  1. Hi There! I hope you are doing well and all is good!

    I would like to ask you a few questions regarding shade match of the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation. As there are no stores or counters any where near where I live i am having to order my makeup online which as you probably already know can be very difficult when trying to find the perfect shade for foundation, concealer and powder. Due to this i came across your blog, which i am in love with by the way! And saw that you were a makeup artist; i was hoping you could advise me on which shade may be a reasonably good match for me.

    I have more pinky than yellow undertones however have been told by a professional makeup artist (from a previous MAC makeup course experience) that i am able to wear either cool or warm foundation shades which i am guessing means i have quite neutral skin tones. If it is any help i am the shade ‘Mont Blanc’ in the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation, the shade ‘115 Ivory’ in the Makeup Forever HD Foundation, and although it isnt foundation, the shade NC15 and NW15 in MAC concealers. I am also the shade ‘Fair Neutral’ in the Urban Decay naked skin concealer although this may not be any use to you as it is a concealer not foundation! haha.

    I would very much appreciate any advice or recommendations of shades etc as i am unable to get to a counter to get matched! This can be very annoying in cases like this! 😦

    Thankyou and i look forward to hearing back from you if you have the time!

    • Hi Holly, So sorry this took me so long to respond, I was having problems seeing this on my blog. All the foundations you wear are my shades, you sound like you have very similar skin colour and tone to me. I wear the shade Cool Bone which I did get in the US when I was there last year, so I am not sure as the colour shades it comes in other countries. It is more on the yellow side than pink, but it should still work for you hopefully. It’s pretty hard to purchase foundation online though, it’s always better to go towards the lighter shade of a foundation if you are not sure. I hope this helps. 🙂
