On my Youtube channel, tons of people ask me about the differnces between MAC foundation formulas. This video highlights many of my favorites! MAC got rid of Select Tint, but added Studio Sculpt. This new foundation is picture perfect, medium to full coverage, and works wonders for those with normal or dry skin. Oily girls, proceed with caution! This tore my face up for over a week. It was just wrong. Here are a few more FAQ’s and answers.
What’s the difference between the MAC concealers?
Studio Finish-Full coverage, will cover everything if you apply it the right way. LOVE this. Sort of a “cake” concealer, you need to break it down to use it.
Moisturecover-Very moisturizing, great for dry skin and under eye.
Studio Touch-Up Stick-This is a creamy pencil, basically “draw” over anything you want to cover and blend. Very handbag friendly.
Studio Stick– Convenient, gives medium to high coverage, very natural looking.
Select Cover Up-Dries to a satin/opaque finish with a medium coverage. Great alternative to wearing foundation.
Studio Sculpt-Super creamy with medium to full coverage. Looks flawless on the skin. Great for dry skin. Can be a HUGE problem for oily skin. I speak from experience!
What’s the difference between NC and NW?
There are 4 skin tone classifications:
NC-Neutral cool, for golden undertones
NW-Neutral Warm, for more red undertones
C-Cool (Studio Fix Only)
N-Neutral (Studio Fix Only)
What’s the best way to apply liquid and powder foundations?
Brushes of course! I prefer to use the 109 brush with liquid and cream foundations for a silky soft finish, then using the 187 or 150 brush for powder afterward. Keep in mind, the larger the brush, the more sheer the powder coverage. You can also use the 129 or 187 brush for foundation.
