MAC NC44 to NC45 Foundation Matches/Equivalents

MAC NC44 and NC45

MAC Cosmetics

MAC NC44: tanned caramel with golden undertone for medium to dark skin

MAC NC45: bronze with golden undertone for dark 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!
