Frequently Asked Questions

  • How to use a makeup setting spray?
  • Hold the bottle 6-8 inches away from your face and spritz the formula in an X formation followed by a T formation, covering all areas where you’ve applied makeup. Allow the spray to dry naturally to avoid smudges and smears.

  • How does setting spray help makeup?
  • While the primary purpose of a setting spray is to lock your look in place and avoid smearing, smudging or fading, many formulations go beyond the call of duty to boost glow, amplify radiance, and deliver a filter-like finish.

  • How many times should I use a setting spray?
  • You may choose to use a setting spray as the final step of your makeup or after each step to lock it in place. Use a setting spray as often as you desire, however, perform a patch test to be sure it doesn’t have an adverse reaction on your skin.
