Plus, there's something out there for everyone -- from shiny-complected ladies trying to make it through sub-tropical humidity without dissolving away entirely, to drier-skinned women trying to make it through their eight-hour day in an air-conditioned office (not to mention a sweaty night out at the local club). Suffice it to say, we've got you covered, no matter what your complexion or weather conditions -- so read on for the 15 best setting sprays that'll keep your makeup from pulling a Wicked Witch of the West on you.
If You Pull All-Nighters That Have Nothing to Do With Studying
Some products have heartily earned their cult-status, and Urban Decay's All-Nighter Setting Spray is certainly one of them. It's gotten rave reviews around the world, and it's not hard to tell why: It boasts some seriously impressive staying power, fit for everything from your wedding day to your wedding night (hey, there's a reason it's called "All-Nighter"). Think of it this way -- it's the kind of product that'll keep your look on point all the way through Armageddon.
If You Shine On Like a Crazy Diamond
Humid tropical (and sub-tropical) climates are known to seriously wreak havoc with makeup -- luckily, Skindinavia The Makeup Finishing Spray Oil Control has got your back. Their award-winning makeup setting spray applies in a delicately fine mist, but don't let that fool you: it's seriously hardcore. The oil-control finishing spray provides a weightless, soft-matte finish -- perfect for oily complexions -- for up to 16 hours, so you can finally retire those blotting papers.
If You're in Need of a Makeup Setting Multitasker
M.A.C.'s Prep + Prime Fix+ is renowned for its makeup setting skills, but that's not all it does: It can be used as a primer, or mixed with eye shadows to create stunningly vibrant (and long-lasting) eyeliners. On top of that, it works well to soften your makeup look -- you know, make it look slightly more natural, perhaps taking the edge off of the occasional patch of overdone powder. Oh, and it also comes packed with soothing ingredients like green tea, chamomile and cucumber -- and it's moisturizing, too. Basically, it's an all-around treat for your face. You're welcome.
If You're a Beauty Babe on a Budget
The dewy-finished E.L.F. Studio Makeup Mist & Set manages to exert major staying power, even at just $3 per bottle. Many budget shoppers even claim that it's a dupe of M.A.C. Fix+ -- right down to the chamomile and green tea ingredients. Though the spray bottle doesn't have the finest mist, this can be easily fixed by decanting it into a different bottle, or by patting the product into your skin to make sure it absorbs correctly.
