3 Setting Spray Hacks That Will Transform Your Makeup


Setting spray is one of the greatest beauty inventions of all time and an integral step in our makeup routine. Although not everyone feels this way, trust us, it’s the secret to long-lasting makeup with zero touch-ups! You just need to know how to use a setting spray to its full potential, and you’ll be converted. Here are three setting spray hacks we swear by for flawless, long-lasting makeup.

Setting Spray Hack #1: For Creaseless Eyeshadow

It can be hella frustrating when you spend what feels like forever blending and buffing your eyeshadow for it to crease a few hours later. This setting spray hack will ensure your eyeshadow lasts all day long. Dip your eyeshadow brush into your eyeshadow of choice, then mist the brush a few times with setting spray, then apply as usual. This helps not only make the pigment pop, but it keeps it in place all day long. This also works amazingly for shimmers, as it helps to intensify them. Try spritzing the brush first, then dipping it into a shimmer before applying for ultimate shine.

Setting Spray Hack #2: For A Long-Lasting Glow

We discovered this hack when experimenting with our setting spray, Resting Boss Face, $33. Now, we couldn’t imagine doing our makeup without it, as it not only locks our makeup in place but it gives our skin a stunning luminosity. All you need is setting spray, a beauty blender, and a cream highlighter, like the Kjaer Weiss Cream Glow, $32. A great drugstore option is the L’Oreal True Match Lumi Glow Amour Glow-Boosting Drops, $15; the shimmer is SO pretty, and the liquid formula will work perfectly for this hack.

Start by spraying a damp makeup sponge with setting spray, then dip it in your fave cream highlighter. Next, dab it along your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, and the Cupid’s bow, then bounce the remaining product over the rest of your face to set and add a soft glow. You’ll be left with radiant skin that stays all day. Get ready for the compliments!

Setting Spray Hack #3: For Groomed Brows

Laminated brows have dominated the brow game over the past year and the easiest way to get the look is using a spoolie and a little setting spray. Just douse a spoolie in setting spray (our Resting Boss Face Setting Spray, $33, is the bomb for this hack), then comb the spoolie through your brows in an upward direction. It will instantly add shape and definition, and it keeps your brows locked in! Use this on bare brows, or use it once you’ve applied your brow powder or pomade, and it’ll majorly enhance the look.

To Tame Frizz

Okay, so this isn’t a makeup hack, but it’s a hair hack straight outta Huda Beauty HQ. One day our colleague with undeniably fabulous hair needed a little hairspray to keep his quiff intact. To his despair, he had run out of hairspray, so instead, he spritzed his hair with Resting Boss Face, and it totally worked. We then discovered that it’s a great hack for tackling mid-day frizz. Just spritz your setting spray onto a toothbrush or spoolie and use it to tidy up flyaways or keep your edges laid.
