Setting Sprays With SPF Are Your New Summer Makeup Must-Have
·3 min read
Putting on makeup every morning requires a certain amount of time and effort — time you could've spent hitting snooze and going right back to sleep. When you've forsaken 30 extra minutes of rest for flawless foundation and well-placed blush, the last thing you want to do is reapply sunscreen throughout the day and end up with that perfect blush smeared on your forehead instead.
Still, sun protection is a non-negotiable, and reapplying is just as important as putting it on in the first place. Luckily, there's a solution in the form of setting sprays with SPF. Not only will these formulas hold your makeup in place for extended wear, but they also make reapplying sunscreen beyond easy — and can provide the daily protection you need if you haven't found an SPF moisturizer you love just yet.
So that you can add this one-and-done product to your makeup routine, we've rounded up the best setting sprays with SPF — just in time for summer.

The oppressive humidity and scalding temperatures of summer exacerbate any standard makeup gripes tenfold, but what no one's sharing with you is that there is one single product that cures all these woes for up to 16 hours at a time. Melted foundation, oily skin, vanishing blush, even sun damage - these issues can all be solved with setting spray. Setting sprays use special polymers to seal your makeup in place, creating a breathable mesh on top.
Well, mine is tinted sunscreen. Seriously, I use a tinted sunscreen every morning, even if I'm not going outside, and TBH, you should be too. A good tinted sunscreen (as long as it has SPF 30 or more, and protects from both UVA and UVB rays) will help prevent sun damage, like fine lines and dark spots, and, more seriously, skin cancer.
Now that the world has slightly re-opened and people are starting to unleash the lower halves of their face to the public again, it might be time to re-up your stash of makeup products. The excitement I feel about being able to go out of my house with lip gloss is truly upsetting.
