To pick the right foundation you need to know what your undertone is.

If you have a cool undertone your foundation will be Neutral/Pink based
(Look for a C in the shade name)
If you have a neutral undertone you foundation will be Neutral/Beige based
(Look for a N in the shade name)
If you have a warm undertone your foundation will be Yellow/Peach based
(Look for a W in the shade name)

However…

M.A.C foundations are a the opposite.
N (Neutral) stays the same as every other foundation
However…
NC (Neutral Cool) has a Yellow/Peach base.
NW (Neutral Warm) has a Neutral/Pink base.

This can get a bit confusing but the gorgeous ladies at M.A.C will always be happy to help you.
