DIY Makeup Setting Spray

Hey guys, sorry I haven’t posted in like forever but today I have an awesome diy for you guys. I haven’t really known about setting my makeup with a spray until I watched YouTube videos and I set out to buy one. I looked and looked and found many great setting sprays: Mac Prep + Prime Fix + , Urban Decay ALL NIGHTER Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray. They were so expensive! So I looked through Pinterest and found out that I can make my own. So that is exactly what I did. I modified the recipe to suit me and it turned out really amazing and not too sticky. Here it is!


  • Filtered Water
  • Glycerin
  • Witch Hazel
  • Flavouring not oil based (optional)

I found recipes that just used water and glycerin but I found that quite sticky and it didn’t work as well as adding witch hazel which made it smoother.


  1. Clean out a spray bottle and depending on how big it is fill it up to roughly a tenth of the bottle.

2. Next pour in an tenth of Witch Hazel then fill the rest of the bottle with filtered water.

3. If you want some scent in yours add a few drops of flavour. I used Strawberry. Then make sure the lid is closed tightly and slowly turn the bottle upside down until the glycerin drips down. Shake it up then voìla! You have your very own makeup setting spray for a fraction of the price!

To use it:

When you finish applying your makeup use 5-7 sprays from an arm length’s away and let it set in and then your makeup should last all day!

Thanks for reading everyone and I hope this helped you!
