The Beauty Professor
Last month, I reviewed one of my favorite foundations, By Terry Cover Expert Foundation (complete review found HERE). Its impeccable coverage, lasting power and skin care benefits have made it a staple in my daily routine.
While I wear #7 Vanilla Beige, a yellow-based light hue in the NC 20-25 range, I recently had the opportunity to swatch the #8 Intense Beige which is closer to a NC 27-30. Intense Beige seems to have a slightly warmer/peachier undertone which makes it a touch darker than the Vanilla Beige (which is definitely more yellow in undertone). I think that this will be a logical step up in depth when summer rolls around and wanted to share a side by side comparison of the swatches for those with a similar skin tone.
