Confused about what POTD is? Read this post :)
If you ever read what foundations I use in my FOTDs, you might have seen that Studio Tech gets used on a pretty regular basis.
Keep reading to find out why I like it so much!
What do I like about it?
First of all, it's one of the only pink-toned foundations I've found to be light enough for my skin.
Second of all, I love how versatile it actually is.
- Used with a brush like the MAC #190 (or any other flat foundation brush), it's very buildable and gives great coverage.
- Used with a damp brush (I prefer the MAC #109 or something similar and often use it with MAC Fix+ just because it's easy), it gets very, very easy to work with and does not look or feel quite as heavy as it does applied with a regular, dry foundation brush.
You can get different amounts of coverage depending on how much moisture you have on your brush.
- Mixed with something like MAC Strobe Liquid (scrape something out onto a petri dish or simply just the back of your hand if you're applying it on yourself) it gives a really nice glow and you can easily control how much coverage it gives by adding more or less lotion.
- Since it's so easy to blend, I love using a dark one of these to contour with. The NW45 in the picture above is my favorite contour product!
I'm not a fan of using the sponge that it comes with, since I generally find sponges quite unsanitary. Probably because I myself don't remember to replace them! ;)
Things to be aware of:
- This foundation does give quite a matte look by itself, and even though you can make it look more dewy by mixing it with other things, I find that it works better on normal or oily skin compared to dry, since it does tend to accentuate any dryness.
- If you plan on using the sponge that it comes with (or any other sponge for that matter), I find it best to moisten the sponge before use, or else you'll go through these very quickly.
