Mac Studio Fix Powder Foundation

mac studio fix powder review mac powder review
When it comes to powder, I haven't always been the biggest fan. Having dry skin, powder was something I wasn't the most excited about as some could make my skin look dry or too matte. Powder wasn't something I always wanted to go without though as it really does make your make-up last a lot longer. So I was on the hunt for a powder and I decided to purchase Mac Studio Fix Powder Foundation as I liked that it had quite a decent amount of coverage so that when I want a really flawless look I can apply this after my foundation to set it and add a extra amount of coverage. it is a foundation, I personally wouldn't use it for that. I like using it as a setting powder but if you are looking for a powder foundation with good coverage then this is a good one to try.

I had heard great things about this powder foundation but I felt like it might be too cakey looking especially to use as a setting powder, I also thought it might make my skin look too matte being a powder foundation, but it doesn't at all. I use a small amount after I've applied my foundation, I don't apply it all over just in certain places like the t-zone and on areas I want a bit more coverage. It does everything I want it too,  it makes my make-up last, adds extra coverage and gives a flawless finish. 

It's fantastic and I really recommend it as a setting powder, if you want good coverage and a airbrushed look then this is for you!

My Top Foundations For A Flawless Base

Foundation is something I love trying, I'm always on the look out for an amazing foundation and I have tried a lot but these are my top picks, the best of the bunch in my opinion. These foundations are the ones I reach for the most, they all have good coverage and give me a flawless base.

This foundation is great, it has a build-able medium to full coverage and gives a skin like finish - it's not matte but it isn't dewy either. It blends easily, doesn't feel heavy and looks natural on the skin.  This is probably the one I reach for the least out of all of these foundations, as I like a dewy finish and the others do a better job of that but it is a great foundation and is good for all skin types.

The most lightweight in consistency, the coverage can be light or be built up to a medium to full coverage. The finish is gorgeous and it really does give a luminous flawless finish. It's beautiful on the skin and lasts all day. Best suited for normal to dry skin.

Laura Mercier Silk Creme FoundationLaura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation
This is one of my long-time favourites, it's a medium to full coverage foundation, highly pigmented so you only need the smallest amount. It gives a flawless dewy finish and looks natural, I find it's actually lightweight on the skin as you only need a small amount. More suited to normal to dry-dehydrated skin.
Nars Sheer Glow FoundationNars Sheer Glow Foundation
This foundation gives a flawless medium to full coverage with a subtle glow finish. I do find this can highlight dry patches if my skin is very dry so thats something to bear in mind if you have dry skin but most of the time I wear it and its looks great.

So those are my favourite foundations, they are all amazing and if your after a foundation that gives you a flawless finish, try one of these! If you have tried any of these foundations, let me know what you think?

Becca Cosmetics Worth The Hype?


Becca's Shimmering Skin Perfector's have been hyped about by everyone it seems, so of course I needed it. The shades 'Opal' and 'Moonstone' get the most love on the internet, I went with the shade 'Opal' which is a golden with a hint of bronze to it, good for light to medium skin. If you prefer a more creamy pale gold highlight then 'Moonstone' is for you. The shade 'Opal' is gorgeous, it is golden without being to gold if that makes sense, it gives a lovely golden glow. The texture is soft without being powdery and it blends effortlessly. It is intense highlight but not too much in my opinion, it gives just the right about of highlight. The shimmer is nice and fine without any large glitter. Overall this highlighter gets hyped about for good reason! 

Next onto a Becca Mineral Blush in 'Wild honey', which is a matte warm peach shade. The pigmentation is great, they apply easily with a soft texture but again like the highlighter not powdery. The shade range is lovely so I definitely recommend checking these blushes out! 

Overall I love both of these products, the highlighter stands out for me and it's one of my favourites, the blush is also amazing, both great quality which makes them totally worth the price.
