Choosing the right shade

At my last Sephora visit, the beauty consultant used a little machine to determine my exact skin tone. The result was 4Y05. Can anyone use that information to help me choose the right shade of Makeup Forever HD Foundation? Thanks!

Re: Choosing the right shade

Hi Nechamy Did the Cast Member not pull up the corresponding shades when she did the match? Since it's an in store matching service, we don't have a way to pull it up online. I would recommend contacting the store to see which shade that matches up to in the Make Up For Ever.

WHAT COOL MACHINE IS THIS? im imagining some majestic contraption where you stick your face in and lasers start pulsating around you and a neat little golden ticket comes out with your perfect shade...

Re: Choosing the right shade

You can keep the golden ticket, can I have the chocolate?


Jk, it's probably Pantone Color IQ, (un)fortunately, you do not stick your face in it.

Re: Choosing the right shade

Someone say chocolate?


Can you tell I'm hungry?

Re: Choosing the right shade

I got the same result today, and the Makeup forever color was : 120 Soft Sand, good luck

Re: Choosing the right shade

  1. I was matched the same way in the store yesterday. I was told that in the Make Up Forever line, to use the powder foundation in Natural Beige. I was also told that the Lorac CC in medium would work as well.
