DIY Mac Fix plus / Setting Spray dupe

Scroll down to content

There is a simple -yet magic- recipe that is gonna turn your high-end setting spray almost into a useless product(!).

The natural ingredients of this DIY setting spray give a really dewy finish and help a lot on easy blending on foundation and concealer.

Comparing this to MAC Mineralize Charged Water (which I bought as MAC Fix plus has been always out of stock), it’s definately a win-win-win! I find the DIY setting spray’s scent much more sweet and natural -definately not chemical- and it is also much more helping on giving a luminous base that comes from within as it offers high hydration.

You can use it prior your foundation and before you blend the liquid products on your face in order to avoid a cakey finish and light/sheer the texture of any heavy foundation.


What you will need:

  • Water (2 parts)
  • Glycerin (1 part)
  • Rose water (1 part)
  • Spray bottle

For a rose water-free version use 3 parts water and 1 part glycerin. If you have really oily skin, you can use more water and rose water and less glycerin.

It will feel even fresher on the face and last longer, if you keep it in your fridge. It’s preferable to use small spray bottles -as well- in order to be able to carry it in you makeup bag, everyday bag etc.

Overall, I am super satisfied by the quality of this DIY product which cost me -in total- less than 10 euros (rosewater 3,5 euros, glycerin 3,30 euros and bottle 2,50 euros) and also having the opportunity to create maaany mL of setting spray for such a low price.

Let me know if you try this recipe 🙂
