Facial sprays & skin mists are a must on my beauty counter. I love using various mists to keep my skin hydrated as well as my makeup in place; I can’t go a day without them! There are definitely a lot of options out there that vary in strength and purpose. Below, I’ve shared some all time favorites as well as amazing holy grail dupes!
Urban Decay is synonymous with Setting Sprays in the world of face mists. Their All Nigher Makeup Setting Spray is a tried and true cult favorite that I personally used for years. It keeps your makeup locked in and in place, exactly where you want it. I recently switched to this Cooling & Hydrating version call the Chill Makeup Setting Spray and found that it works amazingly at setting my makeup while keeping it hydrated and preventing any cake-ness!
L’Oreal’s Infallible Pro-Spray and Makeup Extender is a fantastic drugstore option to set your makeup look. Retailing for only ~$12, it contains many similar ingredients as UD’s while being a bit more price conscious and still keeping all that hard work you put into your face, in place!
This Glow Refresh Vitamin C Mist by Lumene is the best all around mist. You can use it within your skincare routine to prep before applying a serum, you can use it before you apply out your foundation to help blend it out or you can use it after you’ve had your makeup on a while and need a pick-me-up! It contains Vitamin C to promote radiance and hydration and feels so refreshing to use throughout the day.
Makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic helped launch TATCHA’s Luminous Dewy Skin Mist into social media fame by mentioning that he uses it on Kim Kardashian to get that gorgeous glow. Wow, did it blow away my expectations! When you want that JLo natural glow, this is your spray! It is a luxury line so it’s on the pricier side but this mist does not disappoint. Since I have oily skin, I prefer not to use it after my makeup but before I apply it. Not only does it feel amazing, it blends out your makeup like a dream and gives such a gorgeous glow from within!
If you’d like a similar effect without paying an arm and a leg, I’ve been head over heels for Pixi’s Hydrating Milky Mist! It’s second ingredient is Glycerin, just like the aforementioned luxury spray, and at only $15 it’s an amazing dupe! It does an incredible job at blending out your foundation and helping your makeup look really meld together. I’m usually the type to always buy unscented products but this mist really smells so incredibly good! I love it so much, I have multiple bottles around our apartment to make sure it’s always reachable when I need it!
