  • I currently use medium beige neutral in matte finish. What is the corresponding new name that I can order? And what is one shade lighter than medium beige neutral? Thanks!

    • Hello Erin,
      We have a completely new Matte and Semi-Matte line with a unique and easy name system. You can learn more about it on our Blog. 5N Tan is the closest match in comparison to the Medium Beige Neutral. The next shade darker to the 5N Tan should be coming out soon! Be sure to check our website for any updates! We also offer the 7 Piece Sample Kit so that you can try out a variety of Base shades as well. Thank You!

  • I tried fairly light neutral but don't know what this corresponds to in the new naming? What is the shade darker than fairly light neutral?

    • Hello Erin,
      The Fairly Light Neutral has been re-named as 2N Light. The 3N Beige would be a shade darker than the Fairly Light Neutral. Thank You!

  • What's the differences between jojoba base and using the matte or semi matte power.

    • Hello Inez,

      I have listed a breakdown of different foundation formulas, this will help you select the formula that best suits you:
      Semi-Matte - provides a subtle glow appearance and is formulated for normal to combination skin.
      Matte - provides a silky smooth matte finish that is ideal for all skin types.
      Jojoba - a satin finish and this is good for all skin types.

      Thank You!

    I am 64 and retired. I really do not wear make-up anymore. Raising two small grandkids, When We go to a wedding or a special occasion like a wedding, etc. I usually just wear mascara. I would LIKE to try one of your mineral powder foundations to add with the mascara for special occations, not everyday wear. I have a closup picture of my face I can send someone. I just always have a hard time deciding what COLOR foundation powder to get. If I had to GUESS, I would say that I am a medium cool face. But would like to get another opinion. Is it possible to send my face pix?

    • Hi Sue,

      Yes, you can send us your picture and we can gladly assist you with your base shade selection. You can email us at thanks@everydayminerals.com. Thank You!

  • Hi, my name is iza I love your brushes! But I'm looking for my shade and I need help. I think I look good with honey and for sure 3w is to light but medium tan was too dark. So if you can give me advice on other colors I could try. Honey is good but I feel like it's kinda peachy. All help is good thanks.

    • Hi Iza,

      You can give the 4W Golden Medium a try to see if this shade will work for you. You can try it through our 7 Piece Sample Kit. Thank You!

    I'm trying to figure out what shades would work with an olive complexion. What is the differene between the matte, semi-matte, and jojoba base? I'm 50 and my skin tends to be dry in the winter months.

    • Hi SUe,

      Olive shades need green added, so we would recommend that you add the Mint Color Corrector to your base shade that matches closest to your complexion.

      I have listed a breakdown of different foundation formulas, this will help you select the formula that best suits you:
      Semi-Matte - provides a subtle glow appearance and is formulated for normal to combination skin.
      Matte - provides a shimmer free finish that is ideal for all skin types.
      Jojoba - creamy in texture and offers a soft glow finish; good for all skin types.

      We can further assist you with your base shade selection, simply email us at thanks@everydayminerals.com. Please tell us more about your skin tone/undertones or you can send us a photo of yourself. Thank You!

  • I used to use the IT base in multitasking neutral, I believe it was called. Can you tell me which shade would be compatible in the jojoba base?

    • Hi Alyssa,

      The Alabaster is the closest shade to the Multitasking Neutral base. You can try the shade through our 7 Piece Sample Kit. Thank You!

  • I currently use golden by Sheer Cover. What color would match? Also, do you offer samples of your mineral foundation?

    • Hi Judy,

  • Hi EM, I used to use IT base in Golden Medium for a few years and was always in love with how true the shade matched my skin and when that ran out I tried purchasing a new base and found it you don't have that anymore. So I went ahead buying the Semi Matte Golden Medium but somehow found that it is not as yellow as my previous IT Golden Medium?? I've tried Jojoba base before and don't really prefer it, can you suggest something that is the exact shade as the IT Golden Medium? Thanks!!

    • Hi Sha,

      The 3W Golden Beige Matte is the closest shade in comparison to the Golden Medium IT base. You can try the shade through our 7 Piece Sample Kit.

      Olive shades need green added, so we would recommend that you add the Mint Color Corrector to your base shade that matches closest to your complexion. Thank You!

      • Thanks EM for the fast reply. You recommended 3W in Matte, does that mean the 3W Semi Matte has a different shade than 3W Matte? Is there any way I can have a true match shade in semi matte instead of matte? Thanks EM!

  • If I am a 4N semi-matte foundation, which concealer would best match me? In this description it is paired with medium beige, but in the concealer section, it says that medium concealer is suited for medium skin tones and medium beige for beige skin tones. Thank you!
