I use this foundation for almost every photo shoot I do and so far, I have no complaints! It photographs beautifully and covers well without looking heavy or cakey! I personally do not wear it because I have oily skin and I need a matte finish, whereas this foundation is satin. But for most other skin types, its perfection! Attached is an unedited photo of a model I did so you can see what I mean!
i bought this thinking that it would be the best foundation in the world!But i recently found out that this is mostly for oily skin!I have dry skin!So i gave it to my bff because she has oily skin and she cannot afford this.I helped her apply it with a stippling brush and all the acne that she had "disapeerd" into thin air i was amazing how her skin looked SOOO flawless!She was soo happy!
The product goes on initially amazing, but with in 30 mins it looks like a hot mess on my slightly oily skin. It is amazing for those with dry or normal skin. Oily skin, be warned.
This foundation is fabulous because it already has silicone incorporated in it so it glides on easily. The light reflecting particles in this HD foundation works wonders for fashion and beauty photography. I reccomend #117, #128 & #178 for beginning MUAs to carry in their kits and custom create colors out of those three. I used MUFE HD foundation on the model in the photo attached.
I initially purchased this foundation because I needed it on set for a movie that was being filmed. This was one of the only HD foundations I could find in the area at short notice. It was a bit expensive, but it was well worth it. It did well with reducing shine and the coverage was great. It's medium to full coverage. I was very satisfied with the results I received on set so I also used it on several clients for photoshoots and weddings. I love the flawless, natural finish it gives. I even use it for myself from time to time.
I was a HARD CORE Mac Studio Fix Fluid fan. Not only do I have SEVERE discoloration on my face, but I also have unwanted facial hair that I feel the need to cover with my foundation and I simply resigned myself a long time ago that I was just going to have to cake it on in order to solve this problem. Not true with this foundation. Not only does it have AMAZING coverage in just one pump, but it also feels like nothing is on my skin. I also throw in some of the Makeup Forever Elixir to add some moisture and my skin feels AMAZING when I take it off @ night. No dryness, no irritation, just flawless skin :)
Liquid foundations and I have a love hate relationship. I used liquid back in high school but couldnt find a good colour match - plus I wanted more coverage. I have been using cream foundation since makeup school but really wanted to try liquid foundation again. I went into Sephora and tried a few but once I sampled the Makeup Forever HD foundation I stopped looking. The colour match was extraordinary. I have never been able to find any foundation that so perfectly matches my skin colour right out of the bottle, which is evident in the photo as I had to circle where I had applied the foundation because otherwise you couldnt see it! Usually I have to buy two and mix them and at their price I couldn't afford to do that.
The price always seems to be a downside; this sells for about $40US and $46CDN, compared to MAC's foundations, MAC is about $10 cheaper, and MAC comes with an spf in most of theirs which might be a downside to some, but I react badly to sunscreen so it's definitely a pro for me.
I applied it right after I got home and it looked fantastic on my skin, coverage was pretty sheer though you can build but I just mixed cream concealer with the liquid foundation and added that to the places I needed more coverage. (which I recommend if you are looking for more coverage in specfic areas. If you are looking for more coverage liquid foundation is probably not your best bet, as liquids tend to provide sheer coverage, try a cream foundation if you are looking for something with a lot of coverage and if applied properly can still look flawless and light) About an hour later I decided to do my eyes and when I looked at my face in the bright lights I noticed that my skin didn't look nearly as good as it did when I put it on. It had settled into all my fine lines (and made me notice some I didn't even know I had!) I wasn't too happy about that, as I felt I looked a little worse for wear instead of flawless like I had intially. Not one to give up I tried it the next few days with different techniques and powders. All the same results, but complete with little bumps all around my cheeks and jaw. Apparently my sensitve skin couldnt handle the liquid foundation seeping into my skin as it did. Still not wanting to give up on liquid foundation all together I decided to buy a primer. (Smashbox's photo finish colour correcting in green.) With the primer the foundation was honestly so much better. It stopped the foundation from seeping into the fine lines in my face and causing bumps. Though even with the primer I find I have to exfoliate my skin every few days to avoid any more bumps or breakouts, but I have extreme sensitive skin (I'm allergic to most bubble baths and sunscreen!) and most people won't have the same skin reactions to this as I do,though I still recommend a primer with the liquid foundation to stop from seeping into fine lines.
I do like the pump compared to liquid foundations that you have to pour. It's a lot easier to use and you have better control over how much product comes out. Plus if you bump it over it won't spill out.
Overall if you are looking for a good liquid foundation with a wide range of colour choices I would definitely recommend this. But as I said before if you looking for something with a lot of coverage go with a cream over a liquid.
it made my dry parts flaky and would quickly rub off of my t-zone. the color range and consistency and coverage is great but it didnt work for my skin. what i dont understand is that it didnt work on my dry skin, I thought this was good for that?
I got this product in the shade 110 Pink Porcelain. I have combination to oily skin but this foundation feels really good on my skin, doesn't clog the pores and has an amazing coverage. When I use it, it feels like I don't have anything on my skin. Though I have to say, it looks much better on camera (hence the name) than in person but the coverage is still very natural. It hides my acne scars and hyperpigmentations perfectly, I just simply don't like to use a full coverage foundation on a daily basics. However this is my go to going out foundation! :)
