If you’re already a fan of setting sprays, you’ll know that they are KEY when it comes to making sure your makeup lasts as long as you need it to. Of course, there are many things that come into play when it comes to your makeup lasting, like your skincare, but a setting spray will make sure your makeup lasts the whole hog.
Particularly when the sun shines, and we find our eyebrows melting throughout the day, ultimately landing on our chins (slight exaggeration, but you get the point), they’re here to save the day. So here are eight setting sprays that you’re sure to love, whatever your skin type or whatever finish you’re after.
Let’s kick things off with a brand new product, shall we? Following the success of Charlotte’s Airbrush products, there’s now a brand new Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray from Charlotte Tilbury – yep, we’re just as excited as you are. It promises to primes and sets for up to 16 hours, instantly locking in your look for makeup magic that looks ‘just applied’, hydrating and fixing your makeup to achieve that ultimate airbrush look without melting, fading, creasing or settling into fine lines.
Both a travel and a full size will be available (love that for us) on charlottetilbury.com from July 24th and in Brown Thomas and Arnotts nationwide from July 30th.
Ah, Fenty, the brand that launched and went straight to our hearts. Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty is known for, well, literally ticking all of the boxes and the setting spray is no different. It’s a hydrating mist that can be used under makeup for foundation prep, or over makeup to instantly revitalize and refresh skin throughout the day. Ideal if your skin is a bit dry, or you’re in need of a boost of hydration throughout the day. All about that dewy, dewy glow! Shop here.
A setting spray that we all know and love. MAC’s Prep & Prime, ideal for priming your face so your makeup applies flawlessly, and for locking each product in so there’s no worries of your makeup shifting throughout the day. Packed with vitamins and minerals, it’s suitable for all skin types and gives your skin that little kick of hydration. Plus, as well as the original, it now comes in various finishes, scents, you name it, they’ve got it. Shop here.
Here it is, the holy grail of settings sprays. Urban Decay’s All Nighter features their own Temperature Control Technology, so it literally lowers the temperature of your makeup to keep your foundation, concealer, and everything else in place, whatever the weather. So your makeup lasts perfectly all day, or all night, and your skin is hydrated and fresh looking too, to top it all off. It even passes the Coppers test, which let’s face it, is a pretty big deal. Shop here.
Seeking a matte finish on a budget? Look no further. Anyone who struggles with oily skin will know the hardship of keeping your makeup in place. This fixing spray from Makeup Revolution is designed to deflect shine for a matte finish, preventing smudging and fading to keep makeup in place for up to 12 hours. Ideal for us oily gals. Shop here.
Looking for that ultimate glow? Whether you have dry skin or you just want that dewy makeup look, this setting spray is the one for you. This spray from ABH seamlessly blends products together as it sets your makeup, leaving your complexion with a dewy and radiant finish. Plus, with its coconut and vanilla scent, it smells divine too.

When the news came that two of our faves, Suzanne Jackson and Aideen Kate, were collaborating on new products, well, the excitement was almost too much. Their face mist gives you that stunning glow while keeping your makeup locked in place, and it’s packed with skin-boosting ingredients so your skin has everything it may need. The lightweight formula instantly soothes the skin, brightens & boosts hydration, it’s a win-win. Shop here.
Another mist that leaves you with a radiant finish, but not too intense that your glow will be spotted from five miles away. Morphe’s setting mist has received rave reviews over the years and there’s a pretty good reason why. A continuous, air-powered spray delivers even and controlled application, the micro-fine mist puts a stop to your makeup melting, caking or fading. Sublime, really. Shop here.
