MAC NW50: rich coffee with neutral 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!

      Esther,

      I’d go with the shade Walnut for Bobbi Brown Weightless Powder foundation. It’s described as a rich brown for red undertones.

      Hope that helps!

      Francisca,

      Try shade Walnut for Bobbi Brown foundations. It’s a rich brown shade with red undertones that would suit MAC NW50 skin tones.
