      If you have oily skin this is perfect...I'm 60 ..and yes I still have oily skin which is good for fighting wrinkles. Love these products. They do not clog pores which can be a problem for oily skin.

                          We recommend testing shade Medium Beige at your nearest ULTA store, where we offer complimentary shade matching services:
                          http://www.ulta.com/ulta/stores/storelocator.jsp

                          Medium Beige is ideal for medium skin tones with neutral undertones.

                      • Q:

                        I went in for a shade match at an ulta location and she said that I was a medium beige. It was perfect but it was also summer. I'm out now and looking to get more but I was wondering if my winter shade would be different. Would you recommend going to a lighter shade? And if so which?

                          You may wish to return to your nearest ULTA store to be shade matched again for your winter shade to ensure accuracy. Fairly Medium may work well. It is ideal for light-to-medium skin tones with cool undertones.

                        Is Golden Medium slightly darker than Medium Beige? I currently use Med Beige, but it is slightly too light now in summer and I have more of a gold cast to my skin. Trying to decide between Golden Medium, or trying Golden Tan.

                          Golden Medium is the same depth of color as Medium Beige, just with a different, more yellow/golden undertone. We suggest testing this shade at your nearest ULTA store:

                          MATTE Foundation features buildable full coverage and will certainly help to even out your complexion and to conceal any dark spots. Fairly Medium may be your best match, though we recommend visiting your nearest ULTA store for complimentary shade matching services:
