let's put our shades for all the foundations (powders, too) we've tried that have matched our skin. that way, when someone needs a recommendation for a shade in a brand they've never tried, they can come in this thread and see if there's a match. when we try something new, we update our list!


stila foundation: 30 watt

mac concealer: nc20
becca foundation: nude
becca powder: sesame
shu uemura concealer: 7yr medium light-h
kevyn aucoin foundation: sx05
chanel foundation: limpide nude
biotherm tinted moisturizer: pale 01
stila tinted moisturizer: light

With half of the foundations I've tried, the lightest shade has been too dark... Here are the ones that have worked for me:

Foundation:
Prescriptives Traceless Foundation in Level 1
L'Oreal Mattique Foundation in Soft Ivory

Concealor:
L'Oreal Air Wear Concealor in Fair
L'Oreal Visible Lift Eye Concealor in Fair

Powder:
CoverGirl Professional Loose Powder in Translucent Fair
L'Oreal Hydra Perfecte in Light
Prescriptives All Skins Powder in Level 1

Here are the ones that were too dark even with the lightest shade Posted Image

Foundation:
Maybelline Dream Matte Mouse in Light 01
Clinique Superfit Makeup in Shell
Max Factor Panstick in Nude Ivory (I think that was the color name)

Concealor:
Prescriptives Camoflauge Cream in Yellow/Orange Light

Mmm, all these colors are making me hungry... Caramel, Almond, Mocha, Cocoa.... Why can't my shades have cool names like these? I'm always "Ivory" or some other polite word for "white as a sheet", lol
