I have decided to review all of MAC’s foundations. I am often asked which product I recommend for different skin types etc. I will start with the lightest coverage, Face and Body Foundation.
This foundation is water based, longer lasting than oil based products. It feels quite runny when you squeeze it out. I find the scent a little off-putting. I wouldn’t let that deter you though, I have a nose like a bloodhound. It reminds me of Calpol 6 plus (no, not the yummy pink one).
I like using this foundation on clients who need very little coverage, the ones blessed with fantastic skin. It’s also useful for use on men for television, photoshoots etc as it’s very natural.
It looks fantastic when applied with 187 Duo Fibre Brush (sigma 187 or an duo fibre brush). I like to take plenty of time buffing it into the skin. When applied well it looks like skin rather than foundation.
MAC have a full range of shades and with 120ml in each bottle you won’t be running out any time soon. It’s also fantastic value for money when you consider the amount of product you get.
I wouldn’t recommend this if you’re looking for coverage. This foundation evens out the skintone but doesn’t offer much coverage if you have imperfections. You could use this and then apply concealer to your troublesome areas. Then again you might not want the hassle. If the latter is the case I would give this one a miss and go for a foundation that offers more coverage.
Bottom line, it’s a staple in my kit but unfortunately I don’t often get to use it on myself as my skin can be temperamental.
What do you think of Face and Body?
