Debs Beauty: Sensational Setting Sprays

After all of the effort that you’ve put into your debs make up, the last thing you’ll want is for it to start fading before the photos are even over.

Setting sprays are a debs necessity as they can help to extend the wear of your makeup and will help keep it in place all night long.

Here are six of our favourite setting sprays…


e.l.f. Makeup Fixing Mist & Setting Spray, €6

Elf setting spray is not only excellent for your makeup, but also your finances. This setting spray is particularly beneficial for sensitive and oily skin. There’s also a Matte Magic Mist & Setting Spray, €6, and an Illuminating Mist & Set Spray, €6.

NYX Professional Makeup Make Up Setting Spray – Matte Finish, €8

This NYX setting spray keeps your skin looking fresh and glowing regardless sof what stage of the night you’ve made it to. The spray maintains your makeup for longer and only costs €10.

L’Oréal Paris Infallible Fixing Mist, €9.95

This L’Oréal Paris Infallible Fixing Mist works to hydrate your skin as well as maintaining your make up. If you fancy highlighting your look this spray also contains a little shimmer to really help your skin glow. 


PIXI Make Up Fixing Mist, €18

The fixing mist is a perfect choice if you’re looking to add a dewy glow to your skin without looking like you’ve doused your face in oil. It maintains your make up and leaves you looking fresh faced but beware of the large volume of spray the nozzle expels.

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water, €24

This setting spray absorbs quickly into your skin and enhances the durability of your makeup. Its pricier than some of the others but provides a refreshed look to your makeup.

Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray, €27

Chances are you’ve heard of the Urban Decay Setting Spray. It’s the most expensive setting spray on our list but with its promise to keep your makeup lasting up to 16 hours and its proven results regardless of your skin type it’s definitely worth it. This spray is lightweight on the skin and guarantees to leave your make up looking fresh. This setting spray is so hyped and loved that the reviews on the Urban Decay website went viral!

Top Tip: Debs Setting Sprays

If you have room in your debs bag it’s definitely worth considering getting a mini bottle of setting spray to bring with you. Not only is is super refreshing after tearing up the dance floor, it can help you fix any foundation that has started to go patchy.

Simply spray a makeup brush with the setting spray and then blend over the makeup that has started to fade away for a flawless finish. We love the Urban Decay De-Slick Setting Spray Travel Size, €11 and the Real Techniques Setting Brush, €8.85.

I love dancing and swimming as ways to relax, but don’t enjoy strenuous activities (the only time I’ll be caught running is if someone’s chasing me!)
