    Yeah I sgree. I was a makeup artist for 5 years and it's the best way for me to blend properly on my own face.

    Around $30 from memory! It's a really lovely foundation - healthy mix and healthy mix serum are both lovely.

    I use my usual lancome moisturiser. Under some foundations I'll also use a primer but not always

    Agree with others that fingers are also fine for foundation. In some cases, better than any brush!

    I have a feeling some of the foundations used on me today may have looked better if they were applied with fingers.

    I'm going to try applying the MAC sample this way to see if I like it better when I apply it myself.

    So this morning I thought I'd use a bit of the take home pot of MAC face & body foundation. I applied it with my fingers, being careful not to over apply and I'm quite happy with it!

    Now I'm starting to think the problem yesterday was that the makeup artists were all too heavy handed with the application. They all used a brush and applied a lot.

    This has made me think maybe I can work with a foundation after all

    Awesome

    Sponges and brushes can soak up too much product which can make you use too much - can be expensive as you go through it quicker.

    Try mixing it with a moisturiser on your finger tips to apply as well, will give a lighter finish on days you want a natural look.

    Face and body!!!!
    I haven't used face and body for ages! I quite liked it and could get a better colour match with it than any other mac foundation. My skin tone is more neutral so neither the nc or nw worked particularly well on me.
    I tried their match master but that oxidised on me
    Face and body... I will be trying you on again when I get to myer this week! Yay!

    I do - I just repurchased some primer the other day. When I wore just my BB cream I didn't bother.
