The wonder of MAC Face & Body foundation

Summer's letting closer!

What does that mean? People want to be tan, tan, TAN!!!

Are you like me, who embrace their natural paleness and don't want to come close to the harmful rays of the sun, yet still want to look bronzey for the special occasion?

If your answer is yes, then go to the MAC store and get yourself a bottle of MAC Face & Body foundation (get whatever color you want, preferably a deeper shade for summer).

I'm typically a C2, but I got a bottle of C5 to use on my legs. I very rarely wear shorts/skirts, but when I do, I don't want my paleness to blind people. It's also be proven that darker color makes people look thinner.

I did a comparison for your enjoyment:


I'm pretty sure you can tell which is before and which is after.

What I love the most about F&B is how natural it looks. I've tried a lot of self tanners and to be honest, none of them looked natural. They all looked orangey. The first day I wore F&B on my legs to work, my co-workers asked if I've been out in the sun. They were surprised at "how tan I am". I apply it with my hands, rub it in, and layer for a more tanned look.

F&B is designed to be waterproof and transfer resistant, so don't worry about it getting on everything. You bet that I would be flaunting my (F&B covered) gams this summer. :) This is literally like silk stockings for your legs.

At $32 for 4oz, hell I'd used it ALL OVER!! :)

Thanks for reading guys! Happy Monday!

xoxo,

Tao

It looks really good! Does it really not transfer? Is it streaky at all when you apply it with your hands?

This looks great, way better than a tan and more natural looking. Does it have the typical bottled tan smell?

It looks awesome, Tao! Thanks for doing comparisons so we can see the difference =P Do you just use soap + water to remove it at the end of the day?

justlou said...

wow it looks sooo great on you!! I may plan on doing the same thing too. I do not want to tan, I love the effects of it. Does it really stay on with water proof, the whole 9 yard? If so I'm soo excited to get it..so my pale legs that is LOL.

omg this is amazing! I definitely need to purchase some of these, its better than self tanner because it will even out the skin tone and cover any blemishes on the body. great suggestion!

Marge said...

i love the shade, i may be able to pull it off, too! i'm as 'pale' or fair as you are. thanks for posting ;-)

Stacieee said...

Wow Tao, that looks so natural! Did it really stay on without transferring to your clothing? Because when I think of a foundation, I'm worried about it rubbing off. Does it have any smell to it?

Bianca said...

I need this to cover up some unsightly veins and to add color to these ghostly white legs. Can you do a tutorial on how to apply? Please please.
