Shopping

We glamazons have a lot of things to do, and that includes long days where we sometimes only have time to apply our makeup once! But, when you’ve got the ultimate beauty secret, aka a dynamite setting spray, then once is enough. Whether it’s out on the gritty streets, in the boardroom all day, or even chilling in the sun wearing your Oliver Peoples sunglasses, you want to look your best for the longest, and with minimal effort, right? We’ve chosen our top setting sprays we rely on to ensure the makeup we’ve applied in the AM stays on our faces perfectly well into the PM.

NYX Makeup Setting Spray (Matte/Dewy)

Makeup guru Christine Cho recommends NYX as one of her go-to choices for setting sprays. A beauty bargain at $10, these sprays come in dewy or matte depending on what look you want for your flawless finish. The lightweight spray goes on easily and comfortably lasts for hours.

Makeup Forever Mist and Fix Setting Spray

Christine’s other top choice is Makeup Forever’s Mist and Spray. Ideal for those who tend to touch their faces throughout the day (guilty perpetual eye-rubber right here!) this rub-proof and sweat-proof spray lasts for up to 12 hours. It also ensures that skin doesn’t dry out!

Urban Decay De-slick Oil Control Makeup Setting Spray

If you’re on the shinier side of things, this setting spray is for you. Urban Decay comes to the aid of oily-skinned beauties everywhere with their Urban Decay De-slick Spray. It’s weightless and powerful and will keep you looking gorgeously matte all-day long. An added bonus? It’s vegan too!

Caudalie Beauty Elixir

We’re big fans of Caudalie at Haute Appetite. The all-natural French beauty brand is host to so many multi-purpose products we use on the regular. Their Beauty Elixir is no exception. A deliciously scented mist with grape extracts, this spray not only sets makeup but also refreshed dull faces and tightens the appearance of pores. Just magical.

Laura Geller Set-n-Stay

The highly-rated Set-n-Stay spray by Laura Geller is ideal for summer and winter seasons alike. The mist keeps your skin hydrated for the drier winter months but is also formulated to prevent melting or caking that the summer months tend to bring. The mineral rich spray is also lightweight and smells lovely.

Do you usually shop online? Clothing, shoes, electronics, perfume, accessories, food, everything goes. But do you know how to buy online safely? Discover our tips for buying online serenely.

  1. Secure browsing

When you decide to buy online, it’s best to be at home or somewhere with a secure internet connection. Promote a secure home network. Indeed, this will limit the risks of identity theft, theft of banking information and others. To reduce the risk, do not hesitate to use a powerful anti-virus, updated of course. With the ebay Shopping offers the deals are effective.

  1. E-reputation

Choosing the sites you want to buy online is also essential. Indeed, there are many fraudulent platforms whose sole purpose is to extort money, or make you pay for an object you will never see the color. If you doubt a site, follow your instincts and make no payments or give your banking information. You can always inquire on different forums or Facebook group to have the opinions of consumers who have previously dealt with these sites.

Finally, be aware that online sales platforms have the legal obligation to be transparent. They must clearly display on their website the following information: identity, professional activity, characteristics of goods and services offered, price (not to mention taxes and delivery fees), as well as payment and exchange terms or the validity of the offer. For more information on the subject, you can visit the Europa portal .

  1. Secure payments

In order to increase the security of online payments, Mastercard and Visa have implemented a system: 3D Secure, also called “Verified by Visa” and “SecureCode” (Mastercard). Its clear objective is to avoid credit card fraud and bank identity theft. So, find out if your credit card has this extra protection or not.

  1. Using a credit card with purchase insurance

Today, there are many financial institutions offering credit cards offering various insurance purchases. Opting for the right card will allow you to be protected in case of credit card fraud or when shopping online. Thus, you will often hear about “Safe Online”, ensuring the total repayment of goods purchased within the European Union or the United States. Some even have a warranty extension of up to 24 months from the expiry of the legal manufacturer’s warranty.The point D of our guide details you all.

Find your shopping insurance card

If, despite all these precautions, you are the subject of bank fraud or impersonation, you must urgently react as quickly as possible. To do this, call Card Stop to block your credit card, go to the police station to make a statement and return your bank fraudulent expense. And do not forget: buying online can be risky so be careful!
