This DIY makeup setting spray works really, really well in hot and humid weather! Because of its ingredients it also hydrates, keeps oil away, and prevents breakouts.


  • 1 tbsp aloe vera gel
  • 1 tbsp witch hazel
  • 5 drops lavender essential oil
  • 2 1/2 tbsp distilled water
  • spray bottle


  1. In a small bowl, mix all ingredients together until blended well.
  2. Using a small funnel, pour your mixture into a spray bottle.

Using the DIY Makeup Setting Spray:

  1. After you’ve applied your makeup, hold the spray bottle a few inches away from your face and spray, using one or two pumps.
  2. Let air dry for a minute and you’re good to go!

Depending on how many pumps you use at a time, you should get about 15-20 applications.

The lavender in this spray is perfect for sensitive skin as it soothes any redness, while the witch hazel deals with breakouts and oily skin. Aloe vera gel is perfect for fine lines, wrinkles, scars and dark spots, as well as acne.

Use as often as needed!

Hi Joanne,

This recipe doesn’t require any preservatives as the ingredients used do actually act like a type of preservative. The most important thing with this recipe is that you use distilled water and it should be good to go for months 🙂
