MAC NW25 and NW30
MAC NW25 is a rosy beige with rosy undertone for light to medium skin.
MAC NW30 is a medium beige with rosy undertone for medium skin (neutral-warm).
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.
