Posted by Halle Homel on

So, you’ve created your perfect makeup look, but how do you get it to stay locked in place all day so you don’t have to worry about touch ups? Don’t worry, we’ve got you! If you have oily skin, you might be having trouble figuring out which product to use to lock your makeup look in because you don’t want to add more shine to your face. Should you use Setting Spray or Setting Powder to lock your makeup in if you have oily skin?

What are setting spray and powder used for?

Setting Spray and Setting Powder are both used for the same purpose: to keep your makeup locked in all day long, so that you don’t have to touch your look up throughout the day. They’re both meant to be lightweight, and not add or take away anything from your look.

What’s the difference between setting spray and powder?

Setting Spray is just what it sounds like: a lightweight mist that locks your makeup look in all day. This is an easy final step to any makeup routine, and works to mattify your look so that you don’t gain any shine after using your setting spray. We love our Thank Me Later Setting Spray for this!

Setting Powder is used to lock in any foundation and concealer and can be used over your entire makeup look. Setting Powder creates a smooth look, and makes your makeup oil resistant, using its lightweight formula to minimize pores. We like our Set For Life Setting Powder for this!

Is Setting Spray or Powder better for oily skin?

If you have naturally oily skin, and you’re trying to keep the shine to a minimum when you use makeup, we’d recommend using our Thank Me Later Setting Spray. This is because it automatically has mattifying properties that help keep oil at bay. Setting Powder isn’t necessarily going to cause shine, but it doesn’t add to the mattifying properties that will actually help reduce shine!
