I am considering the HD N50 foundation and HD#5 concealer.
I am in Canada so would prefer to order a full size as shipping costs are very high.

Can you tell me if I am in the right ball park for a very olive complexion. I am not very warm...but more of a neutral green with cool yellow rather than neutral peach. In clothing, I look best in cool bright colours, warm lavenders, pinks and jewel toned blues. In makeup I look best in lavender toned pinks on lips. Most colours tend to go too warm or orange on my skin. Can't do anything remotely orange or mustard or warm red! I can wear some coral pinks. I can wear almost any shade of bronze on eyes but need something pink or lavender with it.

Can anyone give me some advice or post some swatches. I can always tweak with some green and brown but would prefer to get a good base tone to begin with.

sorry I don't have photos or a cell phone.

In reading this, I am wondering if you need to try the cooler shades? They will have very little yellow.
