If you have ever had or wanted to try Makeup Setting Spray like the department stores offered you might have been turned off by the high price tag. Luckily, with just a few items you can make your own at home that is just as good or better than anything you find in a high-end boutique.
You can even customize it with your favorite essential oils, choosing ones that fit your exact skin type normal, aging, acne prone, dry, or oily. Grab the DIY beauty essential ingredients from the list below and let’s get started on this simple recipe!
Makeup Setting Spray
You will need:
- a 4 oz. spray bottle
- 2 oz. witch hazel
- 2 tsp. vegetable glycerin
- 5 drops essential oil-
- normal skin- lavender
- dry- lavender or chamomile
- oily-rosemary or cedarwood
- aging skin-Frankincense essential oil
- acne- tea tree (melaleuca) or cedarwood
Use a funnel (or the bottle dispenser if they have one) to place all the ingredients inside your spray bottle, glass is best as many plastics may not hold up to to the ingredients and may deteriorate slightly over time.
Shake well to combine, you will want to shake before each use as well to distribute ingredients.
After applying makeup lightly spray your face with a spritz or two from 8″-10″ away and allow to dry.
This setting spray not only helps keep your makeup on longer through long days (and nights) the ingredients actually nourish your skin and make it healthier, infusing it with moisture and toning benefits. It also makes a great poolside refresher spray for the summer so consider keeping one in your bag!
