So I talked with MAC yesterday (online chat) about helping me with picking the right shade of Studio Fix Fluid foundation (thanks everyone for making me WANT/NEED to try this). I cannot make it to a counter, the nearest one is too far away. So I have to try online ordering.
Maybe someone here can help or let me know if what we came up with sounds right????? PLEASE and THANK YOU! I told the assistant my shades in Prescriptives and she deteremined what she thought would work.
In Spring/Summer/Fall I use:<O:p</O:p
Prescriptives Virtual Matte (I combine Y/O Fresh Bisque Lvl 3 AND Y/O Fresh Champagne â€“ this seems to give a perfect color when I combine them).In the winter I use (my skin is still oily but can handle the Flawless better in the winter???? Weird):
Prescriptives Flawless Skin (Ivory 05 Y/O â€“ which is also pretty close to my skin tone or blends pretty well).We determined I am probably closest to a NC25â€¦..what do you guys think? (I thought at first I was NW...thought I had pink undertones????) Is anyone here good at shades with MAC? She told me that MACâ€™s NC are similar to Prescriptives Y/O. I have attached recent pictures with and without makeup.
I uploaded several pics, to maybe help in seeing my color/tone better....</O:p
WITH MAKEUP (obviously J). These are recent pictures, within the last couple months. I used a tissue over the flash to make the color more true and not washed out.

Mac Studio Fix Fluid in NC25 (not sure, but wondering if it looks too dark???? I'm not sure, but which the assistant matching what I gave her, this is what she came up with, maybe I should just trust her judgement?)

WITH MAKEUP AGAIN BUTâ€¦..(I believe I did NOT use a tissue over the flash, therefore a bit washed out):
WITHOUT MAKEUP (around January 2006, to show old acne scars and oily skin, yuck):
Thanks for any assistance.
*******Oh and one more thingâ€¦..gosh I talk a lotâ€¦..if anyone is able to get a sample of the MAC NC25 in Studio Fix Fluid, I would pay you for it and for shipping. Does anyone have access to getting samples? I canâ€™t because Iâ€™m too far away. Please PM me if you have access. Iâ€™m just nervous about ordering a foundation without trying it first.
