hey dolls - I was recently buying foundation and stumbled upon this mega foundation chart. It shows your colour match in different brands of foundation - provided that you know your shade in one brand. For example I'm an NC25 in MAC and it shows me that in Makeup Forever I'm probably an HD120 or HD123, or in Revlon I'm probably Golden Beige etc etc.



This has made my life so much easier since it narrows down which colours to swatch when I go try different foundations at the mall. Colour matching is always such a pain!

I hope this helps you the next time you're looking to try new foundation.


xoxo, elle.

hmm im still confused, what if your foundation isnt listed on there. :(

elle said...

@liz - this foundation chart isn't full. so you're out of luck if the foundation colour that you are using currently isn't on there.
