    How do these sprays and setters stand up to intense sweating? I mean, constant forhead sweat and blotting of the forehead?

    I used both & my makeup lasted all night (with a primer too). I used the ELF Hi-Def finishing powder & the Urban Decay De-Slick setting spray.  Ibought a tiny trail bottle of the de-slick and after using it for the wedding I REALLY wish I had bought the full size bottle- that stuff is pretty amazing!

    I was pretty sweaty all day/night as got married on the beach in Mexico & I have combo skin (oily in the T-zone, generally dry in all other areas)….

    @musician32992: Best stuff ever!  I found it after a blogger did a review online about it.

    Powder is better for oily skin. If you have normal skin, use a setting spray. Powder lasts for 2-4 hours~, setting spray will last longer.

    @Modestia1991:  Not sure what brand was used but when my MUA did mine she used a primer before the foundation and a setting spray after…. it was like 30 degrees and the limo had broken air con… my makeup was PERFECT the whole day from (9am-2am) even though I felt like I must have looked like a melting candle!!!

    +1 Urban Decay “All Nighter” setting spray – a colleague recommended this to me. She swears by it and now I do too! Love it!

    I love the laura mercier setting powder. It’s amazing as it gives your face a beautiful natural finish, no matter color or skin type. It’s not inexpensive, but it’s totally worth it as quality is very high and you get A LOT for your money.
