If you’re like me and have to battle with oily skin regardless of the climate or amount setting powder you’ve topped off your foundation with, you know that finishing off your look by spritzing on a wear-time-extending setting spray a non-negotiable step if you’re looking to keep the grease and shine at bay. While having a mattifying powder on hand for mid-day touchups is another must for any oily girl’s makeup routine, a setting spray will lock your look in place without having to rely on layers upon layers of product that will inevitably, end up looking cakey— whether you’re going to a special event where you’ll need some added defense against the shine, or just another day at the office.
It’s important to note though, that not all finishing products in this realm re created equally. In fact, most of these sprays are designed to address specific skincare concerns. For instance, if you’re merely looking to give your makeup a natural, dewy using a regular product will do. If you’re trying to keep oil under control throughout the day however, you’ll need to find the product to suit your skin type. Generally speaking, you’ll want to opt for a long-wearing or mattifying options, and should avoid investing in sprays that marked with “luminizing,” “hydrating,” or “glowy.” Since you’re naturally blessed with an incessant “glow,” opting for matte version won’t leave your skin looking parched like they may for those with dry skin types— but it will keep your base in place and oil at bay.
