mean boring (this time). We just mean normal. Urban Decay Chill Makeup Setting Spray ($30) is for girls with normal combination skin. Not too oily. Not too dry. Just right. This spray uses time-released temperature technology to chill the surface of your makeup and keep it from cracking or smudging for up to 12 hours. Spray this on and you’ll never have to touch up on the go again.
