What is setting Spray, and what does it do?
You’re missing a lot if you don’t use setting sprays when wearing makeup. Setting sprays are a great way to extend the life of your makeup. Setting sprays keep your makeup fresh and can also mattify, shine, and give your face a goddess glow.
How does setting spray differ from Primer?
It may be necessary to use both setting spray and Primer to make your makeup last. Some people use a primer or setting spray, but we recommend both.
