Skindinavia Setting Spray Bridal Formula #FOTD

I chose this finish in particular because I love when skin looks alive and this one in particular was supposed to impart a fully made up face with a nice "real skin" glow. There is an original formula and oil-control formula as well.

I recently attended a graduation ceremony for 2 of my brothers and thought it might be the perfect opportunity to test out the Skindinavia Bridal setting spray I purchased for my kit not long ago. I knew it would be hot, humid, emotional (tears!) and just incredibly ideal for giving this wonder product a whirl! I'd heard such great things (and watched GossMakeupArtist's lovely vid on it HERE which really spurred me to purchase - check him out he's a favorite of mine), but as you all know, I'm incredibly picky and have to test things for myself before forming a final opinion.

This is a completely untouched photo so you can see the finish it left my skin with in sunlight.

My Thoughts

The setting spray did a fabulous job of leaving my fully made up face  looking natural and "alive". I personally don't like a totally matte finish because it tends to look a little fake or flat to me. This formula not only gave my skin a hint of life-like glow, but it resulted in very minimal fading after hours of heat and humidity. I posted a picture on instagram on my way to the ceremony and 7 hours later after everything had ended. I have to say, I'm impressed! 

I'll be testing it out a few more events before I'm completely sold, but so far it's been great! Skindinavia offers several formulas, including one that will help mattify your face for those with oily skin. You can view them at
