Best Makeup Setting Sprays in Japan

Must-Buy Makeup Setting Sprays in Japan for Smudge-Free and Long-Lasting Makeup

Now that we are living in the world amid pandemic of COVID-19, a lot of things in our daily lives have changed. One of the most notable things is wearing face masks. Wearing face masks in public is mandatory or strongly advised in many countries today. In fact, even once the COVID-19 pandemic is over, we may continue to wear face masks for a while or start wearing them daily in future.

We have been adjusting ourselves to the new custom of mask-wearing, and some of you may have found some difficulties or side effects of them. One of face mask problems that I want to mention today is makeup transferring under the mask.

Have you ever experienced your foundation or lipstick smudging onto the face mask?? If yes, I’d highly recommend you to try using makeup setting spray.

Makeup setting or fixing spray helps to increase the longevity of makeup products. By applying them on top of your makeup, it keeps the skin smooth, helps your makeup to stay longer and prevents from transferring. Accordingly, the sale of makeup setting spray has been significantly increasing since the pandemic started, and it’s becoming our new beauty essential.

In this article, I’d like to introduce some of the best Japanese makeup setting sprays that help your makeup to be transfer-proof and long-wearing.
