How to Use a Makeup Setting Spray How to Use a Makeup Setting Spray How to Use a Makeup Setting Spray

Ever wondered what the secret is to makeup that lasts as you go about your day? It turns out that there is a makeup product out there that can help keep your foundation, concealer, eye shadow, and whatever else you have on in place. Want to know what that product is? It’s makeup setting spray! Here, learn what makeup setting spray is and how to incorporate it into your beauty routine.

What Is Makeup Setting Spray?

Real talk: It’s always so disheartening to see all of you hard work fade away well before lunchtime, which is why you might want to consider adding a makeup setting spray to your beauty routine. Never heard of makeup setting spray before? Well, think of it like a top coat for your makeup. We know it’s never easy to keep your makeup looking fresh all day long, but makeup setting sprays can help keep the need for midday touchups to a minimum. This product usually comes in the form of a spray or mist. The whole purpose of using a makeup setting spray is to help prevent your makeup (foundation, lipstick, eye shadow, and more) from smudging, creasing, or fading quickly.

Add This L’Oréal Paris Makeup Setting Spray to Your Makeup Bag

Ready to use a makeup setting spray? Try the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray. This oil-free makeup setting spray has a micro-fine texture to help set your look after you’re finished applying your makeup.

How to Use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray

Makeup setting spray should be the finishing touch to your beauty routine each morning. After you’ve fully applied your foundation, mascara, and lipstick, shake the bottle, hold it eight to 10 inches from your face, and spray it on in either an “X” and “T” motion. Just make sure to avoid spraying it in your eyes!

An Easy Start-to-Finish Look Using Makeup Setting Spray

Now that you know what makeup setting spray can do, it’s time to incorporate it into your daily routine. Follow this natural-looking makeup guide.

Step 1: Start with primer. Primer can help to create an even canvas for the rest of your makeup application, and it can also help to ensure your makeup stays in place. Try the L’Oréal Paris Studio Secrets Magic Perfect Base Face Primer. This lightweight primer helps to smooth lines and hide pores. After cleansing and moisturizing, apply the primer dot by dot and blend it in using a gentle circular motion all over your face or on targeted areas. You may want to pay particular attention to your under-eyes, nose, cheeks, and T-zone.

Step 2: Color correct. You know those pastel-colored concealers you’ve been seeing everywhere? It’s all part of the color correcting trend! Green can help to neutralize redness, peach can help to disguise dark circles, purple can help to camouflage dullness, and yellow can help to hide discoloration. Use the shades of your choice from the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Total Cover Color Correcting Kit.

Step 3: Apply foundation. Reach for a full coverage foundation, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Total Cover Foundation, available in 12 shades. Apply it with a makeup sponge, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender, using dabbing and rolling motions.

Step 4: Swipe on a volumizing mascara. Get ready to bat those lashes! Apply a coat of volumizing mascara, like the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara. To use, place the brush at the base of your lashes, and gently sweep it up to the tips of your fringe.

Step 5: Add a subtle kiss of color to your lips. Want a pretty-looking pout? Use a nude lipstick from the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Collection Exclusive. There are five shades for different skin tones (fair skin tones, fair-light skin tones, light-medium skin tones, medium-olive skin tones, and deeper skin tones), so finding your nude match is easier than ever! To apply, start at the center of your upper lip and work from the center to the outer edges, following the contour of your mouth. Then, glide the lipstick across your bottom lip.

Step 6: Spritz on makeup setting spray. This is it—the final step in your makeup routine! It’s time to use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray to help set your look.
