DIY Makeup Mist Setting Spray

I absolutely love using setting spray after applying my makeup, its works great for my oily skinny. I usually buy the brand by e.l.f., its $3.00 at Target. The price is great but the bottle is on the small size it 2.02 oz., which doesn’t last long if you’re like me. Sometimes I have to attend different events many times during the week and need to redo my makeup.


So this is when I decided I needed to make my own setting spray so I can get more for my money and not have to worry about running out all the time.

What you will need:

Sterile spray bottle (the bottle needs to be able to spray in a mist setting)

Filtered water

Aloe Vera juice or glycerin

Witch Hazel

You want to add two parts water, one part aloe Vera or glycerin, and one part Witch Hazel. Shake up all ingredients well in the bottle (make sure you shake well before every use).

After applying your makeup, spray your mixture on your face.

I bought all my products from Walmart

Dickinson’s Original Witch Hazel Pore Perfecting Toner, 16 fl oz


Fruit Of The Earth Aloe Vera Juice, 32 oz



Yesterday I had a kick ball game at 4:20 pm I put my spray on at 2:00 pm and heres my makeup right before the game at 4:00 pm.
