Introducing our tutorial on how to craft your very own DIY Easy Makeup Setting Spray to unlock the secret to achieving all-day glamour. We’ll delve into the simple yet powerful art of creating a customized setting spray that not only keeps your makeup flawlessly in place but also adds a touch of radiance to your look.

Ingredients Needed

  • Aloe vera gel
  • Rose water
  • Medical glycerine
  • Distilled water

Choose high-quality ingredients to boost the effectiveness and safety of your DIY beauty products. Also, where an essential oil is included in my recipes, I utilize either of two types of essential oils: pure, if added in drops, or diluted, if mixed in grams.

Tools Needed

  • Measuring cup
  • Bowl
  • Teaspoon
  • Wooden popsicle
  • 125-milliliter (4.22 US fl oz) spray bottle to store your DIY Easy Makeup Setting Spray

Prior to use, ensure that both your utensils and containers are properly cleaned and disinfected. Wash them with warm soapy water, dry with a tissue, and then sanitize by spraying with 70% medical alcohol. Wipe them clean and let them air dry before use.

  2. Apply your makeup: Put on your makeup as usual, whether it’s foundation, blush, eyeshadow, or anything else in your routine.
