Posh V Pinch: Setting Spray

by - May 05, 2014

Setting spray is a product that is slowly gaining popularity among everyday people because it's a great way to go from work to the bar to after hours without having to lug 10 lbs of makeup around. Here are my low and high priced recommendations that I think are worth a try.

Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray- $30.00

Urban Decay has cornered the eyeliner market with their bold, edgy colors and funky names. They also created the first eyeshadow primer that had everyone raving so why not complete the process with a product that will promise to help makeup last all night from the outside. Summers in NYC were the worst time for tinted moisturizers or foundations because the humidity melted them off within hours. Powders lasted a bit longer but I never liked wearing them in the summer months because eventually it would look caked on. This product really helped my makeup last from 8am until 7am. The mist is so light that it helped my makeup set with a lasting (but not greasy) dewy finish without making me feel as if I just washed my face.


e.l.f. Studio Makeup Mist & Set- $3.00

I recently did makeup for a shoot that was hours long, took place indoors, on a sunny rooftop and under heavy lights and was hesitant to use this product because I didn't want the cast to look greasy or shiny on film. After realizing that some actors might end up looking a little too matte behind the lens I gave this a try and was really happy with the results on some of the cast. I noticed that this product works well to tone down powder and give some a more natural look while locking in the makeup at the same time. I had to make sure to spray about 12 inches from their faces because I didn't want to risk any product getting on clothes. The downside that I found in this is that it makes people with oily skin look greasy if they don't prime correctly. Otherwise it's a great deal and has become a staple in my makeup kit.
