MAC Studio Fix Fluid For Contouring

From one of my earlier reviews you may know that I am crazily in love with the MAC Studio Fix Fluid. I have used it for years and years so I thought maybe I should try it in a few more shades. So, I bought a lighter shade to highlight and a darker shade to contour.

Normally I do this with crème full coverage on top of my MAC Studio Fix Fluid. I find that it works well together but surely it would blend out more seamlessly if all the products are the same. Because products that are the same or from the same line normally work a lot better together.

So, I use this by applying with a small brush lines around my face of this product. Then I pour some of my normal foundation out onto a pallet, then using a MAC 187 Duo Fibre Stippling Brush I blend everything out together. It looks so seamless!

Obviously, it does take some effort to do this and I don’t do it every day because well, I am far too lazy but when I do I always get compliments on my makeup. But, when it is done it looks really pretty and finished really nicely.

I have tried to do this another way around by applying my foundation first and then applying the Studio Fix Fluid contour shade on top of that. For me this didn’t really work properly. I found that the base foundation that I put down first would set onto the face. Then when I applied the line of contour along my cheekbone and tried to blend it out it would look choppy and it would feel like the foundation that was underneath would just be moving about.

I have also tried this method with the L’Oréal True Match foundation, which I think does work better because it is a sheerer foundation so it blends easier.
