MAC Make-up and Photography

Recommended Posts

Someone suggested Studio Fix when being photographed...I asked a friend of mine that works at MAC and this was her reply (she also does some modeling and always looks great in her pics):

 

Studio Fix is not a photographic make-up. because it is a powder with no reflective particles when the flash hits it it bounces right off - which in turn if you are not the exact color of your powder your face will look whiter than the rest of you :)

 

I use (when i do shots, on prom girls, for weddings etc) hyper real foundation - this has pearlized reflective particles in it and it really makes the skin look fab! i do dust on with a powder brush - a bit of studio fix to help set the foundation.

 

Just a heads up...

Wow, I use and LOVE Studio Fix pressed powder but have noticed that at times in my pics, my face stands out as paler. The problem is, my skin is pretty sensitive and I always feel so unnatural looking (as opposed to the natural ghost look? ((shrug))) when I wear any sort of cream foundation. I guess it's worth a try though.

 

Thanks for passing on the info Martha, this was so helpful to learn.

I think Studio Fix is probably fine if you use it sparingly. Any powder's that studio's use isn't really for make-up purposes, it's only to dull any shine from the face and to get rid of any oils, so that the face is smooth instead of having shiny hot spots from the flash. If used correctly, it should affect the color of your face. It's mainly just to reduce any glare.

I use studio fix, and I ove it because it offers such great coverage. I top it off with some bronzer so it doesnt look so matte. It works great.

I work in front of a camera everyday and I SWEAR by Studio Fix.. I do dust Mac's Mineralize Skinfinish Natural over it.. to liven it up a bit.. plus that way you don't have to keep overcoating your face!!

If you use bronzer.. the Skinfinish is great over that as well!

I was a news anchor for 13 years and swear by Studio Fix. If you aren't sure of your color, go to the MAC counter and have them do the makover for you ... (it costs $40 worth of products to have it done , which you will spend in a millisecond). Once you know the right colr for your skin tone (and a bronzer for touch-ups and in case you get some sun on the beach in the days before the wedding) you should be good to go ... and it will mean less touch-ups thriughout the day.

    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now. 
    • I think that would be a great idea. I have tried it once and loved it.!
    • That's really sweet. I am sure she would love that.!!
