Some people think face mists are just fancy water in pretty packaging. We strongly beg to differ. Face mists are some of the most versatile products in beauty, and there are valid reasons why everyone you know is obsessed with the stuff.
Hydrating your face whenever, wherever, is the mist’s most basic function. But with a little research, you’ll find that it’s a crucial and adaptable element in your skincare routine. Meaning, you can actually make use of it from start to finish! More info below.
1. USE IT TO TONE YOUR FACE
Face mists work as insta-moisturizers, but if you think about it, they closely resemble toners, too. Both mists and toners take the form of thin solutions, deliver instant hydration, and prep the skin to absorb product. In other words, you can use a great mist to streamline your regimen.
Pull double-duty with your favorite mist by soaking a cotton pad with it. Then, gently sweep the pad over a clean face. The cotton will provide light exfoliation, while the solution will pick up any residue left after cleansing.
2. USE IT TO DAMPEN YOUR MAKEUP SPONGE
Too lazy to get your hands wet? Use a face mist to dampen your makeup sponge on the spot! It’s a quick fix when you’re on the go and no faucets are in sight.
All you have to do is evenly spray your sponge from all angles. Do this until the sponge is as moist as you need it to be. Then, apply your makeup as usual. Besides being super convenient, the mist’s soothing properties will keep your skin feeling fresh throughout application.
3. USE IT TO SHEER OUT FOUNDATION
For an au naturel look, you can sheer out your base by diluting it with face mist. This lightens the coverage and lends the foundation a more skin-like finish.
First, dispense a dollop of liquid foundation onto the back of your hand. Spray your mist directly over it. Mix these two formulas together with your sponge or brush, and then apply your makeup as usual. You can use this method to thin out any type of liquid product and keep it from feeling too heavy.
4. USE IT TO ADD A 3D FINISH
If your makeup looks a little too matte, the right face mist can add a touch of radiance. Used as a finishing spray, it will coat your face in weightless moisture. This makes every layer of makeup meld into one seamless look and remedies that flat, one-dimensional finish. In the end, you get dewy, healthy-looking skin without a harsh line in sight!
