benefit is a brand loved by every beauty obsessive and for many of us is a staple in our makeup bags. They have now released a highly anticipated new addition to their POREfessional range that we can’t wait to get our hands on! Introducing The POREfessional: Super Setter, a multitasking makeup setting spray that instantly blurs pores and locks on makeup for an incredible 16 hours! 

The POREfessional: Super Setter not only helps perfect the look of makeup, but leaves your skin feeling smooth, refreshed and hydrated. The ultra-fine formula feels weightless on the skin and absorbs instantly to help reduce shine and minimise the look of pores. To help you out we’ve put together 5 ways to use the benefit POREfessional: Super Setter Setting Spray so you can get the most out of your new favourite product.  

5 ways to use the benefit POREFessional: Super Setter Setting Spray

1. As a primer

Although setting sprays tend to be the last step in your makeup routine, using them as a primer can prep your skin to perfection and can help your base stay in place for even longer. The POREFessional: Super Setter also helps to minimise the look of pores making it a great to use as a blurring primer. Simply spray the fine mist across your freshly cleansed and moisturised face and let it dry naturally before applying your foundation. The spray is also great to pair with other primers in the range such as the The Porefessional Hydrate Primer and The Porefessional Pearl Primer to help illuminate your base or boost hydration.

2. To fix concealer creasing

Perhaps one of beauty best kept secrets, using a setting spray can effortlessly fix concealer creasing in an instant! Concealer tends to be a dense formula that easily creases below the eyes especially if you use full coverage. When this happens there’s no need to panic, simply spray your concealer brush with the setting spray and blend out the creases. This technique works especially well if you have dry skin or you’re not a fan of setting with powder. It also allows you to set your makeup in place without adding another layer of product preventing that dreaded cakey look. 

3. To apply loose pigments

Although pigments are a stunning way to transform your eye look, they can often create a lot of unwanted mess and take up precious time. Setting spray is a great way to help you apply loose pigments with ease. Simply apply a spritz of the Super Setter spray onto a flat eyeshadow brush before dipping into your favourite pigment, this way the product will stick to the brush and you don’t have to worry about fallout. Apply to the centre point of your lid and press in until you get your desired effect. This is the perfect way to add a little sparkle, hassle free! 

4. To intensify your eyeshadows

Dampening your brush with setting spray is a fantastic way to transform the finish of your eye shadows so you can get the most out of your favourite palettes. All you need to do is spritz your brush and delve into your desired lid shade before applying it to your eye. This works best with shimmer and chrome shades to transform your shadow into a metallic finish. You can also use this technique to dampen down your shadows to turn them into an eyeliner that will last all day long.

5. To set and refresh your makeup

Last but by no means least, setting spray can be used to refresh your skin and set your makeup in place so it lasts as long as you do! With an intense staying power of up to 16 hours, the benefit POREfessional: Super Setter Setting Spray is the perfect last step in your makeup routine. Once all of your makeup is in place spray the fine mist all over your visage to ensure long-lasting wear. The spray is also great to use if you need a refreshing boost throughout the day without smuding your look.
