DIY Finishing/Fixing Spray

DIY Finishing/Fixing Spray

Not only is this DIY version waaaaaaaay cheaper than any store bought finishing spray.

It also works a lot better than most of the expensive ones out there. On my face anyway.

The ones that I’ve used so far (yes, including MAC Fix +) made my face look shiny. And not a little shiny, no. The ‘you could see your reflection in my forehead’-kind of shiny. Not really a look that I usually go for.

This DIY spray does it all. It ‘finishes’ your look, whilst preventing and smoothing out any caking you might have going on. It keeps your skin moisturized all day long and makes your makeup last a lot longer!

What you’ll need:

  • an empty spraying bottle
  • 3/4 part blossom water (or distilled water)
  • 1/4 part aloe vera gel (or 1/8 vegetable glycerin)


Fill 1/4 of the empty spray bottle with aloe vera gel.  Fill the rest of the bottle up with the water. Shake well. That’s it!

If you’re using glycerin, use less (about 1/8). Glycerine is a beautiful, yet sticky ingredient!

Keep it in the fridge for a longer shelf life. This spray can keep up to a week when kept with care.

Spray liberally on your made up face. Or just use it as a cooling, refreshing spray.
