For Revlon Colorstay users, what shade would you recommend for a nc35-37ish?

And when you get into colors of NW 43 it can be hard to match. Try something at the drug store and if it does not work out... return it
I know it's hard. You'll find it and if you find something different let us know!!

In regard to this...what would you recommend if you're being photographed?

In pictures, from what i've read often. Dont wear spf, because it will cast a white glow (this we all know), so stick with a non spf foundation, depending on what the pictures are for wedding.. etc... wear a matte finish foundation, such as macs studio stick. I heard that from Encore on youtube i think.

Mac NW 43 Options.

***Hello. I am also a Mac Nw43 and I Love it.
Maybelline Fit Me in 355 Coconut is my absolute FAVORITE alternative Right now.
I have the Liquid, Stick and the Set & Smooth Powder and love all three.
Iman is another good one. Iman BB cream is my favorite, and I wear it on days with a no make up look, just natural and it gives sun protection and good moisture. (Clay Medium Deep.) Iman Foundation in Clay 4
***I've never tried it but I've read that Revlon Color Stay in 400 (caramel is also a good one.)
