Setting Your Makeup
Here at glo we talk about the benefits of setting your makeup all the time. But unless you work in the beauty industry or just happen to live for lip gloss, chances are you might not be as familiar with the term. If this sounds like you, then allow us to share a short and simple beauty secret that could potentially solve your makeup woes—before they start.
So what is it exactly?
Setting is the process of applying a translucent powder, pigmented powder, or water-based spray to your skin after you apply your makeup. It’s meant to be a final step that ensures your makeup stays where you like it, how you like it, for as long as you like it. Depending on the type of product you choose, setting can help absorb excess oil or hydrate your skin. But overall the purpose of setting is to extend the wear of your makeup.
What should I choose?
Choose a product to set your makeup based on your skin type. If you have oily skin, choose a translucent or pigmented powder to prevent midday melt. (glo minerals Protecting Powder SPF 30, Loose Base, Pressed Base). If you have dry skin, choose a spray you can apply as often as you like to prevent flaking (glo minerals Revive, Refreshing, or Moist Hydration Mist). Or, you can choose a mist for a touch of aromatherapy regardless of skin type.
