The Best Setting Sprays for Oily Skin, Hands Down

Perhaps the most challenging part of having an oily complexion is keeping shine at bay throughout the day. After all, you worked so hard to perfect a silky smooth, matte makeup look, so nothing is worse than oil creeping through and making it slip and slide. Ahead, we rounded up six of our absolute favorite setting sprays for oily skin that are sure to keep you looking grease-free. 


Urban Decay All Nighter Ultra Matte Setting Spray

As if we didn’t love the O.G. Urban Decay All Nighter formula enough, we’re excited to say that we love the new Ultra Matte version even more. This long-lasting setting spray works just like the original but promises to mattify and keep your look shine-free for 16 hours. Trust us, you won’t want to go a day without it. 

NYX Professional Makeup Matte Finish Setting Spray

The Matte Finish Setting Spray by NYX Professional Makeup is a cult-fave for good reason. It’s extremely comfortable to wear and can mattify your complexion whether you’re rocking a full beat or just some tinted moisturizer. 

Maybelline New York Lasting Fix Setting Spray

Lasting Fix is another solid option for oily skin because it locks in makeup for up to 16 hours and controls shine. The best part? You only need one or two spritzes for day-long hold.

Volition Beauty Oil-Control Mattifying Mist

For a mattifying mist that works to refresh the face, try the Volition Beauty Mattifying Mist. This setting spray has a velvety finish that looks like you just touched up with powder without actually having to do so. 

Lancôme Fix It Forget It Setting Spray

Fix it and Forget It helps keep makeup looking fresh for 24 hours. It’s completely sweatproof and also contains hyaluronic acid and vitamin C for skin-smoothing protection.

Ben Nye Final Seal Matte Sealer

Final Seal by Ben Nye is a costume makeup secret weapon, and once you apply it, your makeup will not budge no matter how oily you get. This is the powerful stuff to break out on a special occasion.
