The Different Types of M.A.C Foundation
M.A.C has a variety of foundations available in different finishes, coverage levels, and formulas to suit different skin types. While some are sheer and dewy, others deliver a full-coverage, matte finish. Typically, the higher the coverage, the more attention you need to pay to your application technique. A sheer foundation blends in quick and easy. But you may need to buff your high-coverage foundation a little more to blend it fully with your natural skin tone and eliminate that dreaded demarcation line on your jaw.
