Everyday Favourite Part III – Finishin Spray

First of all, my lovely ones out there. I am so sorry for being absent for such a long time. I really had so much struggles in my personal life lately, which I first had to figure out, before I could continue with the things I love – beauty and makeup. But now I am back on track and I promise you, there won’t be such a long period where I’m keeping quiet again. 🙂

So for todays article I want to continue with me Favourite series and I believe we’ve reached part 3 – and I want to dedicate it to one of the most important things, if you’re trying to wear a full face of makeup throughout a whole day: A good finishing! I’ve tested quiet a few, from cheeper ones to high end ones and there are quiet a few good ones and some, I wouldn’t recommend, because I don’t feel like they’re doing anything at all for your skin or your makeup. But there is one, I’m coming back to every time and which works for me so pretty good and that is the MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ – Finishing Mist!

What’s so good about the Fix+?

There are many reasons I like the Fix+ as a finishing spray. First of all it’s so versatile. I use it sometimes to spray my face even before applying makeup, if I feel it’s too dry. I wet my beautyblender sometimes with it, so it makes applying makeup easier (btw, you should always wet your beautyblender…nobody’s using them dry :D). I also wet my brushed sometimes before applying some eyeshadows, if I want my shadow to be more covering and have a more intense look. I love doing this especially, when it’s a foiled shadow. And then I use it for what it’s designed to be used – as a finishing spray. Sometimes I spray my face throughout the day a couple of times with this little wonder, just to refresh my face. And if you’re using this for all these reasons, it’s a truly amazing finishing spray and you won’t be disappointed. But if you’re using it as a setting spray, you will hate on it and for a reason.. Because it is NOT a setting spray so therefore it’s designed to disappoint you – if you’re using the product out of purpose… Let me tell you about the difference…

 

Setting Spray of Finishing Spray?

A fixing/setting spray is designed to lock in your makeup so it won’t move, kinda like a hairspray for your makeup. But be careful… I’ve seen people use actual hairspray to fix their makeup and this may work, yes, but please… your skin deserve way more. So spend some money on real setting sprays if you want to achieve the lock-down of your makeup. It comes in a mist or spray form, is transparent and does not change the color of your makeup. You just spray your face with the cooling mist, and let it naturally dry. Some good Settings sprays are for example the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

A Finishing Spray is a little different. It’s supposed to take away the cake of your face. You know what I mean right? When you put on layer after layer after layer of makeup and powder and concealers and all this stuff on your face and it leaves you kinda cakey – meaning you can spot from a mile away that you are actually wearing all these layers. But that’s not what you want! You want your skin to look smooth and soft and fresh. And that’s what a setting spray is for.

So as a recap: setting sprays lock in your makeup and finishing sprays are supposed to make you look fresher and softer and take away the cake!

So if you’re looking for a good finishing spray, this is the one I’m recommending you and I literally use it every day! But keep in mind – finishing spray, not fixing spray 😉
