It not only fixes your hair, it can fix your makeup too for over six hours. After finishing your makeup, spray it on your face. Also, another smart trick you can do with your regular hairspray, if you are at a party and find out that your stocking is tearing, you can spray a hair spray and it will stop it from further tear.

Since it’s cream based product, apart from smoothing your skin, it can double up as makeup remover. If you are having chapped lips, swipe a little body lotion on your lips to nourish them.
