  • 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?

        • Hi Jenni! The R and G corresponds with your undertone. 0 is Fairest and 7 is the darkest shades that we offer which each correspond to a different user on the newbie page. For example 1R would be rosy light with cool undertones. :) Does this help?

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

  • Hi, I just found this site today, placed order for free samples,now after checking faces out lol I may have messed up with choices,hope not lol

    • Hi Janet! Oh no! Well feel free to order another sample kit, and let me know if I can help you in any way!

  • 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?

    • 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 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!

  • Anette June 18, 2014

    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!

  • Tell me how to get the 7 piece sample kit.

    • Hello Sue,

      The 7 Piece Sample kit lets you pick up to 5 sample products; including foundations, some face and cheek products and you only pay for shipping. You will automatically get 2 free samples (new Finishing Dust and Lanai in the Sand bronzer) when you order this kit. You can select your kit here:

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

    • 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?

    • Hello Sarah,

      The Jojoba base is ideal for dry skin. You can sample some shades through the 7 Piece Kit. Thank You!

  • I just ordered your free sample kit and purchased the mint corrector. It's in a very small container, are all your other makeup products in the small containers? This won't last long!!

    • Hello Shelly,

      We no longer carry big sizes of concealer, they are now in mini sizes (.06oz / 1.7g). You can actually see the information about the sizes of the items in the website under the name of each item. We carry the bases, bronzer, finishing powders and blushes in big sizes. Thank You!

    Hi! I have ordered a 7-piece kit for 1C/1N, and was wondering about a few things :) 1. which finishing powder is best for 1C/1N? 2. Can the brow colour be used with light complexions (it looks so dark) and blonde hair with blue eyes? 3. Can you combine Mint Colour Corrector for blemishes and Sunlight Colour Corrector for dark circles, or are they not to be used simultaneously? 4. If you use colour correctors, do you also need a concealer? 5. Is Wet Sand what you would use when highlighting and contouring (for highlighting), and is there a substitute when Wet Sand is sold out? 6. Do you carry shimmer eye shadows? Apologies for so many questions, I would just really love to switch to EM for all of my make-up and want to make the right choices :) Thank you in advance!

    • Hi Eirin,

      The Finishing Dust and the Pearl Finishing Dust are suitable for all skin shades.

      Yes, the brow color that we used to carry should be suitable with light complexions as well. We are actually doing away with the brows category, because our matte eye shadows also work well for brows.

      You can use the Mint Color Corrector to help neutralize any redness on your skin and the Sunlight Color Corrector to conceal dark under-eye circles or for spot correcting dark spots like sun damage.

      Yes, the Wet Sand is used for highlighting. You can try the Lanai in the Sand bronzer (for contouring) through our 7 Piece Sample Kit. It is the lightest shade in our bronzer line. We no longer carry the Wet Sand but we should be coming out with a variety of complexion boosters soon!

      We currently don't offer shimmer eye shadows but we should also be coming out with a variety of eye shadows soon!

      You can always contact us through email at should you have further questions or you need further assistance. Thank You!
