BEST FOR UNDER & OVER MAKEUP
Jeju Daily Rehydration Mist +, £40 | Beauty Pie
A blend of hydrating hyaluronic acid, revitalising bamboo grass, antioxidant-rich Jeju Yoshino blossom – as well as anti-ageing scutellaria root – makes this such a versatile product. While we’ll admit it sounds more like skincare, it does work wonders under or over make-up if you’re looking to liven up your look or add instant glow. Plus, it’s made with natural ingredients and without fragrance, so it’s perfect for sensitive skin types.

BEST FOR A LIGHTWEIGHT FORMULA
Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray, £28 | Charlotte Tilbury
Few make-up artists do full-on glam better than Charlotte Tilbury – so you can trust she knows how to make a good setting spray. This ultra-thin formula won’t disturb your make-up – in fact, it will help it go the extra mile. Plus, it’s infused with plenty of skincare ingredients, including aloe vera to calm and replenish, and green tea to soften and clean.

BEST FOR LONGEVITY
Prep + Prime Moisture Infusion, £30 | M·A·C
Beauty junkies, make-up artists and celebrities have all dubbed this setting spray a ‘holy grail’ – and we can see why. The perfectly thin mist disperses evenly thanks to an expertly crafted design, and it works as well as a primer as it does a setting spray – it promises to hold make-up in place for 12 hours at a time. While it comes in a few iterations, this Moisture Infusion mist works best for drier skin types.

BEST FOR A NIGHT OUT
Electric Riviera Coconut Blush Continuous Setting Mist Coconut Bliss, £17 | Morphe
Micro-fine in texture, this setting spray enhances the look of both liquid and powder-based products. The radiant formula delivers a flawless, blurring effect – a top tip is to spritz your highlighter or eyeshadow products with a bit of this first to amp up the pigment. Air-powered, we love the continuous mist – which makes application that much easier.

BEST FOR THOSE ON A BUDGET
Makeup Radiant Finish Setting Spray, £8 | NYX Professional
This expert formula takes any matte or powder-based look from flat to radiant – so much so it's hard to believe the price tag. Helping to achieve that glossy, glass-like finish, a light spritz of this is enough to give skin a fresher, healthier glow in seconds. The best bit? It’s never sticky or tacky, so your make-up won’t feel like it's breaking up come lunchtime.

Always An Optimist 4-In-1 Mist, £26 | Rare Beauty
Setting make-up and hydrating the face all at once, this mist also tackles the appearance of skin texture and fine lines. Using a botanical blend of white waterlily, gardenia and lotus, it works to soothe and calm, while niacinamide adds a plumper look and blurs imperfections. It’s also seriously brightening when used under make-up – try spritzing some onto your Beautyblender to sheer out heavier foundations for a second-skin look.

Full of agave and hyaluronic acid, it ensures make-up doesn't cake or pile throughout the day, while giving your skin a more luminous finish.
