As the heatwave continues so does our struggle to keep makeup from sliding off our faces. But there’s one solution to this sweaty situation – a setting spray.
The much-needed summer staple is more than just fancy-looking face mist. As the last step in your makeup routine, they not only often boast skincare benefits, but they also hold your makeup in place and keep your skin shine-free throughout the day.
And according to Amazon shoppers, the NYX Matte Makeup Setting Spray, which costs just £5.94, is one of the best.
The lightweight setting spray from NYX keeps makeup in place with a matte finish
Just a couple of mists of this bestselling spray gives makeup the ultimate staying power. While it’s suitable for all skin types, the mattifying finish is best suited for those with oilier complexions.
Not only does it keep your makeup in place, but it also contains niacinamide and plant extracts to soothe skin while helping to refine enlarged pores.
And although there’s no foolproof method to make makeup stay and not stray, the customer reviews suggest this spray really will help your makeup stay in place through all eventualities.
The vegan and cruelty-free NYX Matte Makeup Setting Spray has racked up a whopping 15,600 reviews on Amazon with an average star rating of 4.5 out of 5.
Several shoppers say the budget beauty buy works just as well as more expensive options, and others claim it has helped maintain makeup under face coverings.
The spray is best applied after makeup application with a recommended application distance of 15 cm from your face
One Amazon reviewer wrote: ‘I used this during the 37-degree heatwave and it made my makeup last for over 12 hours which is amazing!! So good! Definitely will buy again.’
Another fan commented: ‘Absolutely brilliant setting spray! I usually pay for quite an expensive setting spray, but this is definitely my new favourite! Makeup has stayed on all day!’
A third shopper wrote: ‘It’s amazing at keeping makeup in place and leaves a dewy look on foundation. Has kept makeup on through 6 hours of PPE!’
For best results, apply the NYX Matte Makeup Setting Spray as the last step in your makeup routine. Shake the bottle before use and hold it at least half an arm’s length from your face before misting an even layer to avoid any makeup disruption.
