If you don’t know what all the hype about face mists is, then you are truly missing out on a wonderful product. The heat and humidity of the approaching monsoon season can get your skin feeling rather blue. A spritz of a refreshing face mist can perk up your skin, refresh your makeup and leave you looking fresh.
Do not mistake a setting spray for a face mist, as they are formulated and work differently on your skin. A face mist is made with hydrating ingredients that focus on skincare. Setting sprays are made with cosmetic ingredients that seal in the makeup and prolong its wear.
Now that you know not to mix your setting sprays with face mists, let us tell you a few nifty things that your face mist can do!
- Gives you the lit-from-within look
- Avoids tight-feeling skin
- Helps lock in moisture
- Provides better colour payoff with cosmetics
- Easier touch-ups
Gives you the lit-from-within look
Spray a face mist beneath your foundation and wait till it dries before continuing with the foundation and concealer. This gives you the dewy effect and also helps blend the products better.
Avoids tight-feeling skin
Long flights or spending a lot of time in air-conditioned offices may make your skin feel tight. Avoid this by spritzing a face mist that hydrates your skin and refreshes your makeup.
Helps lock in moisture
After you apply your moisturiser, spray a little face mist and then apply your sunscreen. This serves two purposes. It serves as a final layer of moisture beneath your sunscreen, which will seal it in. And it will give your skin a dewy effect underneath your makeup.
Provides better colour payoff with cosmetics
A trick many makeup artists use regularly is to spray a face mist on their brushes and blenders as this will lend intensity to the colour pigment and will also help blend the product better.
Come mid-day and does your makeup begin to look dull? Instead of the usual powder-dusting routine, spray on some face mist that will hydrate the skin and refresh the makeup. If you still want a little powder, then wait till the spray has dried and gently dust powder only where you want shine control.
