Mac nc vs nw foundation

Life was easy na then!!! Can you enlighten me on this?? So if you were matched to C Cool , that means you have warm , reddish undertones cancelled by yellow tones. C shades are the old color system the C shades with one digit C2, C3, C4 etc Are more yellow with a tiny bit of pink. The studio fix powder also has C shades with double digits C30, C35, C40 etc and these are yellow with a little bit of green and are for people with true olive skin tones.

MAC NC and NW question!! - Makeup Talk - MakeupTalk

They will always try to sell me a wrong color I swear the ladies at the MAC counters here do not know how to match brown skin at all , but I've learned enough now about my own skin type to follow my own eyes instead of somebody else's. What a great explantaion Colorlicious,thnx so much!! Posted May 19, I am a C7, in studio fix, but it makes my face look ashy sometimes.

Is this because I am not using foundation and concealer? Posted May 23, Originally Posted by Nox That happens to me all the time. Originally Posted by hypnotized55 What about C's! Then she put shade 25 on, which seemed to match better. I've tried the concealer a few times, and it seems to be a little darker than my foundation.

I looked at the bottle and it says NW25, and I could have sworn she told me that she was putting on NC25 in the store. I thought I read on here before that people with warm tones should be using NC, whereas people with cool tones should be using NW. I want to go back and ask about this, but wanted some insight from y'all first. That's why we usually use NW for undereye concealing. But you are right, for foundations we use NC for warm toned skin and NW for cool tone. Would you recommend trying an NW20 or 25? Can't tell for sure over the internet. I recommend going again and see if you can ask another employee to help you out, if it's not a big hassle for you.

The only time I would recommend an NW for a cool toned person is if they needed the warmth to correct dark circles. So the NCs run yellowy and the NWs run pinky. That's certainly how it looks when you swatch them. This is really informative and explains why the tester I was given of double wear made me look so ruddy and pink!
