The following chart was created by MAC to help you understand the wide array of foundation shades that MAC makeup products offer. Each shade’s name is a combination of letters followed by numbers (ie: NC 35 or NW 15). The shades range in depth from 15 (very pale) to 55 (very dark). The C, NC, N, NW or W distinguish between different skin tones. To understand how MAC Cosmetics names their foundation, powder and concealer shades, here is a breakdown of MAC’s foundation codes: Mac Makeup Products, Makeup Colors, Kiss Makeup, Concealer Shades, Eye Tutorial, Makeup Beautiful

Mac Make up. I like this for a couple of reasons-colors ---although a little dark on the black but many girls can pull this off. definition is great! The best is the shape of the eyebrows, nothing worse that a bad set of eyebrows that are too close together,too thick,pointy and clown-like.
