Another bonus? Our NEW setting spray is quick-drying, non-sticky and ultra hydrating so even if you’re not doing a full glam look, this spray feels like a true treat for your skin.  

Below, find our top products for completing any makeup look whether you’re going for a barely-there vibe or a full-face approach. These finishing touches will help you glow, set and lock in all of your hard work – no matter what the day has in store.  


Whether you’re a liquid, cream or powder highlighter fan, this finishing touch is crucial for anyone looking to create a radiant complexion. While you can mix highlighter with foundation or apply before you start building your base, for a statement glow and a healthy radiance, we suggest applying highlighter once the rest of your makeup has been completed. For your final highlight application, use a Fan Brush and apply all over or, for a more targeted look, use a Blender Brush and apply highlighter to the high points of the face for a strobe-like glow. Looking for dewy makeup inspiration?

What may be considered a 2021 problem, our Hydra Setting Spray also prevents makeup transfer onto fabrics such as face coverings and masks. The best part?
