I recently watched a video by Juliette Noir as she demonstrated some Jecca Blac products. They seemed to work amazingly well.
Wanted to hear other girls input on whether to go with liquid or powder?
Of course a beard cover/concealer is required. Good face wash prior (I use Cetaphil)
What else do you use? Primers? locking powders? Please share if you can. Im sure Im not the only one wondering. 😀

Very interesting. Very similar to the girl I watch on youtube, Juliette Noir. She reently demonstrated the Jecca Blac products. She also contours and highlights in a similar way.
Good information! Thank you!

I started off with liquid, so I still have a lot to use up!
However, having been for 2 makeovers now, I’m beginning to see the sense of powders.
I started off with foundation, but quickly realised that it created dark rivulets in my wrinkles – enter primer.
Then I started to realise that unless I completely removed the make up, shaved and re-applied, I would be stuck with stubble in the evenings. Not the best look.
All hail Jecca Blac’s concealer!
So, concealer, primer, foundation… but wait!
Now I’m getting into contouring, that liquid foundation hides and blurs all my contouring, no matter how sharply contrasted I leave it, and I have to touch it up a second time.
My makeup artist gets around that by gently dabbing the powders with a fine sponge, and setting it with spray.
But I guess there is no getting away from it – if you want to hide that broad male face, you have to sculpt the oval with dark contouring. Same goes for the bulbous male nose – which also needs lights on the bridge, and a cute little button on the end…
There’s so much to learn with contouring – and blusher and bronzes come into that equation. Every day is a school day!
For now, I’ll stick with my 10 minute car routine – beard concealer, primer, foundation, eyes, lippy and blusher, followed by a light spray to set.
Then spend like 2 hours getting ready to go out of an evening.
Sometimes it’s hard to be a woman…

I’ve been a MAC customer since the end of 2016 and have been MAC Obsessed level for the past 3 years. I have VERY oily skin on my face and scalp. Living in the desert with some 122F days doesn’t help either, so oil control is a big deal for me. The rest of me is bone dry. I don’t need a beard cover.
For the last few years I have been using their Full Coverage Foundation. They bill it as: “emollient-based, full-coverage M∙A∙C foundation“. As such it isn’t powder or liquid. As you begin to use the compact you will see a slight sheen to it and also after application. Creamy is perhaps the term that applies.
Recently I have been trying their Studio Fix Fluid foundation. I’ve used it 4 times so far and I have been surprised. For me, one application does not do it for me to cover up everything. It dries fairly quickly and some places require a 2nd application. That’s where the “buildable” part come in. I put on dabs with the applicator and then stipple with a triangular sponge. What I have found so far is that oil control seems to be better. I started trying this after the really hot weather, so that has to be checked, but so far, so good.
So, currently my sequence is:
- Oil Control Lotion (just checked the MAC site and this may be discontinued)
- PREP + PRIME Skin Refined Zone Treatment
- PREP + PRIME Pore Refiner Stick
- Studio Fix Fluid
- PREP + PRIME Fix+ Spray (sometimes)
- PREP + PRIME Transparent Finishing Powder/Pressed
If I’m really going for the 9’s, I will use Studio Finish Concealer in a few places…

I use a cream foundation. Initially was not happy with it, but started using a Beauty Blender and the result is a much more finished product….. still looking for an ideal founfation for me and next will try a liquid. I do use a setting powder as well and a face primer before I get started…
There are so many possibilities that it’s hard for a novice to choose which way to go. If I ever get up the nerve I will call a Sephora or Ulta store and set up a consultation….. I think some of the girls here have done that with some success.

Thank you Wendy!!
What do you use for set powder and set spray…if you dont mind sharing.
I was impressed with how the jecca products worked, but for here in America, I prefer the idea of a product/s being readily available from Walgreens, CVS, or an Ulta, Sephora, etc. Even as a drab guy I dont have a problem with purchases. I mean what are they gonna do RIGHT??

For foundation, all I’ve ever used is liquid.
After I’ve done applying foundation, I then apply eye shadow/liner so it allows the foundation to dry. I finish off the foundation with a set powder, then set spray to lock in the foundation.
