All Nighter Setting Spray, £21 | Urban Decay

Best For: All Rounder

Why We Love It:

This setting spray is a cult favourite for a reason – not only does it ensure make-up looks fresh for up to 16 hours at time without fading, smudging, or settling into fine lines, the vegan, temperature-controlled formula makes it the perfect match for humidity, too. A go-to for those who want to lock down a full face of make-up, the lightweight mist will set, hold and enhance your make-up and even make skin appear smoother.

Mist & Fix Setting Spray, £22 | Make-Up Forever

Best For: Hydrating Finish 

Why We Love It:

This new mist not only keeps make-up in place for longer, it can also be used to prep the skin or give it a hydrating pick-me-up throughout the day. Formulated with 90% pure water, it eliminates cakey and dry patches, and sits comfortably over or under make-up without any tell-tale stickiness, shimmer or OTT glow.

Fresh Glow Breathable Setting Spray, £9 For Members | Beauty Pie

Best For: Lightweight 

Why We Love It:

If you often find your make-up turning powdery or cakey, this setting spray is the ideal remedy. It softly mists the skin to melt the make-up ever so slightly, so everything looks seamlessly blended and natural. The best bit? It’s also full of skin-loving ingredients, from antioxidants to lotus extract – plus, anti-pollution Vita Té to protect against external aggressors.

A staple in any backstage make-up kit, this lightweight mist is ideal for fixing a finished look or for freshening up your make-up throughout the day.

Continuous Setting Mist, £13 | Morphe

Best For: A Flawless Finish  

Why We Love It:

Thanks to its continuous, air-powered spray, spritzing this all over will evenly coat and set make-up of all textures, without making it turn patchy. Not only does it lock things in place, it also creates a flawless and radiant soft-focus finish. Simply hold it between eight to ten inches away from your face and mist.

Dewy Finish Fini Velouté, £6.40 | NYX

Best For: A Dewy Finish 

Why We Love It: 

Other than its affordable price tag, this drugstore choice has also earned rave reviews for its unique and powerful results. By day, it adds a soft glow to the skin and by night, you can use it to make bolder make-up looks pop. Simply spritz onto a damp beautyblender before using it to gently blend out a powder highlighter for a dramatic strobing effect.

Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray, £26 | Charlotte Tilbury

Best For: Blurring

Why We Love It:

Better make-up longevity is the main aim here – but the benefits of this spray don’t end there. Brimming with calming, replenishing aloe vera, softening Japanese green tea and an aromatic detoxifying resin, it definitely sits within the skin-care-as-make-up category. Use it to prep your skin before you apply foundation and spritz another layer on afterwards to keep it in place all day.
