What should I do about my super-light (UD 0.5 shade in foundation) skin?

Ok, so my skin is super light and I typically do not get much tan at all. (Only burns, and I prevent it because its dangerous) ). With the summer up ahead, I'm trying to figure out what to do when everyone else is getting glowing tans.

Is such pale skin considered ugly or nerdy?

Honest opinions please.

Honest opinion: I LOVE nerdy (I have a rubik's cube purse, always gets me compliment). And I'm on the opposite end of the trend. I view of beauty is kind of classical asian, in that I love the pale/light look and don't like/want tan ever.

 

So, I don't think pale skin is ugly, and I'm pretty sure skin color have nothing to do with nerdiness. If I have foundation packets that are too light, I actually use a dab as brightener under the brow and stuff instead of eyeshadows. Or at least that's what I did with my Naked sample.

There is no shame in using bronzer or fake tanner. I struggled with this a few years ago- like you, I am very pale and don't really tan- I burn. I wear SPF 45 like a fiend- not only am I a nurse and have seen what melanoma can do to you, but I've also had a scare with a mole that my doctor suspected was cancerous (and thankfully was not).

 

I've learned to love my pale skin. I often get compliments that my skin looks like porcelain or that I look like snow white (heck yes, I'll be a disney princess!) We are all beautiful in our own way, pale, tan or dark skin Smiley Happy

I say no, but maybe that's because I'm even lighter lol  Over the years, I've gotten used to it and have no desire to tan or be darker, but I do love to glow with a little luminizer! We all come in different colors that are all beautiful and confidence is the most beautiful asset of all Smiley Happy

I thought 0.5 was ud's lightest color?

It is, but it's too dark for me lol Smiley Sad

Well thanks for the encouragementSmiley Happy I started to appreciate my my "Snow White" look  (pale skin, dark hair) , but I've gotten some rude comments recently, so I was beginning to doubt myself...

Any products recommendations for my coloring?

Re: What should I do about my super-light (UD 0.5 shade in foundation) skin?

Who on earth made rude comments? That's really unfortunate -- if you can, just let it roll off your back. People still make comments to me about my pastiness (my 13-year old cousin, for instance...and I'm over 30), but I'd rather be pasty.

Co-workers. Today someone said to me "you are always so pale, do you have some sort of sickness?"

I don't - my mom has the same skin, and so did my grandmother.

Don't take it to heart. Those who make this type of comment to others usually have the lowest self esteem for themselves.
