Matte Powder Foundation for Extreamly Fair/Light Skin Tone?


This is my first post here so I hope everyone is doing well and I really need some guidance so I hope maybe someone can help me find a product or products that would work for me! Here's a bit of info/history about my skin...


I have very light/fair skin that is very oily. I have always had trouble finding any foundation color that is light enough for my skin. My former and sadly discontinued go to was Loreal Mattique in color Soft Ivory which surprisingly was the only color light enough for my skin in drugstore brands and brand names. It had a wonderful flawless matte finish that did not oxidize to orange or pink after a while of wear. I would set it with MAC Blot Mattifying Setting Powder in Light (which is actually light).


So, due to some circumstances I don't use liquid foundations too much anymore, although if anyone has recommendations that would work of love that as well! I am looking for a pressed powder foundation that has very light colors with if any undertone maybe very slightly warm that has a matte finish?


Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Hope you have a good night!!๐Ÿ™‚

@neptune22 The BareMinerals BAREMINERALS - BAREPRO Performance Wear Powder Foundation - Fair 01in the lightest shade (01) might work out for you. I have the same problem finding foundations and matched to the 02 shade.

The porcelain cashmere powder compact from Besame might be a good match for you.
