If you want to get slam-dunk skin-care and makeup recommendations, time-tested tips and tricks, and a sprinkling of Studio 54 stories and snaps on the side, look no further than Brain Trust member Sandy Linter’s Instagram. The iconic makeup artist and all-around pop-culture fixture makes gorgeously glowing makeup application look simple, attainable, and pretty much perfect for any age group—and she’s always more than willing to share all her secrets.
As she recently told us, while there a whole lot of fabulous products in her kit, if you are needing “color and coverage” that delivers what she describes as “red-carpet perfection that will last till the next morning,” almost nothing can compete with MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix Tech Cream-to-Powder Foundation ($40).
“I use this on my red-carpet beauties like Christie Brinkley and Elizabeth Hurley,” Linter shares. “It might have been developed in the 1990’s, but it still gives supermodel flawlessness.”
Back in 2022, the holy grail item offers 42 shades in the U.S., as well as a promise to last up to 12 hours and an outstanding 91-percent “would recommend this product to a friend” rating on Ulta.com from customers.
And, on a global scale, one stat is seriously impressive: MAC sold one Studio Fix Tech every minute between July 1, 2021 and June 30 of this year, according to the brand.
