If your make up is not staying on long enough or it changes form of some sort (I’m referring to those unwanted black eyeliner smears under the eye) within an hour or two after applying it, you may want to try a setting spray. Yes, setting spray is the unsung hero to make up lovers. When it comes to taking the time to get dolled up and wearing makeup either for the day or a special occasion, the significance of making it stay in place is crucial. If you’re new to the idea and don’t want to spend a fortune trying several kinds, why not make your own? Here are three do-it-yourself recipes you can make right at home and then simply apply after you’ve done your make up. Go ahead and try these recipes and let us know which one is your favorite!
1. Make up Setting Spray with Rose Water
Rose water is an excellent natural skin toner and is also an excellent ingredient for setting your make up. Begin by preparing your own rose water by infusing fresh rose petals in steaming hot distilled water. Take a half cup of rose water and add 1 tablespoon of vegetable glycerin to it. Mix well and gently pour into a spray bottle. Lightly, spritz over your face once you are done with your makeup application and allow it to dry up completely before starting your day.
2. Make up setting spray with Aloe Vera
Aloe vera is a natural skin care ingredient that many women swear by. Whether it’s healing scars, wounds or moisturizing dry cracked skin, aloe has many healing agents without harsh chemicals being added to it. Aloe is most hydrating and it’s a perfect ingredient for a DIY setting spray. Start by taking pure aloe vera gel and warm distilled water in 1:3 ratio. Pour them together into a spray bottle, shake well and you’re done!
3. Makeup setting spray with Witch Hazel
The many benefits of witch hazel are not unknown to those in the beauty industry. Whether your making products or buying them, this is an ingredient we’ve earned to trust and rely on. When making your own DIY makeup setting spray with witch hazel, you need to first blend witch hazel extract and distilled water in a 1:3 ratio. Pour it into a spray bottle and store it in the refrigerator until its thoroughly chilled. Once it’s cool, it’s ready to go!
