Shh: That is my 10 yr previous secret to damp pores and skin


What can I say? It really works for me. After you've spent so much time putting your makeup on, you'll want to be the last thing to smudge it or make it go away halfway through the day or night. This spray will keep everything in place for hours without feeling sticky or stuck which is so important. I've tried the different types of Urban Decay setting sprays, but the one I love to use is the Ultra Glow All Nighter ($ 33).

The spray leaves your skin with a radiant finish – not wet or sweaty, but just the right amount of dew. There's the kind of shine that gets the compliments rolling. It's also refreshing and cooling, which is nice little self-care while I get ready, and it kind of perks me up for whatever I do next.

I always use the spray when I put my make-up on, even if I just put on a concealer and mascara and call it a day. It just completes the ritual for me and makes me look polished, even if I'm just feeling casual about it.
