Genius Setting Spray Hacks You Wish You Knew Before

Makeup Hacks With Setting Spray - Maybelline India

After meticulously crafting your eye, face, and lip makeup, it's time to complete the look with a crucial step: applying setting spray. A few spritzes of a long-lasting setting spray not only ensures your makeup endures all day without creasing or smudging but also offers versatile applications in your makeup routine. Let's explore a few setting spray hacks and various ways to use it in your makeup routine.  

1. Set Your Eyebrows

This step is one of the most underrated setting spray makeup hacks that can do wonders. Achieving perfectly filled-in eyebrows is one thing, but making them stay in shape is another challenge. A clever setting spray hack involves lightly misting a spoolie brush with setting spray and using it to shape your eyebrows. This not only keeps them in place but also imparts a natural, bushy appearance.  

2. Enhance Eyeshadow

When you're creating a dramatic or intricate eye makeup look, eyeshadow fallout can be frustrating. To overcome this, try this setting spray tip: spray your flat brush with setting spray before dipping it into your eyeshadow. This technique intensifies the colour and pigment, preventing creasing. It's especially handy for vibrant eye looks or the classic smokey eye

3. Use It as a Primer

If you're out of traditional primer, don't fret. A setting spray can come to the rescue. After moisturising and applying sunscreen, give your skin a few spritzes of setting spray before applying your foundation. This helps set your makeup in place, extending its longevity. 

4. Create Custom Eyeliner

This one’s a unique setting spray hack. Colossal bold black eyeliner is timeless, but sometimes you want to experiment with different colours. With setting spray, you can craft your custom-coloured eyeliner. Dampen your gel eyeliner brush with setting spray, dip it into your preferred eyeshadow shade, and let the brush capture the pigment for a unique eyeliner look, perfect for when you're on the go. 

5. Refresh Your Makeup

On a long day out, carrying your entire makeup collection isn't practical. Heat and sweat can cause makeup to melt and crease. To combat this, use setting spray. Smooth out creases with a beauty blender and spritz some setting spray over your face. This revives your makeup and keeps it looking flawless. It can also be used to smoothen under-eye creases with ease. 

6. Amplify Your Highlighter

Highlighter adds radiance to your face makeup. If you want a more intense glow, apply setting spray to your highlighter brush before dipping it into the highlighter. This technique intensifies the shine and gives you a wet, luminous look. Use this makeup hack with setting spray to bring a gorgeous glow to your makeup.  

7. Make Your Makeup Mask-Proof

A makeup fixer spray's primary purpose is to set your makeup, making it last for hours without transferring onto your mask. After applying your foundation, concealer, contour, blush, and highlighter, set everything with powder. Then, before starting your eye makeup, spritz setting spray all over your face. This setting spray tip helps you locks in your face makeup and provides an airbrushed finish.
