MAC's Studio Fix Fluid Foundation is a cult face base in the industry, and loved by makeup artists and celebrities for its ability to perfect without masking the skin.

Ideal for oily and combination skin types, the foundation contains silica, a hero ingredient known for its absorbing abilities, which help to prevent the skin from looking shiny.

The result is a matte finish, but thanks to Vitamin E and sodium hyaluronate, which are infused into the formula, it never looks flat on the face, and instead provides natural, and healthy-looking coverage.

The formula itself is non-acnegenic, making it suitable for blemish-prone complexions. As it's a breathable foundation, it won't clog your pores or feel heavy on your skin, but it will completely cover any blemishes or imperfections.

In addition, the foundation has an SPF 15, making it great for using in the winter months, when it's not as sunny as summer, but your skin still needs to be protected against harmful UV rays.

    The foundation that leaves other foundations quaking in their boots. If you are looking for a full-coverage finish that feels weightless, think is your new beauty best friend. Non-acnegenic, it's a completely breathable formula and so perfect for blemish-prone and combination skin types especially (although works really well on all skin types too). Providing flawless coverage, the colour is true-to-skin so don't expect any oxidisation; great for those who struggle to find their perfect shade. It's lightweight, satin smooth and gives an oh so smooth look and feel to skin.

    Give your Studio Fix Fluid Foundation even better staying power with the MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation. A light dusting of this invisible powder helps to set makeup in place, without ever looking cakey on the skin. The powder hydrates and perfects, while its velvety texture works to create a smooth, matte finish and remove unwanted shine from the complexion. An all-round beauty hero which deserves a place in every makeup bag.

    This amazing and multipurpose stick can be used to both conceal and contour, although you'll need 2 separate shades... The MAC Studio Fix 24-Hour Liquid Concealer helps to reduce the appearance of dark circles, blemishes and imperfections, yet never creases throughout the day. Thanks to its blend of conditioning ingredients, it stays free from dry patches, and instead helps to keep your skin both looking flawless and healthy. Thanks to its buildable formula, you can also buy the stick in a few shades darker than your own natural skin tone, which makes the perfect contour colour. Sheer perfection.

    5 Stars 3 Reviews
    Brand new from the brand is their Studio Fix Soft Matte Foundation Stick. In 33 different shades (in a wide range of tones to find your perfect colour), the stick is super creamy and blendable, evening out the skin tone and minimising imperfections such as blemishes, redness and pigmentation. Additionally, the soft matte finish is perfect for controlling oil production, yet won't make skin appear flat. Expect a softly luminous finish that looks like its glowing from the inside out. We love to use this on-the-go - keep in your handbag for important touch-ups throughout the day.
