DOES MAC COSMETICS SAY "YOU'RE NC45" ?



MAC Cosmetics has placed a lot of our WOC in the “NC45” range when it comes to foundation. Not everyone, with the medium Neutral Cool skin complexion, fits into the NC45 range. I personally am too light for it… and have noticed that the color makes me look orangey.

    I'm supposed to be NC45 in the studio Tech. I find most make up to be reddish orange on me. What I do now is mix my liquid foundation with a call neutral cream concealer stick back of my hand before I apply. So far so good. A doesn't oxidize and turn Orange and a matches my skin tone a lot better. I think I have a more Olive undertone than red undertone and they try to give me. I've been wanting to try and Nars for a long time

    They just made an NC 45.5 which is a similar color but with no orange undertone, you seem like you would have a cool neutral undertone. Try the new one that could've been your issue it was mine.

    We black women tend to think we are lighter than what we really are… The NARS is waaaay too light. shrugs

    Yeeeeeeeep, I was immediately given NC45 and noticed on some days that my face looks like an oompah loompah in videos. But I have to use a Powder because my skin dislikes liquid foundation.

    Your video really impacted how I'm looking in my own look. I wear NC45 and really wasn't satisfied with the look of my foundation after I applied it. I'm now on the hunt for a foundation that matches me perfectly. Thank you.

    It's not that it makes you "Orange" , you simply just need a lighter color

    I so agree with what ever your saying. They actually really do that and it does look orangey. What is your opinion on the NC44 compared to NC45. Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

    They always put me in NC45 also. It gave me a orange/red look. I thought it was just me. Glad to know I'm not the only one with this problem.
