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.
