What is the best foundation for combination skin?
The best foundation for combination skin without doubt has to be the MAC Studio Fix Fluid liquid foundation. First of all you have to acknowledge the incredble shade range. With a staggering 67 shades with subtle variants from cool golds to rich mahoganies, MAC Studio Fix Fluid is a beauty leader in diversity of skin shades on offer. On top of this it is Oil-Free, providing 6 hours of oil and shine control, but it also provides imidiate and long-term moisture for up to 8 hours. So thats shine free hydration to support your oily and dry areas.
MAC Studio Fix Fluid foundation is also non-acnegenic which is critical if you have acne prone skin or suffer with the occational breakout. plus, due to it being non-poring and skin refining its also perfect if you have some areas of your skin with large pores. This amazing foundation is sweat and humidity resistant and offers broard spectrum UVA/UVB protection with SPF 15 which means this foundation is great in any weather or any season.
Add in its non-fading, non-streaking, non-caking and non-settling formular that has a 24 hour longwear finish leaving the skin with a velvet matte finish you can understand why its loved by Makeup Artists, Models, Beauty Experts and Makeup Obsessives. What I love most about MAC Studio Fix Fluid is the way I can manipulate the coverage.
PRO TIP: By using a makeup brush like the MAC 190 it starts as a medium coverage, but if you use a more dense brush like the MAC 170 you can build the coverage to a fuller finish. On the flipslid, if you were to use a longer fluffier brush like the MAC 187S or 188S you can buff on a sheer light coverage. MAC Studio Fix Fluid really is an incredible diverse foundation that can adapt to what you want, how you want for when you want.
