Arguably one of the worst parts of putting time into a makeup look — whether a quick, natural face or a full, YouTube-inspired beat — is the risk of it all coming off before you even make it to lunch. Lucky for us, though, setting sprays exist, and they’re the key to making whatever you put on your face last all day. But how to know you’ve found the right one?

“A good setting spray should be able to set your makeup so it is non-transferable on clothing, but still looks natural,” says Rick DiCecca, creative director of makeup design for Artistry by Amway and a makeup artist whose clients include Heidi Klum and Iman. “The foundation of a setting spray should combat oil and shine, while also hydrating your skin to prevent dryness.”

Ahead, DiCecca and a handful of other pros weigh in on 11 of the best makeup setting sprays out there for every price range.

Cover FX Mattifying Setting Spray, $31, available here. This quick-drying, mattifying formula is designed to provide all-day shine control while still allowing skin to look fresh and hydrated. It’ll keep makeup in place without any stickiness or moisture sapping.
