Makeup setting sprays are mainly used in order to make the makeup last longer. They are sprayed on to the skin as the final step after completing the makeup so that the foundation stays longer and the oil does not break through the skin. Makeup setting sprays are available in different varieties. Some give a dewy finish while some tend to make the skin matte. When using light makeup, these natural setting sprays can be used for refreshing the skin as well as making the makeup last longer.
