How to Make Makeup Setting Spray
Makeup setters are one way cosmetics companies keep you coming back for more. They make a product that slips off your face super easily and then they sell you a makeup setter that costs double what it should. Then when you run out, you have to buy more or the makeup you are wearing could be running down your face at any time of the day.
It is possible to make your own homemade makeup setter though. It is a great product that can also be used to make your hair shine or it can make your face powder less dull so it doesn’t look like you have to much makeup on.
