Discover The Best Makeup Setting Sprays Of 2018

Hey Lovelies!

Today I’m sharing with you the best makeup setting sprays.

The festive season is in full swing and you’ve got back-to-back parties for the foreseeable, which means Instagram and social media are about to be flooded with pics. So, you want to look A-mazing? This year, it would be great to avoid any dodgy-looking pics taken just a few hours into the event, in which liner seems to have gone for a swim underneath your eyes (taking the smudged look to a whole new level) and any foundation has slipped from your face like you’ve been standing in a melting pot. Not a good look! This party season, we want serious staying power – but we don’t have to resort to the spray on plaster in the bathroom cabinet. Here are the best setting sprays that are incredible at ensuring your makeup remains flawless all evening.

1.E.L.F. Matte Magic Mist & Set, £5, www.elfcosmetics.co.uk

As a huge fan of E.L.F. Cosmetics foundation and primer, I couldn’t wait to give their Magic Mist Setting Spray a try – it did not disappoint. Makeup acquires a gorgeous matte finish and stays firmly in place for a good 8 hours – which is unbelievable for me given that makeup seems to just evaporate to the point where it looks like I hadn’t even bothered applying any to begin with. Major result!

2.Kat Von D Lock-It Makeup Setting Mist, £17, www.debenhams.com

Being a newbie to Kat Von D products I was keen to try out this setting spray. This works a treat in creating a gorgeous matte finish and (most importantly) locks your makeup to your face like it has some kind of invisible super power. You can party the night away and still take some filter-free pics on your ride home. I love this!

3.NYX Matte Finish Makeup Setting Spray, £7. nyxcosmetics.co.uk

When I read about the woman who claimed her makeup stayed put (using NYX Setting Spray) throughout the trauma of a car crash, I wasn’t surprised. For me, this setting spray has serious gluing power, provides a beautiful matte finish and instead of nipping to the club toilet and cowering in sheer horror at your ‘Freddie Kruger-like’ reflection (obviously from seeing a face of smeared makeup, not blood), your flawless complexion is, well, actually PERFECT! NYX, I love you!

4.Urban Decay All Nighter Long Lasting Setting Spray, £24, urbandecay.co.uk

When it comes to makeup Urban Decay set their standards to a truly professional level (which is probably why they charge that much more). Urban Decay’s Setting Spray ticks all the boxes (no setting into lines and caking, or fading) and your makeup looks as if you had just applied it -even when you’ve gone from work to a party and then danced your ass off of 3 hours straight! To be fair I haven’t tested it after 16 hours (yet) but the party season has only just begun.

Hey Lovelies!

Make no mistake – when it comes to attaining that flawless look, a good face primer is a literal Godsend! However, truth be told, the beauty market is flooded with primers that promise the earth and unsurprisingly there are some that fall way short on delivering even a mediocre result. We want actual blurring, smoothing and makeup that stays put! Do not fear, here are the best primers of 2018 that truly work little miracles to aid us in achieving that no filter necessary complexion. Read on:

Should your skin look a little dull (that’s pretty much everyone this time of year), you want those pesky imperfections gone and a perfect canvas for makeup application, this incredible primer is a star performer. Its soft-focus pigments blur away imperfections, diffusing the light to achieve that Insta-worthy complexion. Better yet, this product is packed with liquorice extract and vitamin E to brighten, firm, tighten and protect. Woah!

2.Nude by Nature Perfecting Primer, £22, nudebynature.co.uk

If you want natural skincare and makeup, this brand is for you. Loaded with natural active ingredients such as native Australian Kakadu Plum (brimming with vitamin C), as well as antioxidant rich Vitamins A and E, and green tea, ensure that your skin is not only even and smooth without the use of silicones, but receiving extra nourishment and protection too. Furthermore, you will find your makeup stays firmly in place for the duration. I adore this brand!

3.Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer, £26, smashbox.co.uk

This transparent gel formula works like a dream in creating a flawless base for your makeup and is one of the best primers I have ever tried. Minimising the appearance of imperfection, fine lines and pores, whilst creating an even and smooth base for your makeup – is there anything this face primer can’t do?

4.Urban Decay Optical Illusion Complexion Primer, £14.50, www.urbandecay.co.uk

Oh, how we HATE pores. Why should we suffer with them? The answer is, we shouldn’t. Say hello to Urban Decay’s magnificent Optical Illusion Primer, which goes a hell of a long way in reducing their appearance, whilst also blurring fine lines and providing a beautiful matte finish. Urban Decay, I love you!

Happy Monday people xx

5 Of The Best Eyeliners To Create That Perfect Look, All Christmas!

Get your liner right and everything else will fall into place. Eyeliners can make or break your look, depending on the product and of course the application (NEVER try to apply when very merry in a club toilet or your reflection just might resemble a cross between EMO and Ozzy – anyhoo it won’t be the look you were going for). Read on to find THE best felt tip, gel, liquid and pencil liners guaranteed to create instant gorgeousness. #Lifegoals!

1.Lancôme Artliner Gentle Felt Eyeliner, £23, feelunique.com

For fast, precise super-easy application, Lancôme’s Felt Eyeliner has to be one of the best. This liner is perfect for those who are a little wary about creating the flick as the tip is small enough to allow a gradual build of liner with little chance of mistake.

2.Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner, £19.50, bobbibrown.co.uk

Urban Decay never fails to impress me – and their water-resistant liquid eyeliner is no exception. This liner is super-pigmented and will create a flawless look all day long. Come evening, this precise liner can be used to give your eyes a flick that the ancient Egyptians (or Katy Perry) would adore!

4.Nars Kohliner, £19.50, SpaceNK

Narscosmetics

If, like me, you love the bold, smoky, smudgy liner look, choose the Nars Kohliner. It creates must-have, intensely sassy eyes every time.

5.Rimmel Exaggerate Liquid Eyeliner, £5.29, Superdrug

Superdrug

This remains to be one of my all-time favourite liquid eyeliners. Rimmel’s liquid liner has been around for a long time and for good reason – it works! The liner offers control, precision and staying power. Furthermore, it takes a hell of a long time before it runs out, making it such good value for money.
