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.
If NW10 is too light for you and NW13 is too dark for you, these foundation shades might suit you:
|Becca Ultimate Coverage Complexion Crème||Porcelain|
|It Cosmetics CC+ full coverage cream||Fair|
|Marc Jacobs Genius Gel Super–Charged Oil–Free Foundation||10 Ivory Light|
|MUFE Ultra HD Foundation||R220|
|Neutrogena Shine Control foundation||Classic Ivory|
