Foundation Shade Guide

As most of you know I am from a small town in Ireland which does not have a department store so I have to rely heavily on purchasing products online. This can be a nightmare when purchasing foundations. For this reason I decided to compile a list of what shades I am in each foundation so hopefully you guys will be able to use it as a reference if you are in the same predicament as me. Or even if you are looking in the drugstore and find it a little daunting as to which shade is closest to your skin tone this may help as a starting point. 

Mac Face and Body N3  
Mac Hyper Real NW20 
Chanel Vitalumiere 40 Beige (This is too dark I need one shade lighter) 
Nars Sheer Glow Santa Fe Medium 2 
YSL Teint Resist Shade 5

Estee Lauder Double Wear Desert Beige 12
Revlon Photoready 004 Nude  
Revlon ColorStay 180 Sand Beige  
Rimmel Wake Me Up True Ivory 
Bourjois Healthy Mix 52 Vanilla

Some other foundations which I have used in the past 

Mac Studio Sculpt NW20
Mac Studio Fix NW20
Mac Moistureblend NW20 (I find this shade in this foundation too light)

Also feel free to leave some of your favourite foundations and shade references in the comments. I will endeavor to include all the relevant links in this blog post. If you would like me to review any of the above foundations just leave me a comment.
