Set Your Makeup
We all know the incredibly gross feeling that occurs when heavy makeup meets blistering heat. That doesn’t mean you have to give up your full coverage faves come summer, though — there’s a far easier way to ensure all the products you’ve so carefully placed stay put. Enter mattifying makeup. From setting sprays to powders, gels and more, summer slippage will quickly become a thing of the past.
Spritz that flawless face of makeup into place with a setting spray. If you want something super heavy-duty, we can’t go past the Kryolan Professional Makeup Ultra Setting Spray. The benefit of setting spray is that it leaves the skin feeling refreshed and hydrated, and won’t change the overall feel of your makeup.
If you prefer powder, opt for something translucent, such as the elf Cosmetics Perfect Finish HD Powder. This will control shine throughout the day and won’t leave a white cast to the skin.
Finally, this one’s a little off-centre, but key if you really want to lock everything in. Designed for the stage and screen, the Mehron TouchUp Matte Finishing Anti-Shine Gel Treatment can be applied over the top of your makeup to create a waterproof seal-like effect.
