MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural is my second love from MAC right behind the Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation. At one point I didn’t wear anything else on my face except for this with a bit of concealer to cover spots for like a year. I’ve since gone through numerous foundations but always come back to my MSFN to pay a visit. I love the gorgeous glow that it gives my skin in the Summer and like to use it throughout the Fall and Winter to mimic that glow.
Mineralize Skinfinish Natural is a domed baked mineral face powder that provides low coverage with a multidimensional, semi-matte finish that looks very natural. It can be used to set your foundation or for touch ups during the day, or alone to even out skintone and give the skin a natural glow. Although the coverage is buildable it will not cover spots well so you will need to use concealer or a tinted moisturizer on spots first. Also if you’re oily you may need to blot during the day as it does not control oil. Wearing an oil control primer underneath helps a lot. My shade is Deep Dark but my compact is a few years old so I believe it’s now the equivalent of Dark Deep.
It matches my complexion perfectly and enhances it to give a glowing from within look. On the weekends I’ll buff a little into my skin with a flat top powder brush to even out my skintone and get rid of dullness. If wearing MSFN to work, I cover any spots with concealer and put on a light layer of tinted moisturizer or bb cream and then set it with the Mineralize Skinfinish. A little goes a very long way. Here I am wearing it over my Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream…
It makes my skin look even and sun kissed, yet it is still natural looking.
Mineralize Skinfinish Natural is one of the most popular items from MAC amongst makeup enthusiasts and artists alike and for good reason as it’s awesome. It’s perfect for those who like a natural look and don’t want to look as if they are wearing makeup. I will always keep a compact in my collection. It retails for $30 and can be purchased at your local MAC store, counter or at maccosmetics.com.
