Hey Bees! I have been reading all about MAC vs. SEPHORA and have finally decided on MAC. I have oily skin and want a medium coverage, matte finish for my big day. I still want to look like myself, but I want the oil that comes with running around all day to not exist! I have used MAC before, and it works very well with my skin. I have also just had a chemical peel, and my skin is now in the sensitive category, but very smooth and glowing (yay!) So – my question is – those of you who have used MAC, what is your routine? Which foundations, powders, blotting powders do you prefer from them? I would love to know! Thanks!

@Rhapsody: i used to be a mac-o-holic. now… i still sorta use mac, but also mixed with Urban decay, drugstore, etc. anywho, my favorite MAC products to reduce shine are: the REFINE ZONE (TRUST IN THIS! Even my husband used this on his t-zone for our big day, but SHHH!! Marines aren’t supposed to use “girlie” stuff, LOL), then I will use a primer (doesn’t matter which one for me, they all do the same thing) and will use other brand’s foundations so that’s irrelevant, but I do like their Blot powder for touch ups. I have oily/combination skin that has a mind of its own… But i LOVE LOVE LOVE their refined zone and blot powder. 🙂 Happy MAC shopping.

I used to be a huge MAC fan and we are FINALLY getting one in this crap town! YAYYYY!
I used to use Studio Fix and have always used (for like 6 years…) their eyeshadow in Woodwinked.

@TineTine07: Thank you so much! THis really helps – I’ve been hearing a lot about the blot powder especially, so that’s a must buy! I’ll post pics after my trial!

if my skin is super clear, i just use the studiofix compact. if i need more coverage (like now) my foundation of choice is by makeup forever. for eyeliners, i only use urban decay 24/liners. eyeshadows i use a mix of MAC and urban decay. urban decay colors are sometimes a bit much for me with all the glitter.

everyday use studio fix does the job, cant live without it. eyeshadow, zoom lash mascara and of course lipgloss!
i got my makeup done by MAC for the wedding make an appointment and all you have to do is spend $50 towards makeup good deal if you ask me!

I’m a MAC-O-HOLIC, lol..
I use the face primer stuff since I have oily skin, liquid foundation for special occassions then bronzing powder. For everyday use I just use the studiofix compact. I don’t like their mascara so I use Dior. Finishing with a tinted MAC lipglass.

@Rhapsody: I highly highly highly recommend their face primer before using their foundation. Also – their paint tubes are great to use as eyeshadow primer … you should just be swift when using it.
