- I should use a foundation shade, one tone lighter than my skin tone so that my face will match my skin tone once my face gets oily and acidic. From NC42, I went for NC40 and it was the perfect match! I don't look like I went to the beach on a rainy season hehe!
- To counteract oiliness, I used a makeup base / primer to keep my face from being oily. Smashbox Photofinish primer works wonders!!
- Scout for good deals!!! I use an alternative foundation for my MAC NC40. Maybelline Mineral Foundation in Dark Ochre is an cheapo foundation that works like a MAC NC40 for me! For the makeup primer, I use a Skin 79 BB Cream in Gold Caviar as an everyday moisturzier/skincare/makeup base all-in-one!
Here are some "proofs" I dug to showcase my before and after acidic face :)
AFTER: MAC STUDIO FIX NC40

Do you share the same acidic face like mine? How did you deal with it?
