my summer foundation
Love this foundation, especially in the summer. Give me a dewy look that holds up to humidity. Best applied with fingers imo, though I've used buffing brush and beauty blender as well. The brush gave me streaky results, but that could just be my lack of skill, lol.
I like my foundation to go on quick and easy, this does that and looks great too. I've tried bb creams, and just like Face and Body more.
I wanted a foundation that provided light coverage, had a 2nd skin feeling, and looked natural and decided to give this a try after seeing countless raves and reviews on youtube and blogs. I really enjoy it! It feels so nice on the skin, blends in seamlessly, and provides a light natural finish on the skin. I don't recommend it if you have a lot of dark marks or blemishes on your face, unless you use a lot of concealer after, but if you are looking for what I described this is it! It wears so nice in the summer/heat because it is water resistant and has a very watery texture that is easy to blend. I wish there where a few more shades available but other then that Mac did good.
So I have 4 Face and Body foundations C1, C6, N1 and N7. These are for my make up kit, I personally love these foundations they are light but have a good coverage and are great for photoshoots. As the foundations are so light you can easily build it up and it doesn't look caked on. Its also good for most skin types, so it's a good all rounder. However the foundations are so watery even when shaken, I don't mind this but I know many people who don't like the consistency of it. There are ways to thicken the foundation; you can cup the foundation it your palm and move the foundation around with your fingers until thickened. You can also leave the lids off over night which slightly thickens the foundations. As for the shades I tend to mix the colours up to get the perfect shade, but any MAC counter girls will be able to pick out the best shade for you :) x
GREAT FOR DRY SKIN
This foundation will always be a must-have for me. It is the best foundation for dry skin as the product is more water-based and gives a dewy, yet natural, finish. I love that the foundation is buildable without looking cakey and after setting it with MAC's Skinfinish Natural, I am good to go! The large 4 oz. bottle is also a great value for your money, but MAC also has a smaller bottle for purchase if you do not use foundation on a daily basis :)
I decided to try this foundation out because I am thinking about adding it to my kit. I currently use a matte foundation and RCMA. I have really dry skin-most foundations look "cakey" if I'm not careful. This foundation made me glow!! I was able to build in areas that needed more coverage. I will definitely be adding more colors to my kit!!
It is very sheer but it is beautiful. It has a nice build able coverage, evens out the fin tone, and leaves a true dewey finish. Usually dewy ends up looking oily but not this foundation. This one you really only need powder on your tzone and your set!
Sheer but buildable radiance!
I was so, so, so skeptical to purchase this. I have a bad history of break outs and very sensitive skin and from things I have heard MAC seems to break out a lot of people... but I was looking for a sheer foundation with great reviews and this kept coming up.. and I really have always loved MAC but from a distance so I got the courage to get my butt to Macy's and spent the $30 something on what was to become my new summer love <3 And it has, I truly love everything about this, you can wear it super sheer or builds up so easily for more coverage. Its radiant and dewy but not oily, its water based (which I prefer) but stays put and it looks great in photos. What else can I say but i'm in love and getting the courage to go back for more! :)
When I first bout this foundation I thought it was horrible and I returned it. I decided to give it a try again and apply it with a stippling brush and it looked beautiful !! It's very little coverage but I love how it gives my skin a even skin tone. I also use it with Pro long wear concealer and mineralized skin finish powder. You absolutely have to use this foundation with a powder or it won't set and it will appear greasy.
