The internet is a magical place. Very recently, an incredible review on Ulta.com determined a sharp increase in the sales of a NYX Cosmetics makeup setting spray. If we told you the whole story, you’d think we were crazy. The reviewer tells of how she was involved in a car crash (nothing too serious, fortunately) and how shocked she was when her makeup stayed perfect throughout the accident, the ambulance ride, the hours she spent in the hospital, and her return home! This inspired us to ask you a difficult question: Is your makeup ready to withstand a series of unfortunate events? Not on its own, obvs; setting sprays are here to help…

Makeup setting sprays are a typical wedding staple; weddings, while not to be considered one of the above unfortunate events, are the obvious situation in which you need your look to last hours upon hours without retouching it. The ceremony, the photos, the meal, the drinks, and more… nobody would want their mascara to start melting on their face, or to end up with smudged lipstick! But setting sprays are not just a professional product: today, there are products available for thick and thin wallets (find our favorites in the gallery!).

Our tip: do not limit its use to one time a day. Many of these sprays have moisturizing properties, so using it multiple times during your day can only do your skin good! PARENTAL ADVISORY: actually looking for unfortunate events is not recommended; your makeup will last a long time anyway!
