Foundation shade help please!

Hi! I’m wondering what shade I would be in #Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation? Pre pandemic I wore SEPHORA COLLECTION 10 Hour Wear Perfection Foundation 29 Medium Camel Intense (Y) but with less sun exposure I am now,2 SEPHORA COLLECTION 10 Hour Wear Perfection Foundation 28.5 Natural Camel . I’m Black but light skinned. Yellow undertones. Usually I would be in the “Medium Dark” part of the spectrum but now medium seems to refer to pretty light shades and I just don’t know. I somehow got matched to Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation 3W1 Tawny which is waaaayy too light. Any advice? Thanks!

@aleaelsewhere Hi there!  I'm one of the Sephora Community Ambassadors and hopefully I can help you out :).  There's a website that's EXTREMELY helpful for determining foundation shade matches and it's always helped me out a lot when I've been in similar situations--it's the Findation site.  Check it out and hopefully you can get some good recommendations!
