Makeup Setting Spray | DIY

You’ve probably noticed that most Make-up Setting Sprays can be expensive, but this Make-up Setting Spray can be made for mere pennies! It has only 2 ingredients and it is healthy for your skin. 

I don’t know about you, but I love DIY anything. I guess you could say I’m a “do-it-yourself-er!” Most of the time, doing things and making things yourself can save you a bundle of money.

For this spray, I like to use the little 2 oz. travel-size spray bottles because they are small and I can make a small amount to use within a couple of weeks. Then, I make a fresh batch.

What You Need: 2 teaspoons Vegetable Glycerin (this can found at any health food store or on and a bottled water (or distilled water. I saved a tiny little measuring cup that came with some liquid medicine. I keep it inverted on top of the glycerin bottle in my medicine cabinet – that way, it’s handy!)

What To Do: Measure the glycerin and put it into the spray bottle. Add the bottled water to fill it. Shake it gently to incorporate the water and the glycerin. You’ll notice that it stays clear once the glycerin is all incorporated. To use, spritz three or four times over your face after you have finished applying your make-up. Don’t hold the spray bottle too close, as you don’t need to make your face wet! Just a slight mist will do. I find that it’s best to tilt my head up and hold the spray bottle about 24” away from my face while spraying it. There you go, enjoy!

Plus: Vegetable glycerin is considered to be hypo-allergenic, but if you think you may have any sensitivity to glycerin, just test a small amount on your inner elbow area and wait a day or so to see.

It keeps your make-up set for hours, plus, the added bonus is that it holds moisture in your skin! I hope you all enjoyed this blog and I do hope it helps some of you. 

With love, Alisha Valerie. x
