2. To fix concealer creasing
Perhaps one of beauty best kept secrets, using a setting spray can effortlessly fix concealer creasing in an instant! Concealer tends to be a dense formula that easily creases below the eyes especially if you use full coverage. When this happens there’s no need to panic, simply spray your concealer brush with the setting spray and blend out the creases. This technique works especially well if you have dry skin or you’re not a fan of setting with powder. It also allows you to set your makeup in place without adding another layer of product preventing that dreaded cakey look.

Although pigments are a stunning way to transform your eye look, they can often create a lot of unwanted mess and take up precious time.
