You know what sucks? Spending hours on your makeup before a night out—aka penciling in your brows and making sure your cat eye is clean—only to have it fade and smudge before you’ve even had your first shot of tequila. Seriously, though, what’s the point of nailing your contour if it doesn’t even last you through the night? That’s exactly why I tell everyone that they need to add a setting spray to their routine. I mean, it makes sense: Setting sprays are formulated with long molecules (called polymers) that basically protect your makeup from all the elements (think: heat and humidity). And though you’re probably thinking this magical product has to be mad expensive, you’ll be happy to know that there are actually tons of drugstore setting sprays that get the job done (and keep your skin soft and hydrated) without blowing your budget.
Keep reading to peep the nine best drugstore setting sprays that’ll keep your makeup from sliding off your face this summer.
