Foundation for VERY pale skin?
Hello hello everyone! I absolutely adore my pale skin but I'm having some trouble. I am looking for a light weight foundation or tinted moisturizer that is pale enough for my skin. The problem is that most foundations have a yellow base instead of a pink. I have pink undertones in my skin. Also, most of the ones that I try simply arn't light enough. I have tried everything such as:Almay, covergirl, revlon, neutrogena, maybeline, benefit, smashbox, Sephora brand, clinique, bare minerals, Laura Mercier, and Mac. All in the lightest Shade the carry. All too dark! As you can see I am growing tired of my search! I adore the Laura Mercier oil free tinted moisturizer in porcelain. But it was far too yellow and still too dark. If you know of any brand or products that would meet my needs would be fantastic! XOXO

I completely understand your frustaration.The best solution I've found to my super pale skin is mixing foundations.  Illamasqua makes a liquid foundation that I use sparingly, as it's practically white, to lighten my other foundations (MUFE's HD Invisible Cover in 110 and LORAC's Breakthrough Performance in SMS 1).  MUFE especially makes both yellow and pink based foundations.  Just a warning if you plan to use Illamasqua's Skin Base Foundation in 1 to correct your foundation: it seems to be a bit drying on my skin and it's a fuller coverage foundation.  That being said, you can sheer it out with a damp brush.  Anyway, I hope this helps!
