Easy DIY–Hydrating Makeup Setting Spray (For Oily Skin)

Hello loves!

So I’m tired of running to the store to get setting spray for my makeup. I run through it like water! So after doing some research I was able to make an easy DIY spray with some ingredients that were already in my bathroom!

Now I know the title sounds conflicting, but hear me out.

What you’ll need:


-Alcohol-Free Witch Hazel (mine consists of distilled rose water)

-Alcohol-Free Aloe Vera Gel

-Small Empty Spray Bottle (I reused one from my ELF Mist & Set)


Water is of course hydrating alone, but only goes so far on the skin. It’ll act as the main ingredient to help mix the other two ingredients together.

Witch Hazel:

Witch Hazel has been around for a really long time and can help prevent and heal skin problems such as:

  • Acne
  • Sores
  • Redness
  • Oily Skin (helps to balance skins natural oils)

My favorite is Thayer’s Witch Hazel w/Rose Pedal

It consists of distilled (or purified) rose water which is also great for acne and redness, as well as being an anti-agent and anti-inflammatory.

Aloe Vera Gel:

Aloe vera gel is great for soothing the skin, also treating acne, aging, and is a great source of moisture for the skin while absorbing excess oils in the process. I use the Fruit of the Earth Alcohol-Free Aloe Vera Gel.

The bottle that I used is 2.02 oz. so I mixed 1 part witch hazel, 1 part aloe vera gel, and 3 parts water. I shook it up and it was ready for use. If you want a cool and refreshing mist, then feel free to let it sit in your refrigerator. Not only is it great as a setting spray, but for daily skin hydration as well.
