MAC NC25 Foundation Matches


MAC Cosmetics

MAC NC25 is a light beige shade with golden peach undertone for light skin.

Buying foundation is such a hit or miss thing for me. Somehow I always end up with a shade that’s completely wrong for me. And then I discovered this fantastic megathread at r/MakeupAddiction where the makeup aficionados there listed all the popular foundation shades that matched their skin tones.

I wanted to make that super useful resource easier to use, so I’ve extracted the shade info from the thread and sorted it by MAC shade.

The full list contains all the MAC shades.

          Hi Maria,

          For NC25 skin tone, I would go with Fiji for NARS Soft Matte foundation, which is a light to medium shade with warm undertones.

          Hope that helps!
