Learn about the importance of using a makeup primer and setting spray for flawless looking makeup that will last all day long. While primer and setting spray are great on their own, but when used together they are the perfect formula for flawless makeup.
Many people think that using a primer and a setting spray is one and the same and both are not needed to help your makeup wear and last longer. That is wrong, they work well together, but both have their own unique benefits that are needed in combination for a flawless long-lasting makeup day.
Makeup primer is a product used pre-makeup application to give your skin an even base for your products to lay seamlessly and stay put all day long. Primer is used to help create the beautiful makeup look. Whereas a makeup setting spray is used as the final step in your routine and sets your makeup so it looks just as great at the end of the day as when you left in the morning.
Does your makeup disappear by the end of the day? Primer creates a barrier between your skin and the foundation so it doesn’t just absorb in. The function of a primer is to help fill in imperfections. With your pores, your skin is like an orange peel. Primer will make it smooth like an apple! If you start with a smooth surface, it’s easier to create a flawless finish.

Using a setting spray is similar to using hair spray after styling your hair, once you start using it you will never look back. Setting spray is used to prevent all makeup, including foundation, eye shadow, and lipstick, from creasing, smudging or fading, most setting sprays go on much like hairspray: in a fine mist. It should be applied after completing a full face of makeup, not just for glammed up looks you should even apply after your everyday makeup routine. For best use, shake the bottle, then close your eyes and spray it on in both an “X” shape and a “T” shape, about eight to ten inches from your face.
