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.

  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
