MAC NC35: light to medium beige with peachy golden undertone for 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!

  1. Thank you so much this really helped me decide which shade foundation to go for!! I’ve been using clarins sand 108 and been wanting to try out Armani luminous silk for ages, but it’s so expensive and I didnt want to get the wrong shade. I really hope 6.5 will be the right shade for me. Thanks a lot! Xxx

      Hi Fizzy, for NC35 skin tone, try the 245 Radiant Honey for L’Oreal Infallible Fresh Wear Powder foundation. This shade has peach golden warm undertones.

      Hope this helps!

      Hi Liz, here are the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer shades:

      warm undertones — 27H Light Medium Honey for undereye coverage
      35H Medium Honey for the rest of the face

      neutral undertones — 35N Medium for face coverage

  6. Hi,

    What shade would you pick for nyx bear with me concealer serum if you wear NC35?

    Also, what about Kosas concealer and Anastasia foundation?

      Hello Liz,

      For NC35 skin tones, the NYX Bare With Me Concealer Serum in shade 05 Golden is a good match. For Kosas Revealer Concealer, try shade 4.

      As for Anastasia Luminous foundation, it’s a little more complicated because there are 50 shades and the correct shade depends on your skin undertone. I’d look between shades 300C (this fits NC30 skin tone) to 360C (fits NC40 skin tone) and pick the one that fits your undertone.

      Best of luck!
