I Put 3 Makeup Setting Sprays to the Test During a Sweaty Musical Festival - Here's What Held Up

PopSugar Logo By Samantha Sasso of PopSugar | Slide 1 of 7: BUY NOW$20 Makeup setting sprays help prevent makeup from smudging or transferring. They are especially important during music festivals when you are sweating. These before and afters show how well three new setting sprays worked.  For nearly 900 days, I've been in a musical drought. Two years have gone by without having the chance to set foot near a concert barricade, let alone spend an entire weekend at a music festival. Then as vaccinations continued to roll out, Governors Ball was announced, my wristbands arrived in the mail, and it rained - so to speak. Finally, I had three full days of music ahead of me, but even after all this time, I felt unprepared when handling a weekend-packed outing like this. The best-laid plans can often go awry, but I was determined to equip myself with everything I needed to have a memorable and melt-proof weekend, like a comfortable outfit, a refillable water bottle, and a setting spray. Lucky for me, the setting-spray landscape is evolving rapidly, most likely because of masks. More and more, I hear from friends who never once thought a setting spray was necessary asking to borrow a few spritzes before going to dinner. Bottom line, they're effective and my Governors Ball survival secret. Here's the thing: you have no idea if a setting spray is worth it until you use it, so I put three new formulas to the test while galavanting through a vaccinated and tested crowd of fellow music-lovers. Ahead, see my results and the one spray that proved to be practically magic.
