Try using a primer or adding a dot of moisturiser to your foundation also avoid using powder .
Next time studio fix is for more oily skins try studio fix sculpt

Also don't forget to exfoliate your skin

If you have drier skin then the studio sculpt is the one for you. Same coverage but a dewey finish x

See I have dry skin and use studio fix and it looks fine.
I just exfoliate, moisturise & prime properly before using. Never had a problem. (I use Embryolisse moisturiser, it's literally amazing!)

I hated the consistency of studio sculpt and the way it applied. x

Mane just ask for a sample all Mac counters are allowed to decant small amount to try. Explain how you didn't get on with the studio fix and you would like to try the other.
Another good foundation is pro long wear but it is a medium coverage I would say but it sits nicely on the skin.

Studio fix sculpt is a mouse texture and using beauty blender you use a tiny amount I mostly use colour corrector cream and tony amount of foundation.
Wet your beauty blender as ment to be the. Apply powder using damp blender to your area you might be oily and the helps to avoid a Cakey finish. And also set make up.

I'm very dry skin and I used moisturiser and primer. But I wait a little bit after I've applied to primer then apply Estée Lauder double wear.

I think you need to get your skin sorted before you go spending on more foundations x

I used to work for mac and it's really good. Sometimes people with an oiler skin would buy and then not like. Go and ask for a sample of that and also minerlize. Then call customer care and they will swop over if the counter can't but they should be able to xxxx
