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 NW20 is too dark for you, these foundation shades might suit you:
|IT Cosmetics powder foundation and CC cream||Fair|
|Kat Von D Lock It Tattoo||light 42|
|Tarte Amazonian Clay||Fairly Light Beige|
|Urban decay Naked||0.5|
|YSL Touche Eclat||B10|
