While the dust from Beyoncé’s epic Coachella performance has started to somewhat settle, there’s one thing we still can’t stop thinking about: how did her makeup stay in place and not transfer throughout a two-hour performance?
We absolutely live for a good beat, but like everyone, we hate how it can end up on our favorite top or how it starts to melt off with even the smallest bit of humidity. And while Bey’s makeup artist, Sir John, says he doesn’t use setting spray, the rest of us need something to keep our makeup in place.
If you’re not familiar with setting spray, think of it like a powder used to lock your finished look into place. We’ve tested lots of them and we’ve rounded up our favorites. Here are nine we recommend to keep your look in place like Bey.
