When I put on my concealer to highlight my face I always get creases, after reading reviews and taking advice from many I decided to purchase a translucent powder. The first one I purchased (below) was from MAC, I also decided to purchase some wedge sponges (also from MAC) to make the application process easier. I started to highlight my face using my MAC Studio Finish Concealer in 'NC45'. This is the BEST concealer in my opinion I've tried a few of the others and this may just be the best texture for highlighting, or I'd use my Clinique Even Better concealer in 'Nutmeg' which is very similar to MAC's. I use the 130 to blend it all in which creates an airbrush effect and then I'd use my translucent powder from Mac to set the make up then a fan brush to dust it off. I'd look like I had white powder on my face but by the time I'd walk to the train station or use my Fix + spray the white look disappeared. I was in love with it for the first two days until I then started to look like I was diseased lol if I touched the highlighted part of my face, you would see a finger print and then it started to look like someone sprinkled oil on my face... I really can't explain but I just had to stop using it.
My make up looked flawless and then the SAME thing started happening to my skin. I'm actually quite confused now and I don't know what to do. I'd recommend both if your wearing for short amounts of time but after my 8 hr days at work, this is what I look like. Hmmmmm maybe it's my skin? But I'm not oily. Any recommendations?
