Setting Your Makeup With Powder Just Got An Upgrade

@bufferingbetty

Slay all day.

Finding products that make your makeup last all day is what makes a ‘holy grail’ product. Setting your face is the key and we’ve all got our tricks that work for our skin. Pressed powder, setting spray, and a loose setting powder all have a place in our makeup bags. Stila is bringing innovation to getting your makeup to stay all day with a new way to set your face.

That’s right! A spray setting powder!

Did setting your makeup just get easier or messier?

Here’s the thing. Unlike a typical liquid setting spray, which you apply directly to your face, this powder setting spray is meant to be applied to your brush.

In your fantasy, you can image an aerosol type of spray with powder that easily sets your face or applies lashes (bc i still have no clue how to). But in reality, the spray would camel spit powder on your face, get in your hair and ruin your outfit. I don’t think your makeup would even set well if you sprayed powder onto your face. You need to press it in into your skin.

Stila’s In The Buff Powder Spray has a little bit of a learning curve.

Learning how to spray this powder on to your brush may take a few rounds of practice.

One other concern is how much product is lost. When your spray the powder on to your brush, a lot of it just ends up floating in the air. So the bottle may contain .39oz but you absolutely will not get to use all of it. Some product gets lost when you use a loose setting powder but it looks like a lot more will be wasted from a spray bottle.

The up side is it’s quick! I imagine for a makeup artist this would be better that pouring out a loose powder then swirling your brush in it. Just spray on the brush and then apply on to a client’s face.
