Guide To MAC Foundations

MAC do a lot of foundations and it can be little daunting to go foundation shopping in MAC because there so many different options. I’m by no means a MAC expert but I do love cosmetics and trying new things and MAC is always good place to have a browse. Here is a quick rundown of the foundations, I really recommend if you’re interested in a MAC foundation, you should go to a store or counter and get a personalised recommendation.


Mineralize Moisture Foundation SPF 15

This is newest MAC foundation, it’s aimed at drier skins and provides light coverage but it’s buildable to medium. It has light reflective particles so it’s great if you want that healthy, dewy look.

Face and Body Foundation

This is probably the most famous MAC foundation. It’s designed to be used all over the body and because it contains properties to create a film on the skin and it means it doesn’t transfer. The formula means it needs a good shake to mix the foundation because it separates. It’s light coverage but the more you work it into the skin, the better the coverage becomes and you can more layers for more coverage. The finish is very natural and skin like and tends to suit dry, normal and oily skins.
