When you find a foundation you love, you stick with it. It can be tough to find a base product that matches your skin tone, complements your skin type and enhances your complexion for a your-skin-but-better look. This is why M·A·C’s Studio Fix Fluid Foundation ($55) is an icon of the makeup world and is the brand’s number one selling foundation.
This cult product has fans across the world and now is a great time to reintroduce this beauty staple, in case you’re still on the hunt for a new foundation and haven’t gone down the Studio Fix path just yet.
This baby works to minimise pores, control oil and smooth your skin for a soft matte finish. And, while it works wonderfully for all skin types, for those with skin on the oily side, M·A·C’s Studio Fix Fluid Foundation is truly a gift as you won’t be left feeling greasy or shiny at the end of the day thanks to the oil-free formula — the dream when you’re used to foundation moving around during a hectic day.
The formula also has 24-hour staying power, so early morning applications will still be intact late into the night — love that for us as we emerge from lockdown. As for the coverage, this foundation offers medium-to-full and is buildable, depending on the finish you want, making it extremely versatile.
In fact, if you want to achieve a more subtle finish, M·A·C’s National Education Manager, Ocea McKenzie recommends the following: “You can sheer it out using your favourite face oil and has flexibility when it comes to coverage. I love to apply this with the 128 Brush for a perfected finish”
We can’t praise this foundation without also mentioning the truly inclusive nature of the Studio Fix range, which includes over 65 shades — something that is incredibly rare in the beauty industry but should be commonplace.
M·A·C recently added a new addition to the Studio Fix range, including the Studio Fix Mattifine 12HR Shine-Control Primer ($56), which is designed to be used before foundation and helps to improve skin texture. This oil-controlling base makes pores invisible, mattifies skin and helps increase the longevity of your foundation.
Sometimes your makeup routine needs a shake-up or you simply haven’t found the right products for you. Don’t settle for cakey foundations that don’t last the distance — you deserve better than that. Shop M·A·C’s Studio Fix Fluid Foundation via the M·A·C website. (You can thank us later!).
