Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray

Urban Decay All Nighter

Wedding festivities go on from morning until night, so when evening rolls around and your makeup is still perfectly in place, you'll be thankful you took two second to spritz this. It's basically like super glue for makeup.

Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk
