Stop reapplying your makeup and use a setting spray for all-day wear. Here's how to make your own at home for a few bucks.

In a clean spray bottle, combine 2 ounces of glycerin, 1 ounce of witch hazel and 8 ounces of bottled water. Shake vigorously.

Spritz on your face at an arms length after you have applied your make-up. Enjoy a beautiful smudge free face (and added dewy glow) all day! You'll find your makeup supply will last a whole lot longer.

Keep your spray in the fridge and replace every couple weeks for freshness.

I'm wondering if anyone has a good homemade recipe for makeup setting spray? Something like the "Model in a Bottle" brand. Thanks!

A light misting of flitered or spring water serves to "set" your makeup. I wouldn't put any of the artificial stuff on your face. Just hold a spray bottle (set on fine mist) arms length away and lightly spritz your face.

How about Evian or Aquafina water mist in a can? I've seen the Evian at Longs and Aquafina at WalMart, it's a "hydrating" face spray, basically water in a fine mist on the skin.


Also I would try YouTube and type in what you are looking for, there are several makeup people out there EnKoreMakeup, Meepocow (she just did a video on the waters). I used to use the Evian for when I did mineral makeup, worked good.

2/3 Distilled water, 1/3 aloe Vera juice. Clean bottle with a fine mist. Wash well if reusing. Slaying bacteria on your face well diminish the process.
