After watching many videos on YouTube, reading a few articles and reading comments on Amazon and MakeupAlley about Skindinavia’s “The Makeup Finishing Spray Bridal” I purchased and I tried this makeup setting spray.
There are a lot of good reviews on this makeup setting spray, so I was excited to try it. I have really oily skin so I try to find products that help to keep my makeup in place and looking fresh longer.
Finishing sprays like those sold by Skindinavia helps remove the ghostly appearance of powder when too much is applied and most importantly supposed to help prolong the wear of makeup.

Skindinavia Bridal Spray Directions
For Best Result – Shake well. Apply over makeup. Spray 2-4 times in an “X” and “T” formation.
For my first trial, I followed the directions to the “T”. After my result was so disappointing I ditched the directions and went crazy spraying on my face for the other applications.
However, going crazy did not help prolong my makeup either. By going overboard some product got on my hair and my hair wasn’t too happy. It made my hair rough and dry. So make sure your hair is completely out-of-the-way before using this product.
Skindinavia Bridal Spray Scent
This product has a clean and light scent; it disappears within seconds. If you tried “Model in a Bottle” you will appreciate the light and clean scent of this product.
Skindinavia Bridal Spray Claims
The product claims to: “The Makeup Finishing Spray – Specifically designed to resist the effects of excess moisture, our Bridal mist helps keep makeup looking flawless and photo-ready. Absorbs quickly and lasts for up to 16 hours. For all skin types.”
“Specifically designed to resist the effects of excess moisture”
It controlled moisture for the first 30 minutes then my shine and grease took over and the makeup started transferring and disappearing.
“Bridal mist helps keep makeup looking flawless and photo-ready”
Initially, the bridal spray seals the makeup but it does not control shine nor prevent the oil from penetrating through the makeup. I hoped the product would live up to the hype but fell flat for me.
I tried this product for different occasions and environmental conditions also using different products hoping it would work, but it didn’t. However, this product really helps bring your makeup to life.
Your eyeshadow, blush and highlighter colors will be more vibrant after using this spray. If you applied too much powder it will correct it. If you didn’t blend your makeup properly it may correct it. This finishing spray works like Mac Fix Plus but creates a matte look instead of a dewy look.
“Absorbs quickly and lasts for up to 16 hours”
It does absorb quickly into the skin. The product sprays a fine mist, so after one minute the product completely disappears. The mist from spray does not ruin the makeup. The spray nozzle on this makeup setting spray is fantastic. When the bottle is empty I will keep it to use for other products.
As for lasting for 16 hours – it didn’t even last more than 30 minutes on me. After 30 minutes I started blotting and reapplying translucent powder as I normally do. I used the product with Nars Sheer Matte, and Covergirl Queen Collection All Day Flawless Foundation.
Both are matte foundations but using this Skindinavia’s finishing spray with them didn’t improve their staying power. I read this makeup setting spray works great with the Mac Studio Fix foundation so I will give it a try to see if it works.
“For all skin types.”
Not necessary for all skin types. It did not last on my oily skin. If you have normal skin this might be your “holy grail” product. If you love Mac Fix Plus but you’re looking for a product to help your makeup last a little longer and you don’t have oily skin then you may consider giving this a try.
For oily girls just beware, because this is not what it is made out to be. I will not repurchase because it did not help my oily skin situation the way I wanted it to. After trying Skindinavia “The Makeup Finishing Spray Bridal” I know now without a doubt that I need to repurchase Model in the Bottle for my oily skin.
