Let’s be honest.. the summer weather is an avid makeup wear-er’s worst enemy; it takes multiple primers and a ton of blotting papers to keep our face in tact throughout the day. My previous routine included a silicon-based primer that clogged my pores like no other, yet kept me matte for about 5 hours, which is next-to nothing. It was a love-hate relationship, but mostly hate once the sun’s rays hit my face and my makeup nearly melted off! (Plus, I totally broke out and my face felt sticky and gross!)
Anyone that knows me knows that once I find a holy-grail product, I rave on and on… So here it goes: Skindinavia Priming Spray and Skindinavia Finishing Spray are the key to solving all of these problems!
Inspired by the glitter and dancing that makes up Miami’s wildly exotic nightlife, Skindinavia (by Allen Goldman) is celebrating their 10th anniversary this year. Used by professional makeup artists everywhere, Skindinavia’s lightweight, skin-breathing mists can set liquid or powder makeup, and holds it in place for a cool 16 hours. Even cooler? NO SILICON! The brand expanded its original makeup setting spray to a makeup priming spray that balances the oils in the skin and evens out skintone, as well as minimizing the appearance of large pores. Not only do professionals love it, so do performers on tour, such as Lady Gaga herself!
After receiving a generous sample to try, I have to say, I’m in love. First, I use the priming spray. Then, I apply my makeup, and apply the setting spray last. From early morning to late afternoon, my makeup still looks fresh, new, and matte, despite the super warm weather we have been experiencing in NYC! Even I was in awe how my makeup still looked so fresh after sweating! Check out some of my “9 Hours after application + in 90 Degree Weather” photos I’ve been documenting below to see how amazing these duo primer/setting sprays are!

Skindinavia’s Primer Spray and Skindinavia Finishing Spray have become part of my daily routine, whether I’m doing a “full face” or not, because it leaves my face feeling “fresh” instead of “greasy” all day, every day! Added bonus: they don’t break me out either!
What are you waiting for?! You need to try the Duo now!!
