Question
What shade is best for light-mediumish skin with YELLOW undertones?
I find that most foundation shades are too beige-y or too orange. I am currently using MUFE Mat Velvet in Natural Beige 40, but I find that it runs a little more to the pink side then yellow. Can someone give me the top MUFE HD shades that are suitable for lighter/mediumish skin with STRICT yellow undertones? I'm assuming I'd be somewhere between 117 or 120?

I wear 117. It is a pretty fair color with no pink/orangey tones. My skin has a lot of redness in it and I actually use this foundation because the yellow tones are corrective. Any pink tones at all on me and I look like I put blush on my whole face. This color doesn't do that at all. MUFE yellow-tones seem pretty true in general.

I have a similar skin tone and I've tried the colors but always go back to the translucent powder. The foundation is such a perfect match but the colored powders always make it seem a little "off."

I would suggest the HD Microfinish powder. I use it (but from a different brand currently) with my Make Up Forever HD foundation and it works perfect. It is a white, pure silica mineral powder, so it works with all skin tones/colors and with any foundation.

You really should get color matched in the store but I can tell you I mix and match 2 colors depending on the season, one lighter and one darker. The colors mix easily if you need to combine 2 to get the right color match.

I wouldnt suggest buying a foundation over the internet but if you dont have a Sephora around then start with your undertones. Do you have yellow, pink or nutural undertones. Once you pinpoint your undertones go for your skin color. If you are light but not fair look for the darker light shades that goes with your unddertones. Same goes with medium and dark colors.

To get an all day stay, I would definitely recommend using a primer under your makeup if you don't already. They prep your skin and fill in fine lines, which is great. Smashbox makes a fab one with Dermaxyl and SPF. What type of coverage are you looking for in a foundation? I think that Make Up For Ever's Liquid Lift foundation with provides more of a natural finish and a radiant glow is beautiful on mature skin with their Lift concealer, my hero, used just as needed. Hope that helps!!!

I would definitely suggest going to sephora if you can.... but if you can't, use the shade finder. On the sephora site go to the brands link and click on Makeup Forever. There you can find their shade finder and pick the one that looks closest to your skin and has the closest description. Also, sephora is always willing to take back a product that doesn't work for you.... so it is risk-free really!

most colors on the sephora site appear lighter on the skin. i am a light skin tone and got matched to 118..but then this foundation doesn't go by colors it goes by undertones..if you are, let's say, fair skinned with yellow undertones, go with a 117 and etc etc. hope that helps!

The one caveat here is this: I did not choose a color online because I know that it is very hard to match, so I chose this foundation in the store. The good thing about them is that them have lots of choices for skin color.

answer 11
I don't suggest choosing a color over the internet....especially when it comes to foundation and concealer because they are the most difficult and most important elements to match to your skin. But if you must, first determine your skin tone and undertone(s). The tone is how light or dark your skin is. The undertone is the color of your skin....Do you have more yellow, pink, beige, olive, etc? The good thing about this line of foundation is that it identifies each of its 25 shades by a skin tone and undertone. So once you identify your tone and undertone, you can match it to one of the shades. Although some people disagree with me, I think it is always better to go a little lighter than your skin color rather than darker if you are debating between 2 shades....a foundation line is the absolute worst. You can always add a little more color with powder, blush or a bronzer if your foundation is a little lighter than your actual skin tone.

I have found mixing 2 shades works best for me! This product has great "blendability" and the 2 colors mix perfectly. You will find that trial and error works best. Take the different shades home to apply your makeup. The lights in Sephora are always different and they will apply it different than you normally would. If you like them great! If not, Sephora has a great return policy so bring it back and try again! Good luck!

This gives excellent coverage but I'm not sure about covering acne since I dont have acne. I do however have some discolorations and for that I use Laura Geller's The Real Deal concealer.

It can cover acne if you use a latex sponge and stipple the product (pat it on your skin to blend it, instead of smearing, etc.) I haven't used it yet, but Make Up Forever makes a primer that is tinted green, which should additionally reduce redness.

This covers breakouts quite well. I found that if I dab it on with a concealer brush or a make-up sponge it covers completely. I haven't used any special primer with it; just my usual oil-free sunblock. It is a little shiny, so you'll want to dust on some powder if your skin is oily. I think this foundation covers better than any other I've tried, and it doesn't feel or look heavy.

It will cover your blemishes if they are light. If they are pigmented blemishes and super dark, they will conceal it somewhat but you'll still see it. I suggest using a primer ALWAYS as it smooths out your skin for a more even application and it also helps keep the makeup on longer.

When I went in the store in Miami and ended up buying this, the store rep had a skin match camera (not the correct name for it) but basically what happened - 1) she pulled out this digital camera thing 2) took pics of three different areas of my skin (camera on skin) 3) asked a few questions and whalllaaah up on the screen popped up all the foundations in the store that were supposed to exactly match my skin tone. plus some that were lighter, darker, yellower, and redder. Even though it had matched me to a different shade of this product we tried a few because I didn't like how the first shade looked. So at the very least its a starting point.
