This is not your typical DIY makeup setting spray recipe.
I’m not going to tell you to mix up some rosewater and glycerin and expect you to believe that it will set your makeup on a hot summer day. It won’t.
Don’t get me wrong — glycerin setting spray has its place. (I wrote a post about it, after all.) I love glycerin for its hydrating, dewy finish, and it works well when the temperature is cold or mild.
There’s a reason why there are so many options on the face mist market. Whether you’re looking to hydrate your skin or set your makeup, there’s something extremely refreshing about spritzing your face.
Judging by the price tag of mineral water in an aerosol can, it’s clear that brands know this too.
That being said, finding a mist that hydrates, nourishes and soothes skin (while giving your makeup extra staying power) is easier said than done. This is especially true for those who are sensitive.
