What are the best products for extremely fair skin?

(0) Hearts

My skin is very fair and does not tan.  I spend most of my days in the sun, however, it doesn't tan. So, I've decided to embrace it.  Can someone help me figure out products or colors that will work for my complexion? I didn't want to make a long trip to a Sephora if I could get some helpful answers here :smileyhappy:

If you need details... I have dark hair, dark brows, hazel eyes, and dry skin. 

Thank you!!

If you are as fair as I am I would stay away from bronzers in general.  And contour with a face powder 2 or 3 shades darker than your foundation or skin color.  Hoola is too dark and orange for me and Laguna just makes me look dirty.  The face powder looks more natural but still brings color to your face and makes it look like you have been in the sun.  Unless you can really blend and sheer those bronzers out.  Dandelion is a staple blush for me.  Tarte makes a couple lighter colors that would really compliment fair complexions like Glisten and Dollface.  Sun Beam by Benefit is a liquid highlight but on fair skin it gives a light bronzy glow without the orange color.  Also the Tarte self tanner called Brazilliance its the best for fair ladies.  It looks natural not orange.  Being as fair as I am I have learned that it is always better to go to the store and swatch things.  Sometimes the colors online look nothing like that in real life or on your particular complexion.  Best of luck in your product search.  You have gotten a lot of great suggestions.

I'm also very fair with dark hair and brows.  Here are a couple of my faves -

 

NARS "Sex Appeal" Blush.  So natural looking and almost impossible to screw up.

Dior Nude Tan Healthy Glow "Sunlight".  The only bronzer I've tried that doesn't make me look dirty.

Annonymous1 has some fab suggestions for foundation!  Its true, we have a ton of products for all skin types, even the fair ladies :smileyhappy:

 

I have to work pretty hard on a good tan myself!  Have you tried any of our bronzers or self tanners?  I really do swear by the St Tropez Bronzing Mousse!  I'd suggest giving that a try if you'd like a little bit of color!

St. Tropez Tanning Essentials - Self Tan Bronzing Mousse

You can also fake a tan with bronzing powder.  I love the NARS Laguna Bronzer.  It totally helps me in the winter when I'm super pale :smileywink:

I second the recommendation of this bronzer! I'm really fair skinned and I was worried this would look really fake on me.  It just adds definition and looks really nice!
