DIY MAKE-UP SETTING SPRAY



What is a setting Spray? PURE AMAZING-NESS- That's what!

I love my Mac Setting spray  (Fix +), but to spend $21 for a 3.4 oz bottle? I knew there had to be a way to DIY.

Setting sprays are always great to have for a quick grab in the summer, when it feels like your face is melting off.  One simple spray and you're good. (I always keep a to-go spray bottle in my purse. Around $.97 at Walmart)

I am sure you all know, bottom line, Glycerin = Sugar. Don't be scared yet. With the sugar water diluted you won't end up having syrup on your face- Also, Make sure that you  DO NOT SPRAY TOO CLOSE TO YOUR FACE. A simple spray about elbows length away is enough. 

Using this recipe you can change the scent to whatever you like! 

Personally, I like using Filtered Rose Water (it's mild, and has a great scent)- If you have redness in your skin the rose water will help.
Another option is adding one part witch hazel- it makes it feel less sticky.

~HAPPY SETTING~



Recipe

  • 1 part pure glycerin (You can find it in the facial care, pharmacy, cooking, or even craft stores) 
  • 3 parts Filtered water (or replace with rose water) 
  • Spray bottle (you can always decorate any spray bottle you put it into)   

Combination Skin- Mix 1/4 glycerin to 3/4 water inside a spray bottle

Oily skin-  Mix 1/5 glycerin to 4/5 water
Dry skin- Mix 1/3 part glycerin to 2/3 parts water.
