FOUNDATION CODES FROM M.A.C

The handy little chart above gives a very clear breakdown of M.A.C’s skin tone codes. I’m an NW 20 though I can get away with using an NC as I have a little yellow too…I’m weird. I wear an N1 in Face and Body, as its very neutral and works with pink and yellow.

M.A.C codes are opposite of what we would usually consider warm and cool. Try to think of NW as neutralising warmth or NOT WARM. Try think of NC as NOT COOL or neutralising cool.

In order to get an exact colour match I recommend you visit your nearest M.A.C counter. If the shade blends in to your skin tone, this is the one for you.

My Top tips on Makeup for Shoots 

PRIME Skin- a good primer smoothes out the skin, can help to distract from fine lines and also help to correct any high colour etc.  Foundation will go on flawless and will sit better without looking patchy or caked. 

Foundation- the camera tends to highlight our flaws so if you need it apply a warm toned foundation to neutralise any pink tones in the skin.  Less is more, you do not want a caked foundation sitting on the skin.  Work the foundation in with a stippling brush so it’s becomes your second skin.

Concealer- use a warm toned concealer to neutralise those dark purple circles under the eyes.  Your concealer should be a shade paler than your foundation which acts as a nice highlighter which can be blended out onto the cheek bones.

MATTE- use a Matte Translucent powder to take away shine.  Anything very dewy can look quite oily on camera and not very flattering.  However don’t overload on the translucent as this can show up on camera.  Press it onto the skin to soak up the oils. 

Avoid SPF if you know you’re going to be photographed, use a foundation that doesn’t contain SPF.  When you’re setting your concealer, be careful when using powders that contain Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxide or Zinc Oxide as the reflect light and will cause you to have a white patch.

Brows- A strong brow shape created with a brow pencil can help lift the entire face.  Carefully create a shape with light strokes filling in the brow.

Contour- creating shade under the hollow of the cheeks, along the jaw line and hair line can help create the illusion of an oval face shape.  Shade helps to push things back and anything lighter stands out.  Contour and highlight is like surgery with makeup.  Apply a matte white on the cheek bones, centre of forehead, nose and Cupid’s bow.  AVOID SHIMMER HIGHLIGHT for camera.  Shimmer reflects light and if used in flash photography will drain the skin. 

Natural Light- essential for doing makeup.  Natural light is essential for precision work. If it looks good in natural light it will look good on camera. 

Lips- line the lips to add structure and fill in.  Avoid very nude colours as these can look even lighter on camera.  Using coral, peachy tones with matching blusher can be really flattering on camera.  

These are my tips.  Hope you find them useful.
