When you’re applying makeup, you can dramatically improve the appearance of the application from start to finish if you use a refresher spray, finishing spray and a setting spray. Using facial sprays is a great addition to your makeup routine and will keep your skin hydrated, help you avoid the awful cake-face look and ensure that your makeup lasts all day.
A good refresher spray is water-based, PH neutral and mineral-balanced and it will hydrate and freshen your skin. You can buy one that’s purse-sized to give your skin a mist-filled pick-me-up when you’re on the go. A refresher spray will rehydrate your skin and revive your makeup by removing perspiration, chlorine and harmful salt. If you have sun-burned or wind-chapped skin, the refresher spray will soothe your skin and rehydrate it.
Mario Badescu’s Facial Spray With Aloe, Herb and Rosewater is a gentle, non-irritating hydrating mist that you can use anywhere, anytime.

You can even spray over your day and night creams to give them a boost of hydration. A four-ounce bottle retails for $7.00 online.

A finishing spray is a highly-hydrating tonic that’s similar to a refresher spray, except that it has vitamins, caffeine and minerals to give your skin a soft, dewy glow while preventing cake-face.

A good setting spray will seal your makeup and using one should be the final step in your makeup routine, especially when you’re going to a special event. Setting sprays tend to contain synthetic ingredients, including gentler versions of vinyl copolymers, which are also found in hairspray, which protects your makeup from humidity and sebum.
