If you are a makeup junkie like myself, the costs can sure add up. But no matter what the product, I am always trying to get the most of out of it. And today I am here to share with you one of my secret weapons.
So, if you want to be able to get an airbrushed makeup look, increase the longevity of your makeup, minimize pores, achieve a bolder intense eyeshadow look, all while saving money. Then continue reading.
What is my secret weapon? It is Makeup Setting Spray. I’ve been using these Facial Spray/setting sprays for years. And this is why I was so excited when I was asked to review Evian® Facial Spray, by the Wilkes Group.
Now don’t let the name fool you. While setting sprays do help to set your makeup like hairspray does your hair, it also has many other uses. And this is why I call it my secret beauty weapon! Now before I get into the insider's tricks, I wanted to let you know about Evian® Facial Spray.
About the Product:
Evian® Facial Spray contains a pure, soft, natural mineral water with a unique mineral balance, and a neutral 7.2pH. These properties are why the spray is extremely compatible with the human body. Evian® Facial Spray is suited to all skin types, even if you have sensitive skin.
Normally, I don’t feel the need to make mention of the packaging, but with this product I think it is essential. This bad boy came in real handy with a recent trip of mine as the canister is leak proof and ideal to fit right in your travel bag. Also, unlike many other sprays, Evian® Spray is sealed at the source. Hence, no unwanted bacteria and contaminants that may irritate the skin or cause breakouts.
Lastly, Evian® is powered by pure nitrogen into millions of tiny micro-droplets. These micro-droplets are the driving force that enable Evian® water spray to be absorbed by the skin. Nitrogen comprises 80% of each breath we take, so there is no effect on the ozone layer.
Without further ado...
the tricks to making your makeup last longer
Primer: Primer is essential. If you don't start off right, none of these other tips will matter. Without it your makeup will sit in your pores, create false wrinkles while leaving a dull appearance, period! On the other hand, when you do use a primer, you'll find that your makeup will have a much smoother finish while minimizing the appearance of pores and fine lines.
Airbrush Makeup Application: The Evian® Spray is great for creating that instant airbrushed
look. I used it on my Beauty Blender, when I was applying my foundation. Doing it this way prevents your makeup from settling into fines lines, giving you a flawless, dewy glow all day long. Simply wet your Beauty Blender with The Evian® Spray, dip it into your makeup of choice and bounce or as they call it in the makeup world, stipple it against your face. Doing it this way will help to prevent makeup lines, leaving you with a seamless, airbrushed movie star look.
Bright Vibrant Eyeshadow: My best tip to creating intense colors is misting my eyeshadow brush with the setting spray. You want the brush to be slightly damp, but not too wet, or it won’t work. I then dip the brush into the eyeshadow and apply it to my primed eye. Doing this is a great way to make your eyeshadows bold and vibrant. Plus, if you are using a drugstore shadow, these sprays are that extra push you need to crafting the same pigmented looks of brand name shadows at half the price.
To Set Your Makeup: After you’ve spent time layering, stippling, blending and more. The last thing you want is your masterpiece to disappear in a few hours. With a good setting spray, you will be able to keep your makeup looking fresh, with minimal touch ups. (Which means saving $$$). How To Use The Spray? Simply hold the bottle a few inches from your face and lightly spray all over your finished makeup look in a circular motion, giving you that seamless look throughout the day.
A Little Pick Me Up: If you find yourself being outside sweating or maybe you don’t have time to go home after work before a dinner date, no worries. This beauty spray can give you that instant pick me up, refreshing your makeup look, so you will only need some minimal touch-ups.
