So, ever since seeing Miss Rainbow’s post (http://www.weddingbee.com/2010/01/23/ace-your-face-pt-1/) a couple of weeks ago, I have been wanting to try out her awesome tips. I have also been looking for a new foundation (I use Bare Minerals every day but it will definitely melt off at late May outdoor ceremony/reception :[ ). I decided to try Make Up For Ever’s HD foundation and MAC Studio Fix Fluid (as used in Miss Rainbow’s post).
I followed Miss Rainbow’s instructions word for word with the MAC (the chafing gel is the bomb!) and just put the MUFE on with a foundation brush. I set them both with Mineral Veil and followed up with my regular eye makeup, blush, etc.
I think that the MAC feels less cakey and it definitely went on much smoother and gave a nice soft finish. The MAC is on the left and the MUFE on the right. Can y’all tell a difference? Has anyone else compared these two foundations or better yet- found an even better one in the $30-$40 price range?

I can’t tell the difference between the two sides but your makeup looks amazing! Good job!

I’m a MUFE foundation lover… only switched up from using Smashbox beforehand. MUFE is pretty much an industry standard for photo makeup — as is Smashbox — which is why I love both of them.
Both look great on you, so just go with the one you like more 😉

I have heard so many awesome things about MUFE… I think that I will re-do the trial one day and do some pics outside since all of our pics will be taken outside… Thanks for the comments though ladies :]

your skin looks great! And I cannot tell the difference from the photos. Although I’d vote for MUFE foundation products over MAC any day~ 🙂

I was going to say the same thing; the most important thing about makeup for regular people is how it reflects sunlight (unless you’re going to be photographed indoors or in a studio). I had a great deal of difficulty with MAC. In fact I think my post is up there in the “related posts” section!

I can’t tell the difference either, but the coverage looks great, it doesn’t look cakey.
