The make-up sprays you need

When it comes to how you apply your make-up the usual options are using your fingers, a brush or a sponge. However, when you are applying your make-up there are two spray products I think you need to add to your routine. 

The make-up sprays you need. B. Makeup brush cleanser& L'Oreal Infallible Fixing mist

The first of these is one that you should be using while you apply your make-up. I've admitted in the past that I don't wash my make-up brushes as often as I should do, so that's why I bought the Superdrug B. Makeup Brush cleanser. It's not a substitute for not washing your brushes, but it does help to keep them cleaner and fresher between washes. This is particularly a good idea if you suffer from acne or at least the odd spot here or there. If you do have any spots while applying your make-up there is a chance spot causing bacteria could transfer to your brush, where it then sits until it transfers back on to your skin the next time you apply your make-up, causing more spots. Cleansing your brushes after each use will remove any nasties like this lurking on them and help to prevent a build up of product that will mean your brushes don't work as well as they should,

All you need to do is spray one squirt onto a cotton pad (you can spray it directly on the brush head but I personally think this can waste some product into the air) and then swirl your brush on the pad. Repeat with each brush you use. I've previously reviewed the Superdrug B. Makeup brush cleanser here

The second spray is one you should be using once you have completed your make-up. I was cautious about picking up the L'Oreal Infallible Fixing mist because I'd read mixed reviews, but I'm glad I did. I noticed that several people commented that it left a powdery look on their skin once it dried. I believe the reason for this is because you really do need to give this a good shake before you use it. 

This product is effectively a powder suspended in liquid. When not used the product will quickly separate and all the powder will settle to the bottom. You can't see this in my picture because I'd just shaken it up, but you will easily be able to see the powder when it settles. Shaking it up well mixes the powder into the liquid (there's even a little ball in the bottle to help with this) and when you spray this is then dispersed evenly onto the skin. If not shaken up well, or at all, the spray will pull up a lot of powder from the bottom of the bottle and this will likely leave a powdery appearance once dried. 

The directions tell you to spray two to four times in an X and T motion, but I don't find that works. If it was a continuous aerosol spray then yes, but I don't have enough time to move it to make even part of an X or T. So I usually spray it twice, once for the top half of my face and once for the lower half, maybe going for a couple more sprays if it's a particularly hot day or it didn't feel like it dispersed evenly across my face. Just make sure you've given your mascara enough time to dry fully or you may well end up with black marks just under your eyes. I was a little sceptical about setting sprays but I really do like this one. Using this with my YSL Fusion Ink foundation means my base will be set in place all day, even on my destructively oily chin.

With the Superdrug B. Makeup Brush cleanser coming in at just under £5 and the L'Oreal Infallible Fixing mist just under £8 you can definitely afford to add both products to your routine.  

Are you a fan of any make-up sprays?

    1. Oh I bet the No7 one doesn't fall under any of the money off voucher Boots regularly give out or I might try that one. I'm not sure if I have an NYX counter near me, are they in Superdrug? x

  2. what great affordable sprays, I particularly like the concept of the Superdrug spray, I am always so paranoid about all the bacteria on my brush. I wish I could get my act together and just wash my brushes once a week, but I am the worst at setting time aside to do that. Great post and products, I have followed you on Bloglovin', I will leave my links below if you fancy checking them out. Thank you for sharing, gorgeous header x

    1. Thank lovely. Yes I wish I was organised enough to wash my brushes weekly (although I don't always wear make-up every day) but I do leave it embarrassingly long between washes sometimes x

    1. Depending where you're based I think L'Oreal do different packaging so that might be why as I'm not sure if they do another one x
