MAC NC30: light to medium beige with golden undertone for light to medium 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.

Enjoy!

      Jagruti,

      MAC has 2 different compact foundations: Powder Plus compact foundation and a Tech Cream-to-Powder compact foundation.

      Both compacts are available in NC30 shade. Hope this helps!
