Mac foundation review

I recently put a few options on snap chat of some blog posts that you guys may be interested in me doing and product reviews was top of the list.

I have been going through a few foundations lately and I’ve not been too crazy about any of them so I am going to go back to some classics and what I use in my kit when I do make up for clients.

My two staples are from MAC (surprise surprise)

I use studio fix and face and body.

MAC studio fix:

This is my go to foundation for everyone. It’s my favourite and I nearly get nervous now using something different. It never fails. It’s my make up of choice always for bridal or occasion make up

Pros:
Long lasting
Great for all skin types
Medium to heavy coverage
Great for events and nights out
Huge colour selection

Cons:
It can sometimes be heavy for very dry skin types. I am dry and it works fine but if I feel it is going to be too thick and heavy I add a touch of liquid highlighter or a light weight moisturiser.

Don’t go too strong around the eyes either as it can settle in fine lines and wrinkles

MAC face and body:

This was the one product I was told to always have in my kit. I stocked up with a few shades delighted with myself. Every make up artist I had in training said this was THE foundation you had to have. But guess what?
I don’t get it guys. I rarely use it. It’s sheer and beautiful and light and should glide on to make skin look flawless but I can’t get it to work all the time. I have read other people say the same and have picked up some tips along the way.

Pros:
Very fluid and a little goes a long way
Lots of colour selection
Great for older skin types
Great for people who don’t wear lots of make up

Cons:
You need to layer it for more coverage
It’s not good for oily skins or else you need a good powder

I wore it once to the races and half way through the day it was all gone. I have worn it plenty of times since and no issues but I still prefer studio fix. The best tip I read from another blogger was to mix this in the palm of the hands. It applies so much better when warmed up and nearly gets tacky. So now if I use it on clients I get handsy and apply with hands and fingers and use a brush or sponge towards the end.

Mac have a huge selection of foundations but the studio fix will be my all time favourite.

Let me know if you have a favourite
