    HI! Hard time choosing right color for me... This girl reminds most my skin color, scandinavian pale, little bit reddish. What colors you recommend and what to avoid? Some of my sample kit colors looks too yellow. For hint, my Joe Blasco color is special lite olive 1/2. In your range, what is closest to that? Thanks, I'm coming to be big fun of EM :)

      Hi jenni! I would stay away from the Golden(G) category. The Rosy category will have the most pink in it, sunkissed fair would be a good color for you. If you want something that matches your Joe Blasco color most closely, I would choose a shade from the Neutral(N) category, such as Linen (1N) :)

        Thank you EM, Do you have a complete list of shade codes? What means code 1R? Rosy and nr 1, like 0 is fairest? Your undertone page is really good, but could you add info about these codes?

    Love your shades! Please, please bring back intensive formula, though. Nothing else works as well.

    Hello, I wanted to recreate this look but you no longer carry the Wild Flower Heaven Cheek Color. What blush color is most similar to Wild Flower Heaven Cheek Color?
    Thanks,

      Hi Katie! Fresh Rose Blossom is almost identical. Field of Roses would be really close as well, just a tab brighter :)

    Hi, I have always worn Sandy Fair and in a pinch, the Sunkissed Fair. You don't have samples of 1C in any formula (semi-matte would be the only one I could use. I loved Original Glo). How do I know what color to order now that Sandy Fair is gone, without samples in the closest colors being available? :( Thanks for your help.

    Received fee sample but it is too dark for me. It was light medium. What shade should I try for older woman with grey hair? I know I a need cool colors but not sure with your product what they would be. Can you advise me what shades I should try and what all I would need to look nice and not over done

      Hello Jan,

      I would suggest you try 2N Light (Neutral) or 2C Rosy Light (Cool) to see if any of these shades could be your perfect match. They are a shade lighter to the previous Light Medium. You can email us at thanks@everydayminerals.com if you need further assistance in selecting your base shade. Thank You!

    I'm really excited to try these powders and find the right color for me. I'm going to try 1C and 1N but I get pinkish-tan in the summer so I want to try a slightly darker base too. Would 2C be a good progression from 1C and 1N? Also, which finishing dust looks best with these colors?

      Hello Allison,

      Yes, you are correct. Our new name system for the Matte/Semi Matte bases makes it easy to determine which base shade is darker to the one you're using. As the number increases in the base name, the shade gets darker.

      I suggest you give the regular Finishing Dust or the Pearl Finishing Dust a try through our 7 Piece Sample Kit to see for yourself which one of these amazing powders would be your perfect match. Thank You!

    Hi! I tried about every color you had once upon a time and "soft butter peach" was the perfect match for me. Usually foundations are either too pink or too yellow for me, the neutrals usually leave me looking ashy and horrible. Could you please tell me what color in your range that is now closest to soft butter peach, or what colors I can mix to get the same result?

      Hello Anette,

      You may want to try the Jojoba base shades as that range offers peach undertones. We have samples available through the 7 Piece Sample Kit. Thank You!

    What is the difference between how the matte and semi-matte appear?

    Reply
    • em

      Hello Rose,

      The Matte Base and Semi-Matte Base do have the same ingredient list, but not all mica's are the same. They differ in appearance and texture. For example, some mica's in appearance are: sparkly, matte, sheen, sheer, or shimmery. We use different mica's to create different products, depending on the look that we are trying to achieve. The Matte Base offers a no glow look and the Semi-Matte offers a soft dewey glow. Thank You!

    Which foundation is best for dry skin? In the summer time, my skin isn't too terribly dry, but still on the dry side, but in the winter it gets much worse, though I try my hardest to keep dry patches at bay, I generally don't wear foundation for this reason. But sometimes you just need something...SO...LOL which base is best for dry skin?
