Sometimes the simplest beauty tips are the best.

How much it costs: The much-beloved Badescu spray retails for $7 at Ulta.
How much you save: The price difference between facial mists can be significant: The two mentioned here differ by $42.
Most of us have had the experience of carefully applying makeup only to find that, upon final inspection, it looks dry and cakey. Gina Way, a veteran beauty writer, suggests trying a face mist makeup hack that works for her.
"As a finishing touch — to make my skin look fresh and totally un-makeup-y — after I've applied makeup, I rinse my hands with ice-cold water," she said. "Then I towel-dry them so they're slightly damp. Then, I spritz a face mist, like Caudalie Beauty Elixir ($49), on one palm, clap my hands together and place them lightly over my face and neck. This adds the tiniest bit of moisture and radiance."
