So as said before Ive worn NW25 for 4 years, then out of the blue a mac consultant told me i am most definitely a cool tone as i have golden undertones and not red ones!! so on her advice she sent me away with a tester of NC35....eeekk i looked jaundice and washed out...so i just assumed she was wrong and went back to NW25....however now i started looking hard at my foundation and noticing it was too orange/red on me..grrr!
So in Nottingham yesterday i met an angel called Ben hahaha! he was fab...if your ever in notts go see him..he knows his stuff!!! So i tell him my dilemma and straight away he says "are you mixed blood" and i thought yesssss, why that got anything to do with it???? So here's what he told me: basically if you have 2 or more different ethnicity's in you then the yellow and red can conflict making it really hard to match...how did he know this...he was half and half himself...so he really knew his stuff and had gone through the same dilemma as me!! he also gave a tip of looking at your veins on the wrist area! if they are more blue in colour your more likely to be cool toned, and if they're more blue your warm!! Now mine in his words were aqua, haha so right in the middle of green and blue!! basically if your two tones you need to go very high up in the NC range...so he gave me NC43....amazing much darker than the NC35 i was given before and it didn't wash me out...i didn't look yellow fab!! so thank you Ben...age old prob finished with yay!! so girlie's try and find a mixed blood consultant if your having similar probs as me...chances are they will know more as they've experienced the same prob lol!!!
Ok and another insight from my new friend ben....i dont know wether to be happy or annoyed...i mentioned i was a beauty therapist and out he pulls a card...a pro membership card??????
