If You’ve Ever Said “I Hate Makeup Because It Feels Like A Mask,” This Is For You
As much as I love makeup, I also get the complaints that I hear from other women who say foundation makes them feel like they’re wearing a mask — or even worse, look like they’re wearing one. So much goes into finding the right foundation beyond color matching; women also want coverage they’re comfortable with. And if you’re not exactly into makeup like that, most likely the coverage you want is going to be light, while still covering all your so-called imperfections.
That’s where MAC’s new Next To Nothing Foundation line comes in. MAC is actually pretty notorious for their full coverage studio sculpt and studio fix options, but this line of moisturizing tinted creams promises to bring out “skin’s luminosity for sheer, balmy perfection.” The keyword there is sheer, though Refinery 29 says, “Calling it ‘sheer’ would be doing this formula a disservice, because it covers more than even your average lightweight base — you just can’t tell it’s there.”
“It’s no-makeup makeup at its best, and by that we mean that it hides a multitude of sins (how many, exactly, it’s hard to say) without looking thick or caked-on,” the site says. “It makes skin feel moisturized, too, and there’s a subtle opalescence to it that makes imperfections fade away. It enhances, rather than conceals.”
If you’re worried about making the switch after finally finding your perfect foundation shade, MAC has a handy little chart on its site to help you find your Next To Nothing shade.
The brand also released a line of Next To Nothing Pressed Powders, which are creamy and lightweight in texture to give a barely there feel as well as a soft flow. Powders retail at $27 while the foundation is $31. If you ask us, these are right on time for summer heat.
