If you're looking for a way to keep your makeup looking flawless while still showing your skin the care and love it deserves, it never hurts to try a finishing spray. Finishing sprays can lock in makeup to some degree, but the real magic is in how they condition your skin, often providing it with nourishing ingredients that takes your skin (and makeup looks) to the next level. Here are our top picks of the best finishing sprays to get you started.
Pixi's well-loved Glow Mist is a perfect example of a finishing spray that knows exactly what the skin needs. Packed with 13 natural oils as well as fruit extracts, propolis and aloe vera, its formula acts as an armour for dehydrated skin, retaining its precious moisture barrier while infusing it with instant hydration. The result is healthy, youthful-looking skin that will shine, with or without makeup.
Dry skin can be a pain in itself, but it can look ten times worse when makeup sneaks its way between dried skin flakes and cracks. The Prep + Prime Fix+ setting spray by MAC acts as a great finishing spray in this case. Lightweight yet incredibly hydrating, this famous product not only increases the longevity of your makeup, but also delivers powerful vitamins and minerals to give dehydrated skin just the right boost for an instant dewy, supple appearance.
