MAC Every-day Make-up.

MAC Studio Careblend Pressed Powder in Light / MAC Sheertone Blush in Blushbaby / MAC Studio Sculpt SPF 15 Foundation in NC15

I bought these make-up products today as part of my every-day-face look. I had a consultation about which tones would work best with my skin which I would recommend as I find my skin colour varies throughout the year.

The Studio Careblend Pressed Powder adds a finishing touch over foundation to create a matte finish which I definitley prefer. It's easy to blend in with a powder brush and provides even coverage.

I really love the Sheertone Blush in Blushbaby as it's quite subtle - you can't see it that obviously in this picture. For evenings I would prefer a darker shade, but for every-day use this is great. It provides a natural 'flushed cheeks' look without looking like you've run a marathon. It's easy to apply only requiring one or two strokes depending on how pigemented you want the pinkness to be.

This Studio Sculpt SPF 15 Foundation is great for me as it provides maximum coverage as well as keeping the skin hydrated. I find foundation can really dry out my skin, especially in the 'T' zone and my forehead, so even though it has quite a satin duey finish, the Studio Pressed Powder can matte it down.

I love these products and it is such a relief to have found a colour that actually blends well with my whole face, in stead of having to work with different colours for different sections of my face. The blush adds a finishing touch and bodes well with my pink/peachy lipsticks.



  1. finally, somebody who shares the sae skintone as me!
    how is the studio scult foundation? i've only ever tried select and studio fix but they're quite oily slide off my dry skin leaving patches.


    1. I really love it, only been using it for a couple of days but it gives maximum coverage. It does have a slight cakey feel but I suppose that's what high coverage does. It's really easy to apply and blend in and I just love it! It doesn't fade during the day either :) x

  2. You look gorgeous - I think you have definitely found the look for you!

  3. You have such beautiful eyes, and simply flawless skin. Jealous.

  4. OMG! I absolutely love your eyes. You are very pretty.
    I'm so jealous... haha

  5. Your skin looks so flawless! What did you use to apply the foundation? xxx
