I was on the search for a new foundation and yet again people were trying to put me in darker shades and the wrong skin tones. I am from Kerala, India. Plz suggest me a product number for my skin for my marriage. I am totally confused. I am a medium colored skin tone wheatish. I am super pale and neutral and sometimes i look more pink others more yellow. Im recently new to Mac esp and am loving their products but trying to buy foundation from them is not fun and always ends up disappointing.
My first purchase was the mineralize foundation and the girl matched me NC15, looked fine in the incredibly low lit store, once i got to my car holy orange oompa loompa face. Next i went to try the studio fix fluid, matches this time to NW10 which actually was perfect but hated how the foundation sat on my skin. Returned it and what do you know thats their only line that has NW Next was the Matchmaster found. And lastly just bought the Pro longwear waterproof which i LOVE the product but was matched at NC20 this time which sounded off obv since my perfect is NW10 n even when i said so she said it was perfect and its so awkward i just bought it.
Once again a tad too much orange. Like i said exhausting, between the color never being right and the awkwardness when i want something other than what the mac mua suggests im about to just throw in the towel and look for a diff brand. Esp since ive wanted to try the pro longwear concealer for so long now but they dont have one even close to as light as me.
Please help me out. I have skin tone between fair and medium. And i have combination skin. Please tell me. This is great! What would you recommend I do? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Excellent research! Been looking for the kind of info you supplied and esp. The amount of time and expense finding your matching color is admirable and glad this info is still availabe.
Tried it at home…and it was off. Sounds like I should have been matched with an NC25! Thanks for your blog! Great article. I, too, am very neutral. I have had people give me ridiculous make up, saying it looked great and was a match, only to go home and, uh, no, lol. Perhaps the lighting in those places are a large part of the blame, though. Even a minimally trained cosmetic counter girl cant be that blind. Like you, ive come to realize that I can pick which type of look I want to go with.
What was once a pain is actually quite fun. To beable to switch between warm and cool toned foundation is awesome. This post is very helpful, I love it! I, too, am half-japanese and was matched to a very yellow-toned NC mac foundation. Hi, o this was such a relief to read. My question for you: when you went back Each time, did they allow you to return the product? Or did you just have to invest yourself? This is an old post but I wanted to thank you for sharing! Well, I am still not completely convinced, even though your review was very good. I have light, neutral skin and I am not able to find a match.
Usually I can go with the lightest shade in any foundation, but now I am really lost. For example, I wear 01 in Dior Nude Serum… can you help me a little bit, please? I know this post is like 4 years old but I give it a try lol…. A bit late to the party, but thanks so much for this post! Double Wear in Ivory Nude is a great match for me but the formula is really drying on my lizard lobster skin. Armani Designer Shaping Cream in 2 is also a nice match, a tad too warm but more forgiving as it has less coverage.
The search continues. Again, thanks for the great read and the resources! Neutral-cool skin tones really seem to throw makeup artists off for some reason! Thanks again! Thank you for your helpful post! I did try to use the Sephora Color IQ match system online version and I have to be honest, it was way off. In Lancome, where their shades in the majority of their foundations begin at , I can only wear 2 of their foundation products that happen to come in shade She was surprised at the online result too.
Your post was so helpful and the swatches you showed really reveals the different tone options, and how the shade can look good in a bottle but once it is on the skin, you can see the difference. Thank you for your post!! So all those NWs and NCs are [to some extent] misnomers and we should be looking for the right shade unbiased, going outside of the shopping centre in the daylight to have a look in a pocket mirror, bringing a friend and trying our best! Your experience is really helpful. Your skin is beautiful without foundation! Thanks a million!
Thank you for your article and review! Like you, I am half-Asian half-Taiwanese, half-Caucasian. It has always been a struggle finding the right makeup for my skin tone. Often it turns out too orange, too pink or way too pale and washed out. Fair-medium neutral shades seem to work best. I followed your recommendation to try Findation.
All recommended by beauty blogs. Did you ever try Shiseido since you are half Japanese? A Shiseido rep was helping me to try and color match GA about my 7th different color match through 3 different stores and then I tried the shiseido one to amuse her, but it worked on the first try! Now I fully understand. God bless you. Ugh- yes! I am still on the hunt. I was also originally matched to NW20 in Mineralize Moisture, but I find it looks a hair dark and a little grey on me.
I think I might also really be nc They seem to be so often wrong. I think my undertone is hard to assess. Is fair olive a thing? Why is it so difficult?! Want to introduce yourself?

I found this sunk into my skin a lot better than Studio Sculpt. This is a very thin, serum-like foundation, which is pretty undetectable on the skin. I would say this gives a light-medium coverage and would be a good one if you hate the feeling of makeup on your face. I like the fact it took away my redness, without looking like a mask. If you don't like heavy makeup, you will hate Studio Fix. It smells a bit like paint, it's full coverage and there's nothing natural about it. But if you want flawless skin, you can't go wrong.
Was heißt "NW / NC"?
This used to be my "party" foundation, because it makes your look skin look plastic fantastic in IRL, and in pictures, plus it lasts all day. High coverage, matte finish and budge proof. If those three things sound appealing to you, Pro Longwear has got your back. It's definitely not a 'no makeup' look, but if you don't want to worry about touching up your makeup throughout the day, this is fab.
But be warned, if you have dry skin, this isn't going to be forgiving. This is a more forgiving version of the original Pro Longwear. It has all the original benefits plus it's waterproof but I just prefer the slightly less matte finish. If you want high coverage and long-wear, but have dry skin, this would be the one to go for.
