Depending on how "airbrushed" I wanna look lol, I use these products in different combinations.

primer: Smashbox photo finish foundation primer or Victoria Secret Pro Airbrush Fx face primer

concealer: smashbox HD healthy fx foundation in Fair F1

foundation: Neutrogena Healthy Skin liquid makeup in warm beige 90

and/or

powder: clinique gentle light powder in 08 glow 

and/or

bronzer: (only because they don't have one in my color so i got the slightly darker because the step up was too light) Mary Kay mineral powder foundation in beige 1.5

Hey girlie, since you're MUFE HD foundation in 180 you would get Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick in Chestnut 9. You can try their "shade finder"... I'll post the link below. Also, Temptalia has a good 'foundation matrix' on her site.

MUFE 180 is described as "for dark skin with peach undertones."

NW is warm and for skin that has red undertones and NC is cool and for skin that has yellow undertones. You can always go and get color matched.

Here is the swatch pic on MAC site:
NW50


NC50

Thanks to the poster that suggested Black Opal's Truly Topaz as an alternative for MAC NC 45 ....I tried it this weekend and it's wonderful....good moderate coverage and inexpensive!

A good match for you would be Revlon ColorStay in Cappuccino, the Combination/Oily skin formula.

I'm going to have to disagree with you there.

RC Cappucino is a better suited match for those with red undertones and the MAC shade NW45.  I am a NC50 wearer in MAC speak and Cappucino was far too red and far too dark for my skin.  When I wear Revlon Colorstay, I have to mix Caramel and Mahogany together to get a colour that truly matches.  These two colours have yellow undertones not the predominant red.

There are some NC50 wearers, who just use Caramel but, in my honest opinion, that colour is a shade too light and your skin will look dull and flat if you use that colour by itself if you're a NC50.  NC45 MAC wearers and up can get away with just Caramel.
