For us oily skin girls, summer brings shiny foreheads and makeup-melting weather. However, it doesn’t always have to be so! 

A simple setting spray is an easy-to-add addition to the makeup routine that can make a major difference to the longevity of our looks, specifically when we go for oily skin-specific sprays that leave us glowing – not shiny.

Now don’t go reaching for just any old setting spray because the wrong spritz could be the difference between an oil-free glow and disco-ball glam (and not in a good way).

To lend a helping hand we’re taking a look at our favourite picks for setting spray for oily skin ladies who want to lock down their makeup and say goodbye to shine.
