And talking about the increase of temperature and more importantly humidity means a setting spray is a must for these hot summer months. We love the Milani Make It Last Setting Spray. We found it to keep our makeup looking fresh all day and all night. It’s a well-known dupe for Urban Decay Allnighter and is a fraction of the cost. It is perfect to spritz before you walk out the door. Remember to let your mascara dry before the spritz! We call this product an absolute must if you live in a humid climate. It’s also vegan and cruelty-free.
Summer months are a great time to experiment with bright colors just remember to set it all in place! You wouldn’t want your makeup to melt off an hour after it is applied!
