MAC Studio Fix Concealer Review

I am a massive fan of concealers. I have a lot of things that I like to cover including dark circles and hyperpigmentation, so for me a thick concealer is a good thing to have in my makeup drawer. This MAC Studio Fix Concealer is just such a cult classic item so I knew that I wanted to try it out.

I can remember that I first got this concealer when I was only 14 years old. Crazy to think about it now, why in the lord’s name did I need a concealer at that age, but I did anyway. I had been religiously watching Kandee Johnson's videos and she did this certain tutorial and I was in love with it. So, on my Christmas list for that year I wrote down everything that she used and begged my mum and dad for it.

They came through for me and when Christmas rolled by I got this tiny black box and this concealer was in it. At that age, I had freckles on my cheeks that I despised so this was going to be my godsend to try and cover them up!

But, this is just one of them products that I have owned since, I couldn’t even begin to tell you how many of these I have worked my way through in the past few years. Especially most recently since I have been working full time, the bags under my eyes can get intense so this concealer works like a treat.

How I like to apply this foundation now is with a MAC 217 brush. I know this is meant to be an eyeshadow brush but it is great for blending in concealer. Because of all of the fine hairs it gets right into every line around the eyes so that you don’t get any creases throughout the day. Then once I have a layer of this concealer under my eyes I will go in with my foundation like normal and then set everything into place using my Laura Mercier Translucent Powder, this covers everything!

If I ever still do need to highlight the skin and bring it to life I will then go in with something that is brightening such as the YSL Touché Eclat Highlighter. Because the MAC concealer can sometimes look a little two-dimensional on the skin because of the level of coverage, this just makes the skin look healthy!

I have been a freelance makeup artist for years now. It is more of a side line recently since I started my full-time job but it is still something that I love. Over the years, I have created a custom palette of concealers using these MAC Studio Fix Concealers because they are really good for all looks and brides really love this concealer because it makes them look perfected.

Please leave me any comments and let me know any reviews that you would like to see in the future!
