Easy DIY makeup setting spray recipe

1. Start with vegetable glycerin 

Add 3 teaspoons of vegetable glycerin to a glass bowl. I know that sounds really weird, but this ingredient is actually super accessible at many stores.

2. Add in witch hazel 

Add 2 teaspoons of witch hazel to the glass bowl. 

We are using cucumber-scented witch hazel, but you can use whichever scents you would like. Or, add in your own essential oils later.

3. Add in aloe gel

Add 1 teaspoon of aloe gel to the glass bowl. The aloe ingredient is a very important part of the actual setting process. 

We like to make the spray in small batches but if you want more you can double this recipe.

4. Mix to combine 

Mix the mixture with a spoon until all the ingredients are well combined. The mixture should be liquidy with some chunks.

5. Pour the mixture into the bottle 

For storing the setting spray you can use an old spray bottle or buy a new one. We prefer to use a small one so that you can store it in your makeup bag.  

Carefully pour the mixture into the bottle.
