I recently decided to go on the hunt for the "perfect" matte taupe. The color that is perfect to be worn alone, as a crease color, or the blending color. Please don't judge me. I just found out that you can use a "blending color" to blend shadow in crease.
My skin is medium toned, around NC30. My foundation/TM matches are:
Lucy Minerals Original in Creamy Bisque-Golden Medium
Tarte Smooth Operator Tinted Moisturizer in Agent 010
NARS Tinted Moisturizer in Alaska (St. Moritz is too dark on me, making my face look dirty)
I have these following colors that I think
are taupes (or at least how they look on my skin)
Quartzite (I know it's "tan", but for some reason it kinda looks taupe on me, especially after pressing it)
Blanket Fort (again, it looks taupe-ish on me, just leans a bit plum and bronzy)
Fusion (taupe with prominent gray and plum tones)
Teacher's Pet (gold taupe on me)
Dark Arts (green-gold tones taupe)
Catalyst (very dark taupe, of course)
I'm thinking about getting either Eu-Taupe-Ia/Terra/Bareback.
Can any of you suggest which would be my perfect matte taupe? I wish I can buy all of them, but I plan to tighten my budget. So I will only buy one on my next purchase. Or hopefully someone would want to swap with me.
