Arguably one of the worst parts of putting time into a makeup look — whether a quick, natural face or a full, YouTube-inspired beat — is the risk of it all coming off before you even make it to lunch. Lucky for us, though, setting sprays exist, and they're the key to making whatever you put on your face last all day. But how to know you've found the right one?
