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

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.

Key Claims and Benefits

  • 8 hours long-wearing
  • Reduces the appearance of zits and pores
  • Controls oil and shine
  • Non-drying
  • For all skin types, especially oily skin
  • Easy applying
  • Photo-friendly

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.

Useful Advices Before You Buy Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

Take home our Better Than Sex mascara and all your desires for lush, incredibly intense lashes will befulfilled.

This is the very first advertising description for this mascara on the too faced website, and many top YouTubers have shared reviews of it.

The mascara has a waterproof and a regular version, and I prefer the normal one as I hate to remove waterproof mascaras.

It is a good one if you like long eyelashes, and it has a pretty hefty volume, which will make your eyes look bigger and brighter.

This is my experience for the first three-hour wearing, and here are the main things I want to talk about:

  • If you sweat easily and you don’t mind take more time to remove eye makeup, you should try the waterproof one.
  • I do not want to use this product outdoors in Summer as it is too hot.
  • As it has a substantial volume of 1,944% more, it will lead to tiny blocks on your lashes if you brush too many times.
  • It is a good mascara with naturally curly lashes, or else coarse and straight lashes will have little effect.

Mascara Details:

Illuminator Review of High Quality Anastasia Beverly Hills

Anastasia Beverly Hills Illuminator So Hollywood

About Anastasia Beverly Hills:

ABH is a leading global authority in cosmetics and beauty, and I could say that all its latest products are of high quality.

From my point of view, ABH is well-known for its brow products, almost every beauty blogger’s makeup bag has one of them.

Back in 2015, they brought out a set of long-wearing matte liquid lipsticks, which led to a matte lipstick trend as well.

Their eyeshadow palettes are also useful as hell.

Today I am going to talk about their illuminator, and I promise you won’t regret it if you have ever tried one of them.

ABH Illuminator is very famous around the world for its excellent impression.

Original ABH Illuminator:

It has three different shades on their website:

There is a fourth color: Starlight, which I believe is suitable for light pink skins and is mostly colorless.

So Hollywood is the most popular one, you could hardly buy it on their website as it is always out-of-stock.

Highlight Points:

– silky formula

– easy to apply

– gorgeous color range

– metallic sheen

Conclusion:

Starlight and Rivera are richly pigmented, and the finish is shiny, so it is better for light skins.

So Hollywood is the best choice for all skin colors, and PeachNector works well for dark skins.
