Try These: Setting Sprays

Despite the baking trend of late (a way to lock in your makeup by piling on loose powder, waiting 10 minutes for it to “bake” into your skin, and then dusting off the excess), we’ve always been partial to the ease of setting sprays.

A quick spritz saves us time in the morning, and they’re also great for a midday refresh (we keep our desks stocked, too). Plus, with many new formulas boasting skin-helping ingredients, there’s even more reasons to mist. Here, 15 of our favourite setting sprays, including options for every budget.
