Question Ben Nye Color Help?

I've been thinking about using Ben Nye cream foundation to give my face a more photo-shopped appearance. I've used the brand before when I did a Homestuck cosplay, but of course, trolls are grey. I am not xD

So my question is, what shade would work the best for me? I tried looking at swatches on other people, but a majority of them were the powder foundation. A search for tones that worked well with asian tones was equally fruitless.

Here's a picture of me... excuse the stupid picture xD ...

The colors I've been considering are creamy and golden beige, geisha, and fair.

Do you happen to have a costume store near you? They might have a colour chart on hand so you can compare. Computer monitors show colours differently, so it can be hard to match over a screen.

Other then that, if you're looking for a flawless face you can use regular foundation, just look for one with a high coverage that doesn't go on sheer, using a primer as well can help dramatically. Take a trip to the makeup store (or a drug store) and ask the cosmetition, they'd be able to point you to the right colours and types for your skin.

Camera Ready Cosmetics sells sample sizes, and they do carry Ben Nye.
