    L’oreal Infallible Freshwear 120 True Beige – FLASH REVIEW

To set makeup, to make your foundation look “natural”, mimic an hour of sweat. Do make-up settings really work? Are they really more than just water? Today on the blog I’ll share with you my favorite makeup setting sprays that actually do the job and more. But first!   What is a Makeup Setting Spray?
