5 Tips You Should Know About MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation

MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation Review

Despite several impressive products of other brands, this Mac Studio Fix is one of the best-pressed powder foundations.

With its particularly velvety, silky texture, It will you an excellent experience of applying and blending. You could try both wet and dry applications. As usual, the dry one provides light to medium-full coverage. However, you may face the risk of a cakey with the wet one. It feels good when you are not wearing a lot of makeup and want some light coverage, and this product allows your skin to breathe.

If your skin type is typical, to some degree, oily or dry, I would highly recommend this product. Even though the shades are in some way repetitive, all of the colors are remarkable for a broad range of skin tones.

Available in a wide range of colors.

How to..

Apply to skin using a sponge or desired brush.

Blend with fingers, sponge, or brush.

Tips:

  1. before applying the powder foundation, add some essence and eye cream on your foundation brush, and lightly blend it on your face. In this way, the brush absorbs the moisturizing ingredients and mixes it up with the foundation you apply, which will make the look much natural.
  2. To make the powder foundation thinner and fits, you need a special flat top brush. MAC has this 196 Slanted Flat Top Foundation Brush, and this is what I currently use. It has a flat slanted top, which could make the foundation reaches every contour of your face. Unlike the sponge blenders, this brush features the ultra-smooth short bristles which would not absorb most of your foundation. It is the perfect tool for water weight foundations.
  3. Firstly apply the powder evenly on your entire face, then continue to use the same brush to conceal the troublesome spots. Use a regular sponge to press it lightly will lift the cover, and not feeling heavy on your face.
  4. You don’t have to brush the finishing powder all over your face. Instead, try to apply a small amount only on the oily part of your face.

Hints:

  • Hot colors for Asian: NC20 NC25.
  • If you have light skin, you should try NC15 and NC20.
  • Avoid these colors due to pink, orange, or peach: C6, NC42, NW25, NW30, NW40, and NC40.
  • All shade with NC or C is a yellow undertone, which is my choice.
  • NW or W is a pink undertone.
  • If you have dry skin, it is better to do moisturizing before applying.
