The Power of Fixing Spray

August is here and you know what that means? Warm weather…and makeup slippage. 2017 can be different though. You just need to harness the power of makeup fixing spray!

Making makeup stay put is a year round challenge, but things really heat up in the Summer. As the temperature rises, so do the chances of a carefully applied face heading south. So, if there is a product that promises to increase makeup’s staying power – hand it over.

Though we’re all super familiar with primer, makeup fixing spray (aka setting spray) is a relative unknown. After reviewing the basics however, you may find a product like Catrice’s Prime and Fine Multitalent Fixing Spray is your new best friend.

How is it applied?

As opposed to makeup primer, makeup fixing spray is typically applied after your makeup is complete (like hairspray). Hold it at arm’s length and mist. Since it’s so lightweight, there’s no need to blot or rub the product into the skin. As it air dries, it will set your makeup.

When should it be used?

Typically used right after you apply your makeup to set it in place, a fixing spray can also be used throughout the day. Applying it on balmy days in particular will help keep makeup fresh and in-place longer.

Is it a primer replacement?

If you need ultimate makeup staying power, then don’t disregard your favorite primer. They should complement each other. If you like the staying power of primer, but want to explore other options, then a fixing spray is an alternative. The special thing about Catrice’s fixing spray is that it can also be used as a primer. Simply apply it to clean and moisturized skin and let it dry thoroughly before starting your makeup.

What’s your secret to keeping your makeup fresh all day? Will you try a makeup fixing spray this summer?
