Makeup setting spray finishes
Korean makeup setting spray comes in a variety of finishes. The choice of finish depends on the makeup look you are trying to achieve, and also your skin type. Here are the most common makeup setting spray finishes
- Matte: Matte setting sprays give your skin a non-glossy finish, much like using a makeup setting powder. Matte setting sprays are excellent for those with oily or combination skin as they are often enriched with oil-controlling properties to help control excess sebum production, prevent clumping and caking of makeup for longer-lasting, fresh-looking finish. Nonetheless, if you have dry skin and would like a matte finish on your final makeup look, you can still go for a matte setting spray but opt for something that is not overly drying or use additional moisturiser on your makeup base or by using a highly hydrating makeup primer.
- Natural: Natural setting sprays are the most popular types of makeup spray finish as they are versatile enough to perfect any makeup look regardless of your style! It is no surprise that natural finishes are the preferred option for many because they are hydrating enough to be used on dry skin, yet not greasy and can be used on those with oily or combination skin. Natural setting sprays set and hold makeup in place to prevent it from cracking, smudging or fading, leaving it fresh and long lasting for longer durations.
- Dewy or Glossy: Dewy or glossy makeup setting sprays are your best friends when it comes to creating a fresh-looking, juicy, and youthful-looking makeup style. This type of makeup setting spray finish leaves a sheer-looking glow and shine that gives your face a fuller, plumper appearance that compliments any colourful makeup style very well! Apart from that, dewy or glossy makeup sprays tend to contain higher concentrations of hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid which retains moisture for longer durations, making it a great option for those with dry skin types. But if you have oily skin and want to create a dewy and fresh makeup look, you can use an oil-controlling makeup base or primer to prevent your face from looking overly greasy or oily at the end of the day.
How to use makeup setting spray
After applying a full face of makeup which includes face makeup like foundation or compact powder, blush, highlight and contour, simply spray the makeup setting spray directly onto your face. Shake the bottle well if required, position it about 15-20 cm away from your face. Be sure to keep your eyes closed and spray all over your face to set your makeup in place. Allow it to set and dry slightly.
Another common use of makeup setting spray is to enhance the colours of your coloured makeup like eyeshadows, by first spraying your eyeshadow brush before dipping it into the eye shadow colour of your choice. Doing this will give a more vivid, brighter colour payoff in just a single swipe. Not only will your eye shadow appear brighter, it will also boost the staying power, keeping it looking smooth without clumping or cracking.
