Your shades in foundations/concealers

Recommended Posts

The only two foundations that I can really say matched my skin tone nearly to perfection were:

 

Sisley Phyto Teint Eclat in 'Soft Beige 2'

Estee Lauder Maximum Cover Lightweight Foundation SPF 12 in 'Light 04'

 

I'm fair with slightly yellow undertones.

Hmmm, can't remember what shade of Estee Lauder I used to wear. But I have been using a slight tanning moisturizer, so it wouldn't work anymore probably.

 

Maybelline Dream Mousse - Medium Beige 2

Revlon Age Defying Liquid - 10 Sand Beige (is too light) AND

Mary Kay Medium Coverage - Beige 400 (is too dark)... SO...

I mix them together!

Have you had a chance to try Prescriptives? I'm paler than paste and their lightest color matches. I'm assuming you're pale too, by the colors you listed. Those colors are dark on me.

Nope, there isn't a Prescriptives counter nearby. I would want to try them since I heard they match light skin tones, but I wouldn't buy a foundation without trying it first. Maybe I could order samples from their website??

There was a post on this board (makeup) last week about QVC selling Prescriptives and having a very good return policy. Apparently, you can order the full size and if it doesn't match they take it back no questions asked. You might want to look for that thread, as it gives more information. Maybe the Prescriptives website would try to get you samples, they give them out free at the counters, so it's worth a try. HTH.
